If Two Wounded Souls Can Find Healing,
Love May Not Be Far Behind
Widower Dr. Matthew Clayborne is devoted to two things: his work with wounded soldiers and his four-year-old daughter, Phoebe. When Deirdre O'Leary, a feisty New Yorker, arrives in Toronto requesting he use his skills to help her stricken mother, he won't abandon either of these priorities to care for one older woman. However, when his daughter suffers a health scare and needs a respite, Deirdre offers a trade--they can escape to the peace of her family's farm, if he will care for Mrs. O'Leary.
Matthew agrees for his daughter's sake, but is intent on staying as short a time as necessary. The sojourn at Irish Meadows does wonders for Phoebe, and as she begins to flourish, Matthew finds himself drawn to the O'Learys, especially to the captivating Deirdre. But since he has no intention of leaving his life up north forever, and Deirdre has sworn off marriage in favor of her career, how will they deal with the undeniable attraction between them?

This book was amazing! I loved everything about it! It was bittersweet because I had to say goodbye to this family. When your reading a series with a family in it, you become attached to them. Five stars to Susan Anne Mason's Love's Faithful Promise! A true heartwarming and delightful book!
I received a copy off this book from the publisher for my honest and unbiased opinion.
My only problem with this book is that Connor's story suffers presented directly next to Dee's. First, Connor's story is the "female protagonist who dresses like a boy to get a job in a stable and is far more gifted at horse training than all the other stable men at a horse farm that trains the best of the best" story. It's not done badly here, but given that Dee's story is not cookie cutter, it makes Connor's story seem that much more so.
I get the author's dilemma. The other books already have the two siblings for the price of one thing going on, but Dee's story could have been its own book, and Connor's would have been fine as a closure novella, ending with the final POV from James. We'd have been perfectly content to end this one with Dee and Matthew's final private chit chat and embrace, which wrapped up that rather lovely story just fine.
Final thought: Matthew is a mess. All manner of pain and anxiety and self-blame. Thank you, Ms. Mason, for not trying to convince us that could all be fixed in four weeks, even if it was obvious the first time Dee had to move all his stuff and wipe the dust off the chair to sit down to talk to him (see? I see what you did there) that if anyone could convince him to stop living in the past and make room for love again, it would be her. I also appreciated the convincing chemistry. I wouldn't have believed that Dee would settle for less.
Deirdre O'Leary is determined to convince Dr. Matthew Clayborne, renowned for his progressive approach to physical therapy, that he must travel back to Irish Meadows and coax her mother back to full health after Kathleen's nearly paralyzing stroke. Postponing her own aspiring medical career, travelling from Long Island to Toronto, Canada in order to meet with Dr. Clayborne face-to-face, Deirdre matches the dour doctor's excuses with every tool of persuasion in her arsenal, but in the end, the decision hinges on improving the health of the doctor's young daughter, Phoebe.
Matthew Clayborne does not intend to disrupt his life simply to appease a wealthy New Yorker with a sick wife; his patients, mostly veterans of war, are more important to him. After facing off with the fiery, but quite beautiful, Deirdre, Matthew reluctantly makes arrangements to privately treat Mrs. O'Leary, on the condition that the therapy will be on a trial basis. He fully intends to return to Toronto, putting Irish Meadows and Deirdre O'Leary's dazzling smile and compassionate heart completely out of his mind. But there is more than one person on Long Island who desperately needs to feel the touch of God's merciful healing hand, and it isn't Kathleen O'Leary.
Susan Anne Mason has written a beautiful conclusion to her three book series, not only penning a breath-holding romance between Deirdre and Matthew, but including a clever parallel story surrounding Connor O' Leary and his own unexpected rodeo of love.
