Did you know that in the founding days of America many citizens were persecuted because of their religious beliefs?
Read about this period of American history in the historical series, Tapestry of Love.

All historical events actually took place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland in the 17th century. Each book has an appendix at the end that delineates truth from fiction and sources and would make great gifts for history lovers or those who want to learn more about the early days of America.

I just finished this book and loved how the historical accounts were validated in the end of the book. The author did a great job in taking these accounts and creating a beautiful story. Loved it so much I just downloaded the next two books in the series!
I enjoyed reading the book. From what I have learned from researching my family history, this books follows what I would have expected of a family that moved to America in the 1600’s or so.

A step back in time that pulls you in and makes you a part of the family and their world.
