Helpful Score: 2
Wonderful story. Part of a series called Shenandoah Album with each book about a different family all in the same area. Quilting is a thread that runs throught each book so it has appeal for quilters but if you are not a quilter you will still enjoy these books.The writer does a great job adding historical details about the era.
Beautifully written tale of two sisters who each feel like they have somehow failed, the steps one takes to make up for that failure, and how the other comes to realize they both are just what the other needed.
