Review: Waiting For Morning by Margaret Brownley

null I LOVE this book so much I went and bought the first book in the series! Margaret Brownley is a newly discovered author for me but I love her writing. The way Molly takes care of her wheelchair-bound brother Donny is remarkable. Even though she feels guilt over his accident. Trying to learn how to run a ranch and care for her brother is a full-time job but Molly is determined to do both. Even more remarkable is the way Dr. Caleb Fairbanks treats her brother Donny. Where others stare and avoid him, Caleb takes a personal interest in Donny and helps him to become independent. All the while, he is drawn to Molly and the attraction they share is undeniable. Will Molly be able to uphold the famous “Clause” in the contract to become the new owner of the Last Chance Ranch?

I understood Donny on so many levels. The anguish of feeling trapped in a body that doesn’t want to “follow instructions” when given. Feeling as though no dreams are within your grasp. Mrs. Brownley used Donny’s character to show that, no matter your circumstances, anything is possible as long as you believe and never give up. Caleb treated Donny with respect and helped him to reach within himself to find inner strength. This book has a fantastic story mixed with a little humor and a beautiful ending. A MUST read!

Review: A Long Way Home by Dorothy Love

null When Libby Summerfield landed on the doorstep of Logan St. John, 8 months pregnant and a bullet wound to the shoulder, Logan’s world turned upside down. Logan, a trapper by trade with an old bear wound to his leg, thought he had nothing to offer Libby and baby Noel.

Libby, only wanted to get back to Boston and her family after the death of her previous husband. Landing on Logan St. John’s doorstep, soaked to the skin and bleeding, was not in her plans. But she was stranded in Dead Man’s Gulch, a rough and tumble mining town, where the miners drank, gambled and fought until dawn.

Will Libby’s and new baby Noel’s influence change the town and win Logan’s heart? Will Logan realize that even though he has nothing to offer Libby and Noel he has everything she could ever need?

I just loved this story. I cried and laughed and saw love through new eyes. Logan is a character to fall in love with and the rough and tumble miners tug at your heart strings. Margaret Brownley is a true writer in ever sense of the word. She has a talent for story telling that goes beyond the average. I highly recommend this book and the author!

I just finished reading “The Struggle” and I loved it. It was very aptly named because the characters in the book faced alot of struggles along the way. I laughed and cried with them. I felt like I was apart of their families. It was a story of unending love and forgiveness. The writing was excellent and I look forward to reading more of her books!

Review: Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley

null Kate Tenney has had a hard life but is on the road to overcoming her past by becoming a writer until her latest book is banned in Boston. She feels she has no choices left until she sees an add for an heiress to Last Chance Ranch in Cactus Patch, Arizona. The only stipulation is she can never marry. Kate is determined to learn ranching and fulfill her obligations until she meets Luke Adams, the town blacksmith. Luke is the hero of her books personified and Kates resolve begins to slip.

After reading “Waiting For Morning” I knew I had to read “Dawn Comes Early” and I was definitely not disappointed. This book is in a series but can be read as a “stand alone” book also. Margaret Brownley has such a way with words that you just can’t put her books down. She is definitely one of my favorite new artists! I highly recommend this book!
