Sigh-Worthy for All the Right Reasons!Five Stars *****
I didn't even think about the title - To Mend A Dream - and how clever that was, until just now when I was ready to review this lovely novella. I mostly read Among the Fair Magnolias as the title, but I believe that is the series name. I have only read this novella so far, in the collection, but the other titles look appealing as well. Tamara Alexander's books have always pleased me and I had to read it all in one night. My poor husband let me keep the little light on by the bedside as I completed my read on my Kindle!
So our lovely seamstress, Savannah, needs to MEND her dream, that has been crushed with the loss of her ancestral home. But something, a treasure of some kind, is hidden at her family's plantation house. What is it? When God gives her an opportunity to legitimately get inside her old home, you want to shout a "hurrah" for her!
You just want to FIGHT for Savannah to have her home restored to her! And for her little family to be blessed by the "Yankee" Bostonian attorney who has purchased her family's estate and is settling in. While his fiancee is not someone most of us would choose as a friend, her behavior is somewhat understandable.
How will Savannah's life be restored? Can it happen through a man promised to another or in some other way God has planned? You won't regret reading and finding out!
