Magnolia Grace never wanted to leave Georgia and move with her mama to the farm her daddy owned before he died. But now here she is, in a tiny Vermont town where everybody sings the praises of the father Maggie never knew.
Then Maggie meets the Parker family -- two moms, six kids, plus a pony named Sassy Pants. The Parkers are loud and wild, and they don't follow any of the rules Maggie grew up with in Georgia. They get to swim in the river and go on sleigh rides, and to them, no question is off-limits. Suddenly Maggie has questions, too -- questions about her father, and why Mama kept him away for so long.
In her search for answers, Maggie will learn that home is much more than where the heart is, and that families are like patchwork quilts, sewn together by love, and all the more beautiful for their different colors.
