Why not send two books?

A novel about finding your place…

Birds in the Air

Send a Friend Birds in the Air, a novel about the abiding friendships that bind together a community of women who share a passion for making quilts.

Every order ships with gift sheet announcing your name.

When Emma Byrd moves into the house of her dreams in the small mountain community of Sweet Anne's Gap, she knows that making friends may prove to be her biggest challenge. Her husband loves his new job and her kids are finding their way at school. But Emma -- no natural when it comes to talking to strangers -- will have to try a little harder, especially after the sweet, white-haired neighbor she first visits slams the door in her face.

Luckily, a few of the quilters of Sweet Anne's Gap adopt Emma and she soon finds herself organizing the quilt show for the town's centennial celebration. But not everyone is happy to see the job go to an outsider, especially one who has befriended an outcast pursuing her own last best chance at redemption.

With Birds in the Air, Frances O'Roark Dowell (winner of the Edgar Award, the William Allen White Award and the Christopher Medal) has created a warm, funny novel about fitting in, falling out and mending frayed relationships one stitch at a time.

"An uplifting story of a woman finding her way in a small town, this will delight experienced quilters and novice crafters alike. Dowell is best known for her YA fiction, and her experience crafting narratives around the power of female friendships transfers easily to more mature subject matter. With buoyant prose and an uplifting message, this will appeal to fans of Mary Simses and Erin McGraw." --Booklist

"A truly enjoyable read! Quilters will relive their own first patchwork steps along with Emma as she searches for her place in a new community. Non-quilters will experience vicariously Emma's discovery of the power of quilts to connect, heal, and restore the soul." --Marianne Fons
 "What a delightful book! ... As I read, I was transported out of my chair and into the town of Sweet Anne's Gap and the lives of the quilters that I can understand so well."  --Annie Smith 

"Birds in the Air is a great book and quilt block -- it's as unusual as liking the book and the movie! It was such a pleasurable read. I cared about the characters and what happened to them. I enjoyed revisiting what it is like to be a brand new quilter." --Kathy Mathews, ChicagoNow
