CHARLESTON, S.C. - New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick will visit three CCPL branches in December to discuss her latest book, Hope On the Inside

Showcasing her gift for writing with warmth and humor, Bostwick explores the effects of the U.S. prison system on its female inhabitants in an inspiring novel about friendship, finding purpose, and the power of creative expression. 

Bostwick is well known for her "Cobbled Court" quilting series and her trademarks of strong prose and heartwarming themes of female friendship, family and quilting. Her novel The Second Sister was adapted for the Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie “Christmas Everlasting.”

A Single Thread
Moving from Fort Worth, Texas to New Bern, Connecticut to open a quilt shop begins a new life for Evelyn Dixon, bringing unexpected connections with a trio of women who come to the shop for quilting classes.

Between Heaven and Texas
Welcome to Too Much--where the women are strong-willed and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell Templeton and her twin sister Lydia Dale were children, their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But it's well known that the females in Mary Dell's family have two traits in common--superior sewing skills and a fatal weakness for men.

Apart at the Seams
Twice in her life, college counsellor Gayla Oliver fell in love at first sight. The first time was with Brian - a lean, longhaired, British bass player. Marriage followed quickly, then twins, and gradually their bohemian lifestyle gave way to busy careers in New York. Gayla's second love affair is with New Bern, Connecticut.

From Here to Home
Mary Dell Templeton prefers the quiet charms of Too Much to the bright lights of Dallas any day. She's relieved to be moving back to her hometown--and bringing her cable TV show, Quintessential Quilting, with her. There are just a couple of wrinkles in her plan.

Promise Girls
As children, the Promise sisters were caught in the vortex of their famous mother's overwhelming ambition. Now, as adults, they hope to come to terms with their childhoods and their current lives with the help of a documentar film maker.

Just in Time 
Grace Saunders has always assumed that bright, clear lines separate right from wrong. Now that idealism is blurred by dilemmas that test her beliefs about marriage and loyalty, and she must look to her new friends and inside herself for answers.
