When Sarah Hart’s son and daughter-in-law move back to Maple Hill, they begin to restore the abandoned Victorian home where Sarah’s father grew up. One day, while looking after her twin granddaughters, Audrey and Amy, they discover a secret passage and a long-lost quilt that could hold the answers to an old family mystery. Along the way, with the help of her faith, Sarah unravels the mysteries of the human heart and deepens her relationships with friends and family.
As an expert hobbyist in quilt restoration, Sarah starts to work on the antique quilt‒and she discovers strange clues that form a pattern almost as complicated as the quilt pattern itself. But as any quilter can tell you, even the most complicated patterns can be broken down into simple manageable pieces. Follow Sarah as she ultimately sews up the mystery.
