Mornings On MainBook - 2018
Jillian James has never had a place she could call home. So when she lands in Lauralee, Texas--broke, friendless, alone--she's definitely not expecting to stay. Desperate to make some quick cash before she moves on again, she agrees to help an elderly woman close her beloved quilt shop. Michael Larady's mother has owned the shop all her life, but lately she has struggled with Alzheimer's. He faces the overwhelming task of closing her shop and cataloging her inventory--her life's work. When he meets Jillian, he seizes the opportunity for some help. As Jillian learns the stories behind each quilt, she grows close to Michael's mother, and a tender friendship between Jillian and Michael begins to blossom into something deeper. Michael's seventeen-year-old daughter has spent her whole life in Lauralee, Texas, and she feels restless. When Jillian moves to town, she represents travel, adventure, excitement. Is it possible to build a meaningful life in your hometown, or do you need to leave to find yourself?
