Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Sofia Parker's love of art has always been a driving force in her life. How appropriate it is when she discovers that the eighth block of the priceless heirloom quilt she inherited from her grandmother leads her back to nineteenth century England and Beatrice Kimble, one of the first female art appraisers in history. Beatrice, on a special assignment from London's National Gallery, is on her way to evaluate the collection of Lord Blackwell in the Yorkshire moors. But highwaymen try to cut the journey short when they attack the carriage carrying Beatrice and her colleague. How does Beatrice fit into my family's history? Sofia wonders. And how did she escape the bandits seeking to stop her before she could negotiate the purchase of a treasure from the reclusive lord of Blackwell Castle? But Sofia's search for answers of old must take a backseat to a present day mystery. A wealthy widow, Catherine Stanley, has generously donated a jewelry collection for an auction in support of a local hospital and Sofia is catering the affair. But the impenetrable estate is first hit by a New England blizzard and then by thieves who make away with the cache of diamonds, rubies and pearls. Will Sofia and her friends be able to solve this baffling case while still working to unravel the latest secret of the quilt?
