Synopsis

A Secret Past, A Heartwarming Journey of Discovery — Recorded in a “Charm String” of Antique Buttons.

Nebraska during the pioneer days was no place for a girl on her own. Yet Nora O’Dell was only fifteen years old when she ran away from her father’s farm and headed north to the city of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Strong-minded and willing to work hard, Nora’s talent with a needle and thread opened unexpected doors of opportunity — and led her to success in business.

But Nora’s heart was hungry for more than money: she wanted a love that would banish loneliness. Nora memorialized her quest by sewing significant buttons on a keepsake ribbon — each one a precious reminder of a lesson learned on the way to her heart’s desire.

In the spirit of "Sarah’s Patchwork" and "Karyn’s Memory Box," "Nora’s Ribbon of Memories" continues the Keepsake Legacies Series with a heartwarming story of a young woman seeking lasting happiness nearly a century and a half ago.
