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.
A Borrowed Dream had touches of suspense, mystery, romance, love of family, and enough twists that kept me interested page after page. I have to admit I had my suspicions on some of it but the Amanda Cabot wowed me with some of the outcomes I never would have imagined.
There were lessons to be learned on forgiveness and understanding but the characters never wavered for their Love of God and that was so uplifting.
This book is a part of a series but it can stand alone.
A great read!
