“A touching story of fragile bonds made strong by love, determination and a welcoming small towns.”
—Virginia McCullough, award-winning author of Greta’s Grace
“Admittedly, upon starting this book, I didn’t expect this first time author to draw me in the way she did. But the more I read, the more I wanted to read about the main characters and those surrounding and supporting them. I highly recommend you wrap yourself up in QUILTS GALORE and cuddle into its warmth. I greatly look forward to learning more about the residents of Wolf Creek Square as this series continues.”
—Barbara Raffin, Author of the St. John Sibling Series
Two years after mourning the death of her husband, Marianna Spencer ventures alone to Wolf Creek, Wisconsin, in search of the perfect fabric for her latest original quilt design. Once there, she spots a For Sale sign in the front window of the quilt shop and makes a brash decision to buy the business.
Back in Green Bay, with her new found excitement rising, the last person she expects to see on her doorstep is Rachel, her step-daughter, with a baby. Marianna has never met the teenager and although reluctant, even resentful, she can’t turn them away.
Living above the quilt shop on Wolf Creek Square, Marianna offers Rachel guidance and deals with her occasional rebellion as the three of them become part of the tight-knit community. Marianna must also decide what to do about the surprising attentions of Art Carlson, the attractive jewelry designer next door.
