The Goodbye Quilt book. Susan Wiggs does an excellent job of evoking the emotions that come to the forefront when you children leave home. It is a time of discovery for the child, but also for the parents as they try to rediscover themselves sans kids and Miss Wiggs brings this out. I highly recommend this for anyone who has gone through this, may be going through it, or will eventually go through it. I also recommend it to those who enjoy a strong, emotional read that tugs at the heartstrings, but leaves you with a sense of contentment at the en. .

For my parents, life at home was enough

This is a sweet story about a mother driving her daughter across the US to attend a college on the East coast. molly, the daughter is having second thoughts about leaving her boyfriend behind and her mother Linda is wondering what on earth she is going to do with her life now that her only child is leaving the nest. What will her husband and she talk about now that Molly will no longer be the focus of their lives? Will they be able to reconnect and move into the next phase of their lives together? As they drive across the US Linda works on a memory quilt she is making for Molly, full of fabrics and momentos saved as Molly has grown up, it helps them share stories from Molly's life with her parents.

I could relate to this book with my daughter and only child in college. In the book the main character is making a quilt of the life of her daughter using pieces of material of different clothes she wore and ribbons as well as also other members of the family. All the while she was making this quilt she was reflecting the life of her daughter as she grew up and is now leaving home for college and also dreading the empty house that will be left. As she takes her daughter to college across the country she is also beginning to accept the changes that are happening and gradually letting go as all parents have to do as one phase of life ends and another begins. I like the way the quilt and the mother working so diligently to get it finished wrapped into the story. This is a sentimental read with a good ending to it. A must read for all mothers whose children are leaving the nest. I enjoyed reading this book on my kindle.

The Goodbye Quilt was a very slow moving story. It might be more interesting to someone who quilts. The mother's feeling were clearly described but not the daughters feelings about the quilt her mother was making. The story ended abruptly and I would have liked to know more about the mother's life after her daughter went to college and her daughter 's life through college and after graduation.

This book just never took off for me. I love quilts and quilting, loved the idea of the book being centered around a fabric/quilt store and I've been a fan of most of Susan Wiggs books. When I saw this on audiobook, I grabbed it right up excitedly. I have to say it was drudgery to listen to it....it droned on and on...and on. The story line was not very interesting and the characters left me cold. I love so many Susan Wiggs books with the many twists and turns and unexpected outcomes as her trademark - this was frustrating for me as the reader...don't bother.

Really enjoyed the writing and story. Took my daughter across country by car last year for a new job she received.
We never put on the radio and she did the driving. Ate in great restaurants and had a wonderful, mother daughter
experience. Helped her set up her new home. Shopping always brings us together!!
Related to this book so very much. Want to buy it for her to read.

It was a lovely book and i enjoyed reading it. It was especially enjoyable as i knit and have made over 100 afghans and I usually make them for family and people I meet along the way. I thought the end was most wonderful and it showed the maturity of the daughter when she told her mother that the quilt was mainly for her , that they were her memories and the mother realized that what the daughter said was true. I have never made a quilt but hopefully my afghans will stay with the people I have given them to and I will be remembered

It was not as good as all of her other books. Characters limited and not as well developed as her other books. I usually live her books but this one was different.

Good story but not a page turner. I could almost know what was going to happen next. But a good mom and me story
