Publisher's Description

A Family to Cherish 

Headstrong Tess Grimsby loves her new job caring for the children of a recently widowed man. But she never imagined that she'd fall for her handsome employer. Yet Spencer Abbott is as caring as he is attractive, and Tess can't help but feel for him and his family. Though, for the sake of her job, she'll keep any emotions about her boss to herself. 

Between his stationmaster responsibilities in a gold-rush town and trying to put his family back together, Spencer has his hands full. He soon finds his new hire's kind personality warming his frosty exterior. But could he ever admit to seeing her as more than just an employee?

    I adored this delightful story!

    Keli Gwyn is a gifted storyteller who paints a vivid picture with her words. I loved everything about Family of Her Dreams, from the charming characters to the captivating story line! Tess and Spencers story is heartfelt, emotional, and romantic! Family of Her Dreams is one of my new favorite historical romances. I cant wait for more tales from Keli Gwyn!

    She had a way of making him forget the past and believe in the future again.

    This is definitely a case where you can judge a book by its cover. I love the motion depicted in the illustration -- and the scene perfectly fits the mood of the story. It's a wonderful celebration of dreams -- both the kind you yearn for and the kind that, unfortunately, need to be relinquished to bittersweet memories.

    Poor Spencer is a grappling with grief in true manly fashion -- that is keep his head down and ignore it. Not an advisable way of coping -- especially for his young children. He hires a housekeeper in the hopes of regaining some order in his life. Cue the gregarious, outspoken Tess. Not quite the gentle, docile woman he was envisioning would bring harmony back to his home. But sometimes God has plans that are greater (and better) than our own.

    Loved that this story takes place over months -- the reader gets to see a realistic progression of Tess and Spencer's developing friendship. Not to mention Tess's slow wooing of Spencer's surly young son. That boy is carrying a world of hurt on his little shoulders and her love and patience make a profound difference.

    There are a few really touching story threads that brought a thrill to my romance-loving heart. And humour and action and a dark moment that had my heart sinking down to my toes. In short -- the perfection combination for an enthralling read.

    Family of Her Dreams is such a sweet story of love and faith. I just loved Tess when she was with the children. And really loved her and Spencer when they were together. A wonderful, tender and inspiring story.

    Looking forward to more by Keli Gwyn.

    Set in 1866 in California, FAMILY OF HER DREAMS is a delightful, heart-warming story that I didn't want to end. Tess Grimsby is a caregiver to two young children and the housekeeper for their widowed father, Spencer Abbott. Author Keli Gwyn did a wonderful job making the characters "come alive" and as I read, I felt I was really there, observing the people and events. This historical story had just the right amount of romance and action, complete with believable characters. I highly recommend FAMILY OF HER DREAMS, and I look forward to reading many more books by Author Keli Gwyn. FIVE STARS!!!

    Tess Grimsby longs for a family of her own. Instead, she must be content with being a caretaker to a recently widowed man's children. Raised in an orphanage, Tess is well aware of the trauma and stages of grief that children go through and hopes to make a difference in the lives of her two young charges.

    Spencer Abbott has his hands full as a stationmaster and trying to create some semblance of order for his children. He hadn't counted on a headstrong nanny that questions him on what seems like every decision. But he can't deny the good Tess has provided either.

    Is Tess worth the trouble?

    This was the second book I've read by Keli Gwyn, and I found it quite enjoyable. She provides a sigh-worthy happily-ever-after. You won't be disappointed.
