Crazy Quilt – A patchwork of Yesteryear
by Lynn Coffey
The sixth book in the Backroads series by Lynn Coffey, Crazy Quilt is a patchwork of new and exciting offerings about the people and places dotting Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
Crazy Quilt documents the history of two early log cabins and two post-Civil War churches as well as a plantation home dating back to the late 1700s.  It is filled with modern-day people preserving the old Appalachian customs, keeping them alive for the next generation.  An interview with an active centenarian as well as six unpublished “slice of life” vignettes by Lynn, complete the new book that is sure to please readers familiar with her writing.
