The power of quilting to mend lives.
Lucy O’Connor aims to use her sewing skills to insure an independence her mother never knew. She’ll take the money she makes from creating quilts and buy cattle. But even head-strong Lucy can’t do it all herself. She enlists the help of her new neighbor, Trace Abernathy, to teach her the cattle business. Yankee veteran Trace only wants peace and quiet as he settles in his new home. Between the war and an unhappy marriage to a willful woman, he’s had enough of conflict. But his dealings with Lucy teach him there are still things worth fighting for. Patchwork Hearts, first published in 1999, was award-winning author Cindy Myers’ first novel (published under her maiden name, Cynthia Sterling.) This new ebook edition contains the complete text of the original.

About the Author
Cindi Myers became one of the most popular people in eighth grade when she and her best friend wrote a torried western romance. Fame was short-lived, however; her English teacher confiscated the manuscript and told her she'd do better to spend her time learning to properly conjugate a sentence. Cindi did so and has gone on to write more than 40 published novels.

Trace, and his friens were my favorites...including Uncle Nate. The H, O had to warm up to...I felt that she took wanting to be independent before getting married to another level. Yet, I could relate to making certain that you have a savings set aside before marriage. After that I warmed up to the Heroine. Anytime a book makes the reader seriously think about the actions of the characters and the book ends as an HEA story, it is an excllent story. ***vrnb***
This story has good bones, but the grammatical errors (missing words, wrong tenses, and even wrong names) dragged this story down. Proof reading should not be so difficult. Also, this story droned on too long with unnecessary fluff. 253 pages
The story might have been good if the editing had even been done! it was so bad OMG words missing and names changed. the dead wife's name was change in the middle of the book then changed back before the end. And you just want to slap the girl for being so dumb no girl push a man away in those times after she has sex with him. and then the end was flat just over. You don't find out what happened to her friend what happened to the bad guy. Does she have the bad guys baby??? Just leaves you hanging.
Well developed story. Little long in places.
