Overview

After a tornado rips through her town, store owner Abigail comes across a piece of fabric from a wedding dress among the devastation. Abigail is moved to start collecting other swatches of fabric she finds – her neighbor’s kitchen curtains, a man’s necktie, a dog’s bed – which she stashes in shopping bags. As she pursues her seemingly absurd quest, horrible realities spark the question, “What kind of a God would allow such tragedy?” As she struggles to reconcile her right to happiness amidst the destruction, Abigail begins piecing together a patchwork quilt from the salvaged fabric in hopes it will bring some peace. But a new relationship with Justin, a contractor, may require too much of her fragile heart. Will her pain and questions of faith give way to the courage to love?

    Prom, Wedding, EF5 Tornado, Tuscaloosa, Joplin

    Many may wonder why this review seems very close to home. It is because an Ef5 tornado ripped through the very heart of my hometown of Joplin MO, on the 22 of May 2011. Yet everytging described in this fiction book reminds me of how everything was that night. A night of hard times ahead. Cell phones not even working well, to not finding loved ones. It may break someones heart, yet it tells the story of two towns that were hit in a way.
    Charaters are so rich and vibrant, from Elsa who was @ prom when it hit to the youth pastor who gave his life up. To a wedding that went on as planned.
    A great eye opener as to how many of us have felt.

    When the people of Rawston woke one morning, they did what they used to do every day. They had works to be done, things to be bought, places to go.... Until a storm came their way and changed their lives forever.




    This is an inspirational book and although not my usual reading, the plot seemed interesting. I wasn't disappointed. It was an original story, telling the lives of some people before, during and after the storm and is so brilliantly done that I could feel their fear and angst. The description of the storm is very well done and I could feel that I was there with them.
    I confess that I got a little teary in one part and a little angry myself with that outcome but one of the twists/morals of the book is to think about why certain things happen.
    God and religion were a permanent presence but not a forced one, these people had faith and had put their lives in the hands of the Lord and whatever the outcome, it would be accepted because it was what God wished for them.
    Abigal was the only non-believer, questioning things and even blaming God but, in the end, she understands that everything happens for a reason.




    I'm a non believer but I know that this story will stick with me for a while. It has a powerful message and a way to makes stop and think for a minute.

    I haven't cried this many times reading a book in years!

    Loved it! Well written and edited, this book is thought provoking with a sweet reminder about family, both the one we are born with and the one we choose to make ours.

    Easy, quick read.

    Cute story about life and love. Some points are a bit overly religious, but I guess that is the point. Easy to follow and it kept me engaged. Nice quick summer read.

    A good read, but the build up to the storm was a little slow. Great story of how tragedy can bring people together and the lessons that can be learned through it.

    A "Feel Good" book

    This book is for the person who likes a human interest theme. People are brought together during a tragic event with long lasting repercussions. I would read other books by this author. I appreciate books with out foul language!
