Sometimes beautiful things come from odd pieces of fabric, and it doesn't matter if they're a little tattered. They still keep you warm. Just like family.
Annabelle Hubbard thinks she has good reason to be exhausted all the time: she's the caretaker for three good-hearted but challenging grandkids and a three-legged cat named Ms. Pickles, plus she feels awkward about settling like a charity case into her grandmother's home, now owned by her wealthy cousin Regina in Wichita, Kansas.
Regina and Annabelle have always been close, and Regina doesn't begrudge her beleaguered cousin one bit of help. Family is family! After all, Annabelle supports Regina's romance with silver-haired Wichita attorney Sam Duncan, who encourages Regina to believe in herself again after years with a cheating husband.
But Regina and Annabelle's kinship is put to the test when Annabelle's ex-con son-in-law shows up demanding to get to know his kids.
As Annabelle sets out on a healthy new lifestyle while accepting the romantic advances of a retired coach, Regina wrestles with Sam's marriage proposal, and the dramas of their quickly stitched-together family tug at the seams.

I am so sorry this book ended. Patchwork Family is a wonderful story of love and all the forms it takes in our lives. I hope there will be more stories from Bonnie Tharp. She has a real gift. I had a hard time putting it down.
I read a lot of books with no particular favorite subject. This book had thought and emotions, a little mystery and lots of love. Bonnie is a wonderful writer and I can't wait to read more.
