Just before Sarah leaves town to visit her daughter Jenna, Sarah's friend Ella Buttonwood comes to her with an exciting discovery: She's just found an old quilt behind a false wall in her basement, and the patterns and fabrics prove what her family has claimed for generations-that her house was a stop on the Underground Railroad!
Did runaway slaves seek refuge in Maple Hill? Could their little town have been instrumental in the flight to freedom? By the time Sarah gets back to Maple Hill, everyone in town is excited about the idea, and the city has started raising money to turn Ella's historic house into an Underground Railroad Museum. Sarah has her doubts about the quilt though. Could it really be as old as it looks? And when Ella disappears, along with the museum funds, Sarah must unravel the history of the quilt to learn what happened and find the money! Can she discover the secret hidden in the stitches?
