Sometimes beautiful things come from odd pieces of fabric, and it doesn t matter if they re a little tattered. They still keep you warm. Just like family.
Annabelle Hubbard thinks she has good reason to be exhausted all the time: she s the caretaker for three good-hearted but challenging grandkids and a three-legged cat named Ms. Pickles, plus she feels awkward about settling like a charity case into her grandmother s home, now owned by her wealthy cousin Regina in Wichita, Kansas.
Regina and Annabelle have always been close, and Regina doesn t begrudge her beleaguered cousin one bit of help. Family is family! After all, Annabelle supports Regina s romance with silver-haired Wichita attorney Sam Duncan, who encourages Regina to believe in herself again after years with a cheating husband.
But Regina and Annabelle s kinship is put to the test when Annabelle s ex-con son-in-law shows up demanding to get to know his kids.
As Annabelle sets out on a healthy new lifestyle while accepting the romantic advances of a retired coach, Regina wrestles with Sam s marriage proposal, and the dramas of their quickly stitched-together family tug at the seams.
Will this patchwork family survive?
