Christmas is just around the corner in the Hudson Valley. Nell and her friends at the Someday Quilts shop should be making eggnog and finishing up the stitching on their last homemade gifts, but when an arsonist strikes and a beloved teacher becomes a suspect, the ladies rally behind him to clear his good name. Will they succeed in time for him to spend Christmas among loved ones or will this be a chilly winter for the town of Archers Rest?
A holiday bonus trip to Archer’s Rest with a bit of a message too!
Just because a person is a bit of a mystery doesn’t mean there is anything sinister afoot. Charlie is a veteran who has returned after serving in Afghanistan and is now a teacher in Archer’s Rest. Nell meets him when she is doing a quilting project with the kids at the school. He doesn’t stick around while she is in his classroom even though a little teacher participation would have been appreciated. She understands he is adjusting to his non-military life but others seem to think his is strange because he keeps to himself. When his house starts on fire many suspect him of arson because his failure to acclimate to civilian life. Nell decides to get to know him a little better and maybe find the real culprit that started the fire. It is then that she learns about Charlie’s grandmother and her Cathedral Windows quilt.
A quilt has a way of bringing people together. The story behind it, the quilters that put it together, or even quilters sitting together working on their own projects. Those sewn seams can bind us together. That is what happens in this wonderful story. A perfect read for the holidays.
