Swept Away by Laura V. Hilton and Cindy Loven is a special Quilts of Love collaboration
Quilts of Love… every quilt has a story…
Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
The last thing I expected when I began reading Swept Away… was a match-making grandma (which reminded me a bit of my favorite series – come back next month to read all about it)… and bless her heart, she’s got a load of problems -– and a big solution!
Unfortunately, she also has two very uncooperative individuals — who balk at every suggestion. Does she give up? Would any self-respecting grandma? No way! She has seem the way they look at each other and she’s determined to see her plans work out for everyone involved.
Sarah Jane started out as someone I didn’t know if I’d like or not… but her grandma is determined to match her with the local handyman, Andrew. Andrew is a bit rough at the beginning, too… but he quickly becomes my favorite character!
As Sarah Jane begins reading his trail journals and learns how he begins to let go of his past hurts, she discovers that he found God in an unexpected place, and how his whole life changed. As Sarah Jane gets more involved in her grandma’s life – and Drew’s – she wants the peace Drew found, but she doesn’t think it’s possible.
With God, all things are possible…
I honestly had no idea when I began reading Swept Away that I would end up with a book that spoke volumes to me. It has all my favorite elements: faith, love, humor, romance, and forgiveness.
If you’ve read Laura’s books, then you know that her books are blessed by God. I don’t think this is the norm for many authors. Laura says she prays – a lot – over her books.
I haven’t read anything else by Cindy Loven, but I look forward to reading more from her… and I can’t wait to see what’s next from Laura!
Get your copy… and prepare to be swept away!
So come back this weekend, when I’ll be interviewing Laura… and talking more about some new books on the horizon.
