Piecing Together a Love Story
The Patchwork Bride - Sandra Dallas
The Persian Pickle Club - Sandra Dallas

Ellen is getting older and wondering how long she and her husband, Ben, can stay on their beloved ranch, when her granddaughter, June, gets cold feet and runs from her wedding. Ellen is working on June’s wedding quilt, which contains pieces of the wedding dresses from the women of the family. As the two women sit together, Ellen tells June the stories of one woman, named Nell, and how it took her 3 tries to find the man she would marry. The story of Nell’s first beau, Buddy, is full of cowboy swagger, the second story, about James, is a bit of a shocker, and the story of predictable, solid Wade has a not-so-predictable twist in the end.

The strengths of this book are the depictions of the relationships between the women characters, and the easygoing voice the story is told in. Readers who liked The Persian Pickle Club (which is referred to in this story) are sure to enjoy this latest novel.

Country Girls
Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography - Laura Ingalls Wilder

This original manuscript which eventually became the entire Little House series is a pleasure to read. Annotated with interesting information, photos, and asides, this monster volume lets those bonnet strings fly.


If you've been reading this while the theme music from the TV series plays in your head, go get this book before little Carrie falls on her face. (Again)
