About the Book

When Gus Compton dies, he leaves behind an unbreakable trust regarding the old Compton house, the surrounding land, and the beautiful lake. The Anna quilt has hung in the house for so many years that no one remembers Anna or when the quilt first arrived. Besides, it is old, poorly stitched, and really rather ugly. The death of Gus Compton and the reading of his unusual trust brings out assorted family members, both bad and good. And as Gus's good friend Reese Trainor said, "Gus probably laughed all the way through the Pearly Gates."

About the Author

Donna lives with her husband of forty-nine years in a small rural community in the Sierra Nevada Mountains north of Sacramento, California. She is retired from the telecommunications industry and is a great-grandmother. Retirement gave her the time to do two things she enjoys, writing and quilting. Donna is a charter member of the local quilt group, The Needle Nellies. Every year the members stitch a quilt, sell raffle tickets, host an excellent outdoor quilt show, and donate the proceeds to their volunteer fire department.
