In Firefly Valley

Relationships are hard to restore. In this story the relationship between father and daughter was shattered. Our main character Marisa is finding it hard not only to forget, but also to forgive. Let’s look in deeper to the heart of Firefly Valley.

Love is hard to find when you’re heart is closed off. I know from experience, and from what I read in this book. Marisa could never seem to forgive her father for deserting her and her mother, spending countless time and resources trying to find him. She never wanted to return home to the painful memories of the past, but when the company she works for is downsized she has no choice in the matter.

Amanda Cabot set very realistic characters into Rainbow’s end in the Hill country of Texas. I found them very relatable, from the hot-tempered Marisa to the quick to flee Blake Kendall. I did feel it was a little rushed around, but I think that comes from starting on book two of the series. I felt like I should have known some characters, but it wasn’t too bad. I do recommend reading Amanda Cabot’s first book to the series Bluebonnet Lake.

I found one of the characters in this book extremely admirable; Blake Kendall’s father. Even when Blake’s grandfather went on tirade after tirade, but still he was gentle, calm, and respectful of his father. I remember a verse that says to honor thy father and thy morther, That is what Blake’s father expressed and I aspire to be able to do with our Lord’s help.

In the end In Firefly Valley was a wonderful book, and I very much look forward to reading Bluebonnet Lake and the next book in the trilogy On Lone Star trail in 2016

That’s it for now. May you have a blessed day

I received this book for free an exchange for an honest review which I have given
