This would be easier if I were writing about someone else.
Then I could change it, fatten up the thin parts and leave
out the dull ones, turning them twice like frayed collars
and cuffs, making them over into something more romantic
than they really were, but then the remembering would be
neither so painful, nor so sweet. I suppose you can’t have
one without the other…
Evangeline Glennon knows plenty about life’s highs and
lows. Still, she feels lucky, surrounded as she is by
people who care deeply: Papa, who’s never lost his Irish
brogue or the twinkle in his eye; endlessly practical,
generous Mama; and steadfast best friend Ruby. Romance
would be too much for a girl like Eva to expect. Then
again, love has a tendency to find those who aren’t
looking for it…
Out of a clear blue sky, a dashing young aviator makes an
impossibly gentle landing in Papa’s Oklahoma wheat field.
After taking her up in his plane, “Slim” leaves Eva with
an exhilarating new perspective—and an even more precious
gift that changes her forever.
But that’s only the beginning. The world is changing, too—
and only the strongest in body and spirit will weather
what is to come. Now, while tracing from afar the progress
of the brave young barnstormer she knew so briefly, Eva
stitches her heart and soul into intricate quilts whose
images take extraordinary form from the heartbreak and joy
of parallel lives…
