Description

Tempest's Course book. Lynette Sowell in her new book, Tempest’s Course Book Thirteen in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Kelly Frost.

Tempest's Course book. From the back cover: Woven with stories from the past, the Mariner’s Compass quilt brings a new direction for Kelly and Tom. Kelly Frost, a textiles conservator, is invited to the Massachusetts coastal town of Fairhaven to restore the centuries-old Mariner’s Compass quilt.

I sent word to Esteban through his sister, the seamstress, who helped me begin the quilt. I tell him that I am ready to work on his reading lessons once again. Esteban does not come to our customary. My desolation gives me a physical ache. I decided to disguise myself and take a cab to his section of town. There is Esteban, walking the cobblestoned streets with a dark-haired beauty. I find his mother’s house and she turns me away, screaming at me in Portuguese. I know enough to discern that I have lost my little Peter forever.

All you need is a little love and careful handling, she said aloud, her voice echoing in the room. The folded-up layers of fabric needed to be inspected, inch by inch, which meant Kelly needed to find a place to spread out the quilt. Somewhere with better lighting than the bedroom. One of the inner shutters that covered the windowpanes effectively blocked out the sunlight, but even with both shutters open, the light wouldn’t nearly be enough.

Kelly Frost, a textiles conservator, is invited to the Massachusetts coastal city of New Bedford to restore a 150-year-old Mariner's Compass quilt. But there is one stipulation: she must live and work in Gray House, a former whaling captain's home, where the quilt is stored. There she meets Army veteran Tom Pereira, the caretaker of Gray House, whose heart seems as hard as the rocky Massachusetts coastline. Over the long-lit months as Kelly works to restore the quilt, she and Tom grow closer. And as she reads stories in a daily journal penned by Mary Gray, she learns the secrets of the quilt and Mary's own sad tale of regret. Then Tom learns secrets of his own family's past, and both Tom and Kelly learn they are tied to Gray House in ways they never imagined.

A child of the Foster Care System, Kelly Frost, now grown up is owner of Frost Textile Services and has been called upon to restore a quilt that is in Gray House, New Bedford, a vacant whaling captain's mansion. Upon winning the bid/contract Kelly is surprised to learn that one of the requirements is that she live on site whilst doing the restoration. Gray House has not been lived in for at least 70 years! On her first day at the house, Kelly finds Mary Gray's journal from 1850 to 1853. What will that reveal as Kelly reads a couple entries each day?

Tom Pereira, 31, medically discharged from the Army, is responsible for the grounds. He has a history of seizures and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Who is the mysterious owner of the house? Will Tom and Kelly ever meet him/her? Can Kelly ever leave the stigma of unknowingly having an affair with a married man or will it continue to haunt her? What will Tom say/think when he finds out? Are hope and forgiveness still a reachable reality?

This is NOT a fast paced suspenseful book but it does keep you intrigued and moving along. With a Christian undertone (not preachy) it is written with Christian morals in place. An easy, relaxing, well-written read that I really enjoyed.

I selected this book because I'm from New England and interested in textile conservation. I only wish it had been categorized from the get-go as Christian fiction. The reader sort of gets hit over the head with it numerous times; it detracts from the story in a couple of places but can be ignored for the most part. Had it been characterized, I probably would not have started it. As it was, I stuck with it for the parts I did like.

Not subtle, either in the Christian vein or in the genealogy vein; once the genealogy character comes into the picture, you know what's going to happen.

The story isn't a bad read, just predictable and overbearing. The juxtaposition with the "mystery" character is not smooth at all, and adds to the predictability.

I choose the rating of 5 stars because this novel deserves ti. The book was easy to read and kept your interest through out the intriguing story. i would recommend this book to christians, quilters and anyone who enjoys a good mystery/romance. Well written and enjoyable story,. As read i felt like i was in the town and apart of the story. Great descriptions and it was interesting to learn a little about restoration and history as well. A must read!

I enjoyed the sweet romance and the interspersing of the historical diary with the modern-day story. I was left wondering why the old man acted the way he did and would have liked to know more to explain the ending.

What a refreshing read! It was nice to read a mystery, with a little romance, that wasn't full of sex, language and violence. It was a shocker when revealed how it all came to together for these two. Thanks for a great book and will definitely be looking for more books by this author.
As a quilter, this story has significant meaning. There is definitely history in every stitch. Enjoyable story, and you feel as if you are right there with Kelly and Tom through everything.
