About the Book:
Longing for adventure, Priscilla Morton leaves Boston in 1856 and heads for the Texas Hill Country, never dreaming that the adventure she seeks could have heartbreaking consequences. Although attracted to her, ranch foreman Zachary Webster knows Priscilla deserves a cultured East Coast gentleman, not a cowboy who’s haunted by memories of his mistakes.
When necessity draws them together, Priscilla and Zach begin to forge a life filled with promise. But then the past intrudes.
Book 2 of the Texas Dreams series, Scattered Petals weaves a tale of drama, love, and second chances as beautiful as the Hill Country itself.

I loved this book! This book is both heart warming and heart wrenching. A story that is filled with tragedy and heartache, as well as, compassion, understanding and romance. It was truly hard to put this book down for anything! I fell in love with the characters, especially little Thea! She was a charming child with that child innocence that will pull you right in! My heart really went out to Priscilla, or Sunny Cilla, as she’s known. She endured a terrible tragedy, yet had to push on. I don’t think I could have done that! And Zach….well, let’s just say that I would love to have a man like Zach in my life! But amongst all these secrets, tragedies and heartaches, there is something more. There is God. God’s love, God’s forgiveness and His mercy, all of which you can see healing these souls.
Amanda Cabott really captured history and took me to a place in time that I would love to have truly lived in! I felt a part of Ladreville, Texas and didn’t want to leave! This is book 2 in the Texas Dreams series, and while I wish I could have had the chance to read book 1, Paper Roses, I wasn’t lost in this book. To me, it would be a perfect stand alone or a perfect book in the series. A well written, 5 star book from an extremely talented author. Definitely recommend and definitely looking forward to book 3’s release,in March of 2011 !
