Lena Nelson Dooley
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Award-winning author, Lena Nelson Dooley, has more than 675,000 books in print. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers http://www.acfw.com/ and president of the local chapter, DFW Ready Writers. She’s also a member of Christian Authors Network, CROWN Fiction Marketing, and Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas.
Lena loves James, her children, grandchildren, and great grandson. She loves chocolate, cherries, chocolate-covered cherries, and spending time with friends. Travel is always on her horizon. Cruising, Galveston, the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Mexico. One day it will be Hawaii and Australia, but probably not the same year. Helping other authors become published really floats her boat, with fifteen signing their first book contract after her mentoring. Three of her books have been awarded the Carol Award silver pins from American Christian Fiction Writers and she has received the ACFW Mentor of the Year award at their national conference. The high point of her day is receiving feedback from her readers, especially people whose lives have been changed by her books. And she loves chocolate, especially dark chocolate.
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Angus McKenna was forced to give two of his daughters to families in the wagon train, he promised he'd never try to contact them. Catherine made no such pledge. But when she sets out to find her sisters, she doesn't go alone. Angus sends Collin with her. Will they discover the two women---and love?

MY REVIEW-This is a book I totally fell in love with. Mrs Dooley writes a novel that pulls you in and keeps you in. I was able to review the other two in this series and I would urge you to read them in order. This one can be read as a stand alone but you will not have the whole feel for the characters.
In this third installment, Lena really introduces you to Catherine and her father, Angus McKenna. I enjoyed the whole search and then Catherine getting to know Collin. They were a great couple and I loved their faults and yet how they strengthened each other. You will want tissues handy near the end. I don't want to spoil anything but this was a real tear jerker in parts. Loved this whole series!! And I can't wait to see what Lena has in store for her readers next!!
