I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Irish Meadows (Courage to Dream #1) by Susan Anne Mason
Published by Bethany House Publisher on July 7th 2015
Irish immigrant James O’Leary has spent his life building Irish Meadows into a thriving horse farm and is not about to let hard economic times threaten its success. He intends for his daughters to marry prosperous men–ones who will secure the family’s rightful place in society, and at the same time, guarantee the future of Irish Meadows. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.
Brianna and Colleen O’Leary know their father expects them to marry well. Yet despite his wishes, Brianna, the quieter sister, dreams of attending college. Vivacious Colleen, meanwhile, is happy to marry–as long as her father’s choice meets her exacting standards. When stable hand Gilbert Whelan returns from college and distant family member Rylan Montgomery stops in on his way to the seminary in Boston, the two men quickly complicate everyone’s plans. It will take every ounce of courage for both sisters to follow their hearts. And even if they do, will they inevitably find their dreams too distant to reach?
I wrote this part while still reading it:)
*Ever want to strangle or slap a main charters parent??? Cause that’s how I’m feeling about james, Brianna and colleges dad!!
I’m only 1/3 of the way through and I can’t stand him and to top it off everyone is bending over backwards to please the guy.
Brianna is clearly my favorite sister, Colleen is to stuck up and flirty…though I’m hoping that’ll change.
Out of Gil and Rylan though I can’t choose yet anyway*
Okay I’ve finished it now, and I gotta day I loved it!! There were so many twists I didn’t expect and a few times I wanted to slap both Brianna father and Gil….and once or twice for Brianna and Colleen:)
I think my favorite out of Gil and Rylan is Rylan!!
I CAN NOT wait for the next book!
