Dreams Rekindled by Amanda Cabot

I have read many books by Amanda Cabot.  I picked this up and was ready to revisit Mesquite Springs.  This is Book Two of the Mesquite Springs Series. The cover is beautiful and I can imagine being right there, taking in this beautiful sight. 

I have never been one to take a risk.  At least, I don't think I did.  By. Dorothy's standards, I am a major risk taker.   I have been married more than once.  Divorce and recovering from one can take some time.  It takes a while to trust again.  If ever.  To protect oneself from any additional pain, an invisible wall is put up. I know.  I didn't allow my past experience to stop me from loving again.  Thank goodness, as I married the love of my life at age 50.

Dorothy never divorced but she was afraid of being hurt.  No one intentionally enters a relationship wanting to be hurt.  Dorothy put up a wall.  She wasn't going to marry.  She was not going to allow anyone to come inside....to touch her heart.  Brandon was just the one to take the wall down.

The book also clearly deals with gossip and how it can injure individuals but also communities.  Mean and vicious gossip can destroy lives.  It spreads like a fire and it is difficult to extinguish.  It is relevant in today's world as well as in the 1850's.

I received the book for free from Revell to give a honest review.
