Girl receives fortune-telling quilt.
Girl blames quilt.
Girl seeks out quilt-maker.
Girl mends and finds friendship and love in an avant-garde little town.
2¢ Worth: The Fortune Quilt has the 3 c's = a fun cover, concept, and characters. The concept is executed well and it is easy to get sucked into the array of eccentrics that inhabit the small Arizona town of Bilby. However, what really wooed me was Carly's close knit relationship with her family. I always find it refreshing when a character really values and loves her familia. Carly is close with her father and two sisters. But all of that is tested when her deadbeat mom suddenly reappears after 17 years. The Fortune Quilt by Lani Diane Rich is a quick and quirky (3 star) story about forgiveness, following your heart, and love.
Whippersnappers: There is profanity, mentions to sex, sexuality, homosexuality, transsexuality, alcoholism, and Wicca.
