What to expect

Sam Kinkade is finally feeling at home as a minister in rural Toms Brook, Virginia, content with his life and Shenandoah Valley congregation. But his plans to welcome the area’s growing Hispanic community are being met with resistance. Fortunately, when the church-run community center is threatened, a stranger named Elisa Martinez walks through his door and Sam realizes he has found a woman capable of building bridges. Elisa isn’t looking to make connections. She has come to Tom’s Brook to hide. But despite her fears of discovery, she is enchanted by the beautiful work of—and the friendship offered by—the women who invite her to join their quilting circle. And even though she fears the consequences for both of them, she finds herself powerfully drawn to Sam, and to the generations-old love story rooted in the town’s past. Will she and Sam repeat the past, or can they find the love and the freedom they seek at last?

Critics Review

  • Endless Chain is a novel with depth and style, as refreshing and sweet
    as Sam Kinkade’s idealism. And like Sam, Emilie Richards refuses to
    preach when a little inspiration will do just fine.”

  • “Heartfelt.

    Publishers Weekly
  • “Charming.”

    Library Journal
  • “Richards seamlessly joins contrasting and
    complementing elements—an intriguing political mystery, a
    long-forgotten local tragedy, and a contemporary love story—in an
    emotionally charged and transcendent tale of the ways love and faith can
    triumph in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds.”
