The key to a successful horse farm is the trainer. At Bridgeton Pass, J. P. Ryan is that key. William Becker is determined to protect his farm and keep Ryan on the job.
That goal is threatened by two things – a sinister act by another employee and the fact that his only daughter has fallen head-over-heels in love with J. P.
Becker can’t allow either of those things to threaten his legacy.
Audra grew up around the handsome trainer and fell in love with him at a distance, enchanted by his kindness and honesty. When they began stealing private but innocent moments, she found that she didn’t want to live without him. Audra is heartbroken when she has to choose between honoring her father and pursuing love.
J.P. wants Audra by his side, but he finds himself with a hard decision.
He is forced to choose between his career and the love of his life. Between the problem caused by the troublemaking barn hand and the frustration caused by his desire for Audra, J.P.’s job has become a ‘crewel’ work.
The story of the Becker family is woven as an intricate Tapestry. It is beautiful as a whole, but like any tapestry, you have to turn it over and look at the back side to see how the threads of love and family relationships are woven together into one intricate whole.
Welcome to the Tapestry series.

They are characters that I would like and would be friends with if they were real. Except for the villainous types, of course.
“Toaster’s waiting for an apology,” Tanner joked. He knew his cousin to be an easy-going guy and that it took a lot to get J.P. to the point of such upset. Tanner leaned against a fence post.
“Sorry about that.”
“I kissed her.” J.P. was staring at the ground.
“Okay,” Tanner said cautiously.
“I can’t do this!” J.P. kicked the fence post Tanner was leaning on.
“No, you can’t do this to yourself.”
“I need this job. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am. I live here!” J.P. was swinging his arms around wildly in emphasis. He looked at Tanner, his eyes were desperate. “Tanner, she’s only seventeen.” J.P. let out a long sigh.
“Talk to her dad. Talk to Becker.”
“And say what, Tanner? ‘May I have your permission to have my way with your teenage daughter’?”
Tanner couldn’t help a half smile. “J.P…” he started, but J.P. walked away. “J.P.!” Tanner commanded. J.P. stopped and turned back to face Tanner.
“Becker told me I’m back on the road right after Christmas.” He paused for a minute. “I gotta go,” J.P. said over his shoulder as he walked away.
