Loree Lough: Warm Memories

(February 6, 2013)
Christa A. Banister
In the winter’s coldest months, a quilt is a must-have for personal comfort unless you’re lucky enough to live somewhere warm. That familiar staple of winter takes on even greater meaning in Loree Lough’s new novel, For Love of Eli (Abingdon Press).

The story of the aftermath of unspeakable tragedy, a young boy named Eli is left without any parents. Committed to helping him remember the people who gave him life, Eli’s legal guardian, his aunt, creates a family quilt to tell their story.

“When someone takes the time to sew the events of a loved one’s life into a quilt, it serves as a reminder—and offers warmth,” Loree says. “When the memories include those who dwell in Paradise and those who are close enough to touch, it’s truly as comforting as a hug.”

Hoping that readers will be inspired by a story where God’s encompassing love is front and center, Loree says she hopes For Love of Eli can “inspire healing and forgiveness, even in the most stubborn and lonely hearts.”
