I’m glad I won The Patchwork Bride from a Goodreads giveaway. This is a Runaway Bride meets the West kind of story. When granddaughter (June) tells her grandmother (Ellen) that she’s not sure she wants to marry her fiancé, Ellen tells her a story of a woman named Nell from the late 1800s. Nell was a runaway bride, so-to-speak, who bailed on two marriages…
This is a touching story that deals with the heartbreaks and other lessons learned in searching for true love.

The Patchwork Bride is a page-turning historical romance following one woman in her quest to find love without losing herself. At the same time, it is also the story of a grandmother trying to help her granddaughter through an emotional struggle about marriage itself.

Sadly this was a DNF for me. After trying several times to get into it I decided that this book just wasn't for me. I found it to be a bit boring to me and the stories not really very believable. Since I did not finish it, I will not give it a star rating as that wouldn't be fair to the author, there may be a great ending that I just couldn't get to.
I received an ARC of this novel from NetGalley.
This was very slow and didn't hold my interest. I also didn't like the main character. She made some poor decisions. Although, this would have been a short story if she had gotten it right from the start. Then I may have enjoyed it.
Ellen is finishing a quilt for her granddaughter the bride-t0-be when her granddaughter shows up saying the wedding is off. Ellen tells her a story of Nell a woman who left 3 men she was going to marry. A good twist to the wedding stories and a really good twist at the end.
The Patchwork Bride
Dallas’s latest is a step back in time, a touching tale about love, loss and second chances. The novel is suitably paced moving adroitly between the mid twentieth and late nineteenth centuries with vivid depictions that will invite the reader right into the tale and period perfect dialogue that will have them googling terms from a bygone era. The characters are intriguing and real especially Ellen and the twists and turns lead to some secrets being outed and a big ...more
Gentle, heart warming story.
