Set in the Amana colonies, Judith Miller introduces readers to Karla. Jilted by her fiancé, Karla packs away her wedding quilts and her plans for marriage. Stephanie’s tale is set in a snowbound Nebraska soddy, where widow Jane and her daughter have taken shelter until the train they were on can continue its journey west. Nancy takes readers to Gilded Age New York, where Ada, a wealthy ingénue, inadvertently causes grave injury to a poor man she once considered quite a catch. Each woman must search her heart, change her plans, and patch together a tender, unexpected life filled with love. Bonus recipes and craft projects make this book a wonderful gift.
