Cowboy to the Rescue
Summoned by two little girls to help their mother in distress, Blue Lyons rushes to rescue widow Clara Weston.
When the cowboy discovers the fatherless family has nowhere to go, he offers them food and shelter.
But widower Blue won't get too close to the needy trio. He's lost too many people he's cared for, and he isn't about to set himself up for loss again.
For Clara, any dangers she may face on the frontier are preferable to staying with her controlling father. Although she's determined to keep her independence, Blue's kindness and tenderness are hard to resist.
Can two pint-size matchmakers help Clara and Blue open their guarded hearts in time for Christmas?
Such an uplifting, encouraging, and inspiring story about building trust, and leaning on God in troubled time, believing He will guide us to the future He has planned for us, and trusting in Him, when it seems the plan we have is not the same as He has...
I adore this story! The town spirit of protectiveness, and how everyone is willing to help stand up for, and help each other as needed, no questions asked.
I loved Eleanor and Libby, the daughters of Clara. Those girls have such distinctive personalities, their loyalty to their mother, their trust in God, and the peculiar ways they see the world around them was refreshing.
Clara and Blue are both running from their past. Blue lost his family in a fire, and had shut down emotionally and socially ever since. The mother with two daughters, while helping him to build the pews in the church, melt down his defenses, steal a piece of his heart, and make a safe, comfortable home in there.
Clara was running from her father, who claimed she wasn't a fit mother, couldn't even take care of herself. Over and over Clara feels that she has to prove to everyone, she is capable, since her father had nearly broken her independent spirit.
Within each other, Blue and Clara find not only kindred spirit, but acceptance, respect, equal partners in life.
A delightful story, filled with love, faith, and learning to trust, and relaying on God's guidance
