Book Two of 'The Quilt Chronicles'
Lincoln, Nebraska, 1883
Successful businessman Sterling Sutton was all about keeping up appearances. When he dies unexpectedly, it’s the people whose lives he touched that will have to deal with the legacy he left behind. The Shadow on the Quilt tells the stories of those people – his rich young widow Juliana, his grieving aunts, his construction business foreman Cass and his now-penniless mistress, the mother of his only child. God’s love reaches out, in some surprising ways, to turn a tainted legacy into an instrument of love and beauty.
The people in Shadow on the Quilt were revealed in all their humanity – good and bad, exhibiting strength and weakness. The changing impact of a relationship with God was clearly portrayed in several lives, as people learned to forgive, to make choices for the greater good, and to love each other. Through all the ups and downs of their lives, I found myself loving the various individuals in this story.
Stephanie Grace Whitson has once again proven her ability to hold the reader’s attention while using the genre of fiction to cause some soul-searching and dispense hope. I was sorry to reach the final page of this engaging story.
(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review.)
