In this latest Quilts of Love story, Hudson Taylor writes a good book about the Underground Railroad and the dangers the participants faced. She interjects humorous scenes into an otherwise serious script. The main characters are likable but do not come to life, and the Quaker language can be distracting. There are great Christian lessons interspersed in the story.

Flora Saferight still carries the hurt of childhood teasing by Bruce Millikan. As adults, they are asked by their pastor to help a couple on the Underground Railroad. Both are hesitant about the mission, but decide it is God’s will. As Flora tries to rebuild trust in Bruce, he realizes his mistakes from childhood. Can they put their differences aside to deliver the couple to freedom and find love in the process? (ABINGDON, Jan., 240 pp., $12.99)
