This is book two in the Texas Dreams series, and although it is good as a stand alone book, I recommend you read book one first so you can get to know the town and background of many of the characters in book two. I didn't think I would enjoy book two as much as book one, but I found myself really enjoying the theme of this story, plus the main character, Zach Webster-he was a real jewel of a man.

The story starts with Priscilla Morton and her parents embarking on an "adventure" from Boston to the Texas Hill Country in 1856 to attend a wedding of a dear friend, who was, once upon a time, a part of their family. Before they reach their destination a heartbreaking tragedy occurs to this family. Zach Webster is the foreman at the ranch Priscilla Morton finally arrives at. She has had a devastating loss and needs lots of time and healing and Zach is the man who has patience and sensitivity to what Priscilla needs. They both have scars that need healing and it is a great love story, but more than that, it is a story of seeing how God can and will work out everything for good, even when it looks impossible.

There was alot of sorrow and heartbreak in this story; alot of deepfelt emotion to work through. You felt for these characters and I enjoyed the beautiful way this author brought healing and hope into these two peoples lifes. A story of a girl setting out to look for adventure and ended up finding love. A story of hope and of joy, knowing that even though we can't see the whole picture, God can and when we step back and see how He orchestrated it all, we see how He makes everything beautiful in His time. I look forward to the next book in this series.
