“Stitched together with love, this is a story just waiting for your favorite reading chair. With her signature style and skill, Susan Wiggs delivers an intricate patchwork of old wounds and new beginnings, romance and the healing power of friendship, wrapped in a lovely little community that’s hiding a few secrets of its own.”
— Lisa Wingate, New York Times Bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

This book, y’all.

When I agreed to the tour, I was excited but a little wary of the subject matter. With complete open honesty, I have been on the victim end of domestic violence, as well as on the therapy side for women leaving and processing domestic violence.

The story isn’t one single story but’s beautiful and heart wrenching tapestry of many stories being told together, ultimately making the fabric of sisterhood that much stronger.

It’s a book of self discovery, of new paths, or homecomings, and growth and I think I read it at exactly the right time.

I love when writers are able to pull beauty into the deepest and darkest aspects of human relationships because we all need to see ourselves and those around us in clear light.

For those reasons, I am so unreasonably grateful for this opportunity coming my way.

If you haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, I highly recommend it. Though the subject matter is heavy, it still holds an incredible amount of sweetness.

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for including me on the tour!
