Love's Faithful Promise Book Review

Enjoyed tea and toast while switching between
this wonderful novel & my daily Bible reading.

Love’s Faithful Promise –Courage to Dream Book #3
Susan Anne Mason

•°o•:*:•.LOVED IT.•:*:• o°•

Final installment does not disappoint. Again, extremely detailed and several characters with different points of view.
Matthew Clayborne carries heavy burdens from his past, failed marriage.  Now a widower raising a fragile young girl, he is desperate to provide for her, while not letting anyone in to break his heart again.  He splits his time between his daughter, and helping rehabilitate wounded soldiers with new physical therapy techniques.
Deirdre O’Leary, a young nurse, aspiring to one day become a pediatrician, has been sent by her father to convince the doctor to leave Canada and travel to Irish Meadows in New York, in order to help her mother who recently suffered a stroke.  She is bold and determined to persuade the stubborn doctor, or learn the techniques herself. 
There is another story that takes place between Jo, a stable hand, and Connor O’Leary set amongst the wonderful O’Leary horses.  It is a great story as well. It’s like reading two books in one. 
The relationship between the O’Leary parents and really the entire family is so endearing and enjoyable.  It’s a family you want to visit or be a part of.  There is a lot of kindness and love there.  There are also dangerous moments that send the heart rapidly beating, such as when young nephew get a little too adventurous.  And there is faith and prayer as well.  The weather is crisp and cool, until finally it snows, so I enjoyed reading this book in Autumn (-smile).
The cover of this book was another gorgeous picture that grabbed me instantly. The back shows Irish Meadows covered in snow tucked behind the leafless trees of winter.
