SMYTH, Donna E. Quilt. (Toronto) : The Women's Press, (1982). First Printing. Pp. (8),7-121,(3). 8vo, blue card covers with white titles to front and spine. "The quilt which Donna E. Smyth's first novel takes as its title draws together a special Canadian story, the story of a small group of people in rural Nova Scotia. Hazel, Sam and a handful of women who piece together a quilt for a local raffle confront an unusual tragedy in their community -- a tragedy that lays bare the raw plight of a battered wife in their midst. In language that is at once straightforward and haunting, 'Quilt' dramatizes the powerful events that touch ordinary lives." - from the rear cover. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 7.00
