True family is a patchwork....of love's surprising shapes.
A story about a man, a dog, and the two lost children who help everyone find their way.
Famous author Merit Brown moved to a secluded cabin in the woods after suffering tragic loss. Susie is the collie who showed up on his porch, badly injured. His only companion, she contentedly wears the patch he made for her damaged eye as they walk the path to the creek every morning before Merit quietly settles down to write.
Until the morning they find two abandoned children – a girl huddled by the creek bank who won’t speak, and a little boy hidden under bushes in the water and the mud, unconscious and nearly dead.
Suddenly Merit and Susie are back in the world of cruelties, and kindnesses. As they help Jonathan and Trish on a desperate search for home, the people of the southern mountain town of Wake Robin reach out, discovering within themselves the true meaning of family.
Burton paints powerful portraits of the good, and the bad, in a vivid novel that has the horror and suspense of a kidnapping, a rape, a murder, a suicide. But at its shining heart is a story of empowerment.
Patchwork Love radiates with warmth, hope, and what it means to find your brave. Courage – that’s the most important thing.
