New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series | Quilted by Christmas
A grandmother’s last wish is to communicate God’s love through an Irish chain quilt.
Taryn McKenna believes she’s easy to forget. Abandoned by her parents
and left behind when her high school sweetheart joined the army, she
vows to never love again and throws herself into her love for the
outdoors and the pursuit of a college degree—something no one else in
her family has ever accomplished. Her goal, as a young teacher in the
hills of North Carolina, is to leave a legacy in the lives of the
middle‑schoolers she teaches.
When Taryn’s grandmother Jemma, the only other person who ever held
her close, has a heart attack that reveals a fatal medical condition,
Taryn is corralled into helping Grandma work on a final project—an Irish
chain quilt that tells the story of her history and the love Jemma
knows is out there for Taryn. As the pieces of the quilt come together,
Taryn begins to see her value. Can she learn to believe that God will
never leave her behind even though others have?
