By Amanda Cabot
The back cover summary:
Longing for adventure, Priscilla Morton leaves Boston
in 1856 and heads for the Texas Hill Country, never
dreaming that the adventure she seeks could have
heartbreaking consequences. Although attracted to her,
the ranch foreman, Zachary Webster knows Priscilla
deserves a cultured East Coast gentleman , not a
cowboy who’s haunted by memories of his mistakes.
When necessity draws them together, Priscilla and
Zach begin to forge a life filled with promise. But
then the past intrudes.
History comes alive in Scattered Petals, Amanda Cabot’s second book in the Texas Dreams series. It is apparent that Ms. Cabot did extensive research to make this historical romance period-related. And she succeeded. You are transposed to the year 1856 and you can visualize the beautiful hill country of Texas. You are there on the ranches and in the small towns.
Characters come alive in Scattered Petals. There is such a great depth of emotion, tragedy and pain, but also happiness and joy that you come to know these people as well as you know your own family.
Faith comes alive in Scattered Petals. Through the tragedy and pain comes questions and doubt. But faith in God overcomes all. Isn’t that a lesson we need to learn, sometimes?
I was so “into” the story line and characters, I truly hated to see the end of the book! I plan to order Paper Roses, the first book of the Texas Dream Series, and I’ll be sure to watch for the third book of the series.
