Two bestselling novelists combine their creativity and skill for two stories threaded together by the concept of a “story jar,” a place for memories and mementoes that honor and encourage mothers. In Bedford’s The Hair Ribbons, a mother’s love and strength is passed down to a daughter facing the same disease that took her mother–breast cancer. In Hatcher’s Heart Rings, a mother and daughter learn to reach across the generation gap and ultimately accept each other with love.

The Story Jar includes letters and anecdotes about motherhood from other authors, including Jerry Jenkins, Francine Rivers, Lori Copeland, and Debbie Macomber.
