Daughters of the Heart by Caryl McAdoo
I loved this historical christian fiction story by Caryl McAdoo. It is book 5 in the Texas Romance series. You don't have to read the books in order, but it helps to know the backgrounds of the characters. Cecilia, Gwendolyn, and Bonnie have vowed not to break their father's heart like their older sister did when she ran off and got married. Anybody that even thinks of dating his daughters, their father will shoot. But can Henry Buckmeyer go against his daughters' wishes when they find their one true loves and wish to marry before they turn 18?
Cecilia meets a man and wants to spend her future with him. But he's leaving Texas and going to California. How can they stand being apart? Gwendolyn's suitor has been run off by her father, but he comes back for her. Another man shows up and Gwendolyn can't decide which one she likes better. Cecilia and Gwendolyn must decide if they can trust their hearts or if one of their beaus is a fraud.
This is a great story filled with engaging characters, descriptive settings, and a flowing story line. I didn't want the story to end. What do you do when your past catches up to you and your future is closer than you want? Step into Henry's shoes and see how he handles his past and the changing future.
