Review: Sarah's Quilt
Title: Sarah's Quilt
Author: Nancy E. Turner
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
Reading Level: Adult
Other titles in the series: These is my Words and The Star Garden
The long-awaited sequel to These Is My Words returns to Sarah's family in 1906 after three years of drought have devastated her ranch. Caught between the choice to save her land and the love of a good man, Sarah faces dark challenges of territorial life where everything hangs in the balance. It is a saga of love, connection, and the gift of family.
Another great book! Sarah goes through trial after trial. Struggle after struggle. She is a very strong woman. That is what life was like in the Territories. Those Pioneer women suffered much. I felt as if I was there every step of the way. I enjoyed it immensely and was surprised at how much of a love story there was in this sequel, considering the ending of These is my Words. Warmed my heart. Bravo. It's a wonderful addition to the Sarah Diaries. This is a perfect book for Book Clubs and women all over! You much read this series. I'm obsessed.

Ooh - I bet my stepmother would like this one!ReplyDelete
I have definitely put the first book on my list of must-reads for my book challenge. I'll let you know what I think, but I am excited to read it after your review. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Mary, this book sounds really interesting!ReplyDelete
Oh and I really really loved Shannon Hale's sequels! I'd get ENNA BURNING first, because it directly follows The Goose Girl.
I read These is My Words a while ago and LOVED it. Weird, but I had no idea there were two sequels until I read your blogs!! I picked them both up yesterday, can't wait to read them!ReplyDelete
The cover of this books seems familiar to me. I think I might have seen it somewhere before. Nice review!ReplyDelete
