Sara Jane Morgan is used to dealing with a roomful of students, but her grandmother is another story. Grandma has big plans to teach Sarah how to quilt, while Sara doesn't want anything to do with it for the most part. She is more concerned with her Grandmother's diminishing health and her unpredictable behavior, which sometimes puts Sara into difficult situations. Drew the handyman, is a very complex character with a complicated past. When he meets Sara, he is immediately enthralled by her beauty, but their relationship gets off to a very rocky/tricky start. Their encounters throughout the book are sometimes cringe-worthy, but I found myself rooting for love to win all the way until the last page.
I really enjoyed "Swept Away" and I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys Christian, contemporary romance with an underlying theme of quilting and crafting. The only thing I was not happy with was the bad light that was placed on foster care in a couple quick moments of the book. My husband and I are certified foster parents and while we know that there are some "bad apples" out there, the foster families we know have really big hearts for kids. Our country desperately needs more good, loving foster families so the more encouragement there is out there for that, the better. Ok, I will get off my soapbox now. :) Anyway, like I said, this was a very enjoyable book. It's a fast, fun read and it will keep you turning the pages late into the evening. The characters are well developed and complex, and the plot deals with a lot of real life issues such as dealing with elderly loved ones in kind and caring ways. Read this book! :)
