Review of Sandhill Dreams by Cara Putman

Back cover:
Lainie has no dreams left. She dreamed of becoming a nurse. Of serving her country. Of doing something important in the war. But rheumatic fever changed all that, and instead of running home, Lainie is determined to find a job at Fort Robinson in Nebraska's sandhills. Tom Hamilton had dreams, too. Dreams of preparing the horses at fort Robinson for duty n the warfront. Instead he is assigned to train war dos and their handlers, meaning that each day he must face the fears he's had of dogs since he was bitten as a child. Lainie and Tom wonder why God seems to have denied them their dreams. but it is possible new dreams will bring them more joy then ever imagined.

Sandhill dreams is the sequel to Canteen dreams but can definitely stand alone, Cara Putman has create a series of romance novels set during WWII. I have not read many historical novels set during this era and was intrigued by the idea. I loved the theme that sometimes the dream we have for ourselves is not the same as the plan God has for our lives. Cara does an amazing job at combining the historical elements of the novel with a delightdul, well written love story. You can find this novel with Heartsong Presents which provides a bookclub that delivers four books a month for a small fee. Each month they send two historical novels and two contempory novels.
