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!

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)

As he cut across the road, temptation pulled him in the other direction. He had to stop himself from turning right and walking straight down to Hattie’s place, because it wasn’t concern for Chickie that drew his interest.

It was the wish to see what Macy was up to, how she was getting on, and wouldn’t that put him in a fine pickle? He’d been warding off invites and potlucks from the first day he rode into town nearly three years back. The minute women realized he was a widowed father, they set their caps to make things right, and by ‘right’ they meant a mother for his child and a wife for him.

He’d had no interest, then.

Now his awareness was piqued, but he made a firm turn to the left and headed for the church. If there was something to come from this attraction, it would come in its own time. Work, first.

An hour later he’d written one foolish sentence five different ways, and couldn’t think of anything other than the kind way Macy took charge of Chickie the previous day. And there was the matter of her smile, soft and perfect. The sincerity of her words and the directness of her gaze.

He balled up the latest sheet of paper, scolded his foolish extravagance, and rolled his desk chair toward the window. Bright sun shone down on the growing town, the summer heat moving the air in thick waves.

    I have been reading Ruth’s books for several years and have never been disappointed. The West was a good place for fresh starts and second chances. These stories sound like they will present some good stories of just that.
    I hope the release goes well.
