When the carriage pulled up to the house, Rose knew she would receive a reprimand from her mother. “So I skipped another social event.” Maybe mother will be so busy with her ladies club, and she won’t have time to talk to me about my responsibility as a Lane.
“Ms. Lane you ready?”
George was holding the carriage door open, waiting. “Ms. Rose, you know she ain’t gonna let you stay in this carriage all day. She be watching from the window.”
“I know, but I will never be what Mother and Father want.”
“Well that’s between you, God, and your folks, but right now you better get inside and see what you can do to unruffle Mrs. Lane’s feathers.”
As a little girl, I once attended a party where there was a puppet show. A man had strings tied to little dolls to control them. When ever he moved the sticks with strings tied to them, the little dolls would move in the direction he wanted. I sometimes feel like I have become a puppet, and my parents are pulling the strings.
Can dreams really come true in Texas? They did for Brody Rose Lane and Austin Bradshaw in Texas Dreams 1 but will that happen for Bella Bradshaw and Thadd Harding in Texas Dreams 2: Bella, My Heart’s Desire?
Bella and Thadd have been courting for some time, but life does not always go as you have it planned out. Our plan and God’s are not always the same. Can Bella turn Thadd into the rancher that she wants and not the Texas Ranger that life gives him? Will they learn from their mistakes and correct the error of their ways, or will pride bring them down and let another man take Thadd’s place? Can an old rancher take advice from a young woman who only wants to help, or has he given up on life completely?
