Thankfully, she has powerful allies: Pastor Glenn, New Life Christian School where her daughters Mary and Sarah attend, and the inner circle at Arbor Drive Fellowship. They all reinforce her careful nurturance of her children.

If only her husband, Rick, understood that. He’s exasperated about the money Ruth keeps spending for the church and school. Doesn’t he see that these are their best defenses in shielding their children from the dangers of the world?

But the forces that threaten Ruth’s faith, her family–her very life–are not the ones she expects. Ruth doesn’t realize that her heartfelt desire to obey God is mingled with dangerous currents of OCD–Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Her own strategies for protecting her family may be the very thing that tears them apart.

The Sewing Circle

Edna Tidewell is a Titus woman. Following the Biblical injunction to mentor younger women in Christ, this pastor’s wife sets aside each Tuesday afternoon for the young women of Hickory Corners, Ohio. During “Tea with Mrs. T,” the ladies do personal sewing or hold a quilting bee while Mrs. Tidewell reads aloud from the Scriptures. Discussion, tea, and sweet conversation round out each afternoon. These special get-togethers could have far-reaching effects on four young ladies. When Elsa’s plans and dreams are overturned like Tumbling Blocks, can Mrs. T help her battle an enemy with kindness – and perhaps recognize true love? Can Mrs. T’s example and words of wisdom help clarify one Old Maid’s Choice between a loving man’s proposal and the siblings who need her? Will Samantha embrace Mrs. T’s words about renewing the soul and clumb down Jacob’s Ladder into the arms of genuine love? As the group begins to quilt in the Four Hearts pattern, will Diana open herself up to the friendship of the circle – and the love of a curious observer? Relax along the banks of the historic Ohio River and watch four searching young women transform into stable servants of the Lord. Their stories will warm your heart and inspire your soul.
