Release Date: January 13, 2022
Genre: Christian, Historical Romance

Dreams are precious commodities in the Blue Ridge Mountains of 1918, and Laurel McAdams is attempting to make hers come true. But sometimes, life in the mountains has a way of squandering dreams. As she attempts to avoid matrimony, she is secretly saving for her future with the sole purpose of becoming a teacher and bringing consistent education back to her people.

Having failed his British father again by being unable to fight in the Great War, Jonathan Taylor joins his uncle’s missionary endeavors as a teacher in a two-room schoolhouse in Appalachia, but nothing prepares him for the rugged wilderness, narrow-minded natives, and…Laurel McAdams. Her joy and friendship prove a guiding light in the middle of his new responsibilities and tempt his timid heart toward a future he never expected.

But when Jonathan’s teaching methods lead to dangerous outcomes and Laurel’s dream is threatened by an unexpected choice, will these two learn how to find hope and maybe even love beyond the heartache? Can Jonathan and Laurel create a new dream from the shattered pieces of the old ones or will bitterness and brokenness keep them apart?

Laurel’s Dream was originally published by Barbour Publishing as My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge: Laurel’s Dream in January 2019
