Editorial Reviews

“Whitson’s The Key on the Quilt is much deeper and richer than the usual historical romance. I devoured it in one gulp and couldn’t put it down. No one immerses me in a story world like Whitson. Highly recommended!”

-Colleen Coble, author of the Lonestar series and the Rock Harbor series

"In a richly textured novel about the sting of betrayal and the power of truth, three women discover what it means to love, and be loved. Equally tender and stirring, The Key on the Quilt is not to be missed!"

- Tamera Alexander, bestselling author of A Lasting Impression and The Inheritance

"From the opening line, The Key on the Quilt held me captive. Three women, their lives connecting in a hard place, must each learn lessons about the power of love and truth. As their faith grows, so will yours. Don't miss this excellent novel!"
 
- Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Belonging and Heart of Gold

I was immediately hooked the minute I opened this book. You could not ask for a more unique story in the most unlikely setting. Taking place in woman's prison Whitson weaves her tale delightfully. The characters all have incredible depth and you immediately feel like they are friends. I found the setting absolutely fascinating and I appreciate all the research the author does for her books. While one might think this story revolves around a quilt that could almost be deceiving. The quilt plays a small but important role but this is not your typical "quilt book".

Whitson is an excellent author and I rarely read anything from her that I'm not completely taken with. She writes about people and places that she knows and she does so with effortless ability.

Whitson captures the reader's attention from the first sentence. You will not want to put the book down. The characters in the first Quilt Chronicles book are well thought out and well defined and wonderful to read about as we learn their stories.
