“…She stopped suddenly when she heard twigs snapping nearby. She became tense and slowly crouched in the thicket. She could hear the rustling of the tall grasses along the edge of the stream. She could feel the tingle on the back of her neck as fear crept up her spine…” Sarah Parker, an active seventy-something woman, attends a quilt retreat in the Appalachian Mountains just outside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park where she and her new quilting friends create memory quilts, explore native arts and crafts, and enjoy the spectacular mountain setting. The tranquility she enjoys is interrupted by an alarming presence in the forest surrounding Ten Oaks Lodge and Retreat Center. Her curiosity leads her to a family of mountain children struggling to survive alone and the mystery of their missing father. Book 6 in the series.
