Summary

Sam Kinkade is finally feeling at home as a minister in rural Toms Brook, Virginia, content with his life and Shenandoah Valley congregation. But his plans to welcome the area's growing Hispanic community are being met with resistance. Fortunately, when the church-run community center is threatened, a stranger named Elisa Martinez walks through his door and Sam realizes he has found a woman capable of building bridges. Elisa isn't looking to make connections. She has come to Toms Brook to hide. But despite her fears of discovery she is enchanted by the beautiful work of--and the friendship offered by--the women who invite her to join their quilting circle. And even though she fears the consequences for both of them, she finds herself powerfully drawn to Sam, and to the generations-old love story rooted in the town's past. Will she and Sam repeat the past, or can they find the love and the freedom they seek at last?

Poignant and Timely

Written in 2009,this story is profoundly relevant to today's moral climate.Despite that,it is truly romantic and full of friendship.How the reader is engaged in a mystery that includes immigration,women's rights,teen angst, poverty, child abuse,religion, quilting,promises,migrant work,bilingualism,good food and prejudice is amazing. Without a doubt, I will eagerly reread and enjoy again this marvelous book.

Fabulous

This was a rereading for me and the second time around feels even better than the first. From the first book in the series we meet again the older woman - Helen, who is a total queen of quilting. This time around I appreciated all the quilting references even more, now that I am quilting.

I loved Sam and his outstanding approach to his ministry and believe in standing up for what is right even when it upsets others and lands him in trouble with the law. Elisa's story was so relevant even to today's world. Even wonderful stories like this do not change the world we live in unfortunately. However it does show the value of truth and justice and love. And how wonderful it is when those who believe make a stand for them.

I loved the story within the story of those who hung quilts out with black squares to guide the slaves who were making a bid for freedom, and the story of Dory told through letters found.

The narration by Isabel Keating was amazing, it brought the people alive so well. Totally in love with her interpretation of a well written book.
