Will God give Katie rest as she and the family pray for their enemies? Can she stand strong in her faith when fear overwhelms her? ~More Than She Dreamt by Sandy Faye Mauck~
About the Book:
It was more than she dreamt. But as the romance began to bud, she felt the thorns of a heartless beauty rise to tear it apart. Young widow, Katie Jensen, endures patiently under her oppressive uncle in desolate Arizona Territory. She tries to keep her promise to her dead aunt to be a witness and take care of her uncle but when his tirades grow worse, she gathers her two precious little ones and runs. Making their way to an unknown land, they come to the town of White Rock, which is strangely like the place in the dreams Katie has been having. They are welcomed into the cottage of a kindly grandmother who takes in borders. When Danny, the older woman’s grandson, comes home, he finds surprises in store: a crisis, a beautiful young woman, and her adorable children who bring laughter and life into all their weary souls. Katie is filled with hope when an unexpected romance sparks but there is a vindictive raven-haired beauty and an old enemy conspiring to put it out—permanently.
My Thoughts: When Katie married the man who would take her away from high society and give her a wonderful new and exciting life.. she never dreamt that her life was going to become so boring and so hard! From mining camp to mining camp until her husband died in a mine collapse was hard but the misery just seemed to intensify when she moved to Arizona to live with an Aunt and Uncle. Now Katie dreamt of escaping mean, oppressive Uncle Tyler. When Katie receives a letter from her sister with a few dollars enclosed, she takes it and escapes. The train will take them as far as White Rock, California. Her new life will start there and with the help of the Lord and a mysterious benefactor. I found this to be such a wonderful story of faith, love and healing. I really loved these characters and would definitely recommend this as a faith filled, loving family story that will touch your heart.
