Welcome to the Blog Blitz & Giveaway for The Sewing Sisters’ Society, a collection of historical novellas by Ruth Logan Herne, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Sewing Sisters Cover 2 (4)Title: The Sewing Sisters’ Society
Author: Ruth Logan Herne
Genre: Historical/Western Romance novellas
Release Date: January 22, 2019

Hattie McGillicuddy might not look like your typical matchmaker, but Hattie makes things happen in the little town of Second Chance, South Dakota. With the arrival of the railroad and official statehood, Hattie’s determined to bring brides west, and not just any brides. Brides who need the wide open prairie as much as the prairie- and the prairie men- need them! Three pioneer stories of unlikely love are woven around a little town full of homespun characters that take us back to another place and another time but with the same faith, hope and love we cherish today.

Macy can’t sew a lick, and she’s come to town with a sacrifice and a secret, but when Hattie’s first apprentice is attracted to the pastor of the only church in town—the man raising her illegitimate son— will the truth set her free? Or make her leave the town and her son behind? (The Pastor Takes a Wife)

Unjustly accused, Nellie comes west to escape the law. She has a way with tucks and gathers, and every Western town could use more tucks and gathers. She’s determined to improve the drab look of the prairie and manages to brighten hearts as well. But will her quick speech and firm ideas of women’s suffrage draw Levi Eichas closer or send the somber carriage maker running? (Second Chance Christmas)

Grief has robbed Ann Hazel, but when her aunt pushes her to go west and help an ailing Hattie McGillicuddy turn hems, Ann’s shamed into it. She’s managed to avoid life for awhile, but when Sol Eichas’s nanny comes down sick, Ann reluctantly agrees to help. As she winds her way around Sol’s heart and home, can the two troubled souls leave the past behind to embrace a future together? (Second Chance at Love)

EXCERPT

If ever a woman was in the wrong place, this was her and Second Chance was it, Levi decided as he retraced his steps back to the smithy.

Gussied up dresses. Fancy ribbons and bows. Layers and fluff and ruffly things.

You caught her on fire.

Levi’s heart had stopped. Luckily his hands had no such option, and the look on her face when he doused the burning gown with soot-water indicated she wanted to kill him.

She might yet, after she got warm, but that look— as if she couldn’t have gotten any lower on the ladder of life, and then did— cut him to the core.

He’d seen that look before. His stepmother had been a fancy dress-wearing woman, and she’d tried her best to talk his father out of coming west, but they’d come because everyone did what Henry Eichas said. 

And then she’d left him, his three younger sisters and her tough-as-nails husband, as if being there, being their mother and Henry’s wife, wasn’t good enough.

“Levi.” His sister Rachel hailed him from the opposite side of the road. “I brought the wagon in to pick up that lumber. We can ride back home together.”

“I can’t go, yet. I’ve got stuff to finish.”

She crossed the rutted road. “This late? You said you’d be done by sunset.”

“Gotta work when we’ve got work and I got interrupted.”

“Interrupted? So you have to feed the fire again?”

“Pump it up, leastways. Either that or start cold tomorrow, and that would be a sorry waste of fuel.”

...and COMING MARCH 2019!

    The title got to me. I do not see but I do enjoy reading books where the women come together by sewing, quilting or knitting. I just love the connection the women have with each other.
