Book Review - Dawn Comes Early
Dawn Comes Early is a Brides of Last Chance Novel written by Margaret Brownley. The book's setting is 1895 in the Arizona territory. Kate Tenney answers an ad written by Eleanor Walker who is looking for a hardworking woman to learn the ranching business in Arizona territory. Eleanor plans to eventually turn her ranch over to the woman that she selects. The catch is that the woman selected must be single and "remain so now and forevermore."
Kate Tenney was a dimestore novelist who was dropped by her publisher and is looking for a fresh start. Kate has had a string of failed romances and has no intention of ever marrying. She feels that she would be the perfect candidate for the ad. However, once Kate arrives at the ranch, she meets Luke Adams and starts to have feelings for him. She starts to feel that God brought her to the Arizona desert territory to give her a new life and also to test her.
My thoughts: I thought the plot of the story was interesting - having the main character answer an ad to learn the ranching business, along with the stipulation that the person must remain single forever. I enjoyed the interaction between Kate and Luke and had to wait until the very end of the book to see if they ended up together. This book was a fun read!
