ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Miralee and her husband, Allen, live on 11 acres in Washington State. She loves to minister to women (as a certified Lay Counselor with the AACC) or through her writing, riding her horse, working in her flower beds and playing with her dogs—her 7 lb, long-haired Chihuahua, Lacey, spends a lot of time on her lap while Miralee is writing. Miralee speak at various women’s functions and has taught at writers’ conferences. She’s been writing since 2005, and her first book released in 2007. Since then, she’s had 10 more books release, both in women’s contemporary fiction and historical romance, and she’s had the honor of being a best-selling and award-winning author.
ABOUT THE BOOK
When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.
This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.

MY REVIEW-Miralee Ferrell is one of those authors who writes novels that live in your heart. Every book I have ever read by her just speaks to you and makes you feel things as you devour the story. And Dreaming on Daisies is no different. The Love Blossoms in Oregon series has probably been my favorite but I found the books she wrote for the Love Finds You line coming in a close second. This book here is number 3 in the Love Blossoms in Oregon series and it is a hard choice over who would be my favorite character. I personally love Wilma and Frances. If you have read the previous books you will recognize many of the people but these two women quickly grew to become favorites. One of the things that spoke to me in this story was the feeling of being loved. We never know how much the rebellion or coldness on the outside is a show, and all they really want is love. Needless to say, I don't want to give anything away, but this book is a must have!! Went on my keeper shelf with the others.
