Smile "The Goodbye Quilt"

I just finished reading the book "The Goodbye Quilt" by Susan Wiggs.

While it's not an earth shattering block buster, it's SUCH a charming book centered around a handmade quilt, a road trip and a mother daughter relationship. I could sure relate to the emotions in the book given I became an "empty nester" about 8 years ago when my daughter moved out to go to college.

I know I've really enjoyed a book when I feel sorry I reached the end. I miss the characters and storyline. I felt like I was in the back seat of the car with them....lol

It's an easy read....and I would think a LOT of the women in here might be able relate to it. You could probably read it in a weekend, but I read it on my lunch breaks while at work.
