Women's Fiction Contemporary
In this compelling, heartwarming novel from New
York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick, one woman
finds new purpose in a new phase of life . . .
“Whatever comes your way, find the happiness in it.” Hope
Carpenter received that advice from her mother decades ago.
Now, with their four children grown, Hope and her husband,
Rick, are suddenly facing an uncertain future, after a
forced retirement strains both their savings and their
marriage. Seeking inspiration and a financial boost, Hope
gets a job teaching crafts to inmates at a local women’s prison.
At first, Hope feels foolish and irrelevant, struggling to
relate to women whose choices seem so different from her
own. But with time, and the encouragement of the prison
chaplain, she begins to discover common ground with the
inmates, in their worries about their children and families,
their fear of having failed those who need them. Just like
her, they want to make something of themselves, but believe
it might be impossible.
Embarking on an ambitious quilting project, Hope and her
students begin to bond. Together, piece by piece, they learn
to defy expectations—their own and others’—and to see that
it’s never too late to stitch together a life that, even in
its imperfections, is both surprising and beautiful.
