Overview

Cottonwood 1875

“Magdelina Taylor, how could you break your mother’s heart so?”

Out from under her domineering mother and into an apartment above her workplace, Maggie Taylor finally blossoms into the woman she feels God wants her to be. She revels in her independence and doesn't want any sort of entanglement with a man.

Forced by his father to leave England, Sinjon Lytton arrives in Cottonwood only to find he’s to work as a stable hand. The only good thing about the town is the beautiful woman with the golden hair he meets the first day.

Maggie doesn't feel any delight about the man who seems so happy to be hired as her driver. She denies the tingling the touch his hand brings her, too busy dealing with living on her own to admit her growing attraction to Sinjon.

Maggie’s mother would love nothing more than to see them married. Maggie worries if their faiths are too different to get what her heart desires. Sinjon wants what Sinjon wants and nothing is going to stand in his way.

When all options seem wrong, can they learn to trust God and see that he will make a way? Even when it seems impossible?

    Lord¿s Love by Sophie Dawson is the second book in the Cottonwoo

    Lord’s Love by Sophie Dawson is the second book in the Cottonwood series and deals with the romance between Maggie and the new man in town. Lord St. John Lytton arrives in Cottonwood, Iowa, from England in 1875. Because of his enormous amount of debts and his lack of even trying to pay them, his father gives St. John the choice of going to America or debtor’s prison. When St. John, nicknamed Sinjon, arrived in Cottonwood he was so obnoxious that no one wanted anything to do with him. He felt that since he was of the British aristocracy that he was above everyone in the town. His father sent him to live and work for a former servant. To say that working for a former servant galled Sinjon is putting it mildly. And the job he was given was working in the livery where his main job was to muck out the stalls. Fortunately, pretty soon Sinjon realized that people are all the same and he was no better than anyone else and when he came down off his high horse he began to make friends. Magdelina Taylor, who preferred to be called Maggie, finally got up enough nerve to get a job working for the community newspaper. When her boss got married and moved out of the apartment above the newspaper office, he offered the apartment to Maggie and she quickly accepted his offer. Her mother was mortified that her daughter would stoop so low as to take a job and then to move out of a beautiful home to a small apartment. Maggie’s mother refused to let her learn any skills that would help her in keeping a home but fortunately, several of Maggie’s friends helped her to learn what she needed to know.




    Sinjon is smitten with Maggie the first time he sees her but she is enjoying the freedom from her domineering mother too much to even think about a relationship with a man. Most of the story deals with their relationship and all the obstacles that both must overcome. Maggie is a Christian and lives her beliefs and Sinjon thinks he is a Christian just because he has gone to church his entire life. When Sinjon proposes to Maggie will she accept or decline? And will the story have a happy ending or will there be sadness? I will say no more for do not want to spoil the ending.




    All elements of the story were very well developed and again the characters in Cottonwood, Iowa, came to life on the pages of the book. At the beginning of the book, Sinjon was extremely unlikeable but the author developed his character so well that he became a most likeable young man and was accepted by the people of the town. All the characters were great but Maggie became an exceptional young woman with a knack for work, an independent spirit, and a new approach to life that was filled with joy. There was some suspense in the story when Maggie was injured and was unconscious for quite a while. The author did a wonderful job of writing the discussion between Sinjon and Peter, the pastor of the community church. I like that God and his love are a very important part of the book. Now I am looking forward to reading the third book in the series. Maybe the author will even write a fourth and even a fifth.




    I highly recommend this second book in the Cottonwood series for it is just as good as the first book. It continues the lives of characters introduced in the first book with lots of romance. And important to me is that the author has a God centered message in this second book also.




    A big thank you to the author, Sophie Dawson, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Excellent! This is the second book I have read by Sophie Dawson

    Excellent! This is the second book I have read by Sophie Dawson. This is Christian Historical Romantic Fiction at its best. I enjoy her descriptive writing and character development. Little 4-year-old Janie is precious; and, I laughed out loud at Beulah Taylor’s “illness.” The young English man thrust into the American Midwest is very well done and, of course, there is a happily ever after ending. I am looking forward to more books by Sophie Dawson.
