Genre: Historical Fiction/Short Stories
The eleven long short stories in “Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads combine history, mystery, action and/or romance, and range from drug trafficking using Guatemalan hand-woven wallets, to an Antebellum U.S. slave using codes in her quilts as a message system to freedom; from an ex-journalist and her Hopi Indian maid solving a cold case together involving Katchina spirits, to a couple hiding Christian passports in a comforter in Nazi Germany; from a wedding quilt curse dating back to the Salem Witchcraft Trials, to a mystery involving a young seamstress in the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire; from a 1980’s Romeo and Juliet romance between a rising Wall Street financial ‘star’ and an eclectic fiber artist, to a Haight-Asbury love affair between a professor and a beautiful macramé artist gone horribly askew, just to name a few.
Copy Received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest review
Since I read S.R. Mallery before I had an idea about her style of writing. I enjoyed "Unexpected Gifts" and I really enjoyed "Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads." The author delivers very powerful short stories and each one left an impression. What I loved about this collection is the stories had a little bit of everything, from love to suspense to historical events. It's impossible to read this beautiful and not feel changed and affected. I highly recommend and enjoyed it!
