Unable to find a job both practical and fulfilling, she takes a temporary position at Elm Creek Manor helping its reclusive owner Sylvia Compson prepare her family estate for sale and after the death of her estranged sister. Sylvia is also a master quilter and, as part of Sarahs compensation, offers to share the secrets of her creative gifts with the younger woman.

As the bond between them deepens, Sarah resolves to help Sylvia free herself from remembered sorrows and restore her lifeand her hometo its former glory.
