After reading Courted by a Cowboy (a novella), I couldn’t wait to dive in and read Oscar’s story in Roping the Wrangler. I was not disappointed. This book is full of strife due to misconceptions about others, things that have happened in the past, children who need love and care and a town that is ruled by a mean-spirited man.
Sarah and Oscar have both lived lives where grief and loss played a major part in their upbringing. Although they each had a different experience than the other, their pasts prepared in them the caring hearts that would be needed to help little girls that no one else wanted.
The author wrote a beautiful story, with some characters that will warm your heart and others that will just make you so mad! Very well done. (5 stars)
I received this book through a Spine Poetry contest held on Regina Jenning’s Facebook page and was not required to write a review, but happily do so.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
At a young age, Lacy Williams began imagining alternate endings for her favorite cartoon shows. She soon followed that with a newspaper for the neighborhood kids—”published” on a dot matrix printer!—and notebooks full of stories written in longhand. In high school she took a correspondence course and experienced an editor’s red pen for the first time. Thankfully, her passion for writing was strong enough to survive the experience.
Lacy, her husband and her two young children live in Oklahoma, where they enjoy taking their three Cavalier King Charles spaniels to the park. One of the dogs (Mr. Bingley—named after Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice character) is a registered Therapy Dog and Lacy volunteers with him at local libraries in their Kids Reading to Dogs program to help promote literacy in kids.
Lacy adores reading almost as much as writing, and usually reads the end of the book first. She promises readers happily-ever-afters guaranteed. Lacy’s debut novel won the American Christian Fiction Writers’ prestigious Genesis Award before being published. As an active ACFW member, she attends conferences and mentors new writers.
