Summary
When a daring young pilot lands in her Papa's Oklahoma wheat field, Evangeline Glennon is forever changed by their brief encounter and traces his progress as the world changes, stitching her innermost thoughts and desires into beautiful quilts that narrate the trials and tribulations of life. Original.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This would be easier if I were writing about someone else. Then I could change it, fatten up the thin parts and leave out the dull ones, turning them twice like frayed collars and cuffs, making them over into something more romantic than they really were, but then the remembering would be neither so painful, nor so sweet. I suppose you can't have one without the other. . .

Evangeline Glennon knows plenty about life's highs and lows. Still, she feels lucky, surrounded as she is by people who care deeply: Papa, who's never lost his Irish brogue or the twinkle in his eye; endlessly practical, generous Mama; and steadfast best friend Ruby. Romance would be too much for a girl like Eva to expect. Then again, love has a tendency to find those who aren't looking for it. . .

Out of a clear blue sky, a dashing young aviator makes an impossibly gentle landing in Papa's Oklahoma wheat field. After taking her up in his plane, "Slim" leaves Eva with an exhilarating new perspective--and an even more precious gift that changes her forever.

But that's only the beginning. The world is changing, too--and only the strongest in body and spirit will weather what is to come. Now, while tracing from afar the progress of the brave young barnstormer she knew so briefly, Eva stitches her heart and soul into intricate quilts whose images take extraordinary form from the heartbreak and joy of parallel lives. . .

"A lyrical, lush, and lovely novel from a clever and talented new writer." --Jane Green

"A gripping, heartwarming story. . .complete with fascinating characters and a page-turning plot." --Dorothy Garlock
