A Life Once Dreamed Takeover Tour

Welcome to the Takeover Tour for A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


A Life Once Dreamed
Title: A Life Once Dreamed 
Author: Rachel Fordham 
Publisher: Revell 
Release Date: August 4, 2020 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance 

Where you come from matters far less than where you're going 

Six years ago, a shocking secret sent Agnes Pratt running in search of a new start. She found it in Penance, a rugged town of miners and lumberjacks in the Dakota Territory. In the shadow of the Black Hills, she became Miss Aggie, respected schoolteacher and confirmed old maid--despite being only twenty-four. But the past has a way of catching up with people. 

When childhood friend and former sweetheart James Harris accepts a position as the town doctor, Aggie's pleasantly predictable days suddenly become anything but. James wants to know why Agnes left behind the life they had dreamed of creating for themselves--but he is precisely the one person who can never know. 

Can a healing light be shed on the past? Or will the secret Agnes can't seem to outrun destroy her chance at happiness?

Agnes & James grew up in Buffalo, New York as childhood friends and then fell in love. Prior to getting married, Agnes leaves for Penance to start a new life, carrying a secret with her. Six years later, James now a doctor, decides to move to Penance. Can they survive in the same town?

The characters, plot, and setting was wonderful. Parts of the story made me smile, cry, and laugh. I was hooked from the very beginning. This story had everything for a captivating read. Inspirational & Uplifting.

The story had mystery, a second chance at love, suspense, and lessons in what God's love can do. James learns that the family life he lived in Buffalo was flawed. He was prejudice and narrow-minded then but learns to set those traits aside in Penance. Highly recommended read.

I received a copy from the author and voluntarily choose to review it. All opinions are my own.


(1) winner will receive 3 books (The Hope of Azure Springs, Yours Truly, Thomas, and A Life Once Dreamed) by Rachel Fordham, book swag, and a set of corner bookmarks!
