Product Description

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.

    A fun, refreshing read that will make you think about your own relationships. Sara Jane Morgan, a high school teacher, cares for her grandmother, whose memory is failing. Grandma wants to teach her to quilt and in the process finish the Appalachian Ballad quilt she began decades ago. The quilt not only shares a song but reflects Grandmas own life.

    Drew, a broom maker and handyman who has hiked the Appalachian trail. Grandma hires him to do some work on her house, and that leads to some interesting interaction and maybe a developing romance between him and Sara Jane. After all, Grandma proclaimed they were going to marry. Read the novel to see how it all turns out. I do think the physical elements were more than needed.

    Don't we all know that grandmothers know best? They've been there, done that. This is exactly what Sara's grandmother hopes Sara will come to realize soon. After all, time is running out for her grandmother to see to it that Sara is happily married and taken care of. Having just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, her future is uncertain. But one thing is certain... Sara needs someone to sweep her off her feet. And she knows just the person... if only Sara would cooperate with her.

    Sara couldn't be less interested in the man that her grandmother deems as worthy of her granddaughter. He definitely didn't seem her type and he makes brooms. He's also nothing grand to look at, either, and might be just a tad bit scary looking. Andrew just wishes he didn't like Sara. Both are caught up in their first opinions that neither of them are willing to consider the possibility that things may not be as they seem. It was a good reminder on first impressions and not "judging a book by its cover."

    Having just watched my parents be caretakers for my grandparents, this book hit home. The sacrifice, the joy, the struggles, and the decisions can all be overwhelming. It's something that they, nor I, would ever regret. I was very impressed with Sara and her attitude and love for her grandmother.

    The book is a sweet romance that flowed so easily to the reader. As much as the romance was enjoyable to read about, the relationship between Sara and her grandmother were equally enjoyable.

    This is a book that will have you thinking about your grandparents!

    Swept Away was a fun romance, while still dealing with some difficult issues. I liked Sara Jane Morgan, although at first she was pretty judgmental about the outward appearance of Drew Stevenson. However, I did enjoy the growth of her character throughout the book. She had a lot on her plate, dealing with a grandmother who was starting to show signs of Alzheimers. I thought she dealt with the situations involving her grandmother in a loving way. Her character had some pretty big issues from childhood and a definite grudge against God, who she wasnt even sure she believed existed.

    Drew was a great character. I did think it was fabulous that he began the story as a man with a very overgrown, bearded appearance. It gave Sara Jane, her grandmother, and the reader a chance to get to know him for the person he is inside. Drew also has issues from the past. Although he had a great witness and testimony, he still had family issues to work through in the book and it was fun seeing him restore relationships that had fallen apart. I was very impressed with the way he treated Sari (the grandmother).

    I really thought the tension between Sara Jane and Drew was good. There was quite a bit of one step forward, many steps back, which helped build the anticipation of these two finally getting together. The ending resolved a little quickly for me and I would have liked it to have had another chapter. But, I did enjoy this book.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Laura V. Hilton & Cindy Loven in their new book, Swept 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 doesnt 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 dont always go as planned.

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

    Still, it doesnt take Sara Jane long to see Drew isnt what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her lifeand her heartforever

    Sari Morgan is Sara Janes Grandmother who is in in the early stages of Alzheimers 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 Saris 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.

    To say that Sara Jane Morgan's grandmother has lost her mind is an understatement.She just doesn't want to be the one to admit that the diagnosis she received from her doctor reveals that she is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. The fact that she can't remember the most basic things like where she parked the car, to what she wanted on her to do list, or even what she had for dinner, isn't something she is ready to admit.

    All she knows is that time is running out to find a suitable man for her grand daughter Sara and while she is at it, she is hoping to finish what is known as a Ballad Quilt. Quilt blocks designed around the lyrics of a song that impart the memories from her own past, the one where she fell in love. She can know hope she can figure out a way to get the handy man she hired at the local crafter's fair to see a future in Sara.

    Sara knows that her grandmother is up to something, she just didn't figure it would come out so bold in her words to a man she can hardly find attractive. Looking more like Grizzly Adams, Andrew Stevenson, an artisan who makes handmade brooms, isn't like to sweep her off her feet or anything else for that matter. She just has to figure out a way to let her grandmother know she isn't interested. She can't imagine how her grandmother can hire a man she doesn't know to spend time fixing up her cabin. For all she knows he could be a serial killer. But once grandmother Sari has it in her mind, there is no changing it. She can only hope she simply forget him like she has been forgetting everything else lately. She just isn't ready to deal with losing her grandmother and all the wonderful memories she has of the parents she feels responsible for their deaths.

    But Sara isn't the only one hiding things in their past memories. It appears that Andrew or Drew does as well. But like everyone else he has ever met, so many people judge based on appearances and with the way Sara deals with him, just goes to prove his point. If only he didn't feel attracted to her. However he knows once his work with her grandmother as a hired hand is finished, he would be out of their lives forever. But will her grandmother's to do list ever be finished?

    I received Swept Away from Laura V. Hilton and Cindy Loven compliments of Abingdon Press and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. In exchange for my free complimentary copy of the book, I am not asked to provide a favorable but honest review and have not received any monetary compensation. This is the 23rd novel in the Quilts of Love Series and each is a stand alone novel that centers around a quilt. These can be read in any order and are written by various authors. Swept Away engages readers to examine their internal feelings and how we often times feel that to hid our pasts is the best way to move forward in life hoping to leave our pain behind us. Too often however, that fails to work well and will rise to the surface when we least expect it. Sometimes when things go wrong in our lives the first person we often blame is God. We wonder why He didn't alter the event the way we like and fail to understand the reasons behind it until much later if we understand it at all this side of heaven. Sometimes the only way we can deal with that pain is to let it go and hand it over to God. In the end, healing can be found. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars. It includes a sneak peek at Masterpiece Marriage and a Reader's Discussion Guide at the conclusion.
