In the frontier town of Denver, Colorado, Sabrina Matthews is given a second chance to escape the perilous life of a prostitute by a policeman and his wife. Danny and Callie give her everything she needs to start a new life, sharing their home and their faith in Jesus Christ.
Cleaning up after working the night district isn't the hard part - it's the past that nips her heels at every turn. Danny and Callie send her to Montana Territory to give her a chance for a fresh start. But will her willingness to help others in Token Creek drive away the first chance she's ever had to fall and love? Or was it a dream that was out a reach for a woman with her checkered past?
When I initially began the story about a prostitute, I was wasn't sure I was going to really get into and enjoy the book. Sabrina surprised and entertained me with it's characters, their relationships with God and each other, but most of all, their love. Without truly knowing about Sabrina's past, the town accepts and embraces her as their own without questions or reservations.
The story was romantic and a page turner, and her past did not dictate who she became. A recommended read, and a book I will read again.
'Real hunger comes from the core... If someone is truly tired of his sins, he'll seek the truth.' - Sabrina. By Lori Wick.
Hmmm... To be honest, this story had a lot of potential. I'll start by saying that I liked the whole idea of having a girl with a bad past, redeemed by God and finding true Love. Sounds all cute and good eh? Well, except the fact that this novel lacked some depth at some points. The characters could have been developed in a better way. Sometimes I feel that they could have been portrayed as more matured people. The dialogues could have been a 100 times better; And through out the story, things were mostly very predictable so I found reacting out loud 'Duh!... Of course!' Now this is not to bash Mrs Wick work. She writes sweet stories. But a little more passion and depth, never hurt in a novel. (But, I will admit that I'm curious to see what happens to Sabrina and Rylan in the next story)
Big Sky Country--Montana--in the ol' west is the setting for these stories. I finished Big Sky Dreams Series liking Sabrina, the second book, the most out of the three.
Sabrina or "Bri" as everyone calls her has a history and uses this past to reach out to others around her even though she puts herself at risk. She catches the local minister's eye and their relationship was fun to read as it developed over time. I liked the character Sabrina reminding me more of past Lori Wick characters that kept me up reading to find out what happens to them--just to make sure!
There were a lot of characters in this series and this overdose of people does become confusing at times, but overall, I enjoyed the series and learned from the characters truths about God. Fiction with some depth is something worthwhile and relaxing at the same time. Pick up this series at your local library or at a store near you!
