Tempest Course by Lynette Sowell Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Tempest's Course
Abingdon Press (December 17, 2013)
by
Lynette Sowell

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lynette Sowell is an award-winning novelist. Her most recent novel, Tempest’s Course, is part of the Quilts of Love line from Abingdon Press. When Lynette’s not writing, she divides her time between editing medical reports and chasing down news stories for the Copperas Cove Leader-Press. Lynette was born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland but makes her home in Coppress Cove, Texas, with her husband and a herd of cats who have them well-trained.



My Thoughts on this Book:
 
What a wonderful book. I couldn't put this down at all until I found out how it ended. Lynette surely knows how to grab you and pull you into the story. Felt like I was there with Kelly and Tom. Kelly, a textile conservator, finds herself working on an old compass quilt. In serious need of money she moves to the coastal down and begins the restoration. She doesn't know though how working in this old house will change her life forever.
 
Tom, a wounded veteran is employed at Gray House, the home where Kelly is restoring the quilt. There two lives cross as he works on the garden and she the quilt. Both don't know how there interaction will bring new meaning to their lives..
 


ABOUT THE BOOK

Kelly Frost, a textiles conservator, is invited to the Massachusetts coastal city of New Bedford to restore a 150-year-old Mariner's Compass quilt. But there is one stipulation: she must live and work in Gray House, a former whaling captain's home, where the quilt is stored. There she meets Army veteran Tom Pereira, the caretaker of Gray House, whose heart seems as hard as the rocky Massachusetts coastline. Over the long-lit months as Kelly works to restore the quilt, she and Tom grow closer. And as she reads stories in a daily journal penned by Mary Gray, she learns the secrets of the quilt and Mary's own sad tale of regret. Then Tom learns secrets of his own family's past, and both Tom and Kelly learn they are tied to Gray House in ways they never imagined.
