Elizabeth Yates is a favorite author and Patterns on the Wall does not disappoint. It is morally uplifting, has many examples of quality writing with literary devices, and is fully entertaining. I am so glad The Good and the Beautiful has chosen to republish this great work.
Things are not easy for Jared Austin, but with hard work and indomitable perseverance, he turns his life into something beautiful, just like the walls that he stencils. This historical fiction novel features fascinating character development, an engaging and unpredictable plot, and wonderful insights into life in New England during the early 1800s, including the “frozen year” of 1816. Elizabeth Yates has woven in moving messages of kindness, gratitude to God, faith, appreciation of nature, hard work, love of learning, self-improvement, optimism, humility, long-suffering, and patience.
