Forlagets beskrivelse
Ludelphia Bennett may be blind in one eye, but that doesn't mean she can't put in a good stitch. In fact, Ludelphia sews all the time, especially when things are going wrong. Sewing calms her nerves, and her quilts tell her story.

But when Mama gets deathly ill, it doesn't seem like even quilting will help. Mama needs medicine badly ? medicine that can only be found in Camden, over forty miles away. That's when Ludelphia decides to so something drastic -- leave Gee's Bend.

Beyond the log cabins, orange dirt, and cotton fields of her small sharecropping community, Ludelphia discovers a world she could never have imagined. Fancy houses, cars, and even soda pop! But there's also danger lurking for a young girl on her own, and Ludelphia begins to wonder if she'll ever see Gee's Bend or her mama again. Despite the twists and turns, Ludelphia weathers each challenge in a way that would maker her mama proud, and she may even save the day for not just Mama, but her entire town.

Set in 1932 and inspired by the rich quilting traditions of Gee's Bend, Alabama, Leaving Gee's Bend is a delightful story of a young girl facing a brave new world. The book was 2011 Alabama Library Association Book of the Year and a SIBA Book Award finalist. Book Page calls it "captivating, a tale that will stay with the reader forever."
