A Quilt Trail Novel

Available NOW!


A modern day Beauty and the Beast meet in their fifties when a disfigured carpenter becomes a guest at a bed and breakfast in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC.

Benjamin Pruitt plans to repair the town’s buildings before retiring to a solitary life. Sarah Campbell longs for freedom since her long task as caregiver has ended.

Can Benjamin and Sarah piece the tattered remnants of their lives into a beautiful design to warm their waning years?


My husband and I enjoy traveling the back roads where rural culture and history are preserved through a unique art form—Quilt Barn Squares.  We’ve recently explored rural roads searching for Gristmills. Phil developed a series of sermons which he’s turned into a book. 

Pictures of our travels are located in the Store. Quilt Barn Squares, rustic homes, farms, Gristmills, and pastoral scenes are a few of the subjects Phil captures along the road.  Make your selections from the Store. Put together a package you’ll want to share with friends.

To see upcoming book signings or speaking engagements, go to the Events page.

Fabric stores, businesses with a quilt square painting, Gristmill owners, and other proprietors help promote our books. Check out the Links page and give your support to people who are promoting rural American heritage.
