Reactions to The Basement Quilt – an AQS novel

If you love quilts and love reading, you’ll love the first book in Ann Hazelwood’s series about the Colebridge, Missouri, community. It features plucky florist Anne Brown and her family and friends. Lots of love, family secrets, and mysterious guests — it’s a great read. And a great listen — it’s available in audio, too.

People love this book!! The Basement Quilt is #5 on the bestseller list for books about the St. Louis area or by authors from there as compiled by the St. Louis Independent Booksellers Alliance and based on sales at Left Bank Books, Main Street Books, Pudd’nhead Books and Subterranean Books.

And Ann herself has been getting these responses to her debut novel:

Just two recent reactions: Someone stopped me at the grocery store this morning. As she told me how much she loved the book, tears filled her eyes because it reminded her of her own family.

Then, someone left a message on my phone in tears because she felt such love from a family she NEVER had. She grew up in an orphan home in England; wishing she had a family like this.

Seems like this book really does reach people’s hearts! Click here to read more about the book and how to order it in paperback or on audio CD. Or, call AQS toll-free at 1-800-626-5420 Monday – Friday, 8 am to 4 pm Central time.
