Fugitive Sarah Prescott and the Reverend Justin Wells certainly prove the axiom that "opposites attract" when the traveling pastor finds the lovely outlaw handcuffed, nearly dehydrated and accompanied by a mortally wounded U. S. Marshal. Fortunately, there are always two sides to a story and Sarah insists that her death sentence has been conjured up by a host of disreputable lawmen; she has killed no one, even though she has lived most of her life on the run with her notorious gang of brothers.
Justin Wells knows about false accusations; he has left Boston and made the lonely trek towards Texas on horse back after being falsely accused. Interestingly enough his next pastorate is in Rocky Creek, Texas, the very town where Sarah will be sent to the gallows when apprehended. Justin has never met anyone like the feisty redhead with swagger of a cowboy and conversation skills as tactful as a wild buffalo, but one thing is apparent and that is; Sarah needs a miracle.
This is a delightful romantic western on the surface and a deeply moving expression of faith between an unlikely convert and her God underneath. The characters are wonderfully cast and the story line has more than one cliff hanger; the perfect combination for an outstanding book!
This was the first book I read from Margaret Brownley and was I amazed! It was so well written that I could see everything happening in my mind as I read. I started the book one evening and couldn't put it down until it was finished. I would love to see a movie made from this. I can't wait until the next one comes out. I will and have been highly recommending this book to everyone.
This was a very entertaining book. I enjoyed all the characters. I can hardly wait until the next book comes out to see what happens to Sarah's brothers. I also wrote and complimented the author on her book and she took the time to write me a personal note back. I think that is great also.
Well I'll be. I am for certainly unsure if I can say enough good things about the book "A Lady Like Sarah" or my new favorite author Margaret Brownley (and no it is not because of her elegant name). As many of you that read my reviews know, my favorite Christian Historical Romantic Comedy author of American west novels is Mary Connealy... well I can honestly say that Margaret Brownley rates right up there with this book and I am ecstatically (is that a word?) excited for more. More Rocky Creek Romance or more anything, just give me more.I was amused. I giggled and grinned. I chuckled and snuggled down further in my reading nook. I was irritated and emotional. I shed slight tears. I could hear Sarah's voice and see her boots. These characters were alive and amazing to me. I read an ARC, but you better believe this is one for the keeper shelf. On a final note: The saloon scene made me squeal and cry, and I love my fellow quilters and that is all I have to say about that.
