Wonderful mature love story
Another great read from Wendy Lindstrom. The Promise in Your Eyes shows us that you can love again. We fell in love with Nancy Grayson when we first met her in the Grayson Brothers series as the matriach of the Grayson family. She's a strong woman who finished raising her sons alone after the death of her husband, Hal. We fell in love with her in her love story with Hal. But after being alone for so many years, can she love again?
The story is filled with the rich descriptions of Fredonia that are a hallmark for Ms. Lindstrom's novels. We again see the generosity of the Grayson family - sons and their wives, as well as their children - as we ride along on the Sleigh of Hope. And we struggle along with Nancy as she fights her feelings for Dawson and chooses between her past and her future, her family and her own heart, and Fredonia and Crane Landing. Emotionally-gripping, I cried tears along with Nancy as her heart pulls her in several directions.
My heart aches for Dawson as he puts it on the line for a love that she might not can return. Dawson is a romantic and sweeps Nancy, as well as the reader, off her feet with the intensity of his feelings. He's not hesitant about telling Nancy how he feels and he's incredibly patient as Nancy's heart feels pulled in two directions at once. Nancy's struggle is relatable and shows the very real struggle many women face between their lives as a mother and as a woman. It gives the reader hope for love, even in the autumn of your life.
