Review: The Beach Quilt By: Holly Chamberlin

The Beach QuiltThe Beach Quilt by Holly Chamberlin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*****This is A First Reads, Thank You Goodreads*****

The Kanes and The Bauers, two families, friends, children that are friends, even co workers, but when one of their daughters become pregnant, secrets of the past resurface, bonds get tested, and each member has to grow in their own way.
Ms. Chamberlin evaluates not just the relationship between the families, revealing their innermost thoughts and private discussions, but those within the family structure, between adult friends, and between the adolescent friends and siblings. Although at times the book seemed a bit too long, those relationships and thoughts I think were essential for the story, especially for the ending. Some characters were harder to relate to, like Cordelia in her self absorption which was similar to her mother's, whereas Sarah's character was so painfully well written that your heart reaches out of your chest.
This is a good weekend read. Get some Kleenex ready.
