Product Description

Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women's Army Corp after the end of World War II, to deliver a dying soldier's last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share. Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she's not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier's baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made.

Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child's name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie-and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt-years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.
