A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham

This book is special. This is the book that dethroned my current 2020 favorite book! I have had the same book at the top of my list for most of the year until this little gem from Rachel Fordham came along. It's an instant favorite! I haven't read any of Rachel's work before so I didn't know what to expect. But now I immediately added her other books to my TBR list!

This book takes place in the 1800s in the small town of Penance. Aggie has been the beloved schoolteacher in Penance for 6 years...ever since she literally ran for the hills and away from the love of her life in Buffalo. Aggie learned a shocking secret that changed her life forever and she felt she had no other choice but to completely start her life afresh in a new place. While trying to protect her fiance, James, she inadvertently caused him tremendous pain as well as herself.

When a handsome new doctor comes to Penance, Aggie is completely surprised to find out that he is none other than her beloved James. As their paths cross again, Aggie and James try to decipher the mysteries of their past and move forward with a future together.

This book made me made me made me feel. It's an unforgettable book and one that will inspire everyone who reads it. The characters feel like old, wise friends and the author's talent inspires me to write the stories that are on my heart. Rachel Fordham has a gift and it's an honor to read her work. Thank you so much to Revell and Rachel Fordham for the chance to read and review this book!
