2nd in the Quilts of Love series

When Quakers Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan embark on the Underground Railroad, they agree to put their differences aside to save the lives of a pregnant slave couple. With only her mother’s quilt as a secret guide, the foursome follows the stitches through unknown treachery.

As they embark on their perilous journey, they hope and pray that their path is one of promise where love sustains them, courage builds faith, and forgiveness leads to freedom.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Path of Freedom, go HERE.

My Review:
Loved this story. I love reading about the Quakers and there way of life. Love this book and how it deals with the underground railway and saying a couple of slaves. Flora and Bruce along with Flora's sister embark on a journey to help this couple. The issue is Flora cant forgive Bruce for the teasing he did when she was younger and doesn't know if she can trust him.  This book shows how bullying can be perceived long after the event and how it affects relationships. It also shows how two people can see the same incident totally differently. I actually love how we see how dangerous this journey to save a couple can be and the different  views of different people to the issue. I have read a couple of these books now and while different stories I love the quilt theme and how a quilt can be such a valuable treasure. Great read.
