Quilts of Love series: Swept Away {a book review}

New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series: Swept Away

About the book

Sara doesn’t think she wants love. But her grandmother has other plans.

Sara Jane Morgan is trying to balance teaching with caring for her ailing, stubborn grandmother. When school lets out for the summer, the plans are for Grandma to teach Sara Jane to quilt as they finish up the Appalachian Ballad quilt Grandma started as a teenager. But things don’t always go as planned.

Andrew Stevenson is hiding from his past—and his future. He works as a handyman to pay the bills, but his heart is as an artisan, designing homemade brooms. When Sara Jane’s grandmother hires him to renovate her home, sparks fly between Drew and his new employer’s granddaughter.

Still, it doesn’t take Sara Jane long to see Drew isn’t what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her life—and her heart—forever.

What I thought of the book

I enjoy history, and the history that quilts can portray. One of my dreams has always been to hike the Appalachian Trail. Combine these aspects into a book, and it's sure to be an enjoyable read for me. In addition, my grandmother had Alzheimer's, so I can empathize with Sara Jane in this case.

All in all, I really did enjoy this book, and invite you to check it out. You can read an excerpt here.
