~ MY REVIEW ~
Well, now… what a pleasant introduction to a new-to-me author! 🙂
I really wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book, but someone recommended her writing to me and I think I found this book for free on Amazon… so I figured I’d go ahead and give it a try. And I don’t know what gave me this idea, but for some reason I thought this was a novella so I was rather surprised to discover that it’s over 300 pages long. A nice surprise considering I don’t think this story could have been well told in a novella-size book.
I enjoyed the spiritual journey these characters take. Throughout the book, I was kinda hoping there would be more focus on Reese dealing with his spiritual & emotional struggles. And there at the end, I was satisfied.
Dee realizing that most of her preconceptions weren’t accurate is entertaining and also makes you think. Reese’s family was just fantastic and I would love to read more about them. And I’m still not quite sure what I think of Alex… but I’d love to see him get his own story. But perhaps he already has one? I shall have to go check this author’s page and find out. 😉
This wasn’t a super fast read for me, but it wasn’t slow either– it’s a good steady read that I enjoyed. 🙂
I know this isn’t much of a review, but I’m kinda struggling for time here…

~ SOME FAVORITE QUOTES ~
The soft song from the past threatened to awaken feelings and memories she avoided like black-eyed peas and family reunions.
She placed her hands on her hips and stared hard enough to wipe his smile clean off his face. “You could have called me. Said something like” –she put on her best imitation– “I ain’t got no time to meet with you today, Doc. I gotta go birth a cow.”
Reese’s grin stretched wide. “You do that real good. Makes me like you more.”
Dee – If you’re right about God being a father and holding us in his hands, then He has a lot of explaining to do.
Reese – I’m pretty sure He can handle all of your questions.
Dee – How about my anger?
Reese – I have firsthand knowledge He can handle that too. The real question, Doc, is if you can handle His answers.
Lou – I’m going to be a princess that fights dragons. Ain’t no good to sit up in your tower and watch the prince have all the fun.
Lou appeared in the doorway and posed, pink from chin to shoelaces. “Do I look ready for the date, Daddy?”
Reese about dropped Brandon. A sudden vision of Lou ten years later branded terror in his mind. Good heavens, he needed to get his guns prepared for prospective suitors as soon as possible.
