Book Review - Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana

From the back cover: "Julia Cavanaugh has never left New York.  But in 1889, the young woman rides the orphan train west to deliver the girls in her care to new families.  After Julia's final stop in Montana, she plans to...head straight back east.  But upon arriving in the remote town of Lonesome Prairie, she learns to her horror that she is also supposed to be delivered into the hands of an uncouth miner who carries a bill of purchase for his new "bride."  Julia turns to a respected circuit preacher to protect her from the marriage, but with no return fare, no home, and few friends, her options are bleak.  What is God's plan for a lonely woman stranded in the middle of the vast Montana prairie?"

This book is wonderful!  Co-authors Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss have produced a story that goes straight to the heart.  The characters are well-developed, and we are led to feel with Julia as she faces leaving the girls she has come to love.  We also feel with her in her personal plight.  This is a 'must-have' to add to the collection of anyone who loves historical fiction set in the prairies.

Love Finds You is a series based in actual towns.  Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana?  As described in the book, it can be "purty lonely", and if a local describes it in those terms, imagine how it must have been for Julia, coming all the way from New York by train!

Love Finds You in Lonsesome Prairie, Montana, is published by Summerside Press, and is due to be released on December 1, 2009.  It is available at local Christian bookstores as well as through http://www.amazon.com/ and http://www.christianbooks.com/.

I wish to thank litFUSE for providing a copy of this book for me to review.  The opinions expressed in the blog are my own.
