Format: Paperback
The Fabric of Life is the concluding volume of the saga of the Royer family- a real life German Baptist family from the Cumberland Valley in southern Pennsylvania whose DNA still lives in the genes of more than a few contemporary Pennsylvania residents and whose values are still reflected in much of local culture.

Although actually a very prosperous family in their time, the hardships of life at the turn of the nineteenth century—even for the Royers—are often astonishing to a contemporary reader. Nonetheless, despite the not infrequent occurrence of great tragedy, the guideposts in life were clear for the Royer family, their values were unquestioned, and their lives were joyful. A deep and abiding faith in God carried them forward through it all.

Although written for children, the simplicity of the prose in The Fabric of Life is welcome even to adults, and reflects the simplicity of Royer family life. It’s an easy read that will illuminate your own life as well as illuminate the role of the German Baptists in helping to shape the character of the nation.

It took me a while to get to books 2 & 3, but when I finally did, I had to keep reading to find out what happened to these delightful characters. I enjoyed the chapters about Snow Hill (The Nunnery). I wanted to get finished so I could get to the end and find out how the characters finished their lives. Recently I went through the homestead again, for a refresher on the house. As I read this volume I could picture the girls in their bedrooms, the kitchen, etc. It is a wonderful Trilogy that I would recommend.

"Fabric of Life . . . is a warm look at a family close-knit by ties of tradition and affection and an excellent description of how demanding life was on the frontier. The Beck sisters-in-law bring this time period to life . . . they have delved extensively into Pennsylvania German Society in all its aspects and their reverence for this story has made it so authentic their books could almost be used for research. The book comes with a glossary of Pennsylvania German terms, recipes, a genealogy, and charming black and white illustrations."
