Waiting for Morning by Margaret Brownley

Disclaimer: I received this book to review from BookSneeze. All opinions are my own.

I have always enjoyed historical fiction. I find that there are many great books out there right now in this category. I don't mind, because I have enjoyed all the ones I read. I find that with historical fiction most authors tie factual events, times, places into the story. I learn things from the factual events and locations that deal with a certain time in history. The stories about love and friendship are a nice way to enjoy the story too. Waiting for Morning by Margaret Brownley is a story of a determined woman, trying to help her family, but love appears where she least expects it.

Waiting for Morning by Margaret Brownley
The Brides of Last Chance Ranch, #2
Molly Hatfield comes to Arizona Territory seeking stability and security. But living in Cactus Patch provides her with more than she ever dreamed.
There is nothing Molly wouldn’t do for her teenaged brother, Donny. Blaming herself for the accident that left him wheelchair bound, Molly has dedicated her life to his care. But in 1896, gainful employment for a woman is hard to come by. So when Molly learns that an eccentric rancher in Cactus Patch, Arizona, is looking for an heiress—someone to take over management of the ranch in exchange for future ownership—she jumps at the chance to provide a real home for her brother.
However, Molly didn’t bank on meeting Dr. Caleb Fairbanks, the town’s charming unmarried doctor. Caleb has a way with Molly that makes her nervous. But it’s how he is with her brother that really alarms her. Caleb sees past the wheelchair and genuinely likes Donny, but Molly fears he’s putting unrealistic ideas into her brother’s head. Falling in love with Caleb would threaten everything she’s worked for, even her brother’s future happiness. But it could be the very reason God brought her to Last Chance Ranch.

What I thought: This book is the second in a series by Margaret Brownley called The Brides of Last Chance Ranch. I reviewed the first in the series Dawn Comes Early. It was a great book. This is another good one that you will enjoy as well. Molly heads to Last Chance Ranch with a goal in mind. She wants to provide for her family. This seems like just the place to do it, but the local doctor starts making her question her feelings. Read along to find out if love is in the air for these two.

Where to buy: This is available in stores and online.
