History is thick with secrets—and Pre–Civil War America comes to vivid life—in this stunning and suspense-charged Elm Creek Quilts novel from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini
Abolitionist schoolteacher Dorothea Granger faces the ultimate test of her courage and convictions when the national debate over slavery sets friends and neighbors against one another in rural Creek’s Crossing, Pennsylvania. . . . When her cantankerous Uncle Jacob designs five unusual patterns—and gives Dorothea an urgent deadline for assembling them into a quilt—she reluctantly agrees. But annoyance turns to intrigue when she learns her handiwork contains hidden clues to guide runaway slaves along the Underground Railroad. As her family embraces her uncle’s clandestine mission to help runaways escape to freedom, Dorothea embarks upon a dangerous, heroic journey that allows her to discover her own courage and resourcefulness, newfound qualities that may win her the heart of the best man she has ever known.
