Publisher's Summary

Caroline Fyffe returns to the windswept prairies of Wyoming with a beautiful story of rekindled love.... Thomas Donovan spent eight long years in prison, convicted of a crime he didn’t commit. Finally released, he returns home to Logan Meadows, Wyoming, to reclaim his life. What he finds, though, is his beloved family long gone and the townsfolk wary of an accused thief. The future looks bleak - until a former love becomes his unlikely champion in the community and reignites the fire in his guarded heart....

Hannah Hoskins was brokenhearted when Thom Donovan was sent away, but now the boy she loved has returned home a man - a man whom Hannah’s suitor, the town’s deputy sheriff, is determined to destroy. When a crime spree starts anew, suspicion immediately falls on Thom, and it’s up to Hannah to prove his innocence, earn him a second chance at life - and win them both a second chance at love.

Simple and tidy but heartwarming too

I got this book on sale and am glad I did. In any case, this book is well worth the point even if not on sale. What you see in this book is good character and story development . The story is heartwarming especially when everyone in the hero’s town began accepting him into their lives when they have every reason not to. The bullet in the head gets solved much too simply for my taste and without much effort at all but the rest of the story ties neatly into each other creating a very nice and easy listen. The narrator does a very good job in this western historical as well.

Very nice love/Wild West type story line.

What did you love best about Before the Larkspur Blooms?

The mix of love story with Wild West action

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tom

What does Patrick Lawlor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He went from male voice to female voice and made it believable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Tom woke from his coma. And asked Hannah to marry him.

Any additional comments?

Not only is the book very good, the author is a very wonderful person as well. I really enjoyed the listening.
