Summer of Promise (#1 in Westward Winds Series)

Also Available In
Though she had planned to spend the summer in Vermont with her sweetheart, 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 Wyoming. The endless prairie seems monotonous, but when her stagecoach is attacked, Wyoming promises to be anything but boring. Luckily, the heroics of another passenger, Lieutenant Ethan Bowles, save the day.

When circumstances--and perhaps a bit of matchmaking--put Abigail and Ethan together, there's certainly attraction. But Abigail is planning to marry another man and return to life in Vermont as soon as she is finished attending to her sister. And Ethan loves his life in the Army and the wilds of Wyoming. When summer ends, will Abigail go back East? Or will she fall in love with this rugged land herself?

Book 1 of the new Westward Winds series, Summer of Promise is a tale of following your heart to unexpected places. Readers will enjoy Amanda Cabot's passionate characters and vibrant setting in the beautiful high prairie.

Historical romance
4 stars By Margot, Jun 30 2016
"Summer of Promise" is the first in a series but stands alone well. It is a well-written Christian historical romance set in 1885 in Wyoming. Amanda Cabot describes the region and life at a fort vividly without slowing the plot. There is mystery running throughout the book, and I wondered how all the threads could possible be tied together and finished off before I got to the end.The characters were complex, and likeable, and it is a pleasure to watch their love and their faith mature through hardships faced together and with an awareness of God's work in their lives. I am happy to recommend this enjoyable novel.

Very good read
4 stars By Joy C, Nov 25 2015
This a well written period fiction involving mystery, love and Christian standards by some of the characters. After reading a couple of chapters, I was anxious to see how the situations panned out and the author had me in suspense as to how things would work out for the good of some of the main characters.
I recommend this book and look forward to reading the subsequent books in this series.

Summer of Promise by Amanda Cabot
4 stars By Jenny Skinner, Jul 24 2013
Amanda Cabot weaves another beautiful love story, within the pages of 'Summer of Promise', sensitively revealing the twists and turns of the heart as each person learns to put their trust in the Lord for their future.
Like the tumbleweeds of the Wyoming landscape, Abigail Harding must be strong and hardy to survive the journey west to reach her ailing sister. First she must be uprooted then tossed across a lonesome landscape within the confines of a stagecoach and lastly land in barren Fort Laramie.
Lieutenant Ethan Bowles sees beauty in his wild surroundings and in the woman known as Abigail, but his heart is hard and devoid of feeling.  Can Ethan convince Abigail of the treasures in Wyoming? Can God use Abigail to spark warmth and love into Ethan's heart?
Amanda introduces a number of other interesting characters within this story and you are left wondering how their lives might change in the future. This first book of the Westward Series leaves you wanting to read more.

All who turn its pages will enjoy, 'Summer Rose'.
