About The Book: Sara doesn't 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 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.
Still, it doesn't take Sara Jane long to see Drew isn't what he seems. Questions arise, and she starts researching him online. What she discovers could change her life---and her heart---forever.

My Thoughts About The Book: Swept Away was a book I struggled with. It was amazing, but the story line of Alzheimers really touched me. The authors did an amazing job in character development. I felt as if I knew each one of them first hand. This book is one of the Quilts of Love collection yet, it is a stand-alone. I have read all of the series to date and was delighted by each one. This book contained several crafty ideas that were very interesting. The ballad quilt drew me in, I am now planning my own ballad quilt for a tune my grandfather used to play called Maggie. Drew's homemade brooms with the faith connection were such a neat way to weave in the faith part of the story. I loved the Grandmother best of all. This is a must read! Loved it!
