    One thought on “Scattered Petals”

    1. Two people running from a past they long to forget, can love conquer the barriers they have erected around their hearts While you don t need to have read Paper Roses the first book in the series to understand Scattered Petals, I believe you will have a better appreciation for the characters and their town in this second book if you do Scattered Petals picks up right where Paper Roses left off only with primarily new characters Different variables played into this story From a town that refuses t [...]

    2. This book wasn t paticulary compelling I find Amanda Cabbot s writing just okay I found myself frustrated by the characters than anything else And the story did not ring true yes, I realize that this is fiction But the best fiction is a story that could happen and the characters could exist I found the characters and the story and situations implausable And I haven t even touched on her theology Plenty lacking there

    3. Priscilla Morton and her parents are on their way to Ladreville Texas, to see her brother in law widower of her older sister get married However just outside of San Antonio disaster strikes, when the stage coach is robbed and her parents are murdered, and Priscilla is raped and nearly killed Thanks to a Texas Ranger she is not killed, but she is definitely not the same young lady who started this trip.In her brother in laws home, Priscilla discovers that the horrendous act of rape has left her b [...]

    4. I grabbed this because the cover was so pretty and didn t realize it was a second book in a series until I was past the point of being able to put it down.I really enjoyed the characters depth in this and probably would read a dozen books about this charming Texas town with great enjoyment Content caution has mention of murder and rape, but tactfully described.

    5. The back cover summary Longing for adventure, Priscilla Morton leaves Boston in 1856 and heads for the Texas Hill Country, never dreaming that the adventure she seeks could have heartbreaking consequences Although attracted to her, the ranch foreman, Zachary Webster knows Priscilla deserves a cultured East Coast gentleman , not a cowboy who s haunted by memories of his mistakes When necessity draws them together, Priscilla and Zach begin to forge a life filled with promise But then the past intr [...]

    6. What a beautiful cover this book has, and an appropriate one at that with beauty and sadness of expression Scattered Petals is the sequel and second book in a trilogy starting with Paper Roses, yet could easily be appreciated on it s own merit as a stand alone Bringing together two very different yet painful pasts God uses different characters to allow healing and hope for a future This story gives a great deal of visual insight into the mind of a madman as well as a hint of depression and pain [...]

    7. I discovered Amanda Cabot when I read Paper Roses, the first book in this series, and eagerly awaited this sequel Although Scattered Petals can easily be enjoyed on its own merits, my enjoyment was increased because I felt a kinship to the people of Ladreville, Texas, whom I d grown to love But this was definitely a new romance centered on two wounded people, both of whom had suffered great tragedy My heart went out to Priscilla from the beginning, and kind, caring Zach earned my immediate respe [...]

    8. I can not get enough of Amanda Cabot s novels They are wonderful, clean, romantic, westerns that touch the heart She is a new author to me so I have just read a few of her stories Believe me I can t wait to read She captures you within the first paragraph and does not let you go until you are closing the book And maybe even then I would recommend if you have not tried Amanda Cabot s books, you are missing out.

    9. Great books.You are a wonderful writer Once you get start reading it s hard to put down God is good all the time.

    10. I enjoyed this Christian fiction western romance and liked both Priscilla and Zach They both had things in their past to overcome so they could move on with their lives Karen s review

    11. I liked how the story took its time The author made everything realistic, and the emotions weren t forced.

    12. Amanda Cabot certainly knows how to weave an incredible story When I read her first book, Paper Roses, last year, I completely fell in love with her writing The way she created the most beautiful love story between Sarah and Clay was so romantic, it gave me goose bumps Because of that, it was a no brainer that I would eventually read her second novel, Scattered Petals.While I recommend that any series of books be read in order, Scattered Petals was a book that was easily read as a stand alone no [...]

    13. There s something about arranged or convenient marriages that makes for a great story Without fail, it s always fun to watch the aftermath of these situations as two people slowly fall in love with each other, in the midst of their marriage In this case Priscilla s trauma adds a unique twist to the typical situation, as she can t stand the thought of a man s touch not even something as little as holding hands for fear of the horrific memories it evokes.Generally I don t pick up books that involv [...]

    14. Amanda Cabot in her new book, Scattered Petals Book Two in the Texas Dreams series published by Revell takes us back to the town of Ladreville This book picks up at the end of the first book in the series, Paper Roses and Priscilla Morton is coming to Ladreville to see the wedding of Clay Canfield to Sarah.Clay was originally married to Patience, Priscilla s sister but she died in the first book when they came to Texas Now Clay is remarrying and has invited the Mortons to attend Priscilla, wanti [...]

    15. Today s Book is a Christian Fiction Novel written by Amanda Cabot whom must have a soft spot for Texas and Flowers Today readers, I bring you the second book in her series of Texas Dreams Scattered Petals in reference to the flowers line her first book was called Paper Roses.Scattered Petals earns it title as within the book , their is a page where lead character Priscilla is reminiscing and notes that if you pull all the petals off a rose and place it in water , though they will change colour t [...]

    16. Paper Roses Texas Dreams, bk 1 was my first experience reading Amanda Cabot s writing, and I found it to be pretty boring, and it moved really slow Scattered Petalsturned out to be a lot better, in my opinion It held my interest much , and moved right along.We meet Priscilla Morton as she is travelling with her parents to attend her brother in law, Clay Canfield s, wedding An unfortunate tragedy, along the way, changes Priscilla s life forever, and also gives her a debilitating fear of men She i [...]

    17. This is book 2 in the Texas Dreams series It can be read as a stand alone because past events from book 1, Paper Roses, are summarized but I would recommend reading Paper Roses first There is a cast of continuing characters and I think this story can best be appreciated by reading Paper Roses In this story, Priscilla is the sister in law to Clay the hero from Paper Roses She and her parents are traveling to Texas to attend his wedding In a tragic turn of events, her parents are murdered and Pris [...]

    18. I fell in love with the characters and location from Paper Roses so it wasn t hard to plunk down the money for the second book in the series Not surprisingly our hero and heroine do take a backseat to the new protagonists but they are there just enough to make it special But the book still stands capable of being a standalone story without any trouble at all Pricilla Morton is Clay Canfield s former sister in law from the first book and she and her parents are traveling to attend Sarah and Clay [...]

    19. Scattered Petals, Amanda Cabot Very well written love story Amanda Cabot did an excellent job of bringing to life the characters in this book One can not help but feel the stomach churning pain of young Prischilla Morton, or the agony of the weight of unforgiveness that has bound Zach Webster There are so many twist and turns that the reader is on an emotional roller coaster However, throughout the book is the thread that God s hand is always there He never leaves nor forsakes his precious child [...]

    20. I enjoy reading the Christian fiction genre The stories tend to be on the gentle side, making them a peaceful retreat from the language, violence and bare skin that laces many other books and tv shows However, due to their publishing and moral restraints, they can come off as a bit dull I ve read than a few that advertise Tragic or Suspenseful on the covers but the worst the heroine suffers is a twisted ankle and the most suspenseful moment is whether or not Mrs Crumb s souffle deflates before [...]

    21. Wow I ll be honest, this book has an opening that will grab you in unexpected ways.Cabot weaves a tale that includes pain, tragedy and redemption through her main two characters their families Hard to read at times because of the story line the book definitely shows you how God can work in a person s life, despite the choices other people make got to love free will.Even though this was book 2 of the series, it stood alone Which was good because I haven t read the first book.The way Cabot crafts [...]

    22. It took me about 100 pages until I was really into this book It was difficult for me to relate to and understand the main character, Priscilla, for a while, but as I got to know her I grew to admire her I think it was tough because she faced tragedy within the first 20 pages, and of course that affected her personality She withdrew quite a bit, but since I didn t really have a chance to get to know her before this horrible event occurred, it was hard for me to fully understand the extent of her [...]

    23. I feel like I rate everything 4 stars nowadays Hrrmm Well, I really liked it The first chapter I was like, Ummm HOLY CRAP, TELL ME THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN WOW Was NOT expecting that Anyway, I don t want to give anything away, because WOW, but I really liked the hero and heroine Priscilla worst name ever, btw was well her issues were 100% understandable She was really courageous, all things considered And I loved Zach His issues also make sense as the story progresses Really, they re perfect for [...]

    24. This book was better than it s predecessor, Paper Roses, but only barely worth the 4 star rating I gave it It was interesting to see how Christian women in the 1800s coped with rape and the resulting pregnancy I was able to easily identify with Priscilla, and Zach was a wonderful gentleman hero We re also able to see how other characters in the town of Ladreville are and how the hero and heroine of the previous book are faring in their relationship This book also introduces the hero of the third [...]

    25. Happiness Perspective or ProvidenceAmanda Cabot delivers another enthralling tale set on the 1856 Texas frontier The characters, beset by emotional and physical struggles are pulled in multiple directions The descriptive writing is excellent and easily visualized The story line is twisted, fascinating to see unfold.Priscilla Morton longed for adventure When she convinces her parents to make a cross country journey to attend a wedding, she is filled with excitement When the destination is finally [...]

    26. I always enjoy stories based around a marriage of convenience so I was looking forward to reading this book Although the story starts on a tragic note, you are not left with a heavy feeling at the end I felt that the jump from Priscilla not wanting to be even slightly touched ie assisted onto a horse by any man including her husband to her wanting to become a real wife was too quick It would have been believable to me if she would have slowly allowed casual touches and then gradually made the m [...]

    27. I thought Scattered Petals was a clean well written Christian Romance A nice follow up to Scattered Petals Slight Reveal The only thing I didn t like was that I thought the heroine got over her fear of men her hubby too suddenly and it didn t happen till the end of the book I thought it should have been a bit gradual I would have liked it better if there was SOME contact between the two throughout the story I liked the hero and thought the end result of his story was well written I look forward [...]

    28. I really love a well written historical novel, and Amanda Cabot fits the bill with her Texas Dreams series I had forgotten how much I grew to enjoy the community and characters in Ladreville, until I started reading this book It was nice to find out about Zach, and I enjoyed meeting Priscilla.I loved the reminder that God can work ALL things for the good of them that love Him even horrible things that seem like they would only ever be tragedies It made me reflect on my own life, and how God has [...]

    29. I was so excited to read this book after reading Paper Roses.I read a sample and honestly got sad I couldn t read When I finally purchased the book to read let me tell you I was not disappointed.Zachary and Priscilla s story is difficult, yet heartwarming It is hard to imagine what one would be feeling after what Priscilla went through but the author takes you there as if you are right there in the pagesowing how God can mend the most broken hearts.I loved this story and was glad to read that S [...]
