ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I have always loved to write. I have stories that I wrote when I was in first grade. I used to sit at my grandmother’s yellow electric typewriter for hours, banging out my own little stories. When I was eleven, she bought me a typewriter of my own (It was 1984, okay?) and I would write and write on it. I wrote stories out by hand, and they ran to hundreds of pages. I got my first computer when I was eighteen, and the first thing I did was write a story on it. I wrote for school. I wrote for fun. I wrote for my friends. I’d get them on the phone and make up stories for them. (I earned the nickname “Dreamweaver” for that one. Nobody calls me that anymore, but it still stands as the coolest nickname I ever had.)
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of Quilted by Christmas, go
Sometimes after deep heartache, you feel the tears dry and you think maybe I have moved on. Just to find out that years later there is so much emotion, hurt, and pure love that you still hold on to, for that individual. Time doesn't heal all wounds, it just puts a band aid on the situation. Taryn soon realizes this after her first love returns to their town after an extended stay abroad after serving in the Army. But soon her past and her reality will face each other when Justin returns to help his father.
Taryn has survived all these years without Justin holding on to a secret that only Jemma--her grandmother knows. Taryn has been so busy taking care of her grandmother expecting it not to go badly but at last fate has reared its ugly head and Jemma's illness has taken a turn for the worse. Jemma has made a request that Taryn may have to see through on her own. So now not only is Taryn faced with the reality of her first love's return, but also the secret that once again will have to come to the surface, but her grandmother's health also weighs in the balance of it all. Taryn will have to rely on God for such an endeavor as this, will she trust Him enough to carry the weight of the load?
