I am happy to bring you another great book, this time from Tyndale Publishing. Working with Tyndale Publishing has been a pleasure. There are so many new books that I’ve been able to read and share with you.
Claiming Mariah – Pam Hillman
In light of her father’s death, Mariah Malone sends a letter that will forever alter the lives of her family. When Slade Donovan, strong willed and eager for vengeance, shows up on her front porch, Mariah is not ready to hear his truths: her father’s farm, the only home she’s ever known, was bought with stolen gold. With Slade ready to collect his father’s rightful claim and force Mariah and her family out on the streets, Mariah must turn to God for guidance. Though Mr. Frederick Cooper, a local landowner, promises to answer her financial woes if she agrees to be his bride, Mariah finds herself drawn instead to the angry young man demanding her home.
With the ranch now under Slade’s careful eye, he will unearth more than he ever imagined as a devious plot of thievery, betrayal and murder threatens more than the well-being of the ranch, endangering the lives of those who hold it dear. With days dwindling until the rest of the Donovan clan arrive to the Lazy M ranch, Mariah and Slade must rise above the resentment of their fathers and see their true feelings before greed alters their futures forever.
What I Thought:
Claiming Mariah is a wonderful book. This is my first historical type fiction with a western flare. I’m no stranger to a strong women in an unfriendly era though. This reminded me of another book I recently read, A Path Toward Love. If you appreciate a strong women, some love and romance, even stronger men, with a little adventure thrown in Claiming Mariah would be a great ad to your bookshelf. Since I don’t want to give away to many spoilers, I’ll leave it at that. You can snatch up this book for your Kindle (I read mine on IPhone) on Amazon. Check to the left. Ms Hillman has done an excellent job weaving a wonderful story, with heartfelt characters, and a strong story of faith.
