"Summer of Promise is a riveting romance filled with mystery and a sweet love story. The setting of Amanda Cabot’s newest novel takes us back to Wyoming Territory in 1885. When Abigail Harding travels to Fort Laramie to see her sister she finds more adventure than she expected. I found life on an army post out on the frontier to be fascinating and the love story one of the best I’ve read this year.From the back of the book:
Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont, Abigail Harding cannot dismiss her concerns over her older sister. Charlotte's letters have been uncharacteristically melancholy, and her claims that nothing is wrong ring false, so Abigail heads west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. When her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger, Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.
Abigail plans to marry when she returns to Vermont, just as soon as she attends to her sister. As the summer passes, she finds herself drawn to this rugged land and to a certain soldier determined to persuade her to stay. When summer ends, will she go back East, or will she find her heart's true home?
