A Texan's Promise: A Book Review
About The Book:
Past promises will be tested as new ones are given...
When Clayton Proffitt, foreman of the Circle Z Ranch in Texas, discovers Vanessa Grant is the victim of her stepfather’s advances, Clayton knows he must protect her honor and move her far away from the ranch—and from the man she fears.?
As they make their way West, an unexpected, deep bond develops between Vanessa and Clayton—far more powerful than a mere friendship or his sense of duty to her. But Vanessa’s stepfather won’t let her go so easily. As Clayton and Vanessa place their faith in God and their trust in each other, will they find healing and hope for the future together?
About The Author:
Shelley Gray's first Amish novel, Hidden, was nominated for the Inspirational Readers Choice award. Her book Simple Gifts won the Reviewers Choice Award. Shelley’s novel,The Protector, recently made the New York Times bestseller list. A native of Texas, she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Colorado, and taught school for ten years. She lives in southern Ohio where she writes full time.
This is the first of Shelley Gray's wrote I have had the chance to read, but I have become an instant fan. A Texan's Promise is the first book in The Heart Of A Hero Series, with a release date of October 2011. This was a fast paced book with a ton of adventure, romance and a reminder that God brings us through even the toughest of situations to bring glory to His name. A remarkable read that I just could not put down, and in fact, didn't, as I read it in only one day! I can't wait to read the rest of this series and when I checked out the author's website, I noticed she has a number of books, of which I will be adding to my wish list! I do believe that I have found a new Christian Historical Fiction author to add to my favorites list.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase A Texan's Promise at your favorite bookseller from Abingdon Press, when it is released in October 2011
