This is the only book I read in November but at least it was better than the last one. This one had a lot more thought out detail so it was more interesting.
Annie always admired this little tapestry on the wall of her grandmother's house. Even after she moved in she never moved it. She always wondered about the strange signature with Roman numerals surrounded by the same initials.
One day at the Stitch In Time's needlework group meeting Stella had a huge announcement to make. She said a professor was coming to Stony Point to put on a play involving local students and members of the community. She encouraged everyone to get involved and use their special talents to help in some way. This play was about the virtuous wife portrayed in Proverbs 31 in the Bible and was written by a man who grew up in Stony Point. He had recently lost his wife and wrote the play to honor her. Annie and her friends went to look around in her attic to see what they could find anything that might fit with the time period. They pulled out a couple rugs to see if they could be used and found a large tapestry rolled up with one of the rugs. She knew when she saw the initials that it was by the same artist who created the small one on the wall in the living room. It seemed to fit with the verse so she thought it might work well for the play but she was curious why something so beautiful was kept hidden in the attic like that. She thought maybe her grandmother hid it for a reason and that she should just take care of it and not let it be damaged by using it in the play. When the others saw it they all pressured her to use it for the play so Annie decided she would but she got some friends to help her design a special frame to display it and she learned how to protect it from dust and light. One day when she went in to show it to some friends she was shocked to find it was gone and only the frame was left. She was baffled how anyone could have taken it from the locked room at the theater. When she said she was planning to go to the university to learn more about the artist she ended up getting hurt when something fell on her head. It wasn't an accident and the police were worried that the two incidents were related. They warned Annie to be careful but she wouldn't stop trying to learn about the artist and who would have stolen the canvas and why.
