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
