This is one of the finest examples of the effects of post traumatic stress syndrome this reader/reviewer has ever read. Rarely do I ever hope for the best in a heroine who had suffered so much since being orphaned at the age of 12 and suffered cruelly under the hands of her twisted older brother. Escaping for her life with a fractured arm, ribs and facial injuries at the hands of her brother, she is broken physically and emotionally and it falls on the good doctor to bring her healing and trust. Forced into an unwanted marriage to protect both of their reputations, Sterling seeks God's will in bringing Lydia back to wholeness in tiny increments.
Along the way, we meet the people of Cottonwood who unwittingly forced a marriage between two total strangers as well as those who befriend Lydia and seek to love her, build her trust, and give her a sense of community and belonging.
Will Sterling and Lydia's relationship stand the test of an unwanted but forced marriage? Will Lydia's demented brother, who is furious at Lydia's escape, track her down and seek revenge? Will the good doctor Graham's practice permanently suffer because of the rumors and suspicions of the community? Will the love of God prevail in these seemingly insurmountable obstacles?
I was hooked from the first page of this compelling Christian Western romance and will eagerly seek more stories from Cottonwood.
She goes as far as her money will take her then things happen. The beginning there is a lot of gossiping, one person says something then is retold with added stuff. Those who know about gossip knows what I am saying. This is one of the main issues of this story - gossip & what it leads to and despite what others may think, love does happen and she is gradually healed of distrust.
--Unfortunately, most of this Gossip comes from those who call themselves Christian ---
---No I will not tell you anymore - if I did you would not need to read this book. -- So hopefully you are like me and you want to find out for yourself just what this book is all about. ----- You will not be disappointed.
I have two other major critiques. First, the way characters (even the town sheriff) regularly quote not one, but several verses of the Bible WITH CHAPTER AND VERSE is unrealistic. The pastor, yes, everybody else, no. Not that laypeople can’t do that, but they just don’t. Two, the author needs to go over the text two more times, at two- to three-week intervals, with her eyeballs and a text-to-speech function at the same time in order to do a better job of editing.
That said, if you’re looking for a story that will help you relax and improve your mood, this is a good one.
