Publisher's Description

Will heiress Lucinda Bishop learn the meaning of true love and forgiveness on the Oklahoma plains?
 
In 1896, after her parents’ deaths, seventeen-year-old heiress Lucinda Bishop is sent to Oklahoma to live with her aunt and uncle. But Oklahoma ranch life brings her more than she bargained for when she meets ranch hand Jake Starnes, a drifter who is running from his past. As her friendship with Jake grows, Lucinda faces emotions she’s never before experienced.
 
As Jake learns more about God’s love for him, he realizes he must face his past and the consequences of his actions, even if it means he will lose the one girl he loves. Will he be able to get his life together before someone else claims her hand…or even her life?

Publisher's Weekly

The first installment in the Winds Across the Prairie series by Rogers (Not on the Menu) is a serviceable, conventional novel. The plot promises entertainment: orphaned Lucinda Bishop moves from Boston to the Oklahoma Territory to live with her Aunt Amelia and Uncle Ben, and finds true love after Jake Starnes recognizes his need for Jesus Christ and faces his past. The writing, however, plods along in a rut of short, dry sentences: “He blinked and shook his head. He had to quit daydreaming and face reality. Lucinda Bishop would never marry him. He'd never marry anyone.” Plot twists occur, but with little fanfare or drama: Lucinda may be being stalked, Aunt Clara appears at the door and a tornado destroys the ranch house. Some readers will balk at the relegation of women to the kitchen (where they all love kitchen work) and the obvious Christian jargon throughout—“God loves you now and always will. He loved you enough to have His Son die for you”—but others will enjoy this traditional tale. (Jan.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
