it was amazing

I think this was a very good subplot of the main plot which was the feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys. The subplot of this story is like a fairy tale. Rosanna likes a boy by the name of Johnse Hatfield and the family does not let Ro go meet her supposed boyfriend. Then all of the sudden, Ro ran away with Johnse and when she decided to come back, she was pregnant. Her parents would not let her in the house or even close to the field. Then her daughter Elizabeth, died of measles, a type of disease, but her dad felt so bad for her that he went ahead and let her stay in the house. The quilt came in place when Ro was making it and she had everyone’s name in her family on it and then if they died it would move towards the middle of the quilt. To know more about this great novel you should read it.
