Linda and her daughter decide to share one last adventure together– a cross–country road trip. As they wind their way through the heart of the country, Linda discovers that the memories of a shared journey can come together in a way that will keep them both warm in the years to come.

Sixteen years later, having travelled the world burdened by remorse, Jessie is suspending her photojournalism career to return home– even if it means throwing her sister's world into turmoil. Yet the truth can do so much more than just hurt. It can bring you home to a new kind of honesty, shedding its light into the deepest corners of the heart.

Noted quilt designer Carl Hentsch has always admired Amish quilts and quilters. Living only a short distance from an old-order Amish community has allowed him to explore their world and come to know and respect some of these quilters and their ability to create beautiful quilts without the use of electricity.

Blocks such as Basket, Log Cabin, and Star fill these pages with bursts and blooms of color. Be inspired!
