Angela has cut all ties with her past. After finding a startling note from her deceased father telling her to disappear, she decides to do just that.

Wilkes Wagner has resigned himself to the fact that he’ll never be anything other than a rancher. After serving his country in the military and having his heart broken by the girl he left behind, it seems the only thing left for him is running the Devil’s Fork Ranch. Well, that and making sure his crazy Uncle Vern doesn’t get into too much trouble. It’s a lonely life, but Wilkes knows he won’t be foolish enough to fall in love with another girl again- until a mysterious girl with a secretive past moves to Crossroads. And Wilkes might be mistaken, but it seems like she might just need him around.

Featured Books Plus a GIVEAWAY: The Way of Hope by Dave and Beth Weikel

23138668The Way of Hope – Growing Close to God Through Loss


Passing through the valley of the shadow of loss can appear to be an unending gray, dry, barren journey from which you would never return. It seems impossible that spiritual life could even continue in such circumstances, let alone grow. Yet it is especially there, in your darkest hour, that God will bring you light and new life like you’ve never known before—if you will see that He is there with you.

Follow The Way of Hope with Beth and Dave Weikel as they lead you along your own dark paths toward the true light, found only in God’s Word. They themselves have passed the way of tragic loss several times and have found always that, through the pain and brokenness, God’s promises in Scripture become so much more meaningful.

Discover personally what it means to be blessed because you mourn— what it means to be comforted by God. He promises you there still can be hope, still new life.

Stay: Lessons My Dogs Taught Me about Life, Loss, and Grace by Dave Burchett

In an odd twist of fate, I am very glad that I didn’t read this book when I first received it. Several weeks ago my dog Jack, a lab mix, received the very same prognosis as Hannah – a large mass on his spleen. What we had assumed to be a pot belly from perhaps excessive late-night snacking turned out to be an 11 lb tumor (no joke). The vets had never seen a tumor this large in a dog his size before.

The fact that Jack’s spleen hadn’t ruptured was in and of itself a miracle. Time dragged on for what felt like eternity as we waited for the results of his several-hours-long surgery, and then days thereafter for the prognosis of the tumor. The weeks-long recovery from having lost more than half of his blood was absolutely terrifying. Learning that the tumor was benign was a blessing beyond anything I dared hope.

Unfortunately Hannah had not been so fortunate. In the midst of all the uncertainty and fervent prayers, it would have destroyed me to have read Hannah’s plight prior to our incredibly blessed and happy outcome. I feel so fortunate, and as a result of my own experience down the same road with Jack, this book tugged at my heart more than I could ever tell you.

When ten-year-old Jacqueline Falna hears her mother’s scream, she is unaware that the axis of her world is about to tilt. Her father’s plane has been shot down by German fighters. In the midst of poverty, food shortages, air raids, and the grinding hardship of daily life under Nazi rule, she forms an unlikely alliance with David Bergier, a twelve-year-old Jewish neighbor who poses as her cousin after his family is “relocated” by the Nazis. When Rennes is liberated, Jacqueline meets an American soldier and becomes convinced that he has been sent to reunite her with her father.

Based on a true story, “Jacqueline” is a tale of family, faith, unusual friendships, and the resiliency of the human spirit set against the backdrop of occupied Rennes in 1944. With the drama of fiction and the authenticity of personal history, “Jacqueline” is both a story about family and a family’s story.  Continue reading “Featured Post: Jacqueline by Jackie Minniti”
