After reading Autumn Song several months ago, I was thrilled with the opportunity to review Martha Rogers' Winter Promise. Abigail joins her brother and friend in Texas with a plan to open a library for the town. Men and marriage are the furthest things from her mind, but she soon finds herself torn between two men.
Winter Promise was just as good as I hoped it would be. I was instantly transported back to the late 1800s and the town of Portersville, Texas. Ms. Rogers did a wonderful job of picking up the stories of characters from previous books in the series while also focusing on new characters. Although part of a series, the book can certainly stand alone if you haven't read the previous books.
I thought Abigail was a fantastic leading lady. I instantly connected with her, plus she's a librarian. What's not to like?! To be totally honest, I didn't like Dr. Elliott as much as I wanted to, but by the time secrets from his past were revealed, I understood him a lot better.
Anyone who loves historical fiction will appreciate the captivating stories in this series. I look forward to the conclusion later this year! [4 stars]
