Author: Barbara Smucker
Illustrated in full color. Selina's family has a conflict of its own when the American Civil War breaks out - they are Mennonites and their religion forbids them to go to war.
Learning that they are in danger, Selina's father decides to move the family to Canada, where they can start a new life free from religious persecution. Before they leave, Selina's grandmother presents her with a patchwork quilt, a gift linking the generations.
Authentic quilt designs frame each of the illustrations in this moving story about family values and the importance of passing on traditions.
