Catherine becomes friends with the town’s mysterious newcomer and starts to wonder if dreams were worth while.
I would give this book 3-4 stars. I wish there was a way to do 3.5 stars. This is the 2nd book in the series but it can totally be read as a stand alone book. I really like the plot lines and character development was great. I wish there was a little more setting development at the beginning. I had a hard time seeing it in my head. The story started out a little slow for me but got better as the story progressed. I love how clean the story is. Loved the elements of forgiveness and dreams coming true when we wait on the Lord. It was great to learn some history in a fun story. Love learning like that. The author put a ton of time into research and it shows in the story. She weaves Christian themes into the story without making the reader feel overwhelmed by it. They are natural and add so much to the story even in their simplicity. The children add a lot to the story. I loved that storyline. I had a hard time with the word minions. I felt like that part of the story could have been better. It was a real turn off to see that word for some reason. Overall the story was sweet and well written.
It’s an easy clean read you will surely enjoy.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was in no way required to write a positive review.
