Waiting for Morning by Margaret Brownley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
series "The Brides of Last Chance Ranch" by Margaret Brownley this book Waiting for Morning.
My first book read by this author and even though it is in a series I loved the story and it read fine alone.
The character of Molly Hatfield was of a fiesty young girl who is dedicated to caring for her brother that she has a ton of guilt about, thinking she caused the accident that made him be in a wheelchair.
She has decided she will always care for him and when a chance comes to go to Arizona to Cactus Patch and apply for job at the Last Chance she jumps in with both feet and all of her heart....
Miss Walker owns the Last Chance and is looking for an Heiress to take over the management of the ranch, her one stipulation the person can never marry. She believes the ranch needs a persons undivided attention. Molly thinking she would have a stable place for her brother Donny thinks this would be no problem for her.
This thought is before she meets and gets to know Dr Caleb Faribanks, the towns charming doctor who has a way about him and also has the only vehicle in town that he lovingly calls "Bertha". The old girl has a problem that is bothersome as she backfires a lot and many think guns are going off which causes a few problems... another problem when it is near the cattle they tend to stampede when they hear the terrible noises it makes.
It was at just one of these times that the good Dr and miss Molly met while she was on her way to the Ranch.
You will enjoy reading the story of Molly and the characters of the town and the Last Chance Ranch, I did.
Problems are solved and Hopes for the future renewed as Molly grows to love this Arizona ranch and she finds that Donny can become more independent and not take so much help with the Doctor's sharing his time and attention..Even The owner Miss Walker might just change her mind about a few things..come read.
