15. The Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas
This book was so hard to get through. It was selected as the book of the month for my bookclub back in December or January and I just now finished it. It was a slow read as it should have been for its setting in the 1930's Dustbowl era. I am a fast paced type of gal so it did drag. Out of 196 pages, it finally picked up around 101 and I couldn't put it down. The story is of a women's quilting club and the fabric that knits these groups of ladies together. A newcomer joins them and stirs up a deep old secret that the club has sworn to take to the grave. The story is heartfelt and shows the warmth that women can share in friendship.
