The Sewing Sisters Society (Second Chance Romance Collection #1) by Ruth Logan Herne -- Ruthy's Historical Fiction Reviewer Tour
About the Book
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?
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?
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?
About the Author
Multi-published, award-winning, bestselling author Ruth Logan Herne is living her dream of being a published author and having the time of her life doing it. Born to a poor family in Rochester, NY, Ruthy draws on her early years and her many years of dealing with today's young families and businesses to create beautiful, heartfelt small-town stories of faith, hope and love... while adopting her favorite non-Scripture quotes "Plenty of time for rest in the grave" (Ben Franklin) and "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." (Eleanor Roosevelt) and one can always depend on Yoda "There is no try. There is do or do not." Succinct... and true. :) She loves chatting with readers on facebook at Ruth Logan Herne or follow Ruthy on Twitter, visit her website or stop by Seekerville (www.seekerville.blogspot.com) or pop by the Yankee Belle Cafe where Ruthy and several lovely authors share recipes, facts, photos and just plain old life!

Ruth Logan Herne has written a sweet and inspiring collection of stories revolving around the little town of Second Chance in South Dakota and sweet matchmaker and how she influences three different women on their journeys west.

The Pastor Takes a Wife
The first novella in The Sewing Sisters’ Society shows how sometimes life can be rough and doesn’t always go the way it’s expected. But with a little push from a sweet and loving matchmaker, there’s redemption and a second chance at life with real love and a family.
Second Chance Christmas
The second novella in The Sewing Sisters’ Society is about fleeing from wrong accusations and going west to start over again. It’s about women’s suffrage, sewing, and the power of an unexpected love.
Second Chance at Love
The third novella in The Sewing Sisters’ Society is about overcoming the grief of losing loved ones, but not forgetting them. It’s about second chances in a new town and the possibility of a new love and a new family.
All three novellas are delightful, sweet, quick, and light reads that bring the town of Second Chance to life in a fun and charming way. Herne brings the stories to life in a way that readers can easily relate and thoroughly enjoy.
