This is a sequel to Nancy Turner's These Is My Words. And it's a pretty good book, especially for a sequel. I reread These Is My Words last week too and enjoyed it again.
Sarah's Quilt is afflicted with the same problem that TIMW is- too many disasters. Turner manages to work Sarah through fire, drought, earthquake, and tornado, not to mention every conceivable human disaster possible too. It's too much in both books.
But both books are very well written and a pleasure to read. Recommended.
