Book Review: Summer of Promise

Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont, Abigail Harding cannot dismiss her concerns over her older sister. Charlotte's letters have been uncharacteristically melancholy, and her claims that nothing is wrong ring false, so Abigail heads west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. When her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger,
Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.

Abigail plans to marry when she returns to Vermont, just as soon as she attends to her sister. As the summer passes, she finds herself drawn to this rugged land and to a certain soldier determined to persuade her to stay. When summer ends, will she go back East, or will she find her heart's true home?

This was a fun book!  A little love, a little mystery, and a very troublesome puppy.  Abigail has the feeling that her sister is not well, but when she travels to Wyoming to visit her, Abigail has no idea what she's getting herself into.  To her, the land is BORING, she's only there for a few weeks, because after all, she has Woodrow waiting for her back home.  If only she new.

Abigail is one spunky lady, and I think you'll enjoy her story as much as I did!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing.

  1. Lulu -- I'm so glad you enjoyed Summer of Promise! Wasn't Puddles fun? I laughed every time I wrote about him ...except for that one scene, of course.


Love your comments, thanks for stopping by!
