"please say there is a sequel"
In this dramatic sequel to Stranger at Stonewycke, authors Judith Pella and Michael R. Phillips heighten the suspense in their moving Christian fiction series, The Stonewycke Legacy. With World War II looming on the horizon, Allison and Logan Macintyre's once-idyllic relationship has become a shadow of its former self. With Allison in London, and Logan working as a British spy in France, they are spending more and more time apart. Can their marriage survive with the world at war?
Little did Maggie Duncan know how great the sacrifice she would be making. Forty-seven years have passed since she was separated from her beloved Scotland and her beloved husband, Ian. More than time and oceans seem to have conspired to keep them apart, but Maggie continues to trust in the Lord and never gives up hope. Through forgiveness and acceptance, she comes to believe that all things happen according to God's will and in His time.
Reunited after their harrowing time spent apart during World War II, Allison and Logan have successfully patched their marriage and discovered a new level of commitment to one another. But when Lady Joanna dies in 1971, changes begin to reshape the lives of the Stonewycke descendants.
The ladies of the Maintown, Oregon church are all abuzz when they learn of the new and single circuit-riding preacher that will be coming through town. They all decide to inspire their daughters to make a quilt to welcome him, which soon results in a competition between the girls as each tries to out-sew the other. But Zach Hartley is unlike any preacher they've ever seen - he's clumsy in the pulpit and does women's work rather than praying over the sick.
When it comes to quilting, Maggie Newcomb is all thumbs. And nobody rubs it in more than Emma Jean Stoddard. But Maggie swallows her ire for one simple reason: she has a crush on Emma Jean's handsome son, Colby, and doesn't want to ruin her chances. So she works hard to become the best quilter in Maintown. Her plan seems to be working...until Tamara Brennan comes to town.
