The Denver Post called this "A book about how times can never be so hard that they can't be eased when people come together."
In the 1930's, hard times have fallen on Harveyville, Kansas. There are no jobs, and no rain. Queenie Bean's highlight of her week is her weekly quilting gathering, the Persian Pickle Club. But when a new member unearths a dark secret, the women must unite to support and protect each other. You won't want to miss this story that explores the true meaning of friendship!
