Yet Reba McEntire is that rare celebrity who is also beloved by her millions of fans for the way she lives her life, for successful balancing the demands of a career and family, for competing in show business without sacrificing her values, for managing to "keep it country" while keeping up with the times. She has done so, in large part, by drawing wisdom and strength from the precious traditions of her country past, finding inspiring new relevance in old-fashioned values.
In this deeply personal, "back porch conversation" of a book, Reba shares a generous helping of these life experiences. In "Comfort From A Country Quilt" Reba writes about the roles a modern country woman tries to fulfill, roles as many and varied as the fabric pieces of an heirloom quilt.
Facing the challenges of being a wife, mother, stepmother, daughter, sister, entertainer, executive, community member, and Christian, Reba shows the constantly enriching spirit she carries forward from her roots as a ranch girl growing up in Chockie, Oklahoma, and the powerful heritage of classic country music. Rather than proving quaint and stale, Reba shows over and over the ways that the traditional values remain fresh and vital.
