Waiting for Morning - Fiction, Historical

Waiting for Morning – The Brides of Last Chance Ranch #2
By Margaret Brownley

Molly Hatfield is a young woman determined to make a better life for herself and her invalid brother, Donny.  Orphaned then driven from their Colorado home by a fire, Molly takes Donny to the Arizona desert in answer to an advertisement for an heiress wanted to run a cattle ranch.  The ranch owner, Miss Walker, has one major stipulation for the candidates – they must agree to never marry.  Molly sees no issue in fulfilling this requirement since every time a man finds out she has a brother in a wheelchair they run the opposite way.  Dr. Caleb Fairbanks is starting his medical practice in the town nearest the ranch.  He meets Molly on his first house call to the ranch.  They have an instant chemistry.  Dr. Fairbanks also thinks he can help Donny become more independent.  Can the three of them find their hearts desire in the Arizona desert?

I really enjoyed reading this book.  The story was paced well and engaging.  The characters are well developed and loveable.  Molly struggles throughout the book with her belief that God has abandoned her. The author paints a clear picture of how easily Christians can judge others and drive them away from the very person they need – Christ.  May we all be reminded to love first, as Christ loved us.  Overall I enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to the next installment in the series.  Grade: A – good read.

I received a free e-book  from the publisher via in exchange for my honest review.
