A SINGLE THREAD by Marie Bostwick (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
It’s a long way from Texas to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn realize she’s found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was her wake-up call to chase her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn’t. Little does she know it will bring a trio like Abigail Burgess, her niece Liza, and Margot Matthews through her door.
Troubled and angry after her mother’s death, Liza threatens to embarrass her aunt Abigail unless she joins her for quilting classes. A victim of downsizing at the peak of her career, Margot hopes an event hosted by the quilt shop could be a chance to network.
As they stitch their unique creations, the women form a bond they’ll be grateful for when the unexpected provides a poignant reminder of the single thread that binds us all.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrators, Pam Ward and Lorna Raver. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
