Willow Falls (Matt Bannister Western 1) by Ken Pratt
Welcome to Willow Falls. The town young Matthew Bannister ran away from fifteen years before. Now famed U.S. Deputy Marshal Matt Bannister is coming home to reconcile with his family. He prayed he wouldn’t see his ex-best friend Tom Smith nor the only girl he ever loved, Tom’s wife, Elizabeth. However, old feuds unsettled never die and spark a powder keg of action when the desperate Moskin Gang kidnap Elizabeth and leave a murderous trail behind them. In anguish, Tom, the Willow Falls sheriff, turns to his despised old-friend to help get the woman they both love back alive, if they can.
Sometimes God’s greatest blessing is unanswered prayer.
Redeemed by Rachael C. Duncan
Set in a land of ancient mysteries and unexpected miracles – the Promised Land – this is the powerful love story not only of Ruth and Boaz, but also of Adara and Kemuel – a young, childless couple struggling to survive the curse of barrenness in a culture convinced the lack of children equates the presence of sin. Together, as their lives intertwine by the mighty hand of God, these two couples experience both the magnitude of God’s redemption and the marvel of His grace.
Be swept away in this Biblically-based narrative of hope, as you discover the relentless power of faith and redemption.
L.L. Ward’s All Roads Lead Home Series
From Book 1: Getting lost is easy. Finding your way home’s the tricky part.
Burned out Jesse McKlintock has nowhere left to go except right back to the place he cut loose from ten years ago in a blind rage. In those ten years, he stayed blind drunk. Now he hates himself as passionately as those who betrayed him. He is an old thirty-six needing to winter somewhere. And the chip on his shoulder from years of being hated for his skin is getting mighty heavy.
Getting There reveals Jesse’s rich Scot-Wichita heritage while trekking up north to winter in Wyoming, simultaneously traveling back in time to his roots, carried by his Native American grandmother’s tales spanning over eighty years across pre-Indian Territory linking his past, present, and future generations.
Time may not heal all wounds, Jesse will learn. It will, however, do its part when we at least show up for ours.
