I was so excited to find the book in my mailbox today. I have read the first three chapters, and I am enjoying getting to know the characters. So far, I find Eleanor to be the kind of grandmother I can relate to. I have hopes that Nell will develop into an interesting protagonist.
O'Donohue's writing style is very straight forward. She describes the settings in a no-nonsense way. It is when she describes the quilts that I think her descriptive writing shines so far. I have a feeling this will be a fairly quick read for me. Then I can start designing the quilt.
