After his mother is killed, four-year-old Clay Sizemore finds himself alone in a small Appalachian mining town. At first, unsure of Free Creek, he slowly learns to lean on its residents as family. Thereâs Aunt Easter, who is always filled with a sense of foreboding, bound to her faith above all; quiltmaking Uncle Paul; untamable Evangeline; and Alma, the fiddler whose song wends it way into Clayâs heart. Together, they help Clay fashion a quilt of a life from what treasured pieces surround him. . . .
âA long love poem to the hills of Kentucky. It flows with Appalachian music, religion, and that certain knowledge that your people will always hold you close. . . . Like the finely stitched quilts that Clayâs Uncle Paul labors over, the author sews a flawless seam of folks who love their home and each other.â
âUnpretentious and clear-eyed . . . A tale whose joys are as legitimate as its sorrows.â
âThe Roanoke Times
