Stitching a Life in Persimmon Hollow

  • By Gerri Bauer

In At Home in Persimmon Hollow, readers' hearts were captured by Agnes Foster as she built a new life for herself in a very special frontier town amid the Florida wilderness--and found love along the way. Now, in the second novel of the Persimmon Hollow Legacy series, we meet starry-eyed seamstress Josefa Gomez.

Living with her aunt and uncle, the housekeeper and caretaker at Agnes and Seth's Taylor Grove compound, Josefa longs for the glamorous life of a fashion designer far beyond her small town. But her dreams of designing exquisite gowns for rich women in Paris and New York alarm her Tia Lupita, who fears that Josefa's ambitions are unrealistic for a girl of her station. In late 19th century America, a Mexican woman's best prospect may well be a suitable marriage and a position in the household of a kind employer. When Lupita announces a plan for Josefa to move away from Persimmon Hollow to live with distant relatives in Texas and prepare for an arranged marriage, the headstrong beauty knows she has to make an audacious choice.

Will Josefa follow her dreams of glamor or submit to her aunt's plans for stability and security? Can she find a way to use her gifts in a truly productive way? And when a choice arises between two suitors, will she choose a rich man who could give her all the outward trappings she desires, or a quiet carpenter who has fewer material goods--but a bigger heart?
