ABOUT THE BOOK
Conflict develops in the South,
Four granddaughters travel into uncertainty,
And Grandfather sells their precious home.
In the first book of A Quilting Story series, the four cousins-with social graces, charm, and a love for quilting-will face the anguish of life on the frontier in 1856 with every turn along the wagon trail. Raging storms and adversities hit the small band of travelers. Relieved to finally arrive at the abandoned military post at Fort Worth, Texas, they begin the hard work of establishing a new home. When trials follow them, they must decide to become true warriors of their hearts, minds, and souls or fall to the sufferings of prairie life.
Join the four women on a passage of friendship, love, and self-discovery as lives are mended around the quilting frame.

My thoughts: If you've been following my blog for long you know that I love quilts and quilting. I also love history, particularly Civil War time period history. This book takes place right before the Civil War. A grandfather protecting his family by moving them away from where he believes the fighting will be. I was mesmerized from the start and had to read on and on and on! I'm looking forward to the next one already. Our main granddaughter is quite the stalwart, stubborn gal. She is widowed with a son and takes on the leadership role of leading her caravan of covered wagons all the way to Texas. She faces disasters and comes out stronger for them. And of course there is a special quilt. Will she put her quilt out to show the man wanting to wed her that she is willing? Better read up and find out!
