Jodie Bailey in her new book, “Quilted By Christmas book coverQuilted By Christmas” Book Twenty-Two in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Taryn McKenna.

From the back cover:   Taryn is keeping a secret she never should have kept.

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?

Twelve years before Taryn and Justin had a great relationship but secrets broke them apart. Now Justin is back in town and Jemma, Taryn’s grandmother, knows exactly what to do to get them back together again. “Quilted By Christmas” is all about what happens when we are not open and honest with one another. They cause a great deal of pain and misunderstanding which, of course, gets in the way of the relationship. Ms. Bailey has given us a great deal of story that all works itself out over the creation of the Irish chain quilt. There are moments of great fun and moments of high emotion but through it all there is lots of love. This book will keep you thinking.
