(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.)—January 15, 2014— In the third book of Kathi Macias’s award-winning “Quilt” series, a young woman draws inspiration from Fanny Crosby. The Singing Quilt (978-1-59669-392-0, N144101, $14.99) is the final installment in the popular series from New Hope Publishers.
Once again, award-winning author Kathi Macias effectively brings history and present day together to tell a story of hope. In The Singing Quilt, Jolissa Montoya believes God is calling her to work with disadvantaged children in her inner-city neighborhood. But a speech impediment and her Spanish accent cause her to doubt God’s calling. How will the children ever understand her? In response to her doubt, a friend shares with Jolissa a quilt depicting the life of Fanny Crosby, a courageous woman who accomplished great things despite her own disability. Will Fanny’s life inspire Jolissa to try what she believes to be impossible and allow God to use her?
Compelling and realistic, The Singing Quilt and its young heroine will inspire readers not to let fear or a disability prevent them from answering what they think is God’s impossible call.
