Sarah Agnes Prine…….the subject of this sampler and the American West trilogy by Nancy Turner. The first book in the series was “These Is My Words,” followed by “Sarah’s Quilt” and then “The Star Garden.” I started dreaming about a design for the books, never thinking in a million years that there would actually BE one. I contacted Nancy who lived in Tucson, and we met at the annual Festival of Books here at the University of Arizona. We formed a friendship and a mutual respect for one another’s work. “These Is My Words” is a loving creation based on the spirit of the book and my design imagination.
