Share Your Memory of a Car that Played an Important Role in Your Life’s Story for a Chance to Win a $100 Gas Card or One of 10 Copies of Waiting for Morning by Margaret Brownley
Margaret Brownley, New York Times bestselling author of the Brides of the Last Chance Ranch series, has a knack for writing incredible characters with loads of charm. In her upcoming novel, Waiting for Morning, it’s the character made of metal and bolts who steals scenes in this charming book.
In Waiting for Morning, an historical romance set in the Arizona Territory in 1896, Dr. Caleb Fairbanks introduces the residents of the Last Chance Ranch to his beloved steam-powered “horseless carriage,” Bertha. This foreign contraption divides townspeople’s opinions between fascination and irritation thanks to Bertha’s incessant rattling and backfiring. When Caleb and backfiring Bertha incite gunfire from former dance hall girl, Molly Hatfield, the handsome doctor knows he’s in for an adventure with the intriguing woman and her spirited, wheelchair bound kid brother, Donny.
People’s love affair with their vehicles began when the first car hit the road in the 19th century. Since then, precious memories abound for this man and metal connection from the town car that delivered a bride to her waiting prince to the minivan bringing home a young couple’s first bundle of joy.
