Críticas

"Whitson's "The Key on the Quilt "is much deeper and richer than the usual historical romance. I devoured it in one gulp and couldn't put it down. No one immerses me in a story world like Whitson. Highly recommended!"

-Colleen Coble, author of the Lonestar series and the Rock Harbor series

"In a richly textured novel about the sting of betrayal and the power of truth, three women discover what it means to love, and be loved. Equally tender and stirring, "The Key on the Quilt "is not to be missed!"

- Tamera Alexander, bestselling author of "A Lasting Impression" and "The Inheritance"

Whitson captures the reader''s attention from the first sentence. You will not want to put the book down. The characters in the first Quilt Chronicles book are well thought out and well defined and wonderful to read about as we learn their stories.--Patsy Glan"RT Book Reviews" (03/01/2012)

I was immediately hooked the minute I opened this book. You could not ask for a more unique story in the most unlikely setting. Taking place in woman's prison Whitson weaves her tale delightfully. The characters all have incredible depth and you immediately feel like they are friends. I found the setting absolutely fascinating and I appreciate all the research the author does for her books. While one might think this story revolves around a quilt that could almost be deceiving. The quilt plays a small but important role but this is not your typical "quilt book."
Whitson is an excellent author and I rarely read anything from her that I'm not completely taken with. She writes about people and places that she knows and she does so with effortless ability.--Melissa MacDonald"Random Refreshing Reviews" (01/27/2012)

"From the opening line, "The Key on the Quilt" held me captive. Three women, their lives connecting in a hard place, must each learnlessons about the power of love and truth. As their faith grows, so will yours. Don't miss this excellent novel!"- Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of "Belonging"and "Heart of Gold""

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Wonderful Read! 18 de octubre de 2012
Por Charity U - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
Wow, did I ever enjoy this book! I've never read any books before about life in a women's prison in the 1800s in Nebraska, and I'm guessing you haven't either. This was an enlightening read! While some "enlightening" books can be quite boring, this one was riveting. I'm making it sound like an interesting text book, but it's nowhere close to a textbook. It's a delightful historical fiction type of book. I really enjoyed getting to know each of the main women: Mamie, Jane, and Ellen. They each had a very different role in the book - one was in prison, one was the female ... guard/supervisor/boss, and one was the prison warden's wife. All of their stories were neatly melded into the one book. It was clear how each woman's faith in God grew, though "The Key on the Quilt" wasn't a preachy book at all. I highly recommend that you read this wonderful Christian fiction! And I can't wait to read the next book, The Shadow on the Quilt (The Quilt Chronicles).

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great book! 20 de mayo de 2012
Por Shondra - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
The first in the Quilt Chronicles series, The Key on the Quilt is a fascinating read. Not always one to read historical fiction, I did love the time period this book was set in, 1876.

Jane's story is spellbinding from the beginning. From the onset of the incident, to the long awaited outcome, her story is ever gripping. I seemed to go through an array of emotions with her, from that of sympathy, to that of sheer enjoyment.

Mamie's story was a bit different, I wasn't sure what to think from the start. I assumed she was an uneducated worker, one that few people would have contact with. However, Mamie's strong, quiet presence was one the others would look too, often depending on, in hard times.

And then there was Ellen, whom I guessed to be a spoiled weakling, never coming through for anyone. Little did I know the story she would tell throughout the book!

At times I found myself skipping through paragraphs, not out of boredom, but looking for answers that were yet to come. I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would, and cannot wait for book 2! Unfortunately, it will not be released until Spring 2013.

I give this book 4 stars!

**I was given this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.**

This one is the first of a series and I cannot wait to see the next books in the series.

Jane Prescott is in the Nebraska State Prison in 1876 for killing her abusive husband. She is advised by Agnes, another inmate, to learn to do her time--just get through it. It's tough and Jane does all she can to just bide her time.

Mamie Dawson is the women's matron, overseeing the workings of the women's section of the prison. Martin Underwood is one of the prison guards who helps Mamie. While his outer appearance isn't all that comely, Mamie comes to see his heart in surprising ways.

Reluctant to make the move to Lincoln, Nebraska, to live across from the prison, Ellen McKenna is the wife of the prison warden. Ellen gets a peek into the women's ward of the prison and sees a need that she desires to see filled. Mamie is in total agreement of Ellen's desires and builds a plan to educate the women there, as well as give them jobs to do--much like the men in the prison have. Jane desires something to do to help her pass the time and what Ellen and Mamie plan fills Jane's desires.

Mamie and Ellen set up a sewing area in the women's ward and collect needles, fabric, scissors and sewing machines so that the women can make things to be sold. Jane makes a Courthouse Steps quilt for Rose with all of Rose's favorite colors and after she is released, takes it to Rose with a key to a small trunk on the quilt. She wants to reconnect with her daughter but finds out that her sister has allowed Rose to believe Jane is dead. Rose finally remembers everything that happened with her step-father's death and desires to see Jane.

Other players in this book are Ian McKenna, Ellen's husband; Pearl Brand, a trouble-maker in the women's ward; Max Zimmer, a doctor who knew Jane before she was an inmate; and Rose, Jane's daughter currently living with Jane's sister.

Every now and again, I find a book that not only entertains me, but also adds to my spiritual life. This book is such a one. Mamie introduces the concept of Grace Notes. Basically, there are no circumstances in which God's grace cannot reach, and when you see those instances of grace--those are Grace Notes. This book was a Grace Note for me, just reminding me to look for them

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Unique Story that Captures the History-Lover 26 de abril de 2012
Por Holly Renee - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle
The Key on the Quilt is a unique novel that is certain to capture the history lover. Stephanie Grace Whitson has taken a unique step in Christian fiction and ventured beyond the realms of the typical story-line found in the historical genre as she explores prison life among females.

This novel introduces the reader to three protagonists. Each of these protagonists struggle with something different. One is an actual prisoner, the other is the matron, the other is the warden's wife. These protagonists have the potential to reach a variety of readers, as one may be able to identify with a certain protagonist more than the others due to their life's circumstances.

This novel does an excellent job of showing readers the essence and heart of Jesus--which is to reach those who are broken and hurting. What better place than a prison? I love how this novel delves into a Christianity that the modern church is slowly forgetting about. It's wonderful to see the direction this story takes.

Another great part of the novel is the symbolism at the end. It's one of those "wow" moments that leaves readers reaching for the nearest tissue.

The only problem I have with this novel is the amount of back-story and explanation. It seemed to slow the story down. I would have loved to have seen it worked in rather than explained. At some portions, the back-story was very appropriate. At other times it felt un-necessary.

I definitly recommend every history lover give The Key on the Quilt a try. It's so far from the ordinary story, that one can't help but find themselves pleasantly surprised by this novel.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Barbour Publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Injustices are Fought in a Nebraska Prison 24 de mayo de 2012
Por Faye - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
Injustices are fought in a Nebraska prison.

Jane Prescott is a woman sentenced to ten years for man slaughter, but while in jail she forms friendships and longs for the day when she will see her daughter again. Max Zimmer is the man who has never doubted Jane's innocence and will do anything to set her free.
Three women are brought together under usual situations, and face unexpected obstacles.

A jail is definitely an interesting setting for a novel, if I do say so myself. Since I've been a long time Stephanie Grace Whitson fan, I knew I had to give it a try and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were well developed and there was plenty of action, with escape attempts and more.

I especially liked the character of Jane because of how throughout the book she really came out of her shell and she was complex character who had many layers, and it was wonderful to see them fall away. And of course Max was quite the gallant hero, and he fought admirably for Jane. I think out of the other side characters I really liked Mamie Dawson, who was a sort of mothering figure to the ladies.

Overall, I would say that this is an excellent read, and I loved the freshness of the setting. This book moved along steadily, at a good pace, and I really liked how much action this book surprised me with :) This is a book that I would definitely recommend. Thanks!

I received this as an ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Thank you!
