The Patchwork Bride
Ellen is putting the finishing touches on a wedding quilt when the bride-to-be--her granddaughter June--unexpectedly arrives and announces she's calling off the marriage. With the tending of June's uncertain heart in mind, Ellen tells her the story of Nell, a Kansas-born woman who goes to the High Plains of New Mexico Territory in 1898 in search of a husband. Nell falls for a cowboy named Buddy, but runs away when he breaks her heart. In her search for a soul mate, Nell will run away from marriage twice more before finding the love of her life. Another stunning, emotional novel from the author of The Last Midwife (2015).
