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.

    Injustices are fought in a Nebraska prison.

    Jane Prescott is a woman sentenced to ten years for man slaughter, but while in jail she forms friendships and longs for the day when she will see her daughter again. Max Zimmer is the man who has never doubted Jane's innocence and will do anything to set her free.

    Three women are brought together under usual situations, and face unexpected obstacles.

    A jail is definitely an interesting setting for a novel, if I do say so myself. Since I've been a long time Stephanie Grace Whitson fan, I knew I had to give it a try and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were well developed and there was plenty of action, with escape attempts and more.

    I especially liked the character of Jane because of how throughout the book she really came out of her shell and she was complex character who had many layers, and it was wonderful to see them fall away. And of course Max was quite the gallant hero, and he fought admirably for Jane. I think out of the other side characters I really liked Mamie Dawson, who was a sort of mothering figure to the ladies.

    Overall, I would say that this is an excellent read, and I loved the freshness of the setting. This book moved along steadily, at a good pace, and I really liked how much action this book surprised me with :) This is a book that I would definitely recommend. Thanks!

    I received this as an ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Thank you!

    Received this as a gift & what a wonderful book it was! I just can not imagine what life would of been like in a prison in the 1800's. This was one of those books that I had a hard time putting down and then when I did I found myself thinking about those ladies! Don't pass this book up you will not be disappointed. Job well done! A+
