Catherine Whitfield is sure that she will never again be able to trust anyone in the medical profession after the town doctor’s excessive bleeding treatments killed her mother. Despite her loneliness and her broken heart, she carries bravely on as Cimarron Creek’s dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family, a life where dreams rarely come true.

Austin Goddard is a newcomer to Cimarron Creek. Posing as a rancher, he fled to Texas to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He’s managed to keep his past as a surgeon a secret. But when Catherine Whitfield captures his heart, he wonders how long he will be able to keep up the charade.

With a deft hand, Amanda Cabot teases out the strands of love, deception, and redemption in this charming tale of dreams deferred and hopes becoming reality.

A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot is charming, funny, & heart wrenching. Cabot gives her characters enough depth that the reader is always looking forward to the next page. While A Borrowed Dream may take place in a time of slower travel, there isn’t anything else slow about it.

 I mentioned it was charming, right? I just wanted to make sure that I threw that out there because my poor heart needed this book! Cabot draws this stunning picture of love that isn’t often seen in today’s time. While she gives the characters their own problems & lives, she also ties them into a community & family that help each other. She shows the reader that through God, anything can be accomplished — including the life or death situations throughout the novel. A Borrowed Dream is a beautiful story that makes the reader adore each and every aspect of a small Texas town called Cimarron Creek.

 In reading the book, there were a few things that caught threw me off balance. The starting date was the main one. Personally, having only one date on the first page confused me for a good while. It helps the reader keep a timeline throughout the story, but I felt as if I needed to write down every time a month or two randomly passed. Having more frequent dates at the start of chapters would have helped. The other thing was the dreams/flashbacks. At times, these were so entwined into the story that I wasn’t sure what had really happened. “How did I get here? What did I miss?” The pieces of the story are needed, but dreams & flashbacks might have been indented or italicize to help the reader along. Neither of these are massive problems & probably border on being a preference instead of a pitfall.

 When all is said & done…you need this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who fancies Hallmark type books or even anyone who just finished an intense book! Cabot’s novels are the perfect in between book that we all crave as readers! 



Amanda Cabot is the bestselling author of A Stolen Heart, the first book of the Cimarron Creek trilogy, as well as the Texas Crossroads series, the Texas Dreams series, the Westward Winds series, and Christmas Roses.

  1. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my book. I’m absolutely delighted that you enjoyed it so much. And, thanks too for the suggestion that dream sequences be italicized. My project editor and I’ve discussed that — I prefer italics, she doesn’t — but having your comment may convince her that they’re needed. Thanks!
