Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley

Kate Tenney writes dime novels, otherwise known as potboilers. But her last novel was banned, being named immoral.  Disgusted and disgraced, Kate answers an ad in the paper - a woman looking for an heiress.  Kate has never ranched before but she's wrote about it.  It should be a piece of cake to pass the test and soon become owner of the large ranch.

She's in over her head, not realizing how hard ranch work is, but she won't quit.  She'll even find the contract that she will remain forever a spinster if she inherits and becomes the boss lady.  Even when the blacksmith, Luke Adams, finds himself attracted to Kate, and she him, she turns him away. When a local criminal decides to kidnap Kate, Adam stops at nothing to find her.

When the urge to write strikes her, she begins to write at night and work the ranch by day.  There's no room for a relationship in her life.  She has her relationship with God and that will have to suffice but what if God has other plans for Kate?

I love reading stories set in the past, where things were simpler.  I adored Logan's aunts - they really livened things up in the tale. Dawn Comes Early is filled with love, promise, struggle and faith.  I can't wait to read the next in this delightful series! I found myself caught up in their lives and hated to see it end.  Highly recommend!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
