Another great book by Sophie Dawson! As a fan of her Cottonwood
Another great book by Sophie Dawson! As a fan of her Cottonwood series I loved the appearance of Nugget Nate and the fact that some of the characters of Stones Creek are distant relatives of Aggie Cuttler from Cottonwood. Leah comes to Stones Creek running from her past and bad memories of the war. Who does she run into but the one person she wants to forget…Eli Steele! Through the help of Eli she is able to face her bad memories and learn to rely on God to bring her peace and strength. This book had a little bit of everything in it…romance, humor and adventure!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Civil War in Colorado has only been over for a short time, and Leah is through with anything that has to do with the war. And especially anything medical, since she helped her father, who was a surgeon, take care of the medical conditions of many that crossed her path during the war. After her father’s death, Leah decided to relocate to Stones Creek, Colorado so she could live near her cousin Sara and her family. Sara and her husband ran a convenience store and Leah was to open a dress shop next to the store. Everything was going well until Leah met the town Doctor, Dr. Eli Steele, and Leah immediately recognized him from the war. How on earth did they manage to land in the same small community? Dr. Steele knew Leah was uncomfortable with him, but he just couldn't think of any reason she would be. Knowing that there are more single men than single women in Stone Creek doesn’t help matters either. What would happen when Eli finds out who Leah really is? And will Leah be able to ignore the single men that try to pursue her? Find the answers to these and much more in this wonderful heartwarming story by Sophie Dawson.
I was immediately captivated by this story from the very first page! The tension was high with Leah moving to a new place, and knowing no one except her cousin Sara. Leah’s Peace is the title of the book, but Leah wasn’t always at peace in Stone Creek, and especially when a Chase Ranch cowboy seeks revenge for Leah and had his friends kidnap Leah and Eli. This brings the entire town out to try to find the two, but that’s not all that happens here. You do not want to miss this exciting book because you just have to find out what happens to Leah and Eli. Sophie Dawson is a fantastic storyteller and the vivid details of the difficult war situations she describes are amazing. I could feel Leah’s pain as Ms. Dobson was describing the scenes that told of the war. There is book two in this series, that I am getting ready to read, and I highly recommend Leah’s Peace, as well as book two in Stones Creek, Chasing Norie.
