The Memory Quilt: A Christmas Story for Our Times by T. D. Jakes


The Memory Quilt

Bishop Jakes weaves inspirational life lessons into this tender and touching tale, a thoughtful reflection on our actions throughout the giving season and all year-round.

Is there room in your heart?

Lela Edwards wants nothing more than to spend the holidays with her family. But her husband of fifty years passed away recently, her daughters live far from their old Chicago neighborhood, and her granddaughter, Darcie, is avoiding her grandmother for fear Lela will judge her decision to get a divorce. Irritated and lonely, Lela concentrates on the lessons of the Virgin Mary with her Bible study group and begins to piece together an unfinished quilt she set aside long ago.

The cold winter brings some unexpected rough patches for Lela and her loved ones. The closer she examines the Scriptures, the more she realizes how quick she is to find fault with the people around her. Lela soon discovers she has woven the Virgin Mary’s lessons into the handiwork of the quilt, a reminder that by following the guidance of the cherished story we revisit every December to celebrate the meaning of Christ, she can learn from her mistakes and find favor with God.

Readers everywhere will find an uplifting message of hope in this heart-warming story.

The author of this book paints a vivid picture of an elderly woman and without de-humanizing her, allows you to go through her trials as if they were your own. He also does a great job of reviewing the birth of Christ through the eyes and thoughts of Mary and comparing her story to that of the main character. This book had an awesome plot, animated characters, dramatic foreshadowing, and a surprise ending. I highly reccomend this book to anyone.

The story was believable. The Characters could have been real people that you know. The family life was typical of what most people experience. Had a religious theme but was not something that made you feel religion was being pushed on the reader.

Would also prefer a page count as last holiday "book" was 13 pages and saves clogging up space with samples . However publishers reviews covered most of it. Home alone again for the 25 as all very busy busy and roads bad which is the excuse i usually give to any inquires
