I finished reading this book in 3 hours. It was the most moving and compelling novel I have ever read. While amazed at how strong this group of women was, they were each struggling with a battle of their own. This book shows you how you can lean on friends in your time of need, and they will always be there for you. It also shows how everyone deals with their own pains and struggles in their own way, but it doesn't mean they love you any less. This novel is a must read for everyone.

This book was awesome. The women were working together for cancer awareness and research and had to come to terms with things in their past. Many important themes were hit on and it's a book I would recomment to anyone and doubly to someone who has faced cancer or post-abortion syndrome. The realities of living with cancer and the heartache of the terrors of abortion were shown in this wonderful novel. The women's faith in God helped them to face their problems and be able to move on with their lives.

Format: Paperback
Ever since meeting Lauraine Snelling at a writers conference a few years ago, I look forward to an opportunity to read one of her books. I just finished The Healing Quilt. It's a powerful story. My daughter is 18, and the possibility of someone so young going through breast cancer had never occured to me.
Perhaps because of my daughter's age, I strongly identified with Kit's struggle with the loss of her daughter. The synergy of the quilting group brings each woman through her loss to healing. I might not make the same decisions--but the growth reflects the characters we come to know in the book. It made me long for a simpler lifestyle, where I could volunteer for community events and spend time with friends.
Read The Healing Quilt. You will meet yourself in one or more of the women.

Format: Paperback
This gentle, amused, and sympathetic book is rather like a warm quilt on a chilly night. The situations are compelling, though not all the characters succeed; the hispanic maid's English is annoying to anyone who knows a lot of recent hispanic immigrants! But she ties the story together into a very readable book, in which the religious elements are integral and attractive -- no easy task! It would be enjoyed most by a devout Protestant reader, but it's pleasant for anyone.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book expecting to enjoy it. After all the subject matter seems rich with possibilities of spiritual truth and emotional resolution. I was sorely mistaken.
"The Healing Quilt" is absolutely disappointing. The plot is irritatingly contrived. The conflicts are miniscule. (Elaine "deals with unforgiveness". And all that's happening is a petty feud with her neighbour over nothing!) The resolutions (when they actually occur)are simple and unrealistic. After disappearing for more than 7 months, Mark slinks into Aunt Teza's hospital room and Kit flies into his arms "I love you, honey. It's all okay!" There is no communication or real substance in this relationship. The book as a whole has very little depth and the clichéd emotion is predictable. I found the characters extremely unsympathetic and stereotypical. The character of Garth particularly was infuriating with his judgemental and tyrannical "I am the husband" attitude. And it must be nice to live in a world where no one has to go to work at a real job and has copious amounts of time to grow roses and quilt and sew all the day long. There are so many useless characters and situations. By the end of the book, one is left with a fistful of threads that were never woven into the plot but were just left to dangle. Whatever happened with Ryan? With Elaine and George's son and his girlfriend? What in the world is Healing Touch? Thomas' sister and father? What about the mammogramy unit? The research to be done? The women's center? Everything is left hanging out there without any resolution - we must just be expected to assume that it all works out in the end.
In terms of the book's Christian emphasis, the spirituality is unnatural and manufactured. It seems more like an afterthought with no realness or relevancy.
