Sarah’s Quilt: A Novel of Sarah Agnes Prine and the Arizona Territories, 1906
Date: April 2007
Duration: 16 hours 50 minutes
In Sarah’s Quilt, our indomitable heroine Sarah Agnes Prine, the courageous pioneer woman introduced in These Is My Words, shares her homespun wisdom and her heartache as she contends with life in the Arizona territories at the turn of the last century. Sarah’s Quilt opens in 1906 after years of drought have devastated the cattle ranches of Arizona. Sarah is faced with starving cattle, a dry well, and romantic advances from a scheming neighbor. In addition, she must try to save her brother’s family, who are victims of the great San Francisco earthquake. Sarah’s voice is indeed as comfortable an old quilt, and her many fans will eagerly celebrate her return.
“Older, tougher, wiser, Sarah enchants with her plainspoken energy and honesty. The title may suggest a gentle tale of domestic comfort, but the book is as straightforward, gritty and persistent as the woman who inspires it and as memorable as the landscape where she carves out her life.--Publishers Weekly
