A Borrowed Dream: Cimarron Creek Trilogy #2 by Amanda Cabot has an expected publication date of March 20th, 2018 by Fleming H. Revell Company and is a historical romance. Synopsis: Catherine Whitfield is sure that she will never again be able to trust anyone in the medical profession after the town doctor’s excessive bleeding treatments killed her mother. Despite her loneliness and her broken heart, she carries bravely on as Cimarron Creek’s dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family, a life where dreams rarely come true.
Austin Goddard is a newcomer to Cimarron Creek. Posing as a rancher, he fled to Texas to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He’s managed to keep his past as a surgeon a secret. But when Catherine Whitfield captures his heart, he wonders how long he will be able to keep up the charade.
With a deft hand, Amanda Cabot teases out the strands of love, deception, and redemption in this charming tale of dreams deferred and hopes becoming reality.
About the author: With both parents avid readers, it’s no surprise that Amanda Cabot learned to read at an early age. From there it was only a small step to deciding to become a writer. Of course, deciding and becoming are two different things, as she soon discovered. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts at fiction were not published, but she did meet her goal of selling a novel by her thirtieth birthday. Since then she’s sold more than thirty novels under a variety of pseudonyms. When she’s not writing, Amanda enjoys sewing, cooking and – of course – reading.
My thoughts: A BORROWED DREAM is a beautifully written Christian historical romance novel. The second book in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy that can easily be read as a standalone novel. A lovely story that shares the story of two different individuals that are both thoughtful and caring. Cabot takes you away to another time and place where things are simple and easy going. The main theme of this remarkable story is centered around following God wholeheartedly. The story is full of forgiveness, love, family, and friendship. I highly recommend A BORROWED DREAM to anyone who loves historical romance. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
