A Tender Hope By Amanda Cabot

Ms. Cabot is an author I truly enjoy. Her historical fiction is wholesome and entertaining. This is her third in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy. I have read the other two and could not wait to read this one! I am sorry to see the series come to an end. This can easily be read as a stand alone
Thea arrives in Cimarron Creek, Texas, recently hired as the new midwife. It is the late 1800’s. She comes here hoping for a fresh start. Her husband has died and she has also lost her child at birth. Her hopes are to go about a job she loves and keep to herself. The wounds are fresh and her heart is raw. Unbeknownst to her, this fresh start drags along part of her past, some of which she had no clue. A Texas Ranger named Jackson is on the hunt for outlaws that killed his brother and badly hurt is partner. While out searching for clues he finds a newborn left in the middle of nowhere. He brings the babe to the only person he knows can care for it, the new midwife.
The vast range of emotions of each character and the detailed description of their lives and experiences make the story enjoyable and inviting. As with all of Ms. Cabot’s writings the importance of God runs strong throughout the book. Something that jumped out to me as a reminder and lesson for my life is the miscommunication and misunderstandings between people when they assume but never talk about it or ask. This book made it hard for me to turn out the light at night and go to bed! I just kept saying I would read one more page!!!
