Laura V. Hilton & Cindy Loven in their new book, “Swept Away book coverSwept Away” Book Twenty-Three in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Sara Jane Morgan.

From the back cover:   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

Sari Morgan is Sara Jane’s Grandmother who is in in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Her one big desire is to see Sara Jane married to a wonderful man and Sari picks Andrew as that man. There are some things in life that we should remember and others that we need to forget and heal from. “Swept Away” explores both these memories in a very clever manner. Sari, because of the disease, is forgetting things and both Sara Jane and Andrew have things in their past that they need to forget but have a hard time letting go. And then there is the Ballad Quilt which Sari and Sara Jane are trying to finish together to remember pieces of Sari’s life. Ms. Hilton and Ms. Loven have given us a great deal of story that all works itself out with a great deal of help from God. There are moments of great fun and moments of high emotion but through it all there is lots of love. This book will keep you thinking.
