A TAILOR-MADE BRIDE
Witemeyer’s debut provides colorful descriptions, from the streets of a small town to each character she introduces. The novel’s theme of forgiveness and true love is woven throughout the story.
Seamstress Hannah Richards opens a dress shop in Coventry, Texas. Jericho Tucker has no interest in the town’s new dressmaker; any woman who makes her living exploiting the vanity of her customers is not for him. His opinion changes when he sees how she ministers to her neighbors, teaches the town’s children to sew and befriends his sister. Will past hurts keep him from opening up?
