The Goodbye Quilt is a heart-warming, sweet, fun, quick read.
Linda Davis can not believe her grown daughter; Molly is heading off to college. Linda does not want Molly to leave. Linda is not ready to say goodbye to Molly, so instead she decides to drop Molly off at college. Linda also comes up with the idea of making a heritage quilt for Molly as a keepsake. Linda and Molly head off for an adventure that they will never forget.
The Goodbye Quilt is a heart-warming, sweet, fun, quick read. This book is the perfect weekend read. Mothers and Daughters can relate to this book. It was funny as Linda thought she still had a lot to teach Molly but it was really Molly who had something to teach her mother. The act of loving and letting go. I really felt like I got to know Molly and Linda on a personal level through the memories. It was nice getting to know Molly as a little girl. The freak out moment Linda had about wanting to adopt a child from Haiti was funny. Her husband is the rock and he calmed Linda down. This book made me interested in wanting to learn how to quilt. This book is worth your money.
