This is an FOL Used Bookstore find for a dollar. I tried reading this novel and just couldn't get into it.

Amazon Editorial Review:

"It is the 1930s, and hard times have hit Harveyville, Kansas, where the crops are burning up, and there's not a job to be found. For Queenie Bean, a young farm wife, a highlight of each week is the gathering of the Persian Pickle Club, a group of local ladies dedicated to improving their minds, exchanging gossip, and putting their quilting skills to good use. When a new member of the club stirs up a dark secret, the women must band together to support and protect one another. In her magical, memorable novel, Sandra Dallas explores the ties that unite women through good times and bad."

Persian Pickle is the name used by quilters for Paisley fabric, and this book is about a depression era Kansas farm wives quilting club. But who killed Ben Crook, the abusive husband of one of the quilters? Nobody's telling, but all in the club are claiming responsiblity. Written in the voice of one of the women, it's a delightful book.

It is the 1930s, and hard times have hit Harveyville, Kansas, where the crops are burning up and there’s not a job to be found. For Queenie Bean, a young farm wife, a highlight of each week is the gathering of the Persian Pickle Club, a group of local ladies dedicated to improving their minds, exchanging gossip, and putting their quilting skills to good use.

I recently read that the book is being made into a movie.
