About the book:
Book Number One in the Under Texas Stars series

A love like Lucy and Nate’s only comes along once in a blue moon . . .

Lucy Marsh's worldly resources are running out, but she's fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father's recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Texas where her new husband is surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to care for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he'd marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate finds he'd give anything to protect Lucy and the children he's grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I knew from the beginning that this book was going to be right up my alley, but I have no idea just how good it would be! I have never read any books by Colleen Coble, but I can safely say that if this book is indicative of her writing, I plan to read many more books by her!

I am a sucker for a sweet, romantic, historical novel, and when faith in Christ is woven so expertly into the framework of the story, I am hooked.  The author also added in a little mystery and potential danger.  The book's conclusion even took me by surprise to a degree.

The characterizations in the book were fantastic.  LI ucy captured my heart along with Jed and Elaine.  I can identify with her to a degree.  I often expect way too much out of myself, and I sometimes feel like I have to prove my worth.  There are times that I get into that mistaken way of thinking, and I expect more of myself than anyone around me does.  Including God.  Ned was a great character to get to know, and it was so wonderful to see how God changed all of them in miraculous ways.

I am racking my brain, trying to think of something that could have improved this book.  Perhaps the conclusion was a little briefer than I would have preferred, but who knows?  Perhaps the author will write a sequel.  You can always hope!

If you are looking for a Christian historical novel that will renew and confirm your belief that God loves us just as we are and He cares about everything in our lives, this is a book for you!

I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
