    2. “Sewing Holes” is a true Southern tale without lacking any collard greens or “bless her hearts”. Kuhn writes in a direct, straightforward voice that draws the reader into her deeper underlying philosophical tone.

Honey can't help but say what she thinks, and her forthrightness can get her into trouble.

When she tries to nudge her mother to move through her grief, Honey makes a grave mistake that drives a wedge between them. How will she cope with losing the love and support of her one remaining parent? This is a heartfelt and often humorous view of lo [...]

    5. A debut novel written by a woman who has been a wordsmith for most of her life. As the editor of the newsletter Scribbles, she has been generous in her honoring of other writers. Now it's time that she herself is honored with the same grace and love.I was lucky to have read this book in the galley stage and blurb it, and I am thrilled to know that it is now available on bookstore shelves. I admire the courage of Finch in writing a book crafted with such precision and love.I also bless Kuhn's hea [...]

    6. Sewing Holes fuels a unique experience entering the home of an ordinary family sharing the ups and downs in life.

    7. A great read! It was fun because I found myself recalling my own buried past, as some of the scenes reminded me so much of that time. Very poignant, but very joyful as well.
