Publisher's Description

A fifth-grade school teacher in southern Illinois, Develyn Worrell's nightmare begins one summer when she discovers her husband's infidelity. She divorces him without ever telling her twenty-one-year-old daughter why. Although Devvy has a heart change and desires for reconciliation, he dies before she can tell him of her desire. The daughter blames her mother for her father's death. Memories of a Dirt Road Town begins the story the following summer. Brokenhearted about her husband's death and her daughter's decision not to come home for the summer, Devvy decides to find a little dirt road town in Wyoming where she had vacationed as a child. She remembers fondly the sunset and a beautiful Roan horse. Upon arrival, Devvy purchases a Roan mare and a burro, rents a little cabin, and watches as God brings three very important men into her life.

    I bought the book because I recognized the name of the author, and the story summary caught my attention. I identified with the background of the main character. The story is so well written and the characters now seem like good friends. Loved the humor and the suspense woven throughout. Great example of a Christian book that proves a story can seem realistic without stooping to inappropriate language or story line. Can't wait to read the second book in this series, "The Mustang Breaker."

    This series was great! If you've never read any books by Stephen Bly, you will be an instant fan.

    Somehow he knows how women think. I love the conversations Dev has with herself and God. You'll feel like you have a new friend. There's a little romance to make it interesting, but not the main focus of the book. Stephen Bly always comes up with the most interesting characters for the main character to interact with.

    My husband loved the book, as well.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Stephen Bly
Located in: Winchester, Idaho
Submitted: September 14, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I live in a town of 308 people. (Winchester, Idaho) It's almost too big for me. I love remote places. The West gives me a chance to see people clearly . . . one at a time. I will always live out here.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I drove northwest out of Casper, Wyoming, turned down a dirt road and headed for the distant Big Horn Mountains. Right after I crossed a desolate railroad track I stumbled upon a tiny, dirt road town. At one glance, I could tell there was a story there.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Develyn Worrel isn't going home . . . but she is going to search for a childhood memory. And she finds it! I'm hoping there are some good memories my readers and go back and find. You had some good days in the past...enjoy them again.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Some people ask me, how are you able to write so well from a woman's point-of-view? I've spent over 42 years listening to thoughtful and wonderful wife who tells me everything in her mind. What a treasure she is.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Develyn is an Indiana schoolteacher. I have great respect for the dedication and hard work of teaching kids. My grandma was an Indiana schoolteacher before she moved to California in the early 1900s.
