Bonnie Tharp

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. The question is, will this family survive what life throws at them?

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 never been close, and in the past Regina has begrudged her beleaguered cousin any help. But, 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.
Will this patchwork family survive?

Savored Every Word!
“PATCHWORK FAMILY by Bonnie Tharp is an absolutely wonderful story about family, strength, and the power of love. I savored every single word! Dorothea Benton Frank, NY Times Best Selling author of THE LAST ORIGINAL WIFE”

You'll Feel the Love and the Pain of Family
Patchwork Family draws us into the tender, cranky, loving lives of the Morgans. Annabelle serves as the matriarch in this hodge-podge of a family, as guardian of her three grands, but out of the blue comes a jail-bird father unheard of in ten years. Then as health, accidents, bad luck and teenage calamity pile onto the group, stretching their union, one wonders what the future holds. Bonnie Tharp's depiction of the Morgans pulls the reader in to feel the pain and love that keeps family together as the world fights to wrench it apart. ~C. Hope Clark, author The Carolina Slade Mystery Series, Bell Bridge Books
