CFBA: Tempest's Course

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


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.


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.

Well, if the first book that I'm reviewing this year is to be any indication of what I'm in for this year....I say I'm off to a great start!

I have been enjoying the Quilts of Love Series, they are all so different and it's amazing how many stories can be tied to a quilt!

Tom and Kelly have their ghosts...and problems that they need to work through.  Both hired by the elusive owner of the mansion...whom they've never seen, they can't help but wonder...who owns the home.

Kelly, although jumpy, finds an old journal and becomes rather swept up in it, the more she reads, the more confusing things become.  As Tom and Kelly grow closer their secrets seem to close in on them, what will their secrets reveal?  Will they ever come to terms with their past...or will their ghosts haunt them forever?

What a fun read....full of a bit of romance and mystery, enough to keep you wondering....

**I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
