Having read and loved To Dance Once More, I was sort of expecting another historical. Of course, if I had read the back cover I would have realized it wasn’t. Shame on me. However, after I got over my initial shock, I enjoyed this story a great deal. What’s not to love about a rugged cowboy and his young daughter? Song of the Meadowlark was a well-written, wonderful story of second chance love. I read it in ONE day and only stopped long enough to feed my hungry crew.
When trusting others only leads to pain and rejection, and loving ends only in loss, what will it take to restore hope again?
Shunned by the uncovered truth about her missing husband’s secret life, Cora Buchanan sets out on a road trip for home to mend her broken relationship with her parents. When her car breaks down, she’s stranded in a small Georgia town.
While staying at the struggling Southern Hope Ranch, she meets little Susie O’Reilly, who unexpectedly fills a void in Cora’s heart. But Rex, Susie’s rugged cowboy father who lost his wife a year earlier, seems to go out of his way to either confront or avoid Cora. It doesn’t help her comfort level that the news continues to report missing and murdered women in the area.
Cora has no idea just how close to home the crimes will hit…or how much the sweet sound of the meadowlark’s song at the ranch will impact her future.
