I was surprised at how much I loved Waiting for Spring. I tend not to read period books, but had previously read one of Amanda Cabot's books and enjoyed it so much that I had to read this one as well.
Charlotte is a widow with a young child who has had such a rough time of it with losing her husband and having to hide her true identity to keep her family safe. She is sweet and so kind-hearted. I instantly fell in love with her. She is a mother who fiercely protects her child almost to a fault due to his blindness, but through the story realizes that she isn't alone. I love how she takes care of the people in her life from her son to the older man who owns the general store. She is so generous and helps those who others would frown upon her doing so. She is strong in her faith and it shows in how she lives her life.

About the Book
After the loss of her husband and the birth of her baby, Charlotte has had a long, hard year. But when a notorious robber believes she knows the location of a long-lost treasure, she flees to Cheyenne and opens a dressmaker's shop to lie low and make a living. When wealthy cattle baron and political hopeful Barrett Landry enters the shop to visit her best customer, Charlotte feels drawn to him.
If Barrett is to be a senator of the soon-to-be state of Wyoming, he must make a sensible match, and Miriam has all the right connections. Yet he can't shake the feeling that Charlotte holds the key to his heart and his future.
Soon the past comes to call, and Barrett's plans crumble around him. Will Charlotte and Barrett find the courage to look love in the face? Or will their fears blot out any chance for happiness?
