I happily revisited the 1850s and prairie life through this second novel by Cynthia Roemer. Once again, the historical details and sweet message of God’s love captured my heart. The setting and characters charmed their way across the pages and before I knew it – before I was ready to say goodbye – I’d reached the beautiful ending. And what a sweet ending it was.
If you love historical romance, this is one story I encourage you to pick up. The hero and heroine spend a lot of time together on the page and their story is endearing, yet challenging. These two have some hard lessons to learn, but their strength and determination is admirable. They’ll undoubtedly inspire readers to take a second look at their own lives and see where they might also be lacking in faith.
There were several surprises and twists along the way, some of which brought tears to my eyes, I’ll warn you. But the author never missed an opportunity to weave hope and joy throughout the darker moments.
I also loved seeing familiar characters from book 1 and watching their stories continue. It was like visiting with old friends. Such an enjoyable read. Our hero and heroine are different people by story’s end and I’m guessing you will be too when you finish reading it. 🙂
I received a copy from the author. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
~ Beyond shattered dreams lies a realm of possibilities ~ Illinois prairie ~1855
Unsettled by the news that her estranged cousin and uncle are returning home after a year away, Charlotte Stanton goes to ready their cabin and finds a handsome stranger has taken up residence. Convinced he’s a squatter, she throws him off the property before learning his full identity. Little does she know, their paths were destined to cross again.
Quiet and ruggedly handsome, Chad Avery’s uncanny ability to see through Charlotte’s feisty exterior and expose her inner weaknesses both infuriates and intrigues her. When a tragic accident incites her family to move east, Charlotte stays behind in hopes of becoming better acquainted with the elusive cattleman. Yet Chad’s unwillingness to divulge his hidden past, along with his vow not to love again, threatens to keep them apart forever.
