Descrizione

The old Taite Plantation was built up-bank from the Ogeechee River, about twenty-five miles outside of Savannah, Georgia. By the end of the Civil War, the grand old place was just a skeleton of what it once had been. The fields were dry and empty, slave shacks were deserted, and old Taite had died just as his crops had. All that remained of the grand old place was the Negro cemetery and fifty or so old two-room shacks that held the haunting story of those who'd lived and died within their walls.
Libby Pace was brought as a small child to one of those old slave shacks and her daddy, just as others before him, built his own home on former slave land. The new land owners, just poor and dirt poor whites, named their community the Patch.
Libby tells the story of her life and those around her; such as the old Biddie sisters, the Pritchet's,the Justice's and Tater Johnson- a Negro peddler who came into her life and changed it forever as the daily lives of those who live within the Patch, become woven together and form a family cummnunity of neighbor helping neighbor.
Libby, always the teacher in life, finds through Tater Johnson, as she teaches him to read and write, he has far more to teach her of love and friendship not found in her books.
Woven Patches, the first book in a series, details hardships and stories of a community who cling to the Old South as the new one emerges. Laughter and tears blend in the reading of Woven Patches as Libby recalls a most "amazin' and full" life.
