The Nashua Toadstool Bookshop is thrilled to have Karen Coulters retuning with her third book in the York Harbor series, Patchwork to Healing. Karen will be with us Saturday July 16th at 11am.
With each patchwork quilt, she seeks to heal broken hearts . . .
Rebecca Mills doesn’t create her beautiful quilts to keep busy; she needs to make them. Piecing the intricate designs gives her purpose, providing comfort to those who receive them and relieving her deep-seated guilt—if only for a little while.
When her emotionally detached foster brother, Ben Daly, returns to York Harbor, Maine, he reopens old wounds, creating a pattern of pain and bitterness, and reigniting the love Rebecca thought she’d long ago cut from her heart.
But can Rebecca fulfill their foster mother’s dying wish, or will the delicate patchwork of her life be torn apart by the painful scars from her past?
KAREN COULTERS grew up in the Midwest with roots in New England. Traveling to the coast of Maine every summer was a highlight of Karen’s younger years; so, it only made sense that she move there after graduating. Married in 1982, they relocated to New Hampshire, became a mother of two, and grand-mother. Artistic expression has always been in her DNA. She’s performed on stage as a vocalist, actress, and speaker. She’s a writer of scripts that depict real life in order to make someone think and consider change. However, being a novelist has been her lifelong dream. She says, “Timing is everything, and my time came in 2017, when the urge to write became something that I could no longer ignore.”
