Very enjoyable, quick read. I found the narrator a friendly, down home type. But still waters run deep! ( )

This book, in places, had me chuckling. There was only a small part that sort of bored me. Turns out a paisley print was called "Persian Pickle". Queenie Bean was a very nice, young farm wife and I liked her a lot...all the characters were likable in their own way. ( )

The Persian Pickle Club gathers to quilt, gossip and share the ups and downs of life such as illness, births and deaths. One member suffers a terrible loss, after her husband is found murdered. Rita, the newest member of the group, who wants to be a reporter is determined to solve the murder. She gets more than she bargained for when she finds out the truth. For anyone who enjoys historical fiction and books about women's relationships. ( )

This was an impulse purchase at one of my local library sales, I think. It's set in 1930's Kentucky during the dust bowl years and featured friendship and quilts. How bad could it be?

Turns out not bad at all - it was excellent. AND what they don't tell you on the cover is that there's a mystery to be solved, so of course I loved it even more.

Queenie is a young farm wife and part of the quilting circle called the Persian Pickle Club. Rita is a newcomer to town and the club; a city girl who has just married a hometown boy reluctantly returned to the farm. Queenie decides to make Rita feel welcome and tries her best to fold Rita into the daily routine of life in a farming community, but Rita doesn't want to be a farmer's wife; she has ambitions of her own to be a journalist and in her pursuit she digs up secrets people would rather remain hidden.

The beauty of this book is that it isn't trying to be anything it isn't; it feels like an authentic snapshot of time and place (and warning: it includes some language common to the time that we consider verboten now). It doesn't make any moral judgements and the plot doesn't adhere to the strict definition of justice. And that's all I'm saying because anything else would spoil it. Let's just say I was giddy over the way it surprised me.

It's an easy read with potential to be a comfort read as well. Definitely one of the better impulse buys I've made. ( )

More laid back than the previous book I read by this author, kinda a slice of life for Great Depression era America with a lot of sewing and quilting in the mix which I enjoyed. That said it did have some more intense parts so heads up for racial violence and sexual assault. Reminded me of Fried Green Tomatoes but sadly not as queer. ( )
