The Patchwork Bride by Sandra Dallas ($12.99)
From Sandra Dallas, the best-selling author of A Quilt for Christmas, comes The Patchwork Bride, the irrepressible story of a runaway bride.
Ellen is putting the finishing touches on a wedding quilt made from scraps of old dresses 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.
Working as a biscuit-shooter, Nell falls for a cowboy named Buddy. She sees a future together, but she can’t help wondering if his feelings for her are true. When Buddy breaks her heart, she runs away.
In her search for a soul mate, Nell will run away from marriage twice more before finding the love of her life. It’s a tale filled with excitement, heartbreak, disappointment, and self-discovery―as well as with hard-earned life lessons about love. Another stunning, emotional novel from a master storyteller.
If you’re looking for a light, romantic read, this is it! It also has elements of historical fiction, which I really like.
The story synopsis is printed on the flap of the dust jacket.
It was easy to connect and relate to the characters. The author did such a great job with them. The pace of the story is also good. It was not draggy and the ending is definitely a satisfying one.
It’s also a great read for Women’s Month because there are strong, independent women in the story and there are also parts where it shows a great bond between the female characters.
From the bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet comes a powerful novel, inspired by a true story, about a boy whose life is transformed at Seattle’s epic 1909 World’s Fair.
“An evocative, heartfelt, beautifully crafted story that shines a light on a fascinating, tragic bit of forgotten history.”—Kristin Hannah, author of The Nightingale
For twelve-year-old Ernest Young, a charity student at a boarding school, the chance to go to the World’s Fair feels like a gift. But only once he’s there, amid the exotic exhibits, fireworks, and Ferris wheels, does he discover that he is the one who is actually the prize. The half-Chinese orphan is astounded to learn he will be raffled off—a healthy boy “to a good home.”
The winning ticket belongs to the flamboyant madam of a high-class brothel, famous for educating her girls. There, Ernest becomes the new houseboy and befriends Maisie, the madam’s precocious daughter, and a bold scullery maid named Fahn. Their friendship and affection form the first real family Ernest has ever known—and against all odds, this new sporting life gives him the sense of home he’s always desired.
But as the grande dame succumbs to an occupational hazard and their world of finery begins to crumble, all three must grapple with hope, ambition, and first love.
Fifty years later, in the shadow of Seattle’s second World’s Fair, Ernest struggles to help his ailing wife reconcile who she once was with who she wanted to be, while trying to keep family secrets hidden from their grown-up daughters.
Against a rich backdrop of post-Victorian vice, suffrage, and celebration, Love and Other Consolations is an enchanting tale about innocence and devotion—in a world where everything, and everyone, is for sale.
Here’s another book with a mix of romance and historical fiction!
What makes the story more interesting is that it is based on the true story!
It also gives us a peek of what America was like in the early 1900s. The story is quite heavy, as it touches subjects like physical abuse and human trafficking.
Each chapter is set in a different time period, from the 1960s to 1900s. The author’s style is quite compelling, so it was hard for us to put the book down!
It’s another great month for BookCase.Club! This month’s romance book picks are contrasting, as one is a light read and the other tackles heavier topics, but both are really enjoyable. If you’re also into reading and you’re always wondering what to read next, BookCase.Club is for you. They send the books straight to your door, so you don’t need to go out and scour bookstores for your next great read! They offer different genres as well! In case you’re not into romance, they also have sci-fi, thriller, and more!
