They are the ones who are not understood but the ones who are trying to make a life. Cade Fournette for years has tried to keep his family together but coming from Louisiana has not been easy. He has tried to be strong not weak or loose patience until he rescued one of the Sips residents. Coming back was supposed to be a time for him to heal not to connect with his past.

Imagine a life again where the people are separated, where you are labeled again. Welcome to Laura Trentham`s latest, Cottonbloom where one river separates everybody but the people are stuck in the past. We have Cade Fournette who all his life he has had to work hard for his family to stay together. Then we have Monroe Kirby who for years has never known how to be loved always in fear of danger. Two people who are from two different places share one thing together and that is to be loved. Laura Trentham enchanted me with this beautiful town to the characters even the Quilting Bees group who by all counts seem like just old fashioned gossipers but hillarious. Cannot wait for more from this beautiful town especially when it is more of the Fournettes.
