    One thought on “Tomorrow's Garden”

    1. Amanda Cabot has quickly become one of my go-to authors. I can't even count the number of times I've recommended her books to my book friendsey're just that good! Her latest offering is the last book in the Texas Dreams Series, and I'm so sad that my time with the citizens of Ladreville has come to an end.I enjoyed seeing the town through the eyes of Lawrence and Harriet. I have to confess that Lawrence wasn't one of my favorite characters in the last book. He was too stiff and rugged for my tas [...]

    2. I’d awaited Tomorrow’s Garden, the final book in Amanda Cabot’s Texas Dreams trilogy, eager for Texas Ranger Lawrence Wood to find peace and the right woman for him, and I was rewarded with a heartwarming story. Cabot’s a gifted writer who creates endearing characters. Harriet Kirk, the town’s new teacher, is a handful at first: strong-willed, determined, and saddled with responsibilities that have caused her to give up her dreams of marriage and a family of her own. Patient and percep [...]

    3. With some knowledge of the people in the Texas Dreams series behind me (I have read Scattered Petals) and the pretty, cheerful, springtime cover, I was very confident that I would enjoy this new release. Amanda Cabot did not disappoint me. Tomorrow’s Garden was a very pleasant read; the perfect book to curl up with under a tree outside on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Harriet was a rather complex character that, while I enjoyed getting to know her in this book, I didn’t connect with her as m [...]

    4. Amanda Cabot in her new book, "Tomorrow's Garden" Book Three in the Texas Dreams series published by Revell takes us back to the town of Ladreville.No doubt about it I like Westerns. I like, "saddle up your horses" and "we're burning daylight". Am I saying that this book is "The Magnificent Seven" for the 21st Century? No. What I am saying is this book is a lot like the old Gene Autry/Roy Rogers movies that Republic used to put out. It has romance, an ex-Texas Ranger and troubles for each one of [...]

    5. In Tomorrow’s Garden, Harriet Kirk is the new schoolteacher in Ladreville, Texas. She takes the job as a means to escape past secrets, but doesn’t realize that Ladreville possesses a few secrets of its own. As she struggles for acceptance in the community, she also has the daunting task of mothering her younger siblings, some of whom resent the move to a new community. When did teenagers ever feel happy about being uprooted? In her efforts to parent her siblings, and gain respect among the [...]

    6. It had been a while since I had read a historical western and I was ready to read one. I was really in the mood for a good, relaxing, and romantic historical and I was not disappointed by Tomorrow’s Garden. This book did take a little time to get into and stay engaged at times, but overall I did enjoy it quite a bit. It also took some time for me to like Harriet, which I’m sure was the author’s intention because growth and change are running themes in this story. I like books that revolve [...]

    7. Overall I am delighted to meet the imaginative mind of Amanda Cabot within her new Christian Historical Fiction books this one was not my favorite in the series. Yet that all relies on the fact that the main character of Harriett was so difficult to like, which shows that she was complex. There were just so many things about her that made me want to scream. With that said, otherwise I love the series and story behind it all and cannot wait to read the new series starting next year (2012) based i [...]

    8. An enduring story of sacrifice, patience, and love—the perfect finale to the Texas Dreams trilogy. And for those who currently expect little from life, “Tomorrow’s Garden” may very well inspire you to hope for more. Recommended.

    9. Pretty good! Seemed kind of slow, though, and didn't hold my attention very well. But that's partly because I've had a lot on my mind which has affected my concentration.

    10. I just finished this book, the last in this Texas Dreams series. When I read it, I missed that it was the third of three. Normally I would have went back and started from the beginning. But it also would be a great stand alone book. Right from the start I was taken into the setting of the book along with the characters. Some times when reading a novel if there are too many characters, you get lost. That is not true with Amanda's books. I truly enjoyed everything about it and can't wait to read m [...]

    11. Part three in the Texas Dreams trilogy. A clean, enjoyable read. Some romance, tragedy, and study of life in a small Texas town. The book can stand alone but reading the other two books first, will help you recognize people as they pop up. Once I got started, I couldn't put it down. I HAD to know how it ended! ALWAYS check out your local library after reading the first free book to see if the other two can be borrowed instead of bought. Sometime, you can! Loved the whole series.

    12. Of the three books in the series, this was my least favorite but I still enjoyed it. I just didn't like Harriet, the main character, much. I did not like how she treated Jake, her younger brother or how she treated Lawrence. I was glad to see she changed for the better by the end of the book. I really liked Lawrence and how he tried to help Jake. There were parts in this book that made me laugh out loud. It's an entertaining read. (Karen's review)

    13. Personal ReflectionExcellent read as they all are. Love the relationship resolves with God in controlMakes you reflect on your on stubbornness and forgetting God is in control

    14. Tomorrow's Garden is Book #3 in the popular series, Texas Dreams, written by the talented and gifted author, Amanda Cabot. I would like to preface my remarks by stating that I read this book without having first read the first two books in the series. I had no difficulty at all in following the story line and feel that this book can stand alone and be thoroughly enjoyed without the benefit of reading the first books. However, having read book 3, I am completely in love with the series and fully [...]

    16.

    17. In this third (and last) book in the Texas Dreams trilogy, familiar faces return, but there are also new characters to get acquainted with. We are introduced to Harriet Kirk, a young woman desperate to escape to a place where no one knows her. So when the opportunity arises, she jumps at the chance to move to Ladreville, Texas, dragging her orphaned brothers and sisters along with her.I must admit that I felt Harriet and Lawrence took a liking to each other a bit too quickly. Initially it just f [...]

    18. This is the third and final book in the Texas Dreams series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I'm glad I read the second book, Scattered Petals, because that is when the reader first meets Ranger Lawrence Wood. Also, it's nice to see how all the characters from books 1 and 2 are growing their families. In the previous story, Lawrence was smitten---and rejected---by the heroine and now he gets his own love story. Harriet Kirk has led a difficult life with neglectful parents, forcing her to gr [...]

    19. What a disappointment! The second book in the series, Scattered Petals, improved upon the first, making me think that it was just "My First Book Ever" issues that plagued Paper Roses. However, from the introduction of this book's heroine, I could tell that I would not enjoy this story. Harriet was too prickly to be likable to the reader and Lawrence had changed dramatically as well. He went from being a strong Texas Ranger to being a weaker version of himself all because he was chained to a desk [...]

    20. TOMORROW’S GARDEN by Amanda Cabot had all the elements for a good romance book.

Never one to think about herself, she finds herself confused about her growing feelings for Lawrence Wood, the town sheriff.Lawrence Wood, former Texas Ranger, is in La [...]

    21. This book was good (3.5 stars), but I don't know just not as good as the others I've read recently. Lawrence Wood is essentially the interim major/sheriff of Ladreville, Texas. He feels inspired to settle there, at least temporarily, even though it's sort of embarrassing considering Priscilla lives there with her new husband! But when a new schoolteacher, Harriet Kirk, comes to town, it's no longer Priscilla who occupies his thoughts!Harriet is not your average young woman! She's pretty much the [...]

    22. Harriet Kirk has many fears, fears that control her life. She fears house fires, she fears having her younger brothers and sisters being taken from her, she fears scandal, she is just afraid of so many things, including love. No one will ever want to marry her, she has too much baggage. She hopes a move from Fortune, the small town they grew up in, to a larger town Ladreville, will change things in her life. She will get away from the dreadful Thomas who wants to marry her, but doesn't love her. [...]

    24. This is the first book I’ve read of Amanda Cabot’s and I really enjoyed it. Tomorrow’s Garden is the third book in the Texas Dreams series, but can also be read as a stand alone book. Love the cover and title. Harriet takes her five younger siblings and moves to a different town so they all can have a fresh start without any mistakes, but did she do the right thing?

    27. Like a garden this book requires a little patience--but the overall result is lovely.
