A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother.
In Sarah's Quilt, our indomitable heroine Sarah Agnes Prine, the courageous pioneer woman introduced in These Is My Words, shares her homespun wisdom and her heartache as she contends with life in the Arizona territories at the turn of the last century. Sarah's Quilt opens in 1906 after years of drought have devastated the cattle ranches of Arizona. Sarah is faced with starving cattle, a dry well, and romantic advances from a scheming neighbor.
