My Thoughts on This Book:
 
The story is set in North Carolina during America's history where blacks were not free, but slaves. At the beginning, we are introduced to the town of Greensboro, North Carolina and the local Quaker's. Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan, both knew each other as children. Bruce taunted and teased Flora growing up and now as adults she is having issues with forgiveness and trust towards him. Then the local pastor asks both of them, along with Flora's sister, Irene, to take part in the Underground Railroad to help save a couple that is pregnant from slavery. Armed with their faith, and a quilt stitched with a map to help them lead the way, they embark on this journey to save these two American's. Will their past affect the trip? Full of adventure, a little romance and a whole of history, this book was an easy read and an easily enjoyable one as well. I love reading the "Quilts of Love" series books. This was just as good as the other one.. Look forward to reading more...


ABOUT THE BOOK

2nd in the Quilts of Love series

When Quakers Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan embark on the Underground Railroad, they agree to put their differences aside to save the lives of a pregnant slave couple. With only her mother’s quilt as a secret guide, the foursome follows the stitches through unknown treachery.

As they embark on their perilous journey, they hope and pray that their path is one of promise where love sustains them, courage builds faith, and forgiveness leads to freedom.
