For Those Who Loved The Quilt

Grace had few regrets about her life or her world. A pinch of this, a dash of that, love and laughter in good measure, a few tears to soften her vision when what she saw was too much to bear. And she loved life like she loved her God rich in depth and full of flavor.

Leslie's entire life had been spent building up the size of her world. Bigger office, bigger salary, bigger car. She had fought tooth and nail to gain power and status, and both were now hers.

Without warning the elderly woman and the busy young professional find themselves recuperating from surgery in the same hospital room. Their very different worlds have converged and been reduced to a space measuring ten by twelve. But it is here that, just as unexpectedly, a great expansion of spirit awaits. Together they journey to a gift a new understanding and awareness of the true beauty and purpose of life.

About the Author:

A native North Carolinian who now lives abroad, T. Davis Bunn was recognized internationally as a consultant, lecturer, and speaker in the area of international finance and received invitations to address symposiums, conferences, and management meetings. His professional interests took a decided turn nearly eighteen years ago. Although he continued his career in international finance, he became a "closet" novelist. For nine years, he wrote with discipline and drive, never to have anything published. When one of his novels came to the attention of Bethany House Publishers, his status as an unpublished novelist changed. His first book, The Presence, was published in 1990 and quickly became a bestseller.

A prolific writer, he now has over twenty books in publication, including three with Janette Oke, a wonderful children's picture book called Princess Bella and the Red Velvet Hat, the heartwarming gift book The Quilt, and his latest, The Dream Voyagers, originally published under the pen name Thomas Locke.

"The novels I've had published by Bethany House are the direction I hope my future writing will take--captivating stories of intrigue, drama and faith, with compelling characters in an enjoyable contemporary fictional setting," says Bunn. "The emotional bonding that occurs with the reader in good fiction often gives the Christian message more direct meaning in the reader's life."

Prior to his work in international finance, Davis completed studies in psychology and economics at Wake Forest University. Fluent in three languages, he has traveled extensively in more than forty countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Davis has also avocationally become a serious student of comparative religion, learning from Jewish rabbis, Buddhist monks, Muslim imams, Catholic priests, and Baptist ministers. Drawing on these experiences, Davis fills his books with colorful dialogue and richly textured settings.
