Summary
In 1849, 19-year-old Dorothea Granger and her strongly abolitionist parents are at the mercy of Uncle Jacob, a bitter, hard-driving man with a tragic past. Dorothea has just been removed from her teaching job to make way for the dour Mr. Nelson. Jacob puts Dorothea to work on a quilt of his design and is adamant that she make it according to his peculiar specifications. When Jacob is found dead, the Grangers are even more stunned to learn that his nearby Sugar Camp, site of his famous maple syrup operation, has doubled as a station in the Underground Railroad. Dorothea realizes that her quilt is a map to the next station and bravely continues her uncle's work, despite the great peril to herself and the runaway slaves she is helping. Steeped in rich period detail and gentle romance, this seventh entry in Chiaverini's "Elm Creek Quilts" series wonderfully captures the courage of the Underground Railroad supporters and the runaways who risked everything to find freedom
