Love's Fatithful Promise #3, in the Courage to Dream series, by Susan Anne Mason

Dr. Matthew Clayborn living in Totonto who is a widower devoted to his four year old daughter Phoebe and his work with wounded soldiers. Deirdre O'Leary is a fiery New Yorker who asks him to use his skills to help her injured mother.  He does not want to disregard his priorities in order to care for her.  When his daughter has a health scare and needs downtime to get well, Deirdre offers a trade for them to escape to her family's farm, if he will care for Mrs. O'Leary.  For his daughter's sake, he agrees to stay as short a time as necessary.  

The stay at Irish Meadows does wonders for Phoebe as she begins to flourish.  Matthew finds himself drawn to the O'Leary's, especially Deirdre.  He has no intention of leaving his life in Toronto and she favors her career over marriage.  How will they deal with this undeniable attraction between them?

Publisher's Description

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?

    Deirdre is a medical student on her way to becoming a doctor when her mother's stroke takes her home. Her dad hates to ask her to leave school, but Deirdre is the best person in the family to take care of her mother. When a family friend hears about the stroke he recommends a Dr. Clayborne who has experienced great results in his work with paralyzed patients. After working for years with war veterans he hopes to expand his practice to include stroke victims. Deirdre just needs to convince him that leaving the country and his practice for a short time to help her mother is the right choice.

    This book had pros and cons for me. The pros were the double story line. I thought having the small story of the main characters brother added depth and an interesting element. I actually liked the story line for that one better than the main one. I also liked the visual that the author created for the reader. She did a great job of making the story come alive, scenery wise, without bogging the reader down with too many unneeded details. All of the characters seemed well developed and had depth.

    The cons for me was the flat places in the plot, the extensive drama and angst that the main characters kept going through repeatedly, and the weak spots that occasionally appeared in what I considered the "faith element" of the story. I often felt like I was reading a regular novel instead of a Christian one.

    Overall, this was an interesting story and won't stop me from picking up another book by this author, but it wasn't a favorite.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions expressed are my own.

    This is the third book in the Courage to Dream series. I love every book that is set at Irish Meadows. Deirdre wants to become a doctor and Mathew is a doctor. He has a new therapy to help people with strokes and other health issues. Deirdre and her family learn of him when their other suffers a bad stroke. Deirdre needs to leave her schooling to become a doctor to help her mother. She loses a whole semester. She must work closely with Mathew to learn his techniques so he can move back to Toronto with his daughter. I laughed and cried during this book. This is a wonderful historical romance. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.

    Loves Faithful Promise is Book 3 in the Courage to Dream series, and you will not be disappointed at all, it is an awesome addition to the first two books, and if your like me, when it is ended you will be wanting more!

    This is Deidre OLearys story the nurse who wants desperately to become a doctor, and at the early part of the twenty-century it was a very difficult task. This story begins with her mother having a stroke and her desire to get her the best possible help, and when Dr. Matthew Clayborn is located in Toronto Canada, she is sent on a mission to convince him to come to help. So the paths of these two individuals are set into motion, and their fate rests within them, and all that love them.

    Deidre with her dreams, and Matthew with his feeling of failure, and a loveless marriage behind him, but his little daughter may just be the answer to all that is going on between them.

    There is also a new hired hand on the ranch, and another member of the family is about to open their own doors.

    A great read, and the only bad part was coming to the end and turning the last page.

    I received this book through Net Galley and Bethany House Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review

    Have you ever read a story that you wanted to read as slow as possible to savor every word? I felt that way with this story. I absolutely loved the story of Deirdre and Matthew. I will miss the OLeary family, but the ending was pretty satisfying. I highly recommend this book! (Full review at my website)

    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 fianc left her, she vowed never to give a man that kind of power again.

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.

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?

    This is the third book in the Courage to Dream series. I have only read this book and found it to be a stand alone book. That being said I would love to read the first two books to read the stories of Deirdre's siblings.

    Deirdre had to leave medical school to tend her mother since her mother's stroke. This was a very difficult decision for her as women in medical school was unheard of in that day and age. If she doesn't return soon, she will forfeit her place at the school. Matthew doesn't want to like anything about Irish Meadows and especially Deirdre. He vowed never to get married again. Matthew's daughter blossoms at Irish Meadows. He can't deny Phoebe's health has greatly improved or his growing attraction to Deirdre.

    I would recommend this book to all ages. I was given this book by the publisher for a honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
