Author: Miralee Ferrill
Publisher: David C. Cook
October 2014
ISBN: 978-0781408103
Genre: Historical Romance

When her father's debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson's family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah's family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she's fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.

This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman's past.

DREAMING ON DAISIES is the third in the Love Blossoms in Oregon series, but it easily stands alone. I didn’t read any of the two previous books but had no problem keeping up with what was happening in this story.

Leah is a very strong heroine, caught in a world of loss. Her mom died, her brother took off, and her stepfather checks out of life by becoming a drunkard. Steven, too, suffered a lot of loss. His sister vanished as a child, when she was recovered his mother checked out to dote on her, he lost his family land, and his home. I wondered how these poor characters would persevere and conquer.

I enjoyed reading this book, but it wasn’t stupendous, I must keep this on my bookshelf great.  It was more of a happy, quiet read that left me satisfied with a story well told, but I won’t have any problem passing my copy on to a friend.

If you like historicals, books based on Oregon history, then DREAMING ON DAISIES will be a great book to check out.  Recommended.

4 stars. Available in paperback and kindle. 384 pages.
