A Borrowed Dream

By Amanda Cabot, published by Revell, March 20, 2018, 353 pages.

The second installment of the Cimarron Creek series by Amanda Cabot features Catherine Whitfield, the town’s schoolteacher. Her mother has recently passed away, and Catherine harbors hate in her heart for the town doctor. She also struggles with giving up the dreams she had—dreams of traveling to France with her mother, dreams of a husband and children, and dreams of feeling at peace.

When Austin Goddard arrives in Cimarron Creek with his young daughter, he feels as if he’s finally arrived at the place of safety God has brought him to. At first, he’s sure that the powerful man who seeks him will never find him. As he settles into his life on the ranch, he worries about his young daughter, Hannah, who has retreated into near silence since their hasty flight from Philadelphia.

Austin and Catherine form a friendship over trying to help Hannah and Austin’s neighbor boy, Seth. Before long, their friendship blossoms in to something more—but can they hope to form a lasting relationship with both harboring secrets?

If you enjoy inspirational romance, you’ll enjoy this Texas tangle with just the right amounts of romance, inspiration, and suspense.

Sweet, Clean Romances

I’ve read a few other books by Amanda Cabot (Paper Roses, Summer of Promise, and With Autumn’s Return) and enjoyed them, too. The characters live out their Christianity and the reader never feels as if the author contrives the ‘inspirational’ part of the romance.
