Overview

The Triumphant Story of a Woman Who Succeeded Against All Odds

"Sarah’s Patchwork" is the first book in the Keepsake Legacies Series.


Abandoned by her destitute father, Sarah Biddle and her younger brother, Tom, are sent west on an orphan train. But no one wants to adopt a girl with a crippled brother to take care of. Until she’s reach Lincoln, Nebraska — and comes face-to-face with Jesse King and Augusta Hathaway.

"Sarah’s Patchwork" is the absorbing story of quiet, unassuming Sarah Biddle — and the hopes, dreams, tragedies, and romance that she stitches into an heirloom quilt. Each scrap of fabric tells of Sarah’s transformation from a frightened orphan girl into a courageous woman of strength and resourcefulness as she stitches… “the tears of the past into a treasure for tomorrow.” Opportunity and disappointment, hardship and loss teach Sarah how the power of true love can heal the broken heart.

Meet the Author

Stephanie Grace Whitson is a native of southern Illinois who has lived in Nebraska since 1975. She’s loved to write virtually all of her life, but began writing fiction (what she calls “playing with imaginary friends”) when, as a result of teaching her four homeschooled children Nebraska history, she was personally encouraged and challenged by the lives of pioneer women in the West.

Since her first book, "Walks the Fire," was published in 1995, Stephanie’s fiction titles have often appeared on bestseller lists and been finalists for the Christy Award, the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award, and ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year.

Her first nonfiction work, "How to Help a Grieving Friend," is now available from Greenbrier Books.



In addition to serving in her local church and keeping up with keeping up with five grown children, their spouses, and their perfect children (i.e., Stephanie’s grandchildren), Stephanie enjoys motorcycle trips with her husband Dan, her family, and her church friends. (Yes! She does own and ride a Honda Magna cruiser.) Her passionate interests in pioneer women’s history, antique quilts, and French, Italian, and Hawaiian language and culture generate endless story-telling possibilities.

Stephanie holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in French with minors in English and Music from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.
