Historical Romance

From the publisher:
As a seed awaits the spring sunshine, so one young woman hopes for a brighter tomorrow

Harriet Kirk is certain that becoming the new schoolteacher in Ladreville, Texas, is just what she needs--a chance to put the past behind her and give her younger siblings a brighter tomorrow. What she didn't count on was the presence of handsome former Texas Ranger Lawrence Wood--or the way he affects her fragile heart. But can Harriet and Lawrence ever truly conquer the past in order to find happiness?

My Thoughts:
Harriet Kirk had the spark taken out of her soul by the tragic fire that took the lives of her parents. On her own, with her younger siblings to care for she decides it's time to move on. When given the opportunity she moves to Ladreville, Texas, with hopes of starting anew and leaving the past behind. What ensues is nothing short of a miracle. With God's help a handsome Texas Ranger turned mayor changes her life for the better.

In between the beautiful cover, which in my opinion is just perfect for this books Spring release, is a wonderful story of our heroine not only finding happiness but her family learning to open themselves up to the possibility of love without fear of loss. I enjoyed every bit of this book from Harriet learning to not only care for her family but herself with a pretty new dress (much to Lawrence's pleasure) to Ruth, her little sister, overcoming her shyness to find true love. Even Jake, Harriet's little brother learns that actions have consequences and grows up throughout this book. Each character just seemed to blossom under the love and care of the Ladreville townsfolk. It really goes to show how important good friendships can be in life.

I enjoyed Tomorrow's Garden. It's a good conclusion to the Texas Dreams series and very much makes me look forward to more from author Amanda Cabot.

  1. I am placing this on my book list for purchasing. I read that this is a conclusion to a series. does it read well as a stand alone?
