Another good one-Historical fiction, Christian romance. No sex, violence, bad language.

Wow, Wow, Wow!!!

Talk about a beautiful written story. I loved this! It took me back to when I was a child and my great grandmother told me stories of her pioneering days. It's full of adventure, faith and history. A great tale. Was hard to put down. This is a good one for any age.

A lovely look back at an exciting period in our countries history.

This well written story includes memorable characters that I soon loved. They were taught lessons in courage and forgiveness and understanding a loving Heavenly Father.

Recommended to Melinda by: Enjoyed the author's book NICKELS, a Christian contemporary romance
Karen Baney has crafted an inspirational and heart-warming Christian Historical Romance in her debut novel, A Dream Unfolding (Prescott Pioneers #1). She covers wagon train rides, cattle drives, and military expeditions – oh my! Her research of these true events is evident by both the author's descriptive details of setting throughout the book in the different places of Ohio, Texas, and Arizona, and by Baney accurately illustrating many of the challenges pioneers encountered during the 1860s.

Hannah and Drew Anderson were upstanding citizens in Cincinnati, Ohio. Drew was a doctor and had all the patients he needed to make a good living for him and his wife and hopefully children the would have. Hannah loved being Drew's wife and could hardly wait to become a Mother. Until that time she kept busy helping her husband out in his practice whenever needed, even if it meant ruining meals and having to start over at the drop of a hat. They had many good friends and thought they would always ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was a break from the books I have been reading lately. I have always had a soft spot for either books with cowboys or books that have people in covered wagons traveling to a land unknown to them other than the recomendation they might read in a newspaper by someone who was supposed to have made the trip there and knew the land. It is always a situation where the people who decide to pick up and move, in this case Hannah has to go with her husband, as that is what t ...more

What an interesting story! This a story about a couple heading out west to start a new life away from the problems they were dealing with in Ohio. Dr. Drew Anderson and his wife Hannah had nice home and lots of friends until the day that Drew's brother caused trouble and got put in jail. The town then reacted poorly to Drew and his wife, so they decided to pack up and head out to Arizona to start a new clinic and a new dream.

Then there was the story of Will. His parents both passed away and that

Review first debuted on

A Dream Unfolding is a delightful debut novel! I enjoyed this book immensely though I am not a fan of westerns, which this book reminded me of. This historical fiction takes place in 1800’s America, during the Civil War and Arizona’s statehood. While I was clearly aware of the plot set up from the very beginning, there were a few surprises, in terms of its execution, along the way. Here is the skinny on this title.

Setting – Perfect! T
