Review: A Life Once Dreamed by:Rachel Fordham

 A Life Once Dreamed

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.


About the Book:

 Six years ago, a shocking secret sent Agnes Pratt running in search of a new start. She found it in Penance, a rugged town of miners and lumberjacks in the Dakota Territory, where she became Miss Aggie, respected schoolteacher and confirmed old maid. But the past has a way of catching up with people.

When childhood friend and former sweetheart James Harris accepts a position as the town doctor, Aggie's pleasantly predictable days suddenly become anything but. James wants to know why Agnes left behind the life they had dreamed of creating for themselves--but he is the one person who can never know.

In the shadows of the Black Hills, can a healing light be shed on the past? Or will the secret Agnes can't seem to outrun destroy her chance at happiness?

Fan-favorite Rachel Fordham brings to life the dusty streets of an 1880s frontier town in this story that affirms where you come from matters far less than where you're going.

My Review:

 I think sometimes you take a step back from everything you ever known, loved or dreamed for yourself--usually out of fear. But a lot of it seems to be too much, at times. Even poor Aggie feels that the secret that she hold to herself, will just be too much to bear for anyone she knows, loves, or even cares about. I felt that Aggie had to be a very strong individual to walk away from the person she loved most in the world. Just to start a new life, elsewhere. A new life that doesnt include her beloved James. But little does she know, she will have to face him one way or another.

 Whether its the Lord or fate or even karma for that matter---she will face what she has left behind. James has a lot of questions only Aggie can answer. 

A great summer read!
