Summary
In 1859, a runaway slave and quilter named Joanna traveled the Underground Railroad to Elm Creek Farm -- only to be captured and forcibly returned to Virginia. More than a century later, Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstrom Compson recovers a bundle of letters that Joanna wrote from South Carolina. Reading transports Sylvia into the thick of the Civil War and to Edisto Island in the years afterward, where a group of ex-slaves formed a quilting circle

Summary
When Sylvia Bergstrom Compson discovers a stash of letters in the attic of Elm Creek Manor, she traces a remarkable tale back to 1859. Then, escaped slave Joanna spent a brief period at Elm Creek Farm until she was captured and returned to bondage, leaving her son in the care of the Bergstrom family. Now, if Sylvia is to determine the ultimate fate of Joanna and her son, she must rely on one important clue--the meticulous herloom quilt Joanna stitched and left behind
