Would you move into an old house to do your job if it meant you wouldn’t have to pay your own expenses? What if there was a mystery behind the house and you had your own professional secrets you didn’t want uncovered? Tempest’s Course is more than another book in the Quilts of Love series. This book is the story of Kelly Frost whose job it is to restore a quilt that is 150 years old.
But while she is restoring the quilt and living in the old whaling captain’s home will she find more than she bargained for?

About the 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.
