"a time to bloom" by lauraine snelling with kiersti gironnis the second book in her 'leah's garden' series. i have been a fan of lauraine snelling's books for many years and this did not disappoint. i love the stories set back in time and it was fun to read about a story settled in my home state of nebraska.
this story is about how delphinium nielsen (knows as 'del') and her sisters are struggling to run a farm and keep a garden alive to survive. they are financially strapped even with 'del' teaching school. she is having to deal with parents who believe their children are better served working on their family farms than going to school.
del and her sisters' brother returns from war with a friend rj. rj believes in the school and wants to help, but there is tension between him and del. i won't give away the rest of the story, but this was fun to read and i look forward to the rest of the series.
i received this book digitally from net galley to read and give my honest review.
