Publisher's Description

Can runaway Libby Cantrell finally get a new start?
 
Libby Cantrell’s life has gone from bad to worse since her mother’s death. After working in a brothel to support her abusive father, she sees no hope for her future until one cold winter night when she finds the courage to escape.
 
When she collapses in Portersfield, Texas, exhausted, ill, and hungry, Sheriff Cory Muldoon finds her and takes her to the doctor. Against Cory’s better judgment, Seth and Erin Winston take her in and offer her a job as a nanny for their young son. As a minister, Seth sees it as his duty to take care of her. As a deputy, Cory needs to know the truth about her even as he is attracted to the waif of a young woman.

As Cory’s feelings for her grow and winter becomes spring, will he be able to accept her as she is now and truly forget and forgive her sordid past?

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Seasons of the Heart series. I was anxious to read #4 in the series and was captivated by the stories. Though each book is a self contained story that captivates you, I would recommend starting at #1.

    Enjoyable

    Libby Cantrell is on the run,and never wants to go back to her home in Louisiana. Since the death of her mother, her pa had made her work as a prostitute in the local saloon, and when she rebelled he would beat her into submission. She decides her only hope is to run so far away that he wont be able to find her. She makes it to Portersfield, Texas where she is found in an alleyway by Sheriff Cory Muldoon. When he asks for her name she hesitates, not wanting to lie and start out on the wrong foot, but fearful if she gives her real name her pa will find her, she decides to use the last name Bradley, her mother's maiden name. Will she find a new life in Portersfield,or will her pa find her? What will the people of Portersfield think of her if they ever find out about her past?

    It's February 1891 in Portersfield ,Texas, and seems to be one of the coldest nights so far that winter. As Deputy Cory Muldoon is doing a walk thru of the alleys in town he finds what he first believes is a pile of garbage turns out to be a young lady,and she tells him her name is Libby Bradley. Cory is suspicious of her, and is determined to figure out just who she is. When he starts having feelings for her though what will he do?

    Libby was such an easy character to like, she was running from a past that wasn't her choice. It was easy to understand why she would question God's love.I thought the author did an amazing job of allowing her character to flourish as the story progressed. As a fan of historical inspiration I feel like Martha Rogers writes top notch stories. She always draws me back in time, provided a rich story, and characters that touch the heart.

    While "Spring Hope" is the fourth and final book in the Seasons of the Heart series it can easily be read as a stand alone work. Although if your like me your going to want to read all four stories. Fans of historical fiction that blends together a bit of romance as well as a positive inspirational message will certainly want to check out this book.

    Libby is running scared. Her life changed the day her mom died. Suddenly she was thrust into the position of woman-of-the-house, cooking and cleaning for her dad. As she grows older, and her body begins to change into that of a young woman, her dad decides to use her to make money, which he quickly gambles away. Libby finally breaks free, disappearing just as winter is on its last leg. She finds herself in a small town, being rescued by a kind stranger. Little does she know that stranger doesn't want her around.

    Cody knows her type. The loose women that flock at the local saloon are always asking for trouble, in his book. He doesn't need to know anything else about her. He just wants her gone, and the other prostitutes in the town he helps care for. As deputy, he feels responsible for this town, and its inhabitants. Little does he know how much he should have stopped to listen, instead of judging her first.

    I enjoyed reading, and watching the relationship develop between theses two unsuspecting people. With God's grace and mercy evident throughout the story, this book will keep you hooked, looking forward to the "happily ever after".

    Libby Cantrell has had a hard life ever since her mother's death four years ago. This left her with a grieving father that turned to alcohol and gambling. Then when he lost his job he put Libby to work in a saloon. She refused him and he beat her after that the beatings kept coming. One night he brought a man home and made her service the stranger. This was her life now selling her body and being abused. She tries to build up her courage to escape her father and the abuse. She can't bear for another man to ever touch her ever again.

    Deputy Sheriff Cory Muldoon makes his night rounds in Porterfield, Texas and as he enters the alley he finds a young women wrapped in a quilt unconscious and burning up with fever. He carries her straight to Doc Jensen's infirmary. The doc not only finds she has a high fever and a bad cough, he also finds signs of being abuse with new marks and old scars from past beatings. The bruises are not reported to Deputy Muldoon but he could tell she was scared and running from something. He was determined to find out who she was and what she was running from.

    Libby told the Doctor her name was Elizabeth Bradley because she did not trust anyone to know her real name for fear of her father finding her. Cory's sister was a nurse for the Doctor and came up with a plan to take Elizabeth to her parent's ranch, that way if someone came looing for her she would be well protected. Besides a stranger would not know to look for her on the ranch. Cory was not happy with this idea but how could he convince his mother and sister to abandon this plan. Will the people of Porterfield protect her once they find out who and what she really is or will they make her leave their town?

    As bad as Cory wants to protect her he just seems to not trust her. But why does he keep thinking about her? Could he really be developing feeling for this young woman?

    Women did not have many rights back in these days. They were at the mercy of their husbands and fathers. If they were beaten people would turn their heads. There were no laws against abuse. But some would do whatever they could to stop the abuse. There were also limited jobs available for women and they were looked down on if they tried to become doctors, nurses or lawyers.

    The people of Porterfield had faith in God and went all out to disciple and minister to one and all without prejudice and if anyone tried to stop them they better change their mind real quick because the whole town will be praying for them.

    From book one to book four the books just kept getting better. I enjoyed reading about the growth of Porterfield, Texas and also the spiritual growth of the community. I admired the bravery and fortitude of the women especially Ada Muldoon, Aunt Mae and let's not forget Kate Muldoon.

    I am ready to read more of Martha Roger's books. I hope there will be a book five in this series.

    This review was written for Spring Hope, Seasons of the Heart Series #4.
    Another great book by Martha Rogers and her Seasons of The Heart Series. Once started I didn't want to leave Portersfield, TX. This is a return visit for me, and was great to be reaquainted with old friends. Although this is a stand alone book, I recommend reading the other three, as they are equally good.

    We begin our journey as Libby Cantrell has literally dropped into this caring town. Sheriff Cory Muldoon stumbles by the alley, and see an unattended horse, and a bundle, which turns out to be a very ill Libby.

    We find out she is fleeing her horrible father. Only because of what he forced her to do, she is ashamed...so she doesn't give her real name or what she is fleeing.

    You see Cory start to have feeling, and his family, especially his Mom and sister's begin to love her. Cory though makes remarks about the woman working in a brothel, and Libby knows nothing can come of her feeling for him.

    I love the faith of these people, and Cory is one who is struggling along with Libby. They both have to learn how to trust God and find forgiveness. I myself would have a heard time forgiving her father, what a horrible man, how could he do what he did to his child??

    Love the ending of this book, and you will have to read it to find out if any or all are able to forgive? Enjoy a return visit with this great family, and town.

    I was given a copy of this book by the Publisher Realms, and was not required to give a positive review.
