The "New York Times" Bestseller That Reads Like a Back-Porch Conversation with Reba
In a dazzling career, Reba McEntire has become a true country superstar--and a trailblazing businesswoman with her own multimedia entertainment corporation. Yet she is a rare celebrity who is also beloved by her millions of fans for the way she lives her life. For Reba has balanced the demands of career and family, succeeded in show business without sacrificing her values, and kept up with the times without abandoning her country roots.
Here Reba writes about the roles a modern woman tries to fill, roles as many and varied as the fabric pieces of an heirloom quilt. Facing the challenges of being a wife, mother, stepmother, daughter, sister, performer, executive, community member, and Christian, Reba has found inspiration and comfort in the values of her past as an Oklahoma ranch girl. In this generous and wise book, she shows how you can keep traditional values fresh and vital in your own search for a fulfilling life.
Whether you read it for instant warmth or lasting inspiration, Comfort from a Country Quilt is a book that will make your spirits soar like the sweet high notes of a Reba McEntire song.
