Birds in the Air A Novel by Frances O’Roark Dowell


“A truly enjoyable read! Quilters will relive their own first patchwork steps along with Emma as she searches for her place in a new community. Non-quilters will experience vicariously Emma’s discovery of the power of quilts to connect, heal, and restore the soul.” — Marianne Fons

What a delightful book! Frances weaves a story with characters that remind us of people we know in our every day lives – so relatable. As I read, I was transported out of my chair and into the town of Sweet Anne’s Gap and the lives of the quilters that I can understand so well. The surprise ending makes me hope that Emma Byrd’s story will continue on and become a series of lovely quilting stories. — Annie Smith,
