My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sorry I missed last week guys!! We had A horrible cold run through the house, but we are on the mend now! I think as we continue this weekly bit I won’t always do rereads…..I think its slowly going to morph into more of a featured author as a read through a series, sometimes it’ll be a reread other times it’ll be a series thats been on my tbr pile for to long!
So I read the next one in the Archer brothers series, It wasn’t a reread this week because I hadn’t read it yet. I gotta say I thought short straw bride was my favorite but that was because I hadn’t read this one yet!!
From the moment Crockett was Kidnapped from the train the path he thought he was set on was completely changed on him! I loved Jo even though she seemed a bit bratty at times.
This is a great story about following Gods path and about Gods forgiveness!
On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he’s forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man’s daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he’s haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind–a woman whose dreams now hinge on him.
For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, it turns out the person is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna’s outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?
