Review: Tomorrow’s Shining Dream by Naomi Rawlings

Tomorrow's Shining DreamWhat a wonderful addition to the Texas Promise series. I loved book one in this series, Tomorrow’s First Light, and now I love book two, as well! If you haven’t read book one in the series, don’t worry, you can jump right in and enjoy Tomorrow’s Shining Dream anyway.

Charlotte and Daniel…what a great pair of main characters. I felt so bad for Daniel, as he loved Charlotte and was trying to do what he thought was best for her by hiding his feelings. And Charlotte was so conflicted about what her duty to her father and her family ranch was. I enjoyed watching as her eyes began to open regarding her true feelings.

I loved this story from start to finish and eagerly await the next book in the series.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Tomorrow's Shining DreamShe needs to learn how to flirt. He needs to forget she exists. Then she asks him for help finding a husband… What could possibly go wrong?

Charlotte Westin has always been more comfortable in a saddle than a ballroom. That wouldn’t be a problem, except her father owns the largest ranch in Texas—and he insists she marry a wealthy city-slicker worthy of a cattle baron’s daughter. There might be someone out there who’d love her for who she is instead of her money, but she’s been fooled by a sweet talker before, and her family is still suffering because of it.

With an old friend-turned-enemy returning to town and cattle rustlers running roughshod over the county, Sheriff Daniel Harding knows the last thing he should be thinking about is a woman… especially the one woman he’ll never be able to marry. Then Charlotte Westin asks for his help, and Daniel can’t refuse. Until he finds out exactly what she wants…

When Charlotte comes to Daniel with a plan to find herself a husband, Daniel is forced to face his feelings for her—as well as some past mistakes of his own. But as the rustlers grow more dangerous, Charlotte’s father takes drastic steps to engage her to a man she doesn’t love. And Charlotte and Daniel soon find themselves caught between the burdens from their pasts and others’ expectations. Will they let their past choices ruin their dreams? Or will Charlotte and Daniel embrace God’s forgiveness and forge a happy future for themselves?

From jagged mountains and green river valleys, to cattle ranches and vivid sunsets, Tomorrow’s Shining Dream offers a meaningful story about simpler times, sincere faith, and unfailing love.

Naomi Rawlings

Naomi Rawlings is the author of eleven historical Christian novels, including the reader-favorite Eagle Harbor Series. Her novels have been short-listed for three different publishing awards, and she enjoys writing uplifting books set in simpler times, but with real characters who work through the trials of their faith to find strength and love—both with each other, and in the arms of a kind God.

Naomi lives with her husband and three children in Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula, where they get an average of twenty-one feet of snow every winter. Even with the snow, she enjoys residing in the wilderness and raising her kids in an environment that lets them walk to the river to fish, explore the woods, and ride their bikes to Lake Superior. She also loves living an area where people still grow their own vegetables and cut down their own firewood—just like in the historical novels she writes.
