During the Civil War, North Carolinian Jo Beth Davidson maintains her love for John Wesley Rutherford, a ministerial student in Philadelphia who supports the Union, and as the conflict ends she makes a quilt with a design of crosses and lilies to symbolize the providence of God

Zondervan House
With the death of her father, Jo-Beth, her brother, and their mother, Johanna, move in with relatives in town. There, Johanna makes a living sewing her exquisite quilts and Jo-Beth discovers a special friend. Kind, thoughtful, and deep, Wesley Rutherford draws Jo-Beth like a magnet. . .and their attachment to one another becomes strong. Strong enough to endure separation while Wes studies in Philadelphia. Strong enough to make their future together seem certain. . .until the Civil War forces a decision that places Wes at odds with friends and family. Can their love survive a war that will rend a nation in two? Like the pieces of silk, velvet, and ribbon in one of her mother's quilts, the patchwork events of Jo-Beth's life will be knit together by God into a pattern of their own--one of sorrow, joy, and grace. . . .
Johanna's daughter falls in love with a seminary student who is cast out from the southern community when he chooses to fight for the North.
