A Time to Bloom, Leahs Garden, Book 2, by Lauraine Snelling
- Author: Lauraine Snelling
- With: Kiersti Giron
The Nielsen sisters got quite a bit accomplished over the last year, traveling west and settling in Nebraska. They're well on their way to rebuilding their mother's garden, and their excitement blossoms when they get a letter from their brother Anders saying he's coming for a visit with a friend from the war. Yet, none of that can conceal their concern that they're quickly running low on money. Del's work teaching in town gives them hope, not only to support her sisters, but also to better her students' lives. Not everyone sees it that way, though, with the town lagging on rebuilding the schoolhouse and her brightest student's father demanding he work the farm instead of learn. An invasion of grasshoppers only makes matters worse.
When Anders comes with his war-wounded friend RJ, he witnesses the strength of the sisters' idea to create a boardinghouse with the train coming to town. He invests in it and suggests RJ build it. Del finds RJ barely polite and wants nothing to do with him. Despite Del and her sisters' best-laid plans, the future, and RJ, might surprise them all.
