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.
Lynette can be reached through the Contact link on her Blog.
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:
The Quilts of Love series has been such a joy to read!  Every time I think the books can't possibly get any better an author really surprises me...Lynette Sowell has done just that!  Sowell has written a book with rich characterization.  The transformation the main characters go through is simply a joy to read.  The description places the reader right in the middle of the story.  Tempest's Course had taken it's place as one of my favorites in this amazing series.  
I'm only sorry that I have not discovered Sowell's writing before now...I'll be sure to look for more material from her in the future!

Happy New Year and Happy Reading,
