"May the New Year bring us Peace, contentment and hope."
As each holiday season approaches, some revel in welcoming the New Year ahead; others quietly mourn the passing of time go by. "We can't hold on to the past," says Master Quilter Slyvia Compson, "but we can keep the best part of 'Auld Lang Syne' in our hearts and in our memories, and we can look forward to the future with hope and resolve."
As Sylvia, a late-in-life newlywed, had discovered, love can enter our lives at any age. Yet before she can truly delight in her present happiness, she must face the sorrow hidden in her past- her own role in the tragic circumstances that left her estranged from her sister, Claudia, until it was too late to make amends. Vowing not to repeat the mistake with her new daughter-in-law, Amy, who opposed Sylvia's marriage to her father, Andrew, Sylvia must convince Amy that family is more precious than pride.
