Review: A Stitch in Time (Quilt Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Alisha Bouchard - Goodreads

Wow, I am finally done with this book! It was slow going for me until the middle of it and then the pace started to pick up and get really interesting. I may even read the other two books in the series. I would recommend it for anyone who likes historic fiction books. Read full review

About the author (1995)

Young adult author Ann Rinaldi was born in New York City on August 27, 1934. After high school, she became a secretary in the business world. She got married in 1960 and stopped working, but after having two children she decided to try writing. In 1969, she wrote a weekly column in the Somerset Messenger Gazette and in 1970 she wrote two columns a week for the Trentonian, which eventually led to her writing features and soft new stories. She published her first novel Term Paper in 1979, but was ultimately drawn to writing historical fiction when her son became involved in reenactments while he was in high school. Her first historical fiction novel was Time Enough for Drums. She also writes for the Dear America series. She currently lives in Somerville, New Jersey with her husband.
