About the Book:

A Stirring Story of Love and Faith and America's Great Promise

When her mother suffers a stroke, medical student Deirdre O'Leary makes the difficult choice to put her career on hold to care for her. Dr. Matthew Clayborne is renowned for his amazing results with patients, but when Deirdre approaches him about helping her mother, she finds him challenging and surly. Deirdre has had enough of complicated men in her life. After her fiancé left her, she vowed never to give a man that kind of power again.

Widower Dr. Matthew Clayborne is devoted to two things: his work with wounded soldiers and his four-year-old daughter, Phoebe. He won't abandon either of these priorities to care for one older woman. However, when Phoebe suffers a health scare, they're offered respite at the Irish Meadows farm, where his daughter's weakened lungs can recover--but only if he cares for Mrs. O'Leary.

Matthew intends to hate Irish Meadows, yet he immediately feels at home, and soon both Mrs. O'Leary and Phoebe are showing improvement. But since he has no intention of leaving his life up north forever, and Deirdre has sworn off marriage in favor of her career, how will they deal with the undeniable attraction between them?

My Review:

The third book of the Courage to Dream series features grown up Deirdre and Connor O'Leary as they make their way in the world.  It was very comfortable to spend time with the O'Leary family for the wonderful conclusion to this series.  A reader could easily read this book as a stand-alone, but it was richer for me, having "known" the family.

There were many joys, sorrows, and surprises to experience throughout this book.  I highly recommend it!  Fans of historical romance will certainly enjoy reading this book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
