    Out of the frying pan and into the fire! That is just what seems to be happening to Faith Nolan after marrying Roger when she lost everything in a fire and had no place to go. First she lost her parents and thinking there were only a couple of single men left to marry, she opted for Roger. Only in hindsight years later, she wished she would have taken up the charitable offers of the town's resident's to stay with them. She just didn't want people to feel sorry for her and she certainly didn't want to be considered a charitable case simply because she had no where else to go.

    Helping to run the General Store seemed to give her an outlet of feeling helpful to others, as well as caring for the three mules they owned to get supplies from the town of Bountiful up to where the store was in Hope County, Oregon. Their main customer was the logging company owned by Nathan Bartlett as well as some of the men serving at the Army Fort just outside the town's limits. Now if only she could find a way out of Roger's violent outbursts towards her whenever he and his brother Theo got drunk, which seemed to happen every single night. Thank goodness for long sleeve shirts to hide what bruises he left on her. She only prayed God would hear her prayers for something to change, she just never expected He would answer the way He did.

    When faced with another of Roger's lies about missing supplies for Nathan's company, Faith did what she felt God had placed on her heart, and that was waiting for the next shipment of supplies and fulfill Nathan's order before they went missing again. She knew that by defying Roger, she would be faced with another beating but she had to do what was right and hope God would come through in the end. Sure enough Roger and Theo were waiting for her when she arrived back to the store and they were drunk yet again. Only Roger would never take his anger out on Faith, when anyone was around, she knew he would wait for Theo to leave and then have his "discussion" with Faith.

    Sure enough like clock work that is just what happened but something snapped inside of Faith this time, and she wasn't going to let Roger take his anger out on her once again. Grabbing a fireplace poker, she attempted to fight him off, but when he pushed her away from him, taking the poker from him, the last thing she remembered before she hit the ground was pain and darkness. What she didn't expect when she came to, was to see Roger's body on the ground with the fireplace poker in the back of his head and their store on fire. Fleeing for her life, she ran, but never in her mind did she think she would be arrested for Roger's murder. But things are about to get a whole lot worse for Faith. Is this God's answer to her prayers?

    I received Remember Me When by Ginny Aiken compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. This is the second book in the Women of Hope series and one that I fully enjoyed being a huge fan of westerns. I always thought I would have run a general store if I lived back in that time frame but loved where Ginny Aiken took this one. Faith is about to have her faith tested when one circumstance after another seems to stack the deck against her innocence and one by one, the people she hoped she could count on are shaking their own heads in disbelief. It will take an act of God to free Faith from the hangman's noose and to find a way to turn the hearts of the town's people back to believing she is innocent. Truly an unforgettable novel and one that I can proudly add to my personal library and well deserving of a 5 out of 5 stars. This novel also contains a Reading Group Discussion guide at the conclusion.

    When Faith married her husband Roger Nolan he seemed to be an upstanding businessman, owner of a remote mercantile outside the town of Bountiful, Oregon. But Faith quickly learned the truth-that her husband is dishonest in his business practices and likes his liquor, turning mean when he indulges. When Faith discovers that Roger has yet again failed to deliver critical winter supplies to Nathan Bartlett, owner of the nearby logging camp, she takes the order up the mountain herself. Furious, Roger confronts Faith when she returns, and she is knocked unconscious. When Faith wakes, she finds Roger dead in a pool of his own blood, and she soon stands accused of murder.

    Having fought in the War Between the States, Nathan has seen enough violence to last a lifetime. He has always admired Faith's quiet strength and integrity and finds it hard to believe such a gentle woman capable of harming anyone. However, Nathan begins to struggle with his instinct to protect Faith when evidence mounts against her.

    As more and more people begin to think Faith is guilty, only her trust in God can give her the hope she needs to survive this trial.

    This book is based on the story of Abigail from 1 Samuel. King David requests food for his men from a wealthy man named Nabal. He was an mean, surly man and not only said no, but sent an insulting message back to David. David and his men come toward his land on the warpath, but Nabal's wife hears about it and intervenes. She sends food ahead of her and begs for mercy for her household and David grants it, and when her husband later falls dead, he marries her.

    Faith is a quiet, gentle woman with a strong faith in God and a determination to do what's right. It's an inspiring story of standing strong in the face of adversity and seeing God work.

    Ginny Aiken in her new book, "Remember Me When" Book Two in the A Women of Hope series published by FaithWords brings us into the life of Faith Nolan.

    From the back cover: Inspired by the biblical story of Abigail in 1 Samuel, a Christian woman stands up for what is right, despite life-threatening consequences.

    When Faith married her husband Roger Nolan he seemed to be an upstanding businessman, owner of a remote mercantile outside the town of Bountiful, Oregon. But Faith quickly learned the truth-that her husband is dishonest in his business practices and likes his liquor, turning mean when he indulges. When Faith discovers that Roger has yet again failed to deliver critical winter supplies to Nathan Bartlett, owner of the nearby logging camp, she takes the order up the mountain herself. Furious, Roger confronts Faith when she returns, and she is knocked unconscious. When Faith wakes, she finds Roger dead in a pool of his own blood, and she soon stands accused of murder.

    Having fought in the War Between the States, Nathan has seen enough violence to last a lifetime. He has always admired Faith's quiet strength and integrity and finds it hard to believe such a gentle woman capable of harming anyone. However, Nathan begins to struggle with his instinct to protect Faith when evidence mounts against her.

    As more and more people begin to think Faith is guilty, only her trust in God can give her the hope she needs to survive this trial.

    My favorite love story from The Bible is the story between Abigail and David. Now Ms. Aiken has taken that story and turned it into a very clever murder mystery in a western setting. Faith gets on the wrong side of her husband, Roger, and he hits her, knocking her out. When she comes to, Roger is dead and the house is on fire. Faith gets out but all the evidence suggests that Faith killed Roger. The only person standing with her is Nathan. Together these two must solve the murder/fire and work out their romance. I think Ginny Aiken did a wonderful job with the names of the places. They live in the town of Bountiful in the County of Hope. That gives you the idea of what the town should be doing and what everybody should have. Ms. Aiken has also done a marvelous job of bringing the Biblical story of Abigail to a Western community. Faith, Nathan and the other characters play out so well on the pages you would think you had known them all your life. "Remember Me When" is a great read that I was sorry to see come to an end. I am so looking forward to more in this series from Ms. Aiken.

    I truly love picking up a book by an author I have never read before and find that I am so totally entertained that I lose track of time and place. Such was the case for me when I entered the world of Ginny Aiken's newest novel, Remember Me When, her second novel in her "Women of Hope" series. This novel was inspired by the biblical story of Abigail in 1 Samuel. She stood up for what she knew was right even though there were life-threatening consequences.

    The story takes place in Hope County, Oregon in 1880. Our heroine is Faith Nolan who is the wife of Roger Nolan, the proprietor of a general store. She married Roger out of need after her parents were both killed by Indians. Roger offered her marriage but form the wedding night on he abused her. Roger's brother lives with them and Faith finds her only solace is when she spends time with her husband's three mules, Maisie, Daisy, and Lazy.

    Roger is a very nasty untrustworthy man. Nathan Bartlett, the owner of a local logging camp, orders merchandise and food from Roger's store, but somehow Nathan's orders are never delivered complete. Faith feels bad because she knows the orders arrived. When the new order comes in she waits until her husband drinks himself into oblivion and she sneaks out, loads Nathan's order onto the backs of the three mules and heads up to the logging camp to deliver the much needed order. When she returns, she suffers Roger's wrath and as he pushes at her she falls and hits her head on the hearth and is knocked out. When she awakes, she finds Roger dead and the store and her home on fire. She is able to escape only to find the mules have escaped as well. She soon finds herself on her way back up the mountain to the logging camp and meets up with her three mule friends who lay down around her to help keep her warm during the night.

    When Nathan and the loggers see the smoke coming from the base of the mountain they head down to see where it was coming from. Finding Roger dead inside the burning cabin, Nathan and the rest set out to find Faith. To complicate matters, Roger's brother, Theo, begins accusing Faith of murdering Roger. This sets the plot of the story in motion.

    They take Faith into the town of Bountiful to meet with the sheriff. From there other things begin to happen and more fingers are pointed at Faith. Is she guilty? Does Nathan believe in her innocence? Will the jury find her guilty and sentence her to hang? You will have to read the book to find out the answers. Ms. Aiken kept me on the edge of my seat and I'm sure anyone who enjoys a good Christian suspense will be kept on the edge of their seats as well.

    My only sadness in reading this book is that I didn't read the first book in the series first, not that it was necessary, but now, I will definitely pick up a copy of For Such a Time as This which was based on the story of Queen Esther meets the west. The third book in the series will be titled She Shall Be Praised and was inspired by Proverbs 31.

    I would highly recommend Remember Me When to anyone who loves Romantic Suspense filled novels. It is a story filled with faith and trust and the message presented was very well done.

    On a 5-Star Scale - 5 BIG Stars!!!!!

    I would like to thank Sarah Reck and Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Group for my Advanced Reader Copy of Remember Me When. I received my ARC copy for free in order to read and give my honest review, which I have done.
