Heirloom Secrets Series (Book 1)

Harper Dupree has pinned all her hopes on a future in fashion design, but when it comes crashing down, she returns home to Alabama, and to Millie, the woman who first taught her how to sew. As Harper rethinks her own future, long-hidden secrets about Millie’s past are brought to light. In 1946, Millie Middleton boarded a train and left Charleston. She never expected to meet a charming train jumper who changed her life forever. Now, together, Harper and Millie return to Charleston to find the man who may hold the answers they seek. It’s not until all appears lost that they see ways to mend what frayed between the seams.


Customer Reviews

“Clark makes a moving debut . . . . While faith elements are subtle, Millie often turns to God for fortitude when facing the difficult circumstances of her past and the obstacles to finally getting her dreams off the ground. Those who enjoy inspirational time-slip stories will want to check this out.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Clark opens her new Heirloom Secrets series against the backdrop of discrimination against interracial families and follows a family history anchored to an embroidered satchel and its contents. Alternating between 1946 and the present . . . . this tale traces the consequences of personal decisions through the textile arts, with Millie standing as a bridge between the two eras.”
