Book Review and Giveaway: Tempest's Course by Lynette Sowell

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge, from Litfuse PR, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it.



Welcome to our stop on the Tempest's Course book blog tour today!



Synopsis:

Kelly Frost, a textiles conservator, is invited to the Massachusetts coastal town of New Bedford to restore a 150-year-old Mariner's Compass quilt, with one stipulation: she must live and work in Gray House where the quilt is stored. Tom Silva, whose heart seems as hard as the rocky coastline, is the caretaker employed by the mysterious absent owner of Gray House.

Over the long-lit months as Kelly works to restore the quilt, she is drawn out of her self-imposed shell and embraces the family God has given her after her own family failed her. As Kelly reads stories in a journal penned by Mary Gray, she learns there is no transgression beyond God's forgiveness, but the real obstacle is forgiving herself. During her and Tom's journey to grace and love, an unknown force works to keep both of them from discovering a long-buried truth that will change their lives forever.

Review:

The last book in out Quilts of Love series we're reviewing, I think was the best! But then I like history and when a novel can incorporate a historical type mystery, I'm hooked! So I loved the whole premise before I even started the book! Like other books in the series, faith and God's grace are the main theme of the book, with a nice mystery and love story thrown in. This is a wonderful book for giving to friends and family, who love a nice story. It's perfect for reading by the fire!
