Teresa5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful story of seeking peace and God's plan!June 21, 2014TeresaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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."

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.

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.
