Every author loves it when her books garner praise, and so I'm delighted to share the following with you.
In Cabot's Westward Winds series starter, readers will enjoy reading through the story's twists and turns. The characters are an interesting bunch; some of them are quirky, some are serious, but all have a story to share. With each book, Cabot writes something new and fresh.

In this beautifully written story of love and redemption and following God's plans, the reader is invited into a world of adventure, love and forgiveness from past pain. I especially like that, though this story does have a love story threaded through it, that is not the most dominant point of the story. This makes the unfolding love story all the more believable and likable. The author spends much time with character development, looking at the heart and and thoughts of the characters instead of focusing on an outward love. So the love the reader sees developed is one that is based on a mutual journey into God's plans and and acceptance of His grace and forgiveness.
With a perfect mix of romance, suspense and discovery of faith, Amanda Cabot brings us a bright new series featuring three sisters raised in the East.

I am already looking forward to the next installment of Westward Winds.
