Product Description

Back east in Portland, Maine, Vivian Sinclair made a bad choice that follows her to Cripple Creek, Colorado, where her sisters have found husbands and made a home. The shame she carries with her is powerful and she struggles to accept forgiveness from the Lord. Vivian sees limited choices for her future...and marriage isn't one of them.

When most employers find Vivian unworthy as well, she is forced to accept a hostess job at a prestigious sporting parlor. Her decision appears to work out well until an outlaw shows up, violence breaks out and a death occurs. Vivian could be next, so she flees into the night only to be captured by the dangerous outlaw. Will the sheriff's deputy find Vivian? When he discovers her true identity, will he be able to forgive her secrets and lies?

Publisher's Description

The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek—Book 3

Headed toward a fresh start but tethered by her past, Vivian longs to break free, to find forgiveness and love.

At last, the sisters are reunited! The youngest Sinclair, the family" baby", is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?

The sisters warmly welcome Vivian to the mountain west, but the wild-and-woolly mining town isn’t ripe with opportunities for a respectable young woman. The youngest Sinclair sister is determined to make her own way, so
when she’s off ered a job as a hostess in a sporting house, she takes it, thinking the position is appropriate for a tainted, unlovable woman like herself. Although she’s convinced she’ll never be asked to entertain privately, Vivian
keeps her employment a secret from her sisters, knowing they’d be mortified—as will Carter Alwyn, the kind and godly sheriff ’s deputy who’s sweet on her.

Vivian is descending into a life of secrets, lying to the very people who love her and could help her heal from her mistakes. Will an outpouring of grace remind her that she is still God’s beloved and that her past can be washed as clean as Rocky Mountain snow?

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm Mona from Arizona. I write historical fiction and children's books. THE SINCLAIR SISTERS OF CRIPPLE CREEK SERIES is set in the late 1890s, one of my favorite time periods to research. Hmm...what else? I've fed a giraffe mouth-to-mouth, ridden a camel, and held a baby crocodile. I'm the wife of one wonderful man, mother of two darling daughters, grandmother to four amazing kids.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  It is Vivian Sinclair's turn to be seen and heard. She is the last of the four Sinclair sisters to arrive in Cripple Creek from Portland, Maine. She comes to Colorado with a secret, bearing the burden of shame. But our God is generous with second and third... chances for Vivian, the youngest Sinclair sister, and for you and I.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  You are not alone. You belong to a sisterhood of women who fail and triumph. Are you plagued by guilt, burdened by shame? You are not beyond the grasp of God's amazing grace. He's holding a new beginning out to you.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Both my father and husband were in law enforcement. I had lots of fun writing outlaws and lawmen into Vivian's story in THE BRIDE WORE BLUE. Glimpses of God's grace, even in the lives of fictional characters, never ceases to amaze me.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The parables of Jesus--truth shown in a story--inspire me to write fiction full of truth. My favorite authors include: Cathy Marie Hake, Lauraine Snelling, DiAnn Mills, Liz Curtis Higgs, Robin Lee Hatcher, Tamera Alexander, Deeanne Gist, Stephanie Whitson, Stephen Bly . . . .

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I appreciate you. Thank you for your interest in my writing and speaking ministries. God bless you!
