Tomorrow's Garden By Amanda Cabot Book Review

I recently had the privilege of reading a book by Amanda Cabot called, Tomorrow's Garden. This is a sweet historical and was very good. Let me give you some info on it and then I can tell you what I thought about it.

Harriet Kirk is certain that becoming Ladreville's schoolteacher is just what she needs—a chance to put the past behind her and give her younger siblings a brighter tomorrow. What she didn't count on was the presence of handsome former Texas Ranger Lawrence Wood—or the way he slowly but surely claims her fragile heart. But can Harriet and Lawrence ever truly put the past behind them in order to find happiness?

MY THOUGHTS-I have read a couple other books by Amanda and thought they were very well done. She is a good author with a nice sweet writing style. In this book I think my favorite character was Lawrence. He is introduced in a previous book and throughout this one struggles with a private temptation but perseveres in the end. He is firm yet gentle. I had a very hard time liking Harriet. And I think it was personal because she wants to provide for her family and be independent. I see this happening but she carries it too far and I had a hard time with this. In the end everything worked out okay and she saw that she can't do everything by herself and I liked her more.

Overall this was a great book. If you want a nice easy read, this is your type of book. It is sweet and calming. The only thing I had a problem with is the cover. Harriet wears glasses in the book but not on the cover. I have noticed this a lot recently with book covers. Ladies with wrong hair color, etc. And this is nothing major but the cover of a book does give a type of what you think the person is like on the inside. Kind a picture of who they are, you know? But other than that, this was a beautiful story!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
Available April 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
