Editorial Reviews


Whitson writes amazing stories.  The second book in the outstanding Quilt Chronicles has characters who are trying their best to forgive those who have hurt them and trying to turn the hurt into something positive. All of the characters tell their story in a way that keeps readers glued to the book until the last page.

As Juliana Sutton snips the threads outlining her dead husband’s name and rips them from a fundraising quilt, she vows to move on. But will the shadow of Sterling’s name stand between Juliana and the man she comes to care for, or will she choose a love she never thought possible?

More About the Author

Stephanie Grace Whitson has made a career out of playing with imaginary friends, and it all started in an abandoned pioneer cemetery. This one's graves are scattered on a tiny corner of land near where the Whitson family lived in the 1990s. That cemetery provided not only a hands-on history lesson for Stephanie's four home schooled children but also a topic of personal study as she began to read about and be encouraged by the pioneer women who settled the American West. Since writing had always been a favorite hobby, it was only natural for her to begin jotting down scenes in the life of a nameless woman crossing Nebraska on the Oregon Trail. Eventually that story took on a life of its own and Stephanie sent off a query letter--expecting instant rejection.

God had a different plan. He blessed Stephanie's beginnings, putting two of her three first books on the ECPA best-seller list and making two of her first nine books finalists for the Christy Award. More recently (in 2012) she received Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award for Best Inspirational Romance. In addition to writing (she has authored more than two dozen books), Stephanie loves antique quilts and pioneer women's history and riding her Honda Magna motorcycle named Kitty. A lifelong student, she earned her Master of Arts degree in history in 2012.

"The flip side of writing," Stephanie says, "is being asked to teach writing and/or speak at various church and community events." She has developed a menu of lectures and workshops that "provide opportunities for me to travel and get to know not only other writers and history lovers, but also students and quilters. I love sequestering myself in a library to do research, but the speaking part of my career has provided some unique and wonderful memories."

And then there's Kitty, the Honda Magna. "In some ways I'm 60," she says, "in others I'm probably about 26. It all depends on the day." On days when her virtual age leans toward the younger side of that equation, she's been known to wake up in the morning and decide to ride Kitty to Canada. And then she comes home and descends to "the catacombs" (the basement office in her Victorian-era house) and heads back into the past to play with more imaginary friends.

This is book two in the Quilt Chronicles. You do not have to read the first to enjoy this second book. The characters and setting are enjoyable. The book is well written and the story is believable. This author, Stephanie Grace Whitson, is an excellent writer. You will enjoy any book she has written.

I gave this book 5/5 stars. The story held my attention and was entertaining. The book finds the two main characters, Juliana and Cass, with issues that should keep them apart. One not trusting and one with issues from the past. How they interact is great to read. I liked how the conversations flowed. I also enjoyed the story line and how it read quickly. I thought the main characters were well written and that every page was worth reading. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction with some clean romance thrown in.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Stephanie Grace Whitson in her new book, "The Shadow on the Quilt" Book Two in The Quilt Chronicles published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. takes us to Nebraska in 1883.

From the back cover: Will past pain unravel the future?

Juliana Sutton has just about everything a woman could want. Her husband is riding a crest of success in the bustling capital city of Lincoln, and Juliana leads various philanthropic endeavors. Once finished, their new home, a spectacular mansion on five acres, will be the envy of all. Then a devastating scandal erupts...

Cass Gregory, the foreman overseeing the Sutton mansion construction, has spent recent years trying to untangle the disastrous results of his own past choices-and wishing he didn't know the truth about his boss. When scandal ignites, Cass longs to comfort Juliana but is convinced her position in society and his past make a relationship impossible.

Juliana and Cass are thrown together as completion of the mansion draws near, each one wounded and afraid to trust. Will the shadow of a name stand between them and true happiness?

Ever see a quilt from the bottom instead of the top? Of course from the top it is wonderful, all the pieces jointly fit together but underneath there is this jumble of thread and stitching that looks absolutely horrendous. Cass has a past that he has not gotten over yet. Juliana all of a sudden has to deal with trauma, loss and scandal. Getting these two together is a lot like making a quilt beautiful to see on the top but a mass of work on the bottom. It takes God to make a beautiful quilt out of our lives and Ms. Whitson has given us a wonderful story to show us how He does it. This is a wonderful, fun book.

The Shadow On The Quilt was a nice read. I read book one, The Key On The Quilt, last year and enjoyed it, so I was somewhat looking forward to reading this novel.

I thought the story was interesting and I liked how there were a couple things in the story that I didn't see coming.

The characters were good. Not favorites of mine, but I did like them. Another thing I liked about The Shadow On The Quilt was how lyrics to some hymns were incorporated in the story. I didn't care for the Times when the story seemed to repeat itself.

Overall, a nice read. I enjoyed it. :) I will probably read the next book in this series someday.

Format: Paperback
A touching tale of forgiveness.

Julianna Sutton's life looks perfect, but when she uncovers a secret on the night of her husband's death, everything changes. Julianna struggles to reconcile her love for her husband, his death, and trying to forgive, while openning up a home for the friendless.

Can Julianna ever let go of the past and move forward?

Wow, I think this is one of the best books that I have read from Stephanie Grace Whitson! The characters were so well done and genuine, I liked how Julianna dealt with the many obstacles that came her way, and I really was able to instantly connect and feel for her. Cass was really likable, and was an ideal hero because he was sensitive to what Julianna had gone through, and he was the friend that she needed. There were many other great characters, like "The Aunts" and it was interesting to see Jenny's side of the story too.

I loved how powerful the plot was, and it definitely kept me engaged. The Shadow on the Quilt was a book that built a compelling story, with a sweet romance, and a powerful message of forgiveness and moving on. A book I highly recommend.

I received this ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
