There are times when some things must be done by the pastor. Why? Because there is no one else to do them. Dr. Lawrence Hudson, an eager, young pastor, gladly bears this responsibility as he embarks on his first duties at the Church of the Redeemer in the small town of Roy, Tennessee. The year is 1947, and this is the first church appointment for this bright, dedicated man of God. With grand ambitions and a deep desire to please the Lord, Dr. Hudson is attentive to the needs of his parishioners, no matter the place or the hour, and seems to have sermons ready at the drop of a hat. He soon becomes famous for his front porch sermons and fireside sermons, which he gives to those who stop by his home for counsel and spiritual advice. Although he quickly proves himself to be wise beyond his years, Dr. Hudson still has many lessons to learn as he sets about tending his new flock. Perhaps even more difficult, he, like all humans, must face his own failures and mistakes. For he has a ghost in his past which is not easily forgotten-a lost love which he may never recover. Wrestling with his own heartache, loneliness, and regret, he focuses on the needs of others in order to fill the void in his own life. Only his closest friend and housekeeper, Mrs. Ward, knows of his inner struggle-one, it seems, only God can heal. My Patch of Heaven is a story of hope, faithfulness, and triumph as a pastor and his flock ever reach for that higher calling.

Sarah’s Garden Quite by accident, Sarah King has fallen in love. But this love is forbidden, and could cost her everything she holds dear. Tucked into the majesty of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains is a garden Sarah King has been nurturing for years. She never feels more alive than when she is alone with her thoughts and her Creator among the delicate rows of plants. But then duty calls her away from her beloved garden and into a world she knows little about. Grant Williams, a handsome young veterinarian, has left the city to open a rural practice among the Amish. Within minutes of meeting shy but feisty Sarah King, he is captivated by her. As their feelings grow for one another, Sarah insists they can never be together. Marrying Grant would mean being uprooted from her home, her family, and her community. Throughout the cold Pennsylvania winter, with her garden tucked away until spring, Sarah begins crafting a quilt that illustrates her pain. Can anything lasting blossom from a love that's forbidden? Lilly’s Wedding Quilt Handsome, headstrong Jacob offers Lilly his hand in marriage, but his heart belongs to someone else. While Lilly Lapp has loved Jacob for years, she wouldn't compete with Sarah King, the woman Jacob was determined to marry. But when Sarah marries another, Jacob spontaneously agrees to wed Lilly. Lilly divides her time between teaching the local Amish children and caring for her widowed mother who suffers from depression. Lilly's faith comforts her, but her heart still longs to be the sole object of Jacob's affection. As the days slip by, Lilly decides that hoping is too risky and vows to protect her heart. But God is subtly as work, and as winter turns to spring, their hearts awaken. The furthest thing from Lilly's mind is her Amish wedding quilt, a traditional gift for new brides. And the person she'd least suspect is the one making it. Like stray pieces of fabric quilted into a new design, Jacob and Lilly's marriage begins to bind them together in ways neither expected. Threads of Grace Grace’s beauty almost cost her everything. This new start is all she has left. When Grace Beiler was only a girl, she was married off to an older Amish man in order to save her family’s farm. Years later, she finds herself newly widowed and a mother to a young son. She has finally fled her sad past and plans to settle into a quiet life in Pennsylvania. As soon as she arrives, she captures the attention of Seth Wyse, the most eligible bachelor in Pine Creek. Seth is candid about his feelings for her, and for her son Abel, but Grace is determined to protect her heart. Her determination falters when her brother-in-law reveals the troubling contents of her late husband’s will. Seth offers Grace his hand in marriage, and thus a means of escape. But despite his having saved her from another loveless marriage, Grace is slow to trust her new husband. And as the months wear on, Seth wonders if he has made a mistake. But God is quietly at work in their hearts, and Seth and Grace soon discover that threads of grace bind them together in a tapestry rich in hope and love.

The Wolves of Trapper's Bluff is a story of desires, sacrifices, persistency and challenges intertwined within the disharmonized tonalities of life. Moments of desperation conflict with episodes of triumph. Heart-melting emotional outpours succumb under the cold steeliness of grief. Fear-the constant sojourner-permeates throughout and love as a sublime universal bond underpins all the hopes. A soul warming "aha" triumphs at the end-as a testimony to an unbridled courage in faith.

This volume brings back into print a remarkable record of black life in the 1920s, chronicled by Edward C.L. Adams, a white physician from the area around the Congaree River in central South Carolina. It reproduces Adams's major works, Congaree Sketches (1927) and Nigger to Nigger (1928), two collections of tales, poems, and dialogues from blacks who worked his land, presented in the black vernacular language. They are supplemented here by a play, Potee's Gal, and some brief sketches of poor whites. What sets Adams's tales apart from other such collections is the willingness of his black informants to share with him not only their stories of rabbits and "hants" but also their feelings on such taboo subjects as lynchings, Jim Crow courts, and chain gangs. Adams retells these tales as if the blacks in them were talking only among themselves. Whites do not appear in these works, except as rare background figures and topics of conversation by Tad, Scip, and other black storytellers. As Tad says, "We talkin' to we." That Adams was permitted to hear such tales at all is part of the mystery that Robert O'Meally explains in his introduction. The key to the mystery is Adams's ability -- in his life, as in his works -- to wear both black and white masks. He remained a well-placed member of white society at the same time that he was something of a maverick within it. His black informants therefore saw him not only as someone more likeable and trustworthy than most whites but also as someone who was in a position to help them in some way if he understood more about their lives. As a writer, O'Meally suggests, Adams was not simply an objective recorder of folklore. By donning a black mask, Adams was able to project attitudes and values that most whites of his place and time would have disavowed. As a result, his tales have a complexity and richness that make them an authentic witness to the black experience as well as a lasting contribution to American letters.
