Wanda Brunstetter and her daughters Jean and Richelle bring
us a delightful Christmas story that spans three
generations. In LUELLA'S PROMISE, by Wanda Brunstetter,
Luella Ebersol takes a job caring for Dena Zook and her
young son Daryl. Luella cooks, cleans, watches Daryl and
does all the things that Dena can no longer do. Her days on
this Earth are limited. Before Dena passes, she gives Luella
a beloved Christmas quilt and asks her to promise to stay on
after she dies and take care of her husband Atlee and son
Daryl. Luella isn't sure Atlee will want that, but she makes
Dena the promise. The weeks are somewhat rocky as Luella
cares for Daryl and tries her best to help Atlee feel like
living again. A friendship blossoms between them, and people
begin to talk about their age difference. Atlee is sixteen
years her senior. Should Luella take another job elsewhere?
Or will this
friendship become something more?
In KAREN'S GIFT, by Jean Brunstetter, Karen Allgyer has
moved from the only home she\'s ever known to Lykens,
Pennsylvania with her husband. They are raising their three
young daughters, away from family and close friends. Her
husband Seth likes it here and is determined to stay, even
though he knows Karen is unhappy. With their marriage
already on the rocks and difficulties at work, they learn
that their baby is deaf. Seth begins to pull away even more.
Karen find comfort in the Christmas quilt her mother gave
her on her wedding day and the scripture inscribed on it.
Will their marriage last?
ROSEANNA'S GROOM, by Richelle Brunstetter, is the concluding
part of this generational saga. Roseanna is left at the
altar by her groom. He just simply runs out of the tent
during the service and leaves town a few days later. Can she
pick up the pieces of her life and move on?
THE BELOVED QUILT brings us stories of hope and assurance
that God is our rock and strength in times of trouble. We
don't always understand His plan, we just need to have faith
and trust He knows best. Our life doesn't always go like we
plan. The characters in each of these stories are strong and
endearing. The settings are in small Amish communities in
Pennsylvania, where the Amish and Englisch mesh their lives
seamlessly with each other. If you're looking for an
inspirational Christmas story this season, this is a great one!
