Dreams Rekindled


Dreams Rekindled by Amanda Cabot takes readers to the town of Mesquite Springs MS. Dorothy Clark has big dreams of being a writer, hoping to change the world with her words.

Brandon Holloway, new to Mesquite Springs, brings the newspaper to the town, with hopes of making a difference after a harrowing experience in Xavier. In 1856 setting type took long hours after writing articles for the newspaper. Dorothy interviews townspeople and writes an article that gains Brandon's attention. But when an unusual stranger also makes his way into town, trouble seems to be brewing. 

I think Amanda Cabot's characters were well crafted, the story suspenseful, a little bit of romance and lessons of forgiveness. The friendship between Dorothy and Laura was genuine, as most female friends bounce off one another. And the mutt, Nutmeg, was certainly one of the heroes.

A great historical fiction novel, which can be read as a stand alone story.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
