When an antique bridal quilt appears under mysterious circumstances at the vintage clothing shop where Rachel Grant works, she is fascinated. She has never been able to resist handmade textiles from the past, for she believes that through the ages, women wove protective magic into their fabrics in order to mark the important events of their lives: birth, marriage, and death.

But there is more than good in the quilt's magic power. Day by day Rachel sees and feels the power growing, as she senses the quilt influencing her thoughts and actions. Much as Rachel's logical mind longs to deny the supernatural, the aura of evil coming from the quilt is terrifyingly real, and it seems to carry a sinister legacy into the lives of the people Rachel loves.

    " A little slow here and there, and the end was kind of anticlimactic for a book that trufax involves possession. But I thought the mystery was very decent, all things considered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terri Tinkel | 2/1/2014

    " I'm not sure I really enjoyed this story. It had witchcraft and a lot of interesting information about quilts and antiques but I found the writing difficult to follow. Often a descriptive paragraph would begin and I wasn't sure who the subject was until the end of the paragraph...it made for confusion for me. The last 1/4 of the book really got interesting and the storyline picked up but I had to force myself to finish the book just to figure it out. The characters were very quick to agree on everything and accept what was happening with little reaction. I do think this could have been a much more exciting story if it had been rewritten more carefully. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/24/2014

    " This was interesting to people who quilt. I enjoyed the book but shared it with a friend who REALLY enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myndi | 1/18/2014

    " This book really took me by surprise! It was a bit slow and confusing to start out with, but as it went on I became hooked. There's a mix of a subtle romance developing along with some paranormal aspects that I personally love. But none of it was so far out there that the average romance reader wouldn't have also enjoyed this book. Not to mention an element of mystery for those types of readers! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 BC | 1/16/2014

    " This is my car book.This book disturbs me. The subject matter has shifted from where it was and I am not certain I will finish this book. It got a little strange with black magic and such. Had a love story mixed in also. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaunte | 1/13/2014

    " Very intriguing book. Barbara Michaels always uses interesting themes for her murder/mystery books. This one did not disappoint! I learned about vintage needlework. Great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samira | 5/25/2013

    " Barbara Michaels is not literature, she is pulp fiction. But I love her books, have read them every few years since I was a teenager, and find them to be constantly, wonderfully engrossing. Reading them feels like visiting friends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie Bostic | 2/12/2013

    " What a strange, strange book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michaelle | 1/31/2013

    " Read this book first in my the series loved it so I had to go back and read the rest of them. I am on a mision to read all the books by this author in all of her pen names. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 9/6/2012

    " I did like the book but I found it was very long...... I was intrigued with the story but glad when the end arrived. Sort of a sad story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 8/16/2012

    " A nice and interesting change of pace from my usual thrillers/mysteries. I also stitch so the history unraveled by the main piece of the story kept me very interested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Petersen | 8/30/2011

    " The plot is thin, and so are the characters; but the premise is intriguing, so intriguing that I dashed right through it and enjoyed it immensely despite its obvious flaws. "I stitched my soul right into that quilt"; is it magic or is it a tapping into a force beyond what we can easily explain ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayni | 7/25/2011

    " Barbara Michaels' books fascinate me. Maybe it's the paranormal that she laces her books with. I love handmade quilts too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 R R | 6/30/2011

    " Just finished this one, Barbara Michaels writes better as Elizabeth Peters or maybe I just like Egyptology better. This book had lots of promise as a story but the somehow just felt too contrived but that's a romance for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Narielle Living | 5/23/2011

    " I have read and re-read all of Barbara Michael's books. I absolutely love her weaving of the supernatural into her stories. This book gives the reader a solid sense of the area as well as a unique mystery. Well worth the read, as are all her books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 5/10/2011

    " Loved the quilt theme, and the way it was a piece of artwork and magic in the story.
    Very moving.
    Made me want to take up quilting, but I can't sew a stich.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " well told but couldn't quite buy premise or too tidy ending "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carlene | 3/3/2011

    " Well..it was disappointing. Too many little plot lines that never seemed to develope.
    Could have been a good story but no real detail....Sorry Kara. Will keep it if you want to have alook though. "
