Abstract:

When Sofia Parker is presented with a valuable heirloom trunk on the eve of her grandmother's funeral, she is stunned. She never thought she'd be chosen as the next guardian. For generations, the trunk and the precious silk quilt hidden inside it have been protected by the women of her family, all highly skilled in the art of needlework and worthy of the honor. But Sofia, a 41-year-old mother of four, still struggles to thread a needle in less than ten tries and limits her sewing to buttons and patches. And yet Sofia's grandmother chose her. Tales about the priceless quilt have been spun at every family gathering for as long as Sofia can remember. But no one ever mentioned the diary hidden within its folds recorded by her great-grandmother in 1913. Rich with history, the words of the diary reveal the fascinating story behind each piece of the quilt's tapestry and the women whose lives it touched. The diary weaves a captivating tale of family secrets, opulent castles, clandestine romance and a shocking mystery. But can it possible be true?
