Two heartwarming stories are contained within one volume—Susan Wiggs’s “The Goodbye Quilt,” in which Linda, piecing together a quilt for her daughter who is leaving for college, realizes that making new memories is just as important as cherishing those from the past, and Sheila Roberts’ “A Wedding on Primrose Street.”
THE GOODBYE QUILT by Susan Wiggs
Linda Davis is driving her daughter, Molly, across the country to start college. As her only child readies for this big change, Linda is torn between excitement for Molly and heartache for herself. Who will she be when she is no longer needed in her role as mom? On the trip, Linda pieces together the scraps that make up Molly’s young life—the hem of a christening gown, a snippet from a costume. But in stitching the quilt, Linda realizes that making new memories is as important as cherishing those from the past.
A WEDDING ON PRIMROSE STREET by Sheila Roberts
As a wedding planner, Anne Richardson has seen mothers of the bride turn into Momzillas, and she’s determined not to do that when it’s her daughter’s turn to get married. But once Laney gets engaged, all bets are off. Anne becomes obsessed with giving Laney the perfect wedding she herself never had. And that wedding needs to be held in Icicle Falls at Primrose Haus, the perfect setting, with owner Roberta Gilbert at the helm. Linda is the best at event planning but no expert on mother-daughter relationships, especially her own. Can these mothers and daughters put aside their differences to pull off the perfect wedding?
