This week, the


Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing


A Lady Like Sarah
Thomas Nelson; Original edition (December 22, 2009)
by
Margaret Brownley


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this, except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction."

It turns out God was and Margaret did. She now has more than 20 novels to her credit. In addition, she's written many Christian articles and a non-fiction book. Still, it took a lot of prodding from God before Margaret tried her hand at writing inspirational fiction which led to her Rocky Creek series. "I love writing about characters at different stages of faith," she says of the new direction her writing career has taken, "and I'm here to stay."

Happily married to her real-life hero, Margaret and her husband live in Southern California.

ABOUT THE BOOK



Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life; just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot straight.

Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying US Marshall at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.

His high society expectations and Sarah's outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and a sweet orphan in tow, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There justice will be meted out hopefully with a portion of grace.

My Review

This book is exactly as described above. Good solid writing that results in an easy-reading page turner. Lots of action and drama and Indians and outlaws as you'd expect in a historical western. An unlikely romance between two imperfect but lovable characters. Add a baby to the mix. And life-changing moments as she realizes God's intervention in her life and he realizes his calling. All culminating in a miracle that only God could bring about.

If you like western romances with a Christian bent, you won't be disappointed...
