But earlier than she will really enjoyment of her current happiness, she should face the sorrow hidden in her previous — her personal position within the tragic circumstances that left her estranged from her sister, Claudia, till it was too late to make amends. Vowing to not repeat the error along with her new daughter-in-law, Amy, who opposed Sylvia’s marriage to her father, Andrew, Sylvia should persuade Amy that household is extra treasured than pleasure. As Sylvia takes up a quilt for the season, begun and deserted over six years, she remembers the New 12 months’s Eve festivities of her youth at Elm Creek Manor as a member of the Bergstrom household. She titles the quilt “New 12 months’s Reflections,” after her perception that year-end reflections precede resolutions. The quilt blocks she chooses commemorate the knowledge that nobody can ever be really alone if she retains the reminiscence of these she liked and people who liked her alive in her coronary heart.
The New 12 months’s Quilt is a novel to take pleasure in in the present day and to treasure anew every vacation season.
