Like a beautiful patchwork quilt, the three novellas in The Quilted Heart tell stories of lives stitched together with love and God’s unending grace. Once a week, Elsa Brantenberg hosts the Saint Charles Quilting Circle at her farmhouse on the outskirts of the riverside town of St. Charles, Missouri. The ladies who gather there have all experienced heartache related to the intense hardships of the Civil War, and together, they are facing their painful circumstances with friendship and prayer. Can the tattered pieces of their hearts be stitched together by God’s grace? Dandelions on the Wind When Maren Jensen took a job on Elsa Brantenberg’s St. Charles, Missouri farm, she never expected to call the place her home. As she grows to love Mrs. Brantenberg and her granddaughter, Gabi, Maren is transformed from a lonely mail-order bride-without-a-groom to a beloved member of the Brantenberg household. But when Gabi’s father, Rutherford “Wooly” Wainwright, returns to the farm unexpectedly, everything changes for Maren, and she feels compelled to find another job. Are her choices in obedience to God, or is she running from His plan? Bending Toward the Sun Dedicated to her education and to helping her father in his general store, Emilie Heinrich is convinced she doesn't have time for love. But when a childhood friend returns to St. Charles, Missouri, after serving in the Civil War, his smile and charm captures Emilie’s eye and her heart. Will she be forced to choose between honoring her father and a future with a husband and family of her own? Ripples Along the Shore Change is brewing in St. Charles. A group of brave souls are preparing to head west on the Boone's Lick Wagon Train, led by the mysterious and handsome Garrett Cowlishaw, who served as a Confederate soldier in the war that killed Caroline’s husband. Despite her dislike for him, Caroline is tempted to join the wagon train and start fresh somewhere new, but when Mr. Cowlishaw forbids her—a single woman—to travel with them, will one man’s prejudice destroy Caroline’s hope for a new future? Or will the ripples of God’s love bring the answer she needs?

She left, heavily weighted with secrets. But God reveals all things, in His timing. And He redeems them. Suzanne Zimmerman was only seventeen and pregnant when her shamed mother quietly sent her away from their Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. With her old home, family, and first love firmly behind her, Suzanne moved to Indiana, became a nurse, and raised a daughter, Alexa, on her own. Now, nearly twenty years later, an unexpected letter arrives from Kansas. Her brother asks her to bring her nursing abilities home and care for their ailing mother. His request requires that Suzanne face a family that may not have forgiven her and a strict faith community. It also means seeing Paul Aldrich, her first love. Paul, widowed with an eight-year-old son, is relieved to see Suzanne again, giving him the chance to beg her forgiveness for his past indiscretion. But when he meets Alexa, his guilt flickers in the glare of Suzanne’s prolonged secret—one that changes everything. Suzanne had let go of any expectation for forgiveness long ago. Does she dare hope in mercy–and how will her uncovered past affect the people she loves the most?

What is a writer if he is not the fiery voice of the people, who&transmutes in art all feeling, all thought, all experiences, thus becoming the seer of a new vision in any situation Mulk Raj Anand. The Mulk Raj Anand Omnibus is a tribute to one of the founding fathers of the Indian novel in English. Mulk Raj Anand (1905 2004) is best known for the fiery social critique contained in his writings. This special commemorative edition published on the eve of his hundredth birth anniversary brings together three of Anand s finest novels which capture the ambivalence of a nation caught between tradition and modernity: Untouchable (1935), Coolie (1936) and Private Life of an Indian Prince (1953). Untouchable remains a modern classic in its re-creation of one day in the life of Bakha, a sweeper boy. That he is an untouchable is portrayed as his fate ; there is no way out of his appalling existence as an outcast in the system. The vitality and richness of the narrative make this one of the great literary portraits of all time. Coolie recounts the adventures of Munoo, a young boy forced to leave his village to fend for himself and discover a world of his own. As his journey takes him far from home and to towns and cities, working as a servant, factory-worker and rickshaw driver, we see through the narrator s eyes many of the unspoken evils of the Raj exploitation, police brutality, caste strife, and communal riots. Private Life of an Indian Prince is the fascinating story of a prince who has inherited more of the vices than the virtues of his ancestors. Despite his many excesses, the maharajah retains our sympathies to the very end. Even his nymphomaniac mistress Ganga calls for our understanding. Anand s brilliant characterization makes this novel truly remarkable.
