Beyond The Storm

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Beyond the Storm
Abingdon Press (October 2012)
Carolyn Zane


Author of 35 books, wife, mother and yes…hot (flasher) lives with her fabulous husband, Matt and their 5 children and 3 dogs in the scenic Willamette Valley in Oregon. When asked to describe her family, Carolyn likens her crowd to the Brangelia Bunch saying modestly, “Only we’re better looking.” Right now,Carolyn is back in the saddle with her new title: Beyond The Storm, coming out in October 2012! In the mean time, be sure to catch her on the critically acclaimed TOOHOTMAMAS Blog where Carolyn and Wendy tackle Marriage, motherhood and menopause: How to do all three and stay out of prison! They are hilarious! You'll wet yourself, guaranteed! Visit them at:


After a tornado rips through her town, store owner Abigail comes across a piece of fabric from a wedding dress among the devastation. Abigail is moved to start collecting other swatches of fabric she finds – her neighbor’s kitchen curtains, a man’s necktie, a dog’s bed – which she stashes in shopping bags. As she pursues her seemingly absurd quest, horrible realities spark the question, “What kind of a God would allow such tragedy?”

As she struggles to reconcile her right to happiness amidst the destruction, Abigail begins piecing together a patchwork quilt from the salvaged fabric in hopes it will bring some peace. But a new relationship with Justin, a contractor, may require too much of her fragile heart. Will her pain and questions of faith give way to the courage to love?

I received Beyond the Storm by Carolyn Zane compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and for those of you that love an outstanding series dedicated to Christian Romance, then you will want to pick up this book in the Quilts of Love Series. I personally rate it a 5 out of 5 stars and being a huge quilter myself and a book lover, I could relate to the devastation in dealing with a natural disaster especially in the midst of Hurricane Sandy hitting the eastern seaboard and hitting the states of New York, New Jersey, and Virginia unexpectedly hard. To come upon the belongings of someone else, your mind automatically wonders who's does it belong to and if they are OK, but often times our first question whenever anything strikes unexpectedly in our personal lives, is "Why, God, Why?" This book does an exceptional job at dealing with possible answers in Abigail's own search for answers.
