A Quilts of Love book.
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.

My Review: 

Kelly Frost has made a bad mistake in her life, and now she is living with the consequences. She is a textile conservator, and now in desperate need of a job. When a chance to restore, an almost destroyed, 1850's quilt. She has no idea what she is getting into. One of the requirements that she must comply with is living in the old Gray House mansion. Kind of scary, but love the way she handles it.
Also working, but not living at the mansion is Tom Silva, a medically discharged Army veteran. He is coming to terms with his injuries, and the lack of his Dad's approval.
Loved the descriptions of Kelly's work on the old quilt, and the searching for the right fabric, and trying to piece such fragile material. I found this so interesting.
Will Kelly and Tom be able to help one another, one a discarded child, the other from a warm extended family. Each trying to prove their worth.
Will Kelly's past continue to haunt her? Is it a coincidence that they are both at the mansion at the same time? Or does God have a hand in this?
I really enjoy this read, never saw some of the things that happen coming! Enjoy!

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
