About This Book
Can the Divine Quilter stitch together the torn pieces of Emilie’s heart?
 
Divided between the love of her father and the desires of her heart, Emilie Heinrich must rely on the love and wisdom of the women in her quilting circle for support. Since Emilie is dedicated to her education and to helping her father in his general store, she is convinced she doesn't have time for love. But when a childhood friend returns to St. Charles, Missouri, after serving in the Civil War, his smile and charm captures Emilie’s eye and her heart.
 
Quaid McFarland has a gentleness and humor that causes Emilie to question her indifference toward romance. But her German father sees only one thing when he looks at the young man: an Irish teamster. And Johann Heinrich is not about to let such a man court his beloved daughter.
 
Her father’s prejudices test Emilie’s faith in God’s ability to mend the patchwork pieces of her life. Will she be forced to choose between honoring her father and a future with a husband and family of her own?

    Too Rich for a Bride

    Too Rich for a Bride
    A Novel
    With a head more suited to bookkeeping than a bridal veil, Ida’s dreams include big business- not beaus.    Ida Sinclair has joined her sisters, Kat and Nell, in the untamed mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado for one reason: to work for the infamous but undeniably successful businesswoman, Mollie O’Bryan. Ida’s sisters may be interested in making a match for their determined older sister, but Ida only wants to build her career. Under Mollie's tutelage, Ida learns how to play the stock market and revels in her promising accomplishments. Fighting for respect in a man's world, her ambition leaves little room for distractions. She ignores her family's reservations about Mollie O'Bryan's business practices, but no matter how she tries, she can't ignore the two men pursuing her affections—Colin Wagner, the dashing lawyer, and Tucker Raines, the traveling preacher. Ida wants a career more than anything else, so she shrugs off the suitors and pointed “suggestions” that young ladies don’t belong in business. Will it take unexpected love—or unexpected danger—for Ida to realize where her priorities truly lie?

    Real Girls of the Bible

    Real Girls of the Bible
    A Devotional
    Girls have always formed strong bonds, especially in tough times. This sisterhood of women is celebrated in the latest devotional from Faithgirlz. Real Girls of the Bible uses the stories of thirty authentic Bible women to illustrate the power of the girlfriend community to surround and support girls as they become real women of God, while emphasizing each girl’s individuality and God’s special plan for her. Featuring women from both the Old and New Testaments---including Esther, Leah, Sarah, Ruth, Martha, Mary, and Elizabeth---each devotional centers around the woman’s faith-journey and includes a scripture verse, prayer, suggestions for further reading, and even an item called Body Talk intended to promote self-esteem. The text is sprinkled with Fun Facts (Miriam led the singing of the first song of worship ever recorded in Scripture!) to keep girls engaged and interested. In every story, girls see God’s holy character and glimpse their own potential in relationship with Him, while learning the qualities they must develop---such as relationship, authenticity, and loving-kindness---on the way to becoming real girls themselves.

    Two Brides Too Many

    Two Brides Too Many
    A Novel, The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek...
    Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west—away from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado to start new lives for themselves as mail-order brides.   Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight.   But when the ladies disembark at the train depot, neither fiancé Patrick Maloney or Judson Archer awaits them with open arms. The well-bred Sinclair sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in the wild, frontier town—a place where fire threatens to reduce the buildings to rubble, the working women strut the streets, rogues will gamble for the shoes on one’s feet, and God’s grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks.   Two sisters, Two missing misters, A shocking welcome to the wild west that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their dreams­ and the hope for true love.
