Love leads them to a lifetime of commitment where the dreams they have held onto for so long start to come true.

Popular and eligible, Logan De Witt must convince the women in town that he is engaged to be married. A quiet, simple ceremony is what he has in mind for his wedding day, but when the date and time of his bride’s arrival is published in the newspaper, the whole town joins in the celebration proving to Logan and his new wife their sincere friendship and support. Added to the excitement of Logan’s marriage is the question of what the congregation should do with the unexpected donation of an orchard.

Karen Millerson is counting the days until her long-distance engagement comes to an end and she may travel to Oswell City to marry Logan. More than anything, she wants to share in his life as a help and support, but keeping a house and finding her place in the community requires much more work than she ever expected.

Learn, laugh, and love with Karen and Logan as they start a new marriage and work together ministering to the citizens of their small town.

MY THOUGHTS.....

This is the third book in the Tomorrow series and it's a lovely way to continue the story of Logan De Witt and Karen Millerson as they begin a life together in Oswell City, Iowa during the early part of the 20th century. As their romance develops, Pastor Logan and teacher Karen endure many trials and their engagement is even kept a secret for awhile, but finally, it's time to plan a wedding! Will Logan and Karen experience a calm, loving existence as man and wife? Can they work together to minister to the people of this small town?

Author Michelle De Bruin successfully conveys Logan's efforts to serve his congregation while adjusting to married life and she captures Karen's desire to live up to their rural community's expectations of a minister's wife. Many situations that are acceptable in today's society were often frowned upon in 1911 and there is often humor in this depiction of another era. The characters are well-developed and I recommend Dreaming of Tomorrow to all who appreciate historical Christian romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
