The frontier life isn’t easy—especially when you’re alone and with child. After the Klondike gold rush in 1897, Florence Harms and her young husband, Will, set about building a new life and a new home in the Northwest woods—even though the lingering effects of illness have left Florence weak and vulnerable. When a stranger comes knocking, Florence suddenly senses a restlessness in Will’s spirit that she has never seen before. Then he suddenly departs, leaving only a short note promising to return before their baby’s birth. As worry and doubt claw at Florence’s heart, she finds solace in a Tree of Life quilt. Will her labor of love—and faith in God—sustain her as she waits to see her beloved once again?
