by Jodi Barrows
Genre: Historical Fiction
Synopsis: In the first book of a Quilting Story series, the four cousins-with social graces, charm, and a love for quilting-will face the anguish of life on the frontier in 1856 with every turn along the wagon trail. Raging storms and adversities hit the small band of travelers. Relieved to finally arrive at the abandoned military post at Forth Worth, Texas, they begin the hard work of establishing a new home. When trials follow them, they must decided to become true warriors of their hearts, minds, and souls or fall to the sufferings of prairie life.
From the back of the book
Review: This book seems like it should be up my alley-I love historical fiction and women's fiction. But this book was not written well. The dialogue was so cheesy and inexpertly written. I felt like I was reading a book written by an amateur writer in a creative writing class. Perhaps the author was able to finesse her writing skill throughout the book but I just couldn't read anymore.
