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.g
My thoughts: I had high hopes for this book, since it looked like a fun story. While I did enjoy several of the characters and the historical aspect of the quilt, I have to say that Sara Jane bugged me. As the story goes on, you kind of figure out why she is the way that she is, but I still was a bit put off by how shallow she was about looks in the beginning.
Other than that, the rest of the story is good. It is a wonderful quilting story about ballad quilts! It also is a great story of not judging a book by it`'s cover, since there winds up being more to Drew and Sara Jane as the story goes on.
While this isn't my favorite in the series, I would still recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my review.
