I have just started to read this book and I am finding it really interesting, it's  about a young Quaker girl travelling to America from Dorset and trying to settle into a new Quaker community in Pennsylvania and learning about the runaway slaves, there is a lot of information about quilts and quilting and Tracy Chevalier actually made a quilt so that she would be know first hand what it was like. I am sure it will go on to include the Underground Railway which was a way of helping slaves to escape, I am sure that if you enjoy quilting you will enjoy this book.

I'm putting it on the library list now. It sounds just my sort of book.
