    Kurzbeschreibung

    "Summer of Promise is an engrossing story of love and adventure on the Wyoming frontier that is sure to capture your heart! Get ready for a charming tale of life on an Army post woven into an engaging, fast-paced, heartwarming read!"--Kathleen Morgan, author, A Heart Divided and A Love Forbidden

    Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont, Abigail Harding cannot dismiss her concerns over her older sister. Charlotte's letters have been uncharacteristically melancholy, and her claims that nothing is wrong ring false, so Abigail heads west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. When her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger, Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.

    Abigail plans to marry when she returns to Vermont, just as soon as she attends to her sister. As the summer passes, she finds herself drawn to this rugged land and to a certain soldier determined to persuade her to stay. When summer ends, will she go back East, or will she find her heart's true home?

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Bibliophile Support Group Review 3. Februar 2012
    Von Connie & Angie L - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Summer of Promise is an inspirational historical romance by Amanda Cabot.

    It's June 1885 and Abigail Harding is concerned about her sister, Charlotte. Charlotte's letters have grown increasingly downhearted and Abigail is sure there's something wrong - though Charlotte never mentions anything. Not that she would.

    Since Abigail has the summer off from the girl's school she teaches at in her beloved Vermont, she decides to travel to Fort Laramie, Wyoming where her sister lives with her enlisted husband to spend some time with her and get to the bottom of whatever's going on.

    On the monotonous travel by stagecoach to the fort, their stagecoach is attacked by armed robbers - which is how Abigail meets Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, a fellow passenger. He quite easily diffuses the situation with a well-placed bullet and back to traveling they go.

    Despite being rattled by the incident, Abigail is even more disturbed when she reaches her sister and finds her thinner and in ill health. She knows she made the right decision visiting.

    Yet Abigail knows she won't stay forever - Vermont is her home, and she plans to marry a fellow teacher when she returns - though nothing has been set in stone yet. But as the summer continues she begins to see the beauty of Wyoming, with the help of Lieutenant Bowles who quickly becomes a good friend.

    She begins to wonder... will she return to Vermont? Or is her heart finding a home elsewhere?

    That might sound a tad cheesy, but stay with me here. :)

    Summer of Promise is actually a very good novel - especially for an inspirational historical romance fan. It has a lovely, visual Wyoming landscape and a likable, independent heroine in Abigail who is dealing with an unhappy, worrisomely pregnant sister and her not-so-welcoming, possibly secretive husband, giving lots of good family drama which is both interesting and tender.

    Ethan, as our male lead, also has a good chunk of character development and investment potential. The subplot dealing with his profession of finding the numerous deserters and traitors is actually quite absorbing and twisty, creating a novel long mystery that I enjoyed.

    Though I wasn't head over heels with Summer of Promise, I was pleasantly and gently swept away by the time period detail and burgeoning feelings between the leads. The biggest moment for me, though, was when Ethan had his epiphany about God (no details here!) and all the circumstances surrounding it. It was truly touching and emotionally beautiful - gave me chills!

    I did correctly guess who the sought-after traitor amongst them was quite a bit earlier than the characters, but that only bothered me mildly. The outcome did end up being surprising, despite my seeing clues all along. It ended up being a great reveal. I only wish the end of the book hadn't felt so hasty and rushed. Of course, that's just how it felt to me.

    Summer of Promise was easy to read, fast-paced, and very charming - though I'm not jumping up and down over it personally, I am definitely interested in continuing with the series (of which it looks like there'll be two more books) as I did have fun reading it and found it to have many merits.

    Don't know if this is necessarily a novel for non-fans of the genre though. From my point of view, I'd recommend it to all y'all who are already interested in some good historical romance with a Christian heroine.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen A great beginning to a new series! 4. Februar 2012
    Von Booklover2905 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Well I want to begin with good news and bad news. The good news is that I loved, loved, loved this book and the bad news is I have to wait over a year for book 2 in the series. This is Amanda Cabot's newest book and is the beginning of the Westward Winds series. Every since I finished reading her first series, Texas Dreams I was ready to read more from her, this book did not disappoint at all and I am so blessed to have stumbled across this great author. Summer of Promise was so much fun to read it was full of twists, suspense, romance and adventure. This book kept me turning the pages and when I thought I had found a place to stop something exciting would happen. I loved Abigail the way she grew to love Wyoming, not just the people but the land. If I was in her shoes I think I would have responded the same way. Abigail is a kind and loving person that truly put others first in her life and also kept the story alive. This is a book you just have to read, it is that good. I give this book a solid 5 stars and know that it will have a place on bookshelf for years to come. Great job Amanda Cabot!!!!

    *I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Another romance with no romance 31. Oktober 2013
    Von Ekaterin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I started this book with high hopes. The writing was good, the characters were interesting, and the storyline held promise, but then it just got...long. Some Romances suffer from not enough other story to go along with the relationship story. That was certainly not the problem here. If anything there are too many storylines, some of which never resolve, and while there is certainly a lot of inner dialogue about the attraction blossoming between Ethan and Abigail, Cabot drags their story out to nearly the very last page to declare their love for each other, and then doesn't even give us a kiss. When I reached the end (and had stayed up late to do it), I said, "That's it? You've got to be kidding me!" So unsatisfying and abrupt.

    This book also suffered from a few things that really get under my skin:
    1) dreams that are somehow real historical revelations
    2) that "feeling" that someone you care about is in terrible danger
    3) a sure knowledge that someone has died because they "just knew."
    4) unrealistic villains--motivations to kill a friend and officer in the army completely jump the shark
    5) A villainous plan that is totally ridiculous and would implicate the villain as the instigator of the crime to any thinking person.

    All in all, a very slow moving book with very little payoff.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Great Setting...Love Fort Laramie 28. Januar 2014
    Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I purchased this book at Fort Laramie National Historic Site, where Ms. Cabot was autographing copies of the book. I was so excited to read it, and it took me almost two years (I purchased it when my twins were one...).

    First off, I have to say it is obvious Ms. Cabot is truly familiar with the landscape of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Fort Laramie. The descriptions were dot on, and I could truly visualize where exactly the stage was travelling from Cheyenne to Fort Laramie.

    Second, she has done an AMAZING job of recreating Fort Laramie in this book. Having been to the Fort many many times, I could see the buildings that I have walked through and I could see the buildings that are partially standing (or long gone) in all their glory. I could see the 4th of July celebration in the parade grounds like I was actually standing there. VERY WELL DONE!

    The characters were ok. The story line was ok. I've mentioned in several other reviews that the plot was the same in several books...this is another one that fit that criteria.

    Great book though, and worth the read.

    2.0 von 5 Sternen Come to Jesus via dog? 31. Mai 2012
    Von mark'smarks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I have read other Amanda Cabot books so I was excited she released a new one. However, my joy quickly faded as I simply tried to enjoy the book. The characters were never really developed. Everything felt predictable and surface. I enjoy light fiction but I should at least have to guess for a few moments who the bad people are and maybe feel a bit nervous the characters cannot be together. This book just felt like it went no where and took a long time to get there. I was especially disappointed that the hero accepts Christ in his life because a dog is poisoned. I like dogs, but this man is a soldier. It just seemed stupid (sorry I do not have a fancier word.) This book has great reviews...not sure what I missed.
