    Abigail Harding leaves her home in Vermont to visit her sister in Wyoming. She doesn't know what to expect, but reading between the lines of her sister's letters, she's sure something is amiss. What she doesn't expect is to survive a stagecoach holdup or to meet a man who makes her forget about the one she left behind. Lieutenant Ethan Bowles is charged with finding the thief at Fort Laramie and stopping the army deserters who are holding up stagecoaches. Both jobs would be easier to do without the distraction of the lady from Vermont. Can the two work together to improve the situation at Fort Laramie for everyone, including themselves?

    Engaging characters with a bit of a mystery that will keep the reader guessing the "whodunit" until the end. Set in beautiful Wyoming in 1885, author Amanda Cabot brings Fort Laramie to life. Well worth the read!

    "Summer of Promise" is a Christian historical romance set in 1885 in Wyoming. It's the first in a series but can be read as a stand alone novel. The author vividly described the area and what fort life was like at this time without slowing the pacing. There's a mystery throughout about who is involved in the stage coach robberies. We're told enough to guess at the unknowns, but it's realistic that Ethan doesn't immediately suspect certain characters. We have more information than he does.

    The characters were complex, likable, and acted realistically. Ethan and Abigail fell in love slowly as they spent time together and got to know each other. They want to help each other, and their friendship develops into something deeper. Charlotte's part of the story deals with a husband and wife who love each other yet still have hurt feelings as certain choices create tensions.

    The Christian aspect is mostly in how the main characters treat those around them but also in where they look to understand what love truly is and to find forgiveness. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd highly recommend this enjoyable novel.

    At points I thought the relationship dragged on, but society today its different from the 1800's. Keeping that in mind it helped she the relationships develop. I was in suspence and couldnt wait to finish.

    This is a fun read. It starts off with a bang - literally! - with a stagecoach robbery, introducing Abigail to the perils of the untamed West. This new series is off to a great beginning with this book about Abigail. I love her care and concern for Charlotte. I could also relate to her character; how many times have I predetermined I am not going to like something, only to discover that either it's not what I expected at all or my tastes begin to change the more I learn about it? I look forward to reading more about Charlotte and a third sister in upcoming books.
