Blurb for The Doctor’s Christmas Quilt by Kathi Macias:

When her unwed medical student daughter discloses that she is pregnant, Dr. Laura Branson is torn between excitement and fear. Until now, her beliefs and stance on pro-life issues have been more theoretical than personal. When she receives a Christmas gift—a quilt that depicts the life of pioneer Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor in America—she is forced to wrestle with her convictions and examine everything she stands for in light of her faith.
