Love Finds you in Lonesome Prairie, Montana by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss ~ 5/5 stars

Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana
Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss
Love Finds You series

Summerside Press- publisher
About the book:
In 1890, Julia Cavanaugh travels west from New York City to unite orphans in her care with new families.

Imagine her horror when she discovers that she's to be "delivered," too--as bride to an uncouth miner! But with no return fare, Julia's options are bleak.

What does God have planned for her on the lonesome prairies of Montana?

My review:
I really loved the message of this book: trusting God. This is something we all need to work on, and I love the way these authors weaved the storyline and portrayed their characters. Excellent job! The storyline was believable and easy-to-follow, while not being boring in any way. The feelings and dialogue of the characters were also very well done. I loved how they showed that sometimes what we think God wants from us isn’t always what He wants from us. Sometimes we allow our fears or something else to blind us to what God really wants for us. The authors did a very good job of showing this problem and how it can affect us and those around us. Add this to your to-read if you haven’t already!
Thank you to LITFUSE for sending me a copy to review!

Thank you for sharing! I just discovered Trica's work last month with The Swiss Courier and I really liked it so I'm looking forward to reading her next collaboration! This sounds really good...but then again I don't think I've come across a LFY book that I didn't like!

Renee~ I have been very pleasently surprised by the LFY series. All the ones I've read have been great! I haven't read the Swiss Courier, but I've been hearing lots of great things, so I might have to put it in my TBR list. :D

Abi~ I do too! :D

I've only read a couple of the LFY books, but I'm loving them so far! I almost bought this book at LifeWay today, but talked myself out of it...maybe I'll get it for my b-day or Christmas...hmmm....

Thanks for the excellent review!

I've read lots of good reviews about this series and have ordered one - the North Pole, Alaska I think. Thanks for your review, Carman. I look forward to settling down with a good romance.
