The smallest items can hold centuries of secrets. Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunts island estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house.

Inspired by true events, Kelli Estes brilliant and atmospheric debut serves as a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing, and the power of our own stories.
