Summer of Promise by Amanda Cabot
Amanda Cabot is a popular speaker and the author of numerous novels. She’s an avid traveler who finds inspiration for new stories in her travels and enjoys sharing new parts of the country with her readers. A former Easterner, she now lives in Wyoming.
From the book’s back cover
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?
Amanda Cabot writes compelling novels. This one is no exception. Her characters are strong, including: Abigail Harding who is traveling from Vermont to Fort Laramie, Wyoming; her sister Charlotte who needs Abigail; soldiers at the Fort; and Leah, a “lady of the night,” whom Abigail befriends. At summer’s end will Abigail return to Vermont as planned, or be convinced to stay? Cabot’s story is fast moving with enough suspense to keep readers turning pages.
