You will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.
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.

"Swept Away" is the latest novel in the Quilts of Love series and it was a sweet story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Sara is trying to live her own life; however she is the only family left for her grandmother and feels responsible for her as well especially as Sara feels guilty over her parents' deaths. Andrew has been dealing with hurt and guilt in his life and has been off the radar; however he gets drawn back into society. Throughout the book both Andrew and Sara are trying to sort through things in their own lives and if there is anyway to move forward. This is a complex book as there is so much included in this book including details about hiking, quilting, ballads, in addition to family relationships and moving forward and forgiving one's self. "Swept Away" is one of my favorite books in this series so far; I highly recommend this.
