A Grand Design book review and Kindle Fire GIVEAWAY

Quilts of Love is a really neat series of books.  Each book has a different author, and each story is wildly different, but they each feature a quilt.  So far, I've read A Stitch and a Prayer, Maybelle in StitchesA Sky Without Stars, and my personal favorite, Rival Hearts.  Today's book is A Grand Design.

Alyssa, who is not engaged or even dating, for that matter, enters a bridal contest on a dare, and wins a romantic 2 week getaway for two to the island where her grandmother lives.  She spent many summers there as a child, but hasn't been back in more than a decade.  She takes her best friend, Libby, with her on the vacation trip.

When Grandma hears that Alyssa is coming back, she decides it's time to tackle a project she's long dreamed of:  a special quilt from members of her former island quilting guild that fizzled out long ago, when her husband was dying of cancer.

Alyssa and Libby are chauffeured around the no-vehicles island in horse-drawn carriage by the handsome Scott, who takes an interest in Alyssa.  At each stop, they collect another quilt square, and a few more stories, giving Alyssa a greater understanding of her grandmother.

Don’t miss this month’s Quilts of Love book, A Grand Design by Amber Stockton. Who hasn't struggled to let painful memories go and move into God's healing? You’ll be sure to love this heartfelt and encouraging tale set on historic Mackinac Island.
