Quilted by Christmas
About the book (from jodiebailey.com):
Taryn McKenna believes she’s easy to forget. After being abandoned by her parents and left behind when her high school sweetheart joined the Army, she vowed to never love again and threw herself into her love for the outdoors, and the pursuit of a college degree – something no one else in her family had ever accomplished.
Her goal, as a young teacher in the foothills of North Carolina, is to leave a legacy in the lives of the middle schoolers she teaches.
But when her grandmother Jemma, the only other person who ever held Taryn close, has a heart attack that reveals a fatal medical condition, she corrals her outdoor-loving granddaughter into sitting down with her to work on a final project together, an Irish chain quilt that tells the story of her history and the love Jemma knows is out there for Taryn if she can only find value in herself and believe that though others have left her behind, God never will.
This is a beautiful story about love and second chances. It was interesting to watch Taryn fall back in love with her high school sweetheart, back in love with her savior and deepen an already strong love with the grandmother who raised her. It’s a great reminder that it’s never too late to learn to trust.
