Publisher's Description

After her Aunt Teza’s test results turn out to be inconclusive, Dot Cooper resolves to raise money for a new mammogram machine, through the creation and auction of a magnificent, king-sized quilt to be sewn by the women of Jefferson City.

Dot’s efforts quickly draw the support of disparate members of the community, including newcomer Beth Donnelly, married to a local pastor; Elaine Giovanni, the stylish wife of a local surgeon; and an ailing Aunt Teza. But as the four different generations work the squares of the quilt, they are also confronted with ragged pieces of their own lives.

Though the women could not be more different on the surface, they hold in common quiet suffering triggered by painful circumstances: the death of children, the abandonment of husbands, the loneliness of depression. Yet their struggles will bring them closer together than they ever could have anticipated, and their lives will be dramatically changed, as together they experience the curative powers of The Healing Quilt.

    Lauraine Snelling has woven together an unlikely group of people to show how God can make a worthy community project a healing experience for themselves as well. I especially enjoyed Kit's relationship with her Aunt, the farm, and sewing--all dear to me on a personal level. I did have to adjust to Lauraine out of the Dakotah and Red River mode, some of my all time favorites.

    This book was wonderfully written. It is easy to follow and the author did a great job intertwining the tapestry of the women's lives that are mentioned. It hits home as any of the characters could be any of us. Great read!

    Excellent book. I could not put it down. I would like to see a sequel to this book. There are characters who I would love to know how their lives have turned out. Lauraine is a brave woman to write this book. I can not image what she has been through. Bless her.

    This is a wonderful book. I stayed up and read by the kitchen light during the night. There are characters that each of us can identify with or know of others that have endured similiar circumstances. A wonderful read that I have highly recommended to all.
