Ruth Raber, an elderly Old Order Amish woman, has led a lonely life. She never married, never sang with a boy at one of her community’s gatherings, and ruined the only relationship she could’ve had.
And worst of all, she doesn’t understand why any of that happened.
Or does she?
Every year around Christmas, a series of memories haunt her, and this Christmas is no different.
When the nearby townspeople and the Amish and Mennonites in the area gather at Christmas Eve and invite Ruth, not only will she be challenged by her memories, she’ll be challenged by a lesson from her mother, now passed on, about the kindness in the quilts she makes.
Similar in theme to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, The Forgiveness Quilt will warm the heart while reminding us of the importance of kindness at Christmas–and for the entire year.
