Tempest's Course

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.

My Thoughts On The Book:  It refreshing to see God was at work in the heroine's life. It was a perfect set up.  He sent her everything she needed at just the perfect time, which is so like God.. I really enjoyed the relationship that develops between Kelly and Tom, but my most favorite part of the story had nothing to do with the characters from this centure.  My favorite part had to do with the journal entries from Mary Gray.  The story of the quilt came to life.  As the daughter of a quilter and quilt restorer this who process brought back many memories and made the story so very real.  I loved the romance, suspense, mystery provided in the story.  This was a book that has it all and I cannot wait to get my hands on another book by Lynette Sowell. I was blown away by the ending.  That was definitely not one that I saw coming.
