After a tornado rips through her town, merchant Abigail comes across a piece from a wedding dress among the devastation. Abigail is moved to start collecting other swatches of fabric she finds – her neighbor’s kitchen curtains, a man’s necktie, a dog’s bed – which she stashes in shopping bags. As she pursues her seemingly absurd quest, horrible realities spark the question, “What kind of a God would allow such tragedy?”
Contractor Justin helps Abigail start to rebuild her home and shop and attempts to reach her heart, but Abigail struggles to reconcile her right to happiness.
Will her pain give way to the courage to love?
