Book Review: A Patchwork Past by Leslie Gould
When Sophie Deiner returns to the Amish community few welcome her back. As she recovers from an illness, she befriends a group of migrant workers and begins to advocate on their behalf, opposing her ex-boyfriend. While Sophie enjoys her respite the quilt shop owner, Jane Berger, shares the story of her Amish ancestors and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Sophie becomes even more convinced she needs to fight for the powerless.
In A Patchwork Past, Leslie Gould provides a strong story and deals with a difficult subject matter which continues to be relevant today. She seamlessly weaves history into the story to provide more depth and details. I would strongly recommend this book.
