Margaret: Christmas Quilt Brides Book 8

by Joi Copeland


Staying in Silver Springs, Colorado, just may take more courage than she has within her.

Christmas time in Silver Springs, Colorado, has always been Margaret Harden’s favorite season. Miracles abound at Christmas, and who’s to say it isn’t her turn to experience one? And a miracle it would certainly be!

As the owner of Quaint Quilts, Margaret has almost everything she’s ever wanted. Except the love of a good man. She’s only let one man have claim to her heart, but he’s completely blind when it comes to love. Margaret doesn’t know if she can handle the pain of watching him court yet another woman. When her world turns upside down, she faces a dilemma: stay in Silver Springs and risk her heart or start over in another town, away from the man she loves?

As the pastor of the church, Sullivan Jones can’t help but think he needs someone by his side to help him. Mamas in the church constantly parade their daughters in front of him, yet none capture his attention. On top of his loneliness, he is still working through his issues with his parents and older brother. Sully’s suddenly faced with his own dilemma, and he isn’t sure it’s worth the risk.

Reunite with the Harden Clan in this small-town mountain romance set in the late 1800s.

They Settled in Sitka

Finding a Person, Finding a Place

My Mama's Mama Book 4


With a frozen tundra in the north, rainforest in the southeast, barren volcanic islands in the southwest, and lakes and streams in the interior, it is a land that draws those with a pioneer spirit. A land that welcomes both scoundrels and saints. Alaska—the Last Frontier.

Sitka, Alaska, USA—previously, New Archangel, Russian America—to the Tlingits, Shee. Sitka’s relationship with its various peoples and cultures is multi-faceted, emotional, and almost mystical. Who are the people who settled the wooded mountains and pristine shorelines of Sitka?

• Agrefena clings to her ten-thousand-year-old Tlingit heritage and fights against the segregation of Sitka
when she enters adulthood in the 1920s.

• Ade Bunderson travels the Midwest and South with his father until fear and courage propel him to Alaska.

• Stormy Durand runs from everything he lost in WWI and finds solace in Alaska’s wilderness.

• Father Alexi flees the Russian Revolution with his family and attempts to cross the waters to Alaska.

• Ollyanna Oskolkoff journeys from the Kenai Peninsula to Sitka to rescue her sister.

Each one’s life connects with Miss Ruth and finds through her love for this land the comfort and guidance they need while settling in Sitka.

They’ve come home!
