Tapestries is a true-life story about real people who actually lived in the time frame of the great depression until the 21st century. It is chock full of love and hatred, faith and fearfulness. Historical events and poetical truths are locked in and here you will recall new facts long forgotten from your history books. The author's colorful Christian experience as a little child may make you laugh and rejoice with her. But the dark horrendous days of everyday living, raising a family and facing her own waterloo of life threatening illness served to strengthen her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The eventful writing of this story began in 1993. Many times it was placed away and forgotten about. But after each triumphant circumstance in her life, the author realized that something new and important had to be added to the story. Thus the Compendium was added on after the last chapter. This book is a true love story of one who depicts the life she lived and is living honestly and candidly in Tapestries.
