Amber Stockton in her new book, “A Grand Design book coverA Grand Design” Book Twenty in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Alyssa Denham.

From the back cover:   A fun getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs—if only she can let go of her past.

Fifteen years ago, Alyssa Denham stopped taking her annual summer trip to Mackinac Island, refusing to tell anyone the real reason she avoided the island she loved as a child. Now here she is, unexpectedly on the island for two weeks with her best friend, Libby, trying to keep her secrets buried.

Alyssa’s grandmother, who lives on the island, has asked Alyssa and Libby to help piece together a friendship quilt she had started years earlier. Their quest takes them to the homes of some of her grandmother’s long-lost friends, giving Alyssa amazing insight into her grandmother’s life…and attracting the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman.

Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will she finally learn to trust and let God heal her fractured heart?

One of the items on my bucket list is to visit Mackinac Island. I have been in love with this place since I saw the movie, “Somewhere in Time”, and the movie even plays a bit part in the book as well. Alyssa is a wounded puppy. Something happened fifteen years ago when she was on the island and she never wanted to go back for fear of her secrets being revealed. Now, because she has won a trip she has to go back. And her grandmother has something for her to do. Obviously this is not only going to force those secrets out but it gives her a chance for romance. This is a fun light romance that hooks your interest as you tour around this island with Alyssa and Libby. All of the characters are terrific and the plot is very enjoyable.
