Book Review: A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham

 A Life Once Dreamed by [Rachel Fordham]

A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham

Six years ago, a shocking secret sent Agnes Pratt running in search of a new start. She found it in Penance, a rugged town of miners and lumberjacks in the Dakota Territory, where she became Miss Aggie, respected schoolteacher and confirmed old maid. But the past has a way of catching up with people.

When childhood friend and former sweetheart James Harris accepts a position as the town doctor, Aggie's pleasantly predictable days suddenly become anything but. James wants to know why Agnes left behind the life they had dreamed of creating for themselves--but he is the one person who can never know.

In the shadows of the Black Hills, can a healing light be shed on the past? Or will the secret Agnes can't seem to outrun destroy her chance at happiness?

Fan-favorite Rachel Fordham brings to life the dusty streets of an 1880s frontier town in this story that affirms where you come from matters far less than where you're going.

My thoughts

What a wonderful delightful read!  Such a good story and it flowed so well.  So many things happening it kept me turning the pages, love, a secret that had me guessing till almost the end, forgiveness, understanding, and even a pandemic!  

Aggie was my favorite character she was very kind, loving, and strong.  It was sad that she thought she should run away from her home and family.  She always opened her heart to others though and made sure to always care about their lives. She just never wanted to marry.  

I loved the friendships that were made and how the townspeople came together to help one another.   Just a good wholesome story and a great, great, read!
