A six-year-old boy goes to spend the summer with his grandmother, Alida, in a small Minnesota town. With the men all gone off to fight, the women are left to run the farms. There's plenty for the boy to do - trying to help with the chores; getting to know the dog and the horses, cows, pigs, and chickens.

But when his cousin Kristina goes into labor, he can't do a thing. Instead, the house fills with women come to help and to wait, and to work on the quilt together. This is no common, everyday quilt, but one that contains all the stories of the boy's family. And as they wait, and work, the women share these stories with the boy.

In this spare, affecting novel, ordinary life and ordinary things take on a new meaning, and the bond between a boy and his grandmother shines through.

    " Took a while to get into. Didn't have very many interesting parts. Not a very good ending. "

    " Gary Paulsen is a great author. (Hatchet) I was particularly drawn to this title due to my obsession with them (quilts) I was not disappointed. Today we make quilts from "designer" lines of fabric. This story told of an era where the "quilt told the story and the story was our past". Great book. "

    " I like Gary Paulsen's books. I read this aloud to my daughter and found it to have enough of the war in it for her to grasp the seriousness of it without being too graphic. It is a sad book, but it is about carrying on amidst the trials that surround us. A good message no matter what age. "
