Luella's promise / Wanda E. Brunstetter -- Karen's gift / Jean Brunstetter -- Roseanna's groom / Richelle Brunstetter.
"For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me". (Psalm 31:3) The scripture embroidered on the back of a beloved quilt brings hope to three generations of Pennsylvania Amish women at Christmastime.
Luella's promise: Luella Ebersol has been caregiver for a dying woman and her young son. When Dena Lapp gives Luella her favorite quilt, she makes Luella promise to pass it down to her daughter. But Luella isn't sure she will ever marry if she can't find someone with maturity and faith like Dena's husband Atlee Zook.
Karen's gift: Karen Allgyer and her husband moved to a slow-paced village to raise their children, but Karen longs for the closeness of family to help her through the challenges of managing three girls with one on the way. When life's pressures rise, will Karen cave to her fears?
Roseanna's groom: When the unexpected happens on the day of her wedding, Roseanna Allgyer can't help blaming herself, despite not understanding why. Then an old friend returns to town, and she battles feeling for him -- afraid of being hurt again.
Three generations of Pennsylvania Amish women are bound by an heirloom quilt embroidered with the scripture from Psalm 31:3.
