Wild Horse Springs (Ransom Canyon, #5)Wild Horse Springs by Jodi Thomas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Series Ransom Canyon,book #5 "Wild Horse Springs" by Jodi Thomas



I have started reading this author again after some time apart. "Awesome stories that you want to read all in one setting BUT you put it down to savor those larger then life characters that Jodi puts in her stories. I loved this one with Dan Brigman the sheriff and Brandi Malone a beautiful young woman who sings from her heart.
There is a lot of adventure and mystery in this one and you are going to have so much fun coming along for the journey...
I had not read others in this series but you can bet your boots -I will be going back to find some.
Thanks Jodi for your amazing stories.

;West Winds of Wyoming (Prairie Hearts, #3)
West Winds of Wyoming by Caroline Fyffe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Series Prairie Hearts, book #3 "West Winds of Wyoming". by Caroline Fyffe.

I like reading stories our on the Prairies. This one tells the story of Feisty little lady Nell Page. Nell and her brother live and work the ranch alone and sometimes it is so hard that when widower Charlie Rose comes looking for work they need to hire him.
The Cotton Ranch is struggling and with the help of Charlie maybe they will be able to make the next mortgage payment.
the era of 1800's is a time when neighbors helped one another when they could. When a young girl comes in on the stage all alone and she is blind and not very talkative, the town comes together to help her.
Caroline writes a delightful story that keeps you wanting to read "just a little bit more",I know I did.

Amish Weddings (Neighbors of Lancaster County #3)Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Series Neighbors of Lancaster County book #3"Amish Weddings" by Leslie Gould


I have enjoyed reading this series, little different type amish book with neighbors being English and how their lives became intermingled with the amish.
At first it was hard trying to keep them apart when the children just wanted to play together and be friends.
Later there were some hard feelings when an amish girl falls hard for an english boy, He thinks they cannot be so he joins military and leaves for a time.
this book tells of Rose Lehman who has always wanted to marry Reuben who is the son of a bishop. When a young english man comes to town -she becomes ennamored by his good looks and charm and tells herself there is nothing wrong with being friends, then nothing wrong with flirting a little and before she knows it she is in over her head.
Reuben is a little older then Rose and once courted her sister who hurt him when she changed her mind about him. Rose finds him to be a wonderful man but he is quite and does not show affection much and as a young woman she craves the attention she gets from Trevor.
I wanted to yell at Rose a few times in the reading...

I received this book from Bethany House Publishling and have given my honest opinion of this book.

In the Field of GraceIn the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar


I enjoy reading Bibical fiction books and Tessa does a great job with research making us love the characters she creates from the ones found in the Bible.
Everyone knows the story in Hebrews about Ruth and Boaz....

These two in this book made me see them in a new way. After all..the people that walked the earth so many years ago were just like you and I, this story shows us they were human too.

Ruth had a difficult life with her family , one (Grandfather) made her life enjoyable -their bond was quite close and she was devastated when he died and left them.
soon after she married Mahlon and became close with her mother-in-law Naomi. He loved Ruth and taught her many things while they were together but times were hard in those days and their lives together were so different then what we know now.
Both he and his brother became ill with fever and when they died and the grief was so hard for Naomi and her daughters-in-laws,that she decided they should move back to Israel. Along the way she wanted the girls to return to their families and not go further but Ruth chose to stay . This is when we have her voice "Ruth insists upon staying with Naomi. "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you," Ruth tells Naomi. "Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."
After the journey they settled on lands of Naomi's husband and each day Ruth would go out and glean from the fields to help them live. Boaz had many fields and was a wealthy man in those days and when he saw Ruth working -he told his workers to leave some behind for her.
When Naomi saw that both Ruth and Boaz seemed to care for one another she wanted them to be together and she told Ruth to go lay at his feet and uncover them. once he saw that she had done this he knew she wanted him for a husband and he was pleased.
Reading the story of the love that these two shared is a wonderful story,Thanks Tessa for sharing your talant with us.
