2nd in the Quilts of Love series

When Quakers Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan embark on the Underground Railroad, they agree to put their differences aside to save the lives of a pregnant slave couple. With only her mother’s quilt as a secret guide, the foursome follows the stitches through unknown treachery.

As they embark on their perilous journey, they hope and pray that their path is one of promise where love sustains them, courage builds faith, and forgiveness leads to freedom.

I have really been enjoying Abingdon's Quilts of Love series of books that weave a story around a quilt. Jennifer Hudson Taylor has written a mesmerizing portayal of the quest for freedom sought by so many. Path to Freedom is a multi-layered story that will tug at the heart. Juxtaposed against the heart-wrenching journey to free the slave couple is the story of Flora and Bruce's tenuous truce-a truce to which Flora reluctantly agrees, although she is certain the boy who is responsible for the whole town knowing her as Beaver Face hasn't changed a bit! The message of faith is strong and practical without being preachy as the characters wrestle with their beliefs and how those beliefs impact their actions. You don't want to miss this one!
