Feel the uncertainty, doubt, and danger faced by the pioneer
women of Kansas as they defend their homes and pray for
their men during the Civil War.
We think the Civil War took place in the South, but the
plains state endured their share of battles and tragedy. Not
only did Kansas and Missouri experience a resurgence in the
terrorist raids that had plagued them in the years before
the war, but the Confederate Army tried several times to
sweep across the Great Plains and capture the West.
Stitch of Courage, the third book in the Trail of Thread
series, tells the story of the orphaned Maggie Kennedy, who
followed her brothers to Kansas in the late 1850s. The niece
of Margaret Ralston Kennedy, the main character in Hubalek's
Thimble of Soil book, Maggie married the son of Deborah
Pieratt, whose story was told in the Hubalek's Trail of
In letters to her sister in Ohio, Maggie describes how the
women of Kansas faced the demons of the Civil War, fighting
bravely to protect their homes and families while never
knowing from one day to the next whether their men were
alive or dead on the faraway battlefield.
Twelve quilt patterns are stitched into this story.
