Description
When her estranged sister dies, political campaign adviser Lucy Toomey returns to their small hometown. Lucy's sister Alice, who suffered from a mental disability, lived a quiet but rich life in Nilson's Bay. Part of her eccentric will stipulates that Lucy must take up temporary residence in the house before she can inherit it. Soon, Lucy meets her late sister's friends, a lively group of women who meet regularly to quilt together. Daphne Olsen is a single mother of four daughters. Rinda Charles is a chain-smoking, Bible-touting African American woman and a recovering alcoholic. And finally there's Celia Van Damm, a gay art teacher who's unlucky in love. Lucy is drawn into their lives and begins to confront her own past, as well as the guilt that kept her estranged from her sister for so long...

display_description "Years of long workdays ... as a political campaigner are about to pay off now that Lucy Toomey's boss is entering the White House. But when her estranged older sister, Alice, unexpectedly dies, Lucy is drawn back to Nilson's Bay, her small, close knit Wisconsin hometown. An accident in her teens left Alice mentally impaired, and she was content to stay in Nilson's Bay. Lucy ... got out and never looked back. Now, ... Lucy has taken up temporary residence in her sister's cottage, and begins to see the town, and Alice's life, anew."-- back cover.
