My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Quinten Aspinall is determined to fulfill a promise he made to his deceased father to keep his family together. To do so, he must travel to Canada to find his younger siblings, who were sent there as indentured workers while Quinn was away at war. He is also solicited by his employer to look for the man's niece who ran off with a Canadian soldier. If Quinn can bring Julia back, he will receive his own tenant farm, enabling him to provide a home for his ailing mother and siblings.
Julia Holloway's decision to come to Toronto has been met with disaster. When her uncle's employee rescues her from a bad situation, she fears she can never repay Quinn's kindness. So when he asks her to help find his sister, she agrees. Soon after, however, Julia receives some devastating news that changes everything.
Torn between reuniting his family and protecting Julia, will Quinn have to sacrifice his chance at happiness to finally keep his promise?
I always get excited to get my hands on a new release by Susan Anne Mason. Her third installment from her Canadian Crossings series, The Brightest of Dreams, is no different. I loved every single page of this book. Of the three books from the series, this one is probably my favorite. I loved the historical details that were so vivid, I felt like I was right there with Quinten and Julia.
I am giving The Brightest of Dreams a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy clean historical fiction.
I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
