The Message on the Quilt by Stephanie Grace Whitson

The Message on the Quilt by Stephanie Grace Whitson is book three in The Quilt Chronicles written in 2012. This is a series of stand alone stories that refer to a special quilt. In this book we meet Emilie, a newspaper reporter and Noah , a professional speaker. He has just a quilt to remember his mother by. On it she has included items that she has told him stories about. Some include stories about his father whom he has never met.

This is a fun story to read. I enjoyed the spunk and determination Emilie has make her dream of being a reporter come true. I enjoyed how helpful Noah was to her and her cousins without them asking for help. I really enjoyed how Noah was able to speak with Colonel Barton in the area and find out the true story about his parents. I also enjoyed the change that took place with the Colonel’s sister.

About the Book

Return to historic Nebraska for the stunning conclusion to Stephanie Grace Whitson’s “The Quilt Chronicles.”

When Emilie Rhodes decides to go behind her newspaper editor father’s back by writing for his competition, the Journal, she begins to interview the speakers at the 1890 Chautauqua assembly. At the assembly, she meets and falls in love with “The Man of Many Voices.” But Noah Shaw’s professional life is only one reason he’s in Nebraska. Noah is on a quest to find answers. But will a treasured quilt bear a message for brokenness – or of hope and healing?

About the Author

A native of southern Illinois, Stephanie Grace Whitson has lived in Nebraska since 1975. She began what she calls “playing with imaginary friends” (writing fiction) 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 appeared on the ECPA bestseller list numerous times 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, was released in 2005. In addition to serving in her local church and keeping up with two married children, two college students, and a high school senior, Stephanie enjoys motorcycle trips with her family and church friends. Her passionate interests in pioneer women’s history, antique quilts, and French, Italian, and Hawaiian language and culture provide endless story-telling possibilities.

    Good Morning,

    I’m not sure how to contact you so am hoping you will receive this. I wanted to let you know that my next novel, Ladies of the Lake, will release in July 2023 through Tyndale House Publishers. In the story I named the girls’ boarding school, Lakeside Ladies Academy. The name of of your blog inspired the school’s name! The school itself is modeled after Miss Porter’s School in Connecticut. My story is historical fiction. If you would like to receive an ARC of the book I’d be happy to send it to you. Just let me know where.

    Many thanks for your wonderful blog posts and reviews of Christian fiction,

    Cathy Gohlke
