    SWEPT AWAY by Laura V. Hilton & Cindy Loven

    SWEPT AWAY by Laura V. Hilton & Cindy Loven is the 23RD book in the Quilts of Love series. It’s the touching story of Sara Jane Morgan, a school teacher, Drew Stevenson, handyman and maker of artisan brooms and Sari Morgan, Sara Jane’s grandmother, a spunky woman fighting early stages Alzheimer and part time matchmaker. While hiring Drew to do repairs on her home under the guise of the possibility of selling it, Grandma hopes to bring her granddaughter and the handyman together as the fitting couple she sees them to be. Sara Jane worries about her Grandma hiring someone she nicknamed “wanna be John the Baptist” from his appearance that they don’t know anything about while also being very sad at the prospect of her selling the only home she’s known since the death of her parents. Although she’s attended church regularly with her Grandma, Sara Jane has a problem with faith and at time even the existence of God. Where was he all those years ago when her prayers went unanswered? Drew accepts Sari’s request to do repairs needing the money for some upcoming out of state events where he sells his brooms. He feels protective of the woman that asks him to call her Grandma, but when she tells him that he’s going to marry her granddaughter, he is more than a little bit taken aback. Drew has his own events from the past to deal with as well as once having a lack of faith. His path took him to hiking the Appalachian Trail where he found his way back to God. Sharing his faith, sometimes through the weaving of his witnessing brooms, is something Drew does openly and frequently now. He witnessed to Sara Jane and again unknowingly through his online trail journeys. When not doing house maintenance jobs for Grandma, Drew is drawn in to helping Grandma and Sara Jane finish the ballad quilt Grandma started years ago that tells the story of Sari and her husband, Caleb. The quilting process and the telling of the stories of each block add greatly to the story. Can Drew and Sara Jane get past their first impressions? Can Grandma’s matchmaking bring these two together? Is it true that opposites attract? How will the diagnosis of Alzheimer affect all of the lives? Will Sara Jane learn to quilt and will they get the ballad quilt finished? I loved how this book shows that some things are to be forgotten after turning them over to God and sweet memories are wonderful to be remembered. Loved the stories behind the quilt blocks and the way they deal with the Alzheimer diagnosis. Having dealt with that dreaded disease with my Mom, I love how patient and loving Sara Jane and Drew were to Sari. I enjoy the way it has a biblical message woven within the pages of the story. I would definitely recommend this book.
