Welcome to my stop on the book tour for Tapestry by Beth Duke. Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invite!! Check out all the info and my book review, and let me know what you think.
Twenty-one-year-old Skye Willis lives in Eufaula, Alabama, a tourist mecca of stately homes and world-class bass fishing. Her childhood friends are either stuck at dead ends or have moved on to accomplish Big Things.
Skye’s grandmother, Verna, insists on being called “Sparrow” because she suspects her ancestors were Muscogee Creek. She dresses in faux deerskin and experiments with ancient Native American recipes, offering a myth or legend to anyone who will listen.
Skye has no idea what to do with her life. She’s smart as hell, but she has no faith or knowledge there’s something out there she was “born to do.” Nor does she know much of anything about her father, who died in Afghanistan when she was a toddler. He and his family are a mystery her mother won’t discuss.
But when Sparrow sets out to confirm her Creek ancestry through genetic testing, Skye joins in.
The results hit like a DNA bomb, launching them both on a path filled with surprises and life-changing events.
Skye learns a harder truth than she ever expected.
Alternating chapters between Skye’s Alabama life and an intertwining tale of greed, deceit, and control in Texas, this story offers proof that all life is a woven tapestry of past, present, and future.
I wanted to read Tapestry by Beth Duke because look at that stunning cover. I don’t always comment on the cover, but wow. And the good news is, the story inside was just as wonderful.
This was a beautiful and heartwarming story of family and love. I really enjoyed the theme of a weaving tapestry, and it was really compelling to read through.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this story. This author wrote them as if they were real people. Their backgrounds and flaws made them feel like people I know and I enjoyed reading about them. Loved this. I recommend giving it a read!
