A SINGLE THREAD
This novel is written for women who have been inspired, or have inspired themselves. Issues such as divorce,
starting over, cancer and friendship
are all handled delicately and at times heartbreakingly. However, in a market saturated with books with similar themes, this one fails to distinguish itself from the pack.
Evelyn Dixon gets two bombshells dropped on her in a fairly short period of time. Her husband leaves her in a typical midlife crisis, and she develops breast cancer. Evelyn's quilting business and her roads to healing -- emotional and physical -- involve a host of characters who showcase women's strengths and weaknesses. (Kensington, Nov., 328 pp., $14.00)
