Here's the new novel I have to tell you about today. It's Her Patchwork Family, a historical romance by Lyn Cote. It's the 2nd in Gabriel Sisters series, which is described as: "In the wake of the Civil War, three women combat injustice and find true love."
Here's a bit more about it:
Christmas is for Families…
And Felicity Gabriel intends to build a family right away! When she inherits a mansion, she decides to turn it into a home for orphans.
But her first charges test her resolve. One child is a thief, suspicious of her kindness. The other is the local judge's traumatized daughter. Broken by war, Judge Tyrone Hawkins is devastated when his little girl runs from him to Felicity. But Felicity's courage despite the town's scorn for her orphanage and her caring way with his daughter restore his lost faith. Now he wonders if they all can find the family they seek…just in time for Christmas.
