Book Description, Modified from Back Cover:
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. 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.
Then her boyfriend returns to the area and wants to apologize for his harsh, parting words to her from years ago. When Taryn’s grandmother Jemma has a heart attack, Taryn is corralled into helping Grandma work on a final project—an Irish chain quilt that is a wedding present for a relative. With her old boyfriend's help, the pieces of the quilt come together and she starts to love him all over again. But past bad decisions may stand in the way as she doubts even God can forgive the lies she's told.
