Dorothy and Rebekah
I enjoyed it as well, but of course it is a novel and so that means much of it is made up to make a good story from a few facts we know from the Bible. I think the author took a few too many liberties in making Rebekah so out of character for a woman that lived thousands of years ago, but it is his book, so he can write it how he likes.
Anyway, all I lack on the one quilt is the applique in the center medallion. When it is finished, I think I will name the quilt Rebekah. Not because the book is so great, but because she was a great woman and the book made me think about her more and honor her more for the role she played in history. When I see the quilt, I think of the hours spent sewing it and listening to Mr. Card's story of Rebekah.
