Product Description

When socialite Emma Crowell stops the carriage on the way to Portland to 'exercise' her fussy poodle, she does not expect to become stranded in the woods in decidedly unsuitable attire. The pair of men who find her decide to take her back to their cave, where they've hidden sheep they rustled from a nearby rancher. The rancher turns out to be Peter Lowery, and he arrives, furious, to retrieve his property. But when he discovers Emma, he does the Christian thing and brings her, her dog, and the thieves back to his cabin. Peter may have to shelter the motley group, but he expects them to earn their keep until he can take them to Bountiful, the nearest town.

    This review was written for She Shall Be Praised, Women of Hope Series #3.
    All Emma Cromwell hoped for when she set out on her journey to Portland, Oregon was to learn to rely on herself and not the men in her life. After spending time in the social circles in Denver and finding little in the way of friendships with women and nothing but the attention of suitable gentlemen, Emma wanted to see if she could handle life without someone making all the decisions for her. So when her father agreed to send her by coach along with the pastor and his wife, he felt he had done the right thing. After all he finally got Emma to agree to marry Joshua Hamilton, a suitable match in both business and for making sure he could provide for his daughter. Now she only has to get from Denver to Oregon in one piece.

    But like all great novels, there is a twist of fate when Emma has to stop the coach to allow the dog she was gifted from Mr. Hamilton as an engagement present to do her constitutionals. Little did she imagine that the coach would be held up and the driver leave her behind in an effort to avoid being robbed. Now she is left in the care of two bumbling thieves who know they can't abandon her in the middle of the forest. One of the men, Ned, wants to be the true gentleman while Sawyer sees her like an object of desire and one that she can't trust. When she is taken back to their camp, she learns that they are more than just thieves, they have also stolen sheep from the local rancher and they are hoping to stay long enough to make some money off them.

    Peter Lowery knows that the size of his sheep herd is dwindling and believes that someone is stealing from him. Instead of getting the sheriff involved since he lives so far from town, he opts to do the investigation on his own. He soon stumbles upon Ned and Sawyer in a hidden canyon, and with his ranch foreman, Colley, they are able to capture them. What he didn't expect was to find a beautiful woman being held hostage along with a dog. Knowing he can't leave her behind, he takes Emma back to the ranch with the thieves. Unfortunately for all of them, he can't risk taking Emma back to town until the fall. Being short-handed on the ranch at a critical time for his sheep herd, he can't spare anyone to take Emma to town even though he knows her father must be concerned to know if she is OK. Will a socialite be able to earn her keep living on a sheep ranch even though none of the skills she possesses will help out? Will Emma find a way to return home to her father on her own?

    I received She Shall Be Praised by Ginny Aiken compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Group for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. This is the third book in the Women of Hope Series and I have LOVED this novel. Set in the late 1800's this is a story of how Emma learns to dig deep and find the knowledge and determination to fit in despite what Peter thinks of her. She also learns that Peter has lost his wife has also left behind a young son who finds much more in Emma than a friend. This one is worth every single one of the 5 out of 5 stars and I can't wait for more from Ginny Aiken in the future.

    This review was written for She Shall Be Praised, Women of Hope Series #3.
    Emma's existence so far has been pampered, protected and very shallow. She hardly has concerns past what to wear to the next party and other selfish interests. Her bubble of happy ignorant bliss is popped very suddenly when she is left behind in the middle of nowhere and is taken hostage by two bumbling crooks. The next few months of her life are like nothing she's ever had to go through. However, near the end of the book Emma's character comes to the realization that without all of the discomfort and difficulties she experienced during her failed trip and winter on the ranch, she would never have experienced such deep joy either.

    It reminded me of the verses in Romans 5:3b-4 "we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;4 perseverance, character; and character, hope." Emma has a choice to make: be a simpering, pampered, spoiled brat and make everyone miserable, or step up and decide to focus on the others around her.

    This book is an enjoyable read with adventure and humour, and packs a punch in the lesson learned.

    I received this book from FaithWords and Netgalley for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own.
