PATCHWORK FAMILY SEEKS HOME

B.D. Tharp reads from Patchwork Family, the sequel to her award-winning novel, Feisty Family Values. Watch the video below and learn why this intimate scene was difficult to write and  what happened to cause this novel about life, love, and family bonds to be searching for a publishing home.

ABOUT THE STORY

 PATCHWORK FAMILY  By B. D. Tharp

It’s been a year since Annabelle’s daughter died and she gained custody of her three grandchildren. The stress of the demands and changes to her life begin to affect her health. To make matters worse, Annabelle receives a call from the children’s dad, who disappeared a decade ago. As a result of the stressful conversation, Annabelle has a heart attack, which leaves her cousin Regina as areluctant caregiver to both Annabelle and the children.

The children’s father, who has been in jail, wants another chance with his children. Annabelle, Regina, and the kids struggle to let go of the past and take a chance on the future, no matter how uncertain it may be.

Regina considers the risks of a second marriage, while Annabelle, who has been dependent on her cousin for the roof over their heads, looks for a way to be financially independent at age sixty-seven.

Patchwork Family shows that the heart of a family is not always about genetics. It’s about family members and friends being there for each other, appreciating what you have, charting your own course and believing you are worthy of love.

Check below for Bonnie’s secret about Patchwork Family.

Bonnie Tharp was without an agent when she sold Feisty Family Values to Five Star, a Division of Gale/Cengage. The novel was published as a part of Five Star’s Expressions line. Five Star has since discontinued the Expressions line and no longer published women’s fiction, so Patchwork Family, the sequel to award-winning Feisty Family Values, is now looking for both an agent and a new publisher.
