About the book:
A grandmother's last wish is to communicate God's love through an Irish chain quilt.
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?

This is the second book I've read in the QOL series(you can see my review of the other QOL book here).This is the first book I have read from Jodie Bailey. Quilted by Christmas was such an awesome read. I loved everything about this book...from the storyline to the characters. This book is such a sweet and heartwarming story of second chances that will tug at your heartstrings. There were several times during this book that I felt like I was actually a part of the story. It's a wonderful book to help kick off the holiday season!
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a great book to read.
