This best-selling novel by popular author Francine Rivers is now available in mass paper. When Sierra discovers her young ancestor's handcrafted quilt and reads her journal, she finds that their lives are very similar. By following her ancestor's example, she learns to surrender to God's sovereignty and unconditional love.
Aimee Lillys versatile range and skill unite the story of Sierra and Alex, and their marital problems, with that of Sierras ancestor, Mary Katherine, and her husband, who suffer devastating hardships together on the Oregon Trail. Lilly matches mood to voice when Sierra discovers Mary Katherines handcrafted quilt and reads her journal entries, finding similarities in their lives and the nature of their problems. Lilly portrays Mary Katherine with a Southern accent and a nineteenth-century vocabulary, and then slips into a warm tone and modern rhythm in her portrayal of Sierra. Lillys adept pacing and empathy capture this multilayered story of two women searching for meaning during difficult times. With exceptional honesty Lilly delivers a strong, believable performance.
