SHE MAKES WONDERFUL QUILTS. BUT CAN SHE STILL FIT INTO THE PATTERN OF HER AMISH LIFE?
Rebecca Zook feels stuck like the stone in the crick on her Lancaster County farm. She yearns to be an artist–but her faith instructs her to beware the sin of pride. She should marry godly Jacob—but does she truly love him? Then Englisher Gregory Pinckney comes to live on her farm with his horse, Bojangles. When their friendship becomes more romantic, her heart is torn in yet another direction.
A horse insurance scam endangers Gregory’s life. Can Rebecca find fortitude in her faith? Is there a way into Gregory’s heart?
And will the stone of her life finally break free so she can become the person she yearns to be?
“Like a quilt woven with many dexterous hands, Burgess weaves a page-turner tale of intrigue and romance… A witty novel, full of humor and intelligence, with memorable characters who feel life-like enough to hug.” ELIZABETH OBERBECK, author of The Dressmaker (Henry Holt & Co.)
“Acclaimed playwright Granville Burgess is a great writer and in his first novel, a tender, romantic book, his prose sings!” STEVEN S. DRACHMAN, author of the award-winning Watt O’Hugh series (Chickadee Prince Books)
