The most important parts of the Christmas season are not the presents or the tree, baking or decorations. It's the people-family and friends-who enrich our lives and make the holidays so special. Christmas Quilt is actually a collection of people who will make you laugh and cry, remember and wish, and like good friends, you'll want to visit them every year. You'll meet Billy and Mrs. Clayborne, who have holiday ghosts to deal with; Megan and her siblings, orphaned just before the holiday. There's the children of the coal mining village of Snow and a group of lumberjacks, all of whom learn to believe in magic. Read one mother's need for holiday tradition, letters from friends full of holiday cheer, verses and rhymes about luminaries and Christmas Eve traditions. And meet all the people touched by The Christmas Quilt, made with love for a daughter's holiday wedding, as it appears at Christmas time throughout the century.
About the Author
Barb comes from a family with three sisters and a brother, which made the Christmas holidays fun because there were a lot of presents under the tree! For the first seventeen years of her life, her dad was in the Air Force and that meant moving every few years, but regardless of whether they lived in South Carolina, Florida or Texas; Japan or Kwajalein, their Christmas traditions arrived right along with the Mayflower Moving Van. Christmas was Life Saver(r) story books, hanging stockings on a pretend fireplace, dressing alike in outfits Mom had made us for midnight church service on Christmas Eve, even peeking under Mom's bed because that's where she always hid the Christmas presents. Barb likes to think she has preserved the best of the holiday traditions because now Christmas means having her family close at hand - Dave, her husband of thirty-seven years; her son, Tom and his delightful wife Stephanie; and her daughter, Cassie, who married John, a wonderful son-in-law, just this past May on Mother's Day.
