Courage to Dream Book 1
Susan Anne Mason
Brianna and Colleen are two sisters who don't get along. They, along with their family, live on a horse farm. Their father has aspirations for them marrying well. But both girls have different ideas for their future than their father. As each girl grows up and matures, she realizes what is important and what is worth fighting for.
The book reads like a family saga. The writing flows well and kept me moving through the story. The characters were more numerous than a typical historical romance. The book is laid out so that the main story lines are completed at the end of the book, but characters are set up for the next book in the series. The message of forgiveness and faith was woven throughout the story without it being preachy. I enjoyed the story, but the characters didn't grab me. I didn't fall in love. I will check out more by this author, since I really enjoyed her writing style. I'm just hoping the characters grab me more in the next book.
I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
