Bestselling author Maisey Yates is at her absolute best with CONFESSIONS FROM THE QUILTING CIRCLE. Readers of all ages and backgrounds will love its powerful, redemptive nature and the empowering message at its heart. Each of the four women in this novel are keeping secrets, each of them trying to deal with their own issues, their own problems, their own grief, and the novel is so beautifully written and so well-paced that, as a reader, I often had to stop and ponder what I would do if faced with the decisions these women have to make and deal with, and take a good hard look at how keeping their secrets have affected their relationships with their loved ones and especially with each other.
Maisey Yates never disappoints her readers and CONFESSIONS FROM THE QUILTING CIRCLE is so good as it delves into a family and their intricacies. The characters are so well presented and the story crafted to suck you in and make you want to keep reading and ignoring the rest of the world while doing so. This is a very emotional walk through these four women’s lives. Each one is dealing with her own insecurities, and feelings of guilt and regret form an ongoing theme for all of them.
I enjoyed the bond between the four women and how it shows how complex the relationship between mother and daughter or sisters can be, and even when you’re close, there are going to be things you hide, which is especially true for Mary, who has some major secrets from her past she kept from her daughters. And it’s wonderful to see Lark, Avery, Mary, and Hannah all overcome their individual hardships and find happiness. CONFESSIONS FROM THE QUILTING CIRCLE is all about family and the past and the secrets that come out are heart tugging. It had me flipping through the pages like a woman on a mission. I had to know what was going to happen!

The Ashwood women don’t have much in common…except their ability to keep secrets. When Lark Ashwood’s beloved grandmother dies, she and her sisters discover an unfinished quilt. Finishing it could be the reason Lark’s been looking for to stop running from the past, but is she ever going to be brave enough to share her biggest secret with the people she ought to be closest to? Hannah can’t believe she’s back in Bear Creek, the tiny town she sacrificed everything to escape from. The plan? Help her sisters renovate her grandmother’s house and leave as fast as humanly possible. Until she comes face-to-face with a man from her past. But getting close to him again might mean confessing what really drove her away… Stay-at-home mom Avery has built a perfect life, but at a cost. She’ll need all her family around her, and all her strength, to decide if the price of perfection is one she can afford to keep paying. This summer, the Ashwood women must lean on each other like never before, if they are to stitch their family back together, one truth at a time…
New York Times Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.
