In Growing His Dream, Lachlan finds himself on his own at seventeen after his mother passes away. At first the minister takes him in, but there’s a problem and soon Lachlan finds himself in front of the congregation while the minister explains his predicament and the fact that he needs a home. No one comes forward. I know this sounds incredibly Dickensian, but it was inspired by real events. I have friends. Their children are grown now, but that happened to him, only he was sitting in the congregation as a pair of twelve year old twins stood up front needing a home. This friend stood up and took the boys home. He adopted them and made them part of his family. They are wonderful men and Larry is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever known. Just imagine how big his heart is. I hope I write my characters with that kind of heart.
Sequel to Planting His Dream
Planting Dreams: Book Two
Love can grow in even the harshest conditions.
Life has been a struggle for Lachlan Buttar ever since his mother passed away and left him unprepared to take care of himself. He’s gone from homeless to staying with a local minister, but it soon becomes clear he will be better off, and safer, on his own. Fortunately Foster and Javi agree to take Lachlan in and offer him a real home on their dairy farm.
It’s there that Lachlan meets another of the workers, local farmer Abe Armitage. Though the attraction between them is instant, Abe refuses to act on it until Lachlan returns his interest. By then, strong feelings have taken root, and a passionate romance quickly blossoms. But both men carry baggage that could crush any chance of happiness together, particularly since Lachlan witnessed a crime, and there are those who will do anything to make sure he cannot reveal what he’s seen.
