Honour Metcalf’s quilting needlework is admired by a wealthy customer of the Boston Mantua-maker for whom she works. In need of increasing her earnings, she agrees to create an elaborate white work bridal quilt for the dowager’s niece. A beautiful design emerges as she carefully stitches the intricate patterns and she begins to dream of fashioning a wedding quilt of her own. When Honour is falsely accused of thievery and finds herself in a perilous position, merchant tailor Joshua Sutton comes to her aid. As he risks his relationships, reputation, and livelihood to prove her innocence, the two discover a grander plan - a design for love.
I enjoyed the story of Honor and Joshua. The trauma that Honor must endure is terrible. First losing her parents and brothers on the way to America, leaving her to care for her young sister. Being pelted in a destructive hail storm. I won't share any more of her traumas for fear of spoilers. Through it all, Honor learned to trust the Lord with everything. Joshua learned this lesson too, to trust the Lord with even the small things.
How Honor gets her quilt is an amazing tale!
I think this would be a good listen for anyone who likes the Revolutionary period or anyone who likes a good clean romance.
The narration seemed a little stiff and slow at first. I upped the speed and it was a bit better.
