Swept Away

Swept Away – Book Review

One of my favorite delights each month is curling up with the latest book in the Quilts Of Love series from Abingdon Press – a standalone series of contemporary and historical novels by some of the most talented Christian writers in publishing today.

This month’s selection – Swept Away by Laura V. Hilton and Cindy Loven – is an enjoyable contemporary romance that fans of the series will love!

Swept Away takes us to the Appalachians and into the lives of teacher Sara Jane Morgan and her beloved grandmother.

Sara Jane lost her parents when she was young and her grandmother spent her life caring for her. Now, the roles are reversing as her grandmother is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s – but Grandma is not going down without a fight.

Grandma is determined to ensure that Sara Jane is provided for – so she decides to play matchmaker! She hires Andrew Stevenson – an artisan broom-maker who is moonlighting as a handyman to pay the bills – in the hopes that he will sweep Sara off her feet.

Of course, as you would imagine, the matchmaking process doesn’t go quite as smoothly as Grandma would like. Sara suspects that Andrew isn’t exactly who he appears to be, which leads her to go digging into his past…

Woven into the fabric of each story in this series is a quilt, and in Swept Away, Grandma is teaching Sara to quilt as she races against the clock to complete the Ballad Quilt she started as a teenager.

Swept Away is a fun story to read, but it also touches upon many important issues and themes that readers will relate to.

This book is another winner from the folks at Abingdon Press and Quilts Of Love.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    I love Laura V Hilton’s books already as she writes many books on the Amish culture. Writing about Quilts seems to go right along the same idea and using life and romance to boot to teach another while learning to quilt seems like another great story to read.

      Thanks for sharing that tidbit, Lisa!
      This is my first read by both of these authors. That’s one of the things I really enjoy about the series – I’ve found a lot of authors I’ve really enjoyed that I might not have discovered had it not been for this series!
