In a small New England community, the residents find that through their struggles - from lighthearted dilemmas to death and despair to personal demons - they're inextricably entwined with a phoenix quilt through which they are given the opportunity for change and rebirth. A brother and sister, who grew up in a poverty stricken lobster fishing family, rediscover their childhood friendship when she finds in his cupboard the quilt she'd made for him and that they had shared as children. Mourning the death of her husband of forty -eight years, Elsie dicovers while making a quilt from her dead husband's clothes, that despite the struggles and despair, she loved their life dance.In the midst of a devastating divorce, Karen liberates her rage through a crimson fabric and hard labour and eventually breaks the old rules and creates a new life for herself. Heartwarming and inspirational, The Phoenix Quilt illustrates that solitude, heartache and destruction are often the catalyst for a new life, if one has a hopeful heart.
