    Hated this book to end, wanted to stay with these friends forever!This is the third book in this series, and you do not have to have read the previous ones to know what is going on, enough is explained! We start our visit back with Jasmine and Nolan Houston, and their great family. Alice Ann has survived Scarlet Fever, and life is good. When Jasmine's Father's Lawyer pays her and her brother McKinley a visit, they find out the the rest of their family have all passed in a Yellow Fever epidemic.It is decided that Jasmine, Nolan and family will travel to Louisiana to settle the estate. Both Jasmine and her brother abhor slavery and have every intention of freeing all of the slaves her family had held at the Willows. You will not, well maybe, believe all that is about to happen, you won't be able to put this book down.There are so many twists and turns in this book, and great adventure. You will also spend time with Paddy, Margaret, Reverend Chamberlain, Reggie, Mrs Brighton, among others. You will love all the stories that are presented.A really great read!

    It was a pretty good book, slow at times, but still good. I like how the authors concluded the stories of the characters....at least for all but 3 people that is. I am saddened that Moses didn't get his parents back! I know he has Simon and Maisie, but I waited the whole book to see Moses be reunited with Obadiah & Naomi, or at least to find out what happened to them, and was really disappointed at the end.

    The book was very good, but disappointed that Jasmine and Nolan did not even try to look for Moses's parents or even run across them. I thought for sure they were going to come back in the third book.

    i'm amazed that each book in this series gets better and better as the story unfolds. Jasmine gets an unexpected visit from her father's attorney. His news of her father and brothers deaths due to a epidemic sends her into a depressed state, but the news that her and mckinley are the heirs of their father's plantation are somewhat concerning. Her father's last wish was for them to return to the plantation and bring in the last crop. Nolan, Jasmine and their 3 children return without Mckinley who refuses to leave his business or his pregnant wife. Paddy is left in charge of the horse business which is a great feet for an Irish boy. He doesn't let them down. Jasmine and Nolan set the her father's slaves free and allow them to choose to help with the crops for a wage. This new treatment of the freed slaves causes a stir with the other plantation owners. Upon the spreading of this news, the Willows is burned and the slaves taken away, leaving the Houston family destitute and running of the threat to their lives. They feel the real threat as the escape under the cover of darkness as so many slaves had. One of her remaining cousins, Rupert is behind these hanus acts and tries to steal the Willows too. After return to the North, Mckinley doesn't believe in Jasmine's tale, but believes Rupert had been misunderstood. Mckinley later finds this to be false when Rupert sets a plan in place to go back on another arrangement of the return of the freed slaves. Meanwhile, the cotton mills are in dire straights with layoffs and the closure of boarding houses. Elinor finds a connection to Reggie the new preachers daughter and through their friendship she finds the barricade around her heart to break and acknowledges her love for both Reggie and her father. They are married along with one of her boarders, Mary Margarite to Paddy. Trust that was put in the Lord to answer prayer was well founded even when faith was lacking. Family importance was centered on as the Wainwright family was almost all lost to tragedy except for Jasmine and Mckinley and a few cousins and a distant uncle Levi who aided in the escape and return of the willows to jasmine.

    Sue, North River patron, June 2016, 5 stars:Third in a series, Book #1 A Tapestry of Hope, #2 A Love Woven True, #3 The Pattern of Her Heart. Started in the 1800 with the slaves picking cotton in the South, daughter of plantation owner moving north and not approving of slavery, father died, left all to daughter and son. They tried to free the slaves, the plantation was burned and people killed. Ended with daughter able to bring some slaves North and free them, find them homes. Trusted in God to help her through all her adventures and trials. Hard to read about all the suffering. Love Peterson's books.

    Sad to reach the endThis was a wonderful series! I so wish it was longer. The story of what the Houston's experience d in Mississippi was so scary! However, I'm glad there was a happy ending!

    I had read this book before. The Plantations owner did so many illegal things in order to be in power.

    Seeing that Jasmines life was getting better, yet not without challenges, at least she was able to go on and have happiness...again, I couldn't put the book down!

    I liked that all the ends were tied up, but then I wished more time could have been spent on some of the stories. I would have liked to have read more about Elinor and Mary Margaret.
