Overview

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 also as an artisan, designing homemade brooms. When Sara Jane’s grandmother hires him to renovate her home, sparks fly between him 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 online researching him. What she discovers could change her life—and her heart—forever.

This first collaboration between seasoned author Hilton (Patchwork Dreams) and fellow pastor’s wife Loven is an easy read. Sari Morgan is set on marrying her granddaughter Sara Jane off to new handyman Drew Stevenson, but she’s in a race against time as Alzheimer’s threatens her matchmaking and the stubborn pair resist her efforts. Sara Jane views Drew as a “John the Baptist wannabe”; he sees her as a “high-maintenance drama queen.” Each has experienced a loss too great to speak of with the other. Yet their mutual attraction draws them together as strongly as their misconceptions work to keep them apart. Drew has overcome grief and found his way back to God by hiking the Appalachian Trail, while Sara Jane struggles to believe that God exists and continues to blame herself for the deaths of her parents. Intermittently, the three of them work on Sari’s ballad quilt, sewing a story that resembles their own lives as much as it does the folk ballad “Pretty Saro.” The authors blend a simple romance with the somber, universal issues of death, illness, and forgiveness in a relatable tale full of likable characters.
