Linda Davis'' local fabric shop is a place where women gather to share their creations: quilts commemorating important events in their lives. Wedding quilts, baby quilts, memorial quilts -- each is bound tight with dreams, hopes and yearnings. Now, as her only child readies for college, Linda is torn between excitement for Molly and heartache for herself. Who will Linda be when she is no longer needed in her role as mom; What will become of her days; Of her marriage? Mother and daughter decide to share one last adventure together -- a cross-country road trip to move Molly into her dorm. As they make their way through the heart of the country, Linda pieces together the scraps that make up Molly''s young life. And in the stitching of each bit of fabric -- the hem of a christening gown, a snippet from a Halloween costume -- Linda discovers that the memories of a shared journey can come together in a way that will keep them both warm in the years to come.

Author Bio
Susan Wiggs
Since her first book, TEXAS WILDFLOWER, was published in 1987, Susan Wiggs has written dozens of historical and contemporary romances, and she has been particularly praised for the wide variety of time periods and geographic settings she employs. "When I write, I research deeply but not obsessively," she has said. "I adore accurate research, but honestly, I am not an authority on medieval warfare, organ transplantation, [or] Regency style. . . . You name it. I am not an authority [on it]." Wiggs attended Harvard University, where she sometimes hid romance novels between the pages of her textbooks. Upon graduating, she became a math teacher but began writing in her spare time, inspired by the work of Kathleen Woodiwiss, Bertrice Small, and other novelists she admired. By 1992 she had found enough success as an author to give up her teaching job. Among her most popular books are those in the contemporary Lakeshore Chronicles series, set in the Catskill Mountains. Her work now appears frequently on major bestseller lists, and she has won RITA Awards from the Romance Writers of America numerous times. In addition to her fiction, Wiggs collaborated with her daughter, Elizabeth, on the guidebook/memoir HOW I PLANNED YOUR WEDDING: THE ALL-TRUE STORY OF A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER SURVIVING THE BEST DAY OF THEIR LIVES (2011).
