This summer I had the pleasure of reading The Secret Stitch by C.Jane Reid. When I first picked it up I was a little worried as it is “fiber fiction” and sometimes books written around hobbies aren’t the greatest. I was very happy to discover that C. Jane Reid is really wonderful author!
Stay tuned to the end of this post for a chance to win your own copy!
The book is centered around Ailee, a Scots-Irish newly-wed who is immigrating to America with the husband she barely knows. There is some mystery around Ailee and why she took this journey. The answer comes out, but you have plenty of time to guess and wonder before it does. No sooner is that question answered then more questions arise. I love that I was constantly thinking and guess what would happen next and why.
C. Jane Reid has a background in history, and uses it well. You feel as if you are right there with Ailee, everything is historically accurate and very intriguing. Not only is the history correct, so is the fiber! Reid finds a way to work the fiber theme into the book that is just seamless.(NPI) Nothing feels shoved in, it just all works together in a very believable way.
In addition to getting a wonderful book, when you buy The Secret Stitch, you also get a crochet pattern for one of the items that plays a prominent roll in the book! The pattern is designed by the talented Laurinda Reddig.
I would certainly recommend this book for all you fiber lovers out there! You can pick up your copy from Amazon HERE. While you’re at it, Laurinda has written a book of patterns as a companion to the Secret Stitch that you can pick up as well, HERE.
