Book Review-The Brightest of Dreams

25 Apr

The Brightest of Dreams was written by Susan Anne Mason, and is book three in the Canadian Crossings series.

Summary: This third book follows Quinten Aspinall, and his desperate search for his siblings. Upon returning from war, he finds they have been sent from England to Canada to serve as indentured servants when their mother could no longer care for them.

Determined to reunite his family, he immediately books passage to find them. His employer tasks him with another mission on his journey-to find his estranged niece Julia, and bring her back to England. His reward? A farm of his own where his family can all be together at last.

Will Quinten be able to locate his siblings, and bring Julia Holloway back to England? He has to try-if only to fulfill the promise to his dying father to look after the family and keep them safe.

My Thoughts: This was a great book. I have enjoyed the others in the series as well, and I am not sure I could pick a favorite. It is definitely not necessary to have read the previous books in order to enjoy this one, but they are all worth the read.

I really liked the characters, the storyline was well-done, I enjoyed the romance, and it was a fitting conclusion to the series as a whole. I also enjoyed learning more about the history behind the mass migration of English children to Canada during this time period.

It is a good read, and I recommend it! Another great book by Susan Anne Mason.

I would like to thank Bethany House Publishers for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!
