Illustrated in full color. Selina's family has a conflict of its own when the American Civil War breaks out--they are Mennonites & their religion forbids them to go to war. Learning that they are in danger, Selina's father decides to move the family to Canada, where they can start a new life free from religious persecution. Before they leave, Selina's grandmother presents her with a patchwork quilt, a gift linking the generations. Authentic quilt designs frame each of the illustrations in this moving story about family values & the importance of passing on traditions.
