Though she hopes for a quiet, uncomplicated life for herself, Dorothy Clark wants nothing more than to stir others up. Specifically, she dreams of writing something that will challenge people as much as Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin seems to have. But in 1850s Mesquite Springs, there are few opportunities for writers--until newspaperman Brandon Holloway arrives, that is.My Rating:
Brandon Holloway has seen the disastrous effects of challenging others and has no intention of repeating that mistake. Instead of following his dreams, he's committed to making a new--and completely uncontroversial--start in the Hill Country.
As Dorothy's involvement in the fledgling newspaper grows from convenient to essential, the same change seems to be happening in Brandon's heart. But before romance can bloom, Dorothy and Brandon must work together to discover who's determined to divide the town and destroy Brandon's livelihood.
With this second novel in the Mesquite Springs series, bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites you to discover the healing power of truth.
Having had the chance to read and review the first book, Out of the Embers, I was excited to get my hands on a copy of the companion sequel and see what Amanda Cabot had in store. This was just a good as the first book. This book we follow Wyatt's little sister Dorothy and her love interest, Brandon. The town of Mesquite Springs is pretty interesting. Dorothy and Brandon had good chemistry and also seemed to work well together. I enjoyed the talk of forgiveness -- any book that has a solid "talk" on forgiveness is great to me. I loved that this did have a bit more faith aspects than the first book which was helpful in my rating this.
Overall, I look forward to the next book that Amanda Cabot writes and seeing how she weaves faith into historical fiction novels.
