Publisher's Description

Can the brother left behind and a woman without hope work together for the good of two precious children?

Nick Stafford stayed in central Washington, working his family’s large ranch after his brothers left to pursue other passions—but his toughest job is being a single dad. As a child he watched his father fail at marriage and parenting, so Nick was determined to show him up. He’d be a better husband, father, and ranch manager than Sam Stafford ever was. Despite that commitment, three years after Nick’s wife left him, he has a daughter in trouble at school and both of his girls are facing issues that force him to rethink his stubborn plans.

For Dr. Elsa Andreas, life fell apart when tragedy caused her to abandon her family therapy practice and retreat to the backwoods of Gray’s Glen. Her school principal sister believes Elsa can guide the Stafford girls and that working with kids will draw Elsa out of her protective bubble.

Summer on the Double S teems with life and adventure. Amid the bounty of God and land, will Nick and Elsa find the courage to build futures based on faith rather than fear?

Editorial Reviews

"I’ve been so eagerly awaiting this book by Ruth Logan Herne—and it’s even better than I’d hoped. An overprotective cowboy daddy and the therapist masquerading as a woodland fairy princess called on to help his daughters… What could possibly go wrong? Just everything. The whole delightful story is full of fun twists and poignant turns. Home on the Range is a great new installment in the Double S Ranch series."
—Mary Connealy, author of No Way Up

"Home on the Range showcases Ruth Logan Herne’s ability to write wounded, damaged characters grasping for grace with both hands. My heart ached for Nick’s loss, Elsa’s guilt, and little Cheyenne’s desperate need. As always, Herne’s story is sprinkled with hope and gives the reader glimpses of the One who came to save. A satisfyingly happy ending left me sighing with contentment."
—Mary Jane Hathaway, author of The Pepper in the Gumbo

"In Home on the Range, the finely crafted second story in the Double S Ranch trilogy, Nick is caught in a downward spiral of repeating his father’s mistakes and no amount of cowboy gumption is going to fix things. But Elsa, a family therapist who sought refuge in Gray’s Glen to escape her own tragic past, defies her fears and conventional wisdom to connect with Nick and his daughters, bringing a soothing balm to this hurting cowboy’s wounds. Ruth Logan Herne explores the darkest recesses of her characters’ souls and bring light into the shadows, giving hope to the lost and healing to the broken. This latest story is no exception and one of her finest!"
—Jan Drexler, award-winning author of Hannah’s Choice and Mattie’s Pledge

"A child in crisis, a hunky but clueless single father, and a reclusive therapist with a big secret… Intrigued? I sure was. Home on the Range is a fabulous story of hope, faith, and real-life family drama. Filled with heart-tugging emotion, delightfully sassy bantering, and a cowboy to die for—what’s not to love? I loved it so much I quickly ordered the first book in the series. Well done, Ruth Logan Herne!"
—Vickie McDonough, best-selling, award-winning author of Sarah’s Surrender, book 3 in the Land Rush Dreams series

    Nick is the second of the Stafford sons. His mother, the second wife of Sam Stafford, left when Nick was a young boy, never to return. As a young man, Nick wanted to have the perfect family, to show his father how it could be done. Unfortunately he didn't choose wisely, as his wife, Whitney, didn't enjoy being a mother to his two little girls and left them a few years before the time of this story. Now the girls are 6 and 8, and struggling, especially Cheyenne, the oldest. After ignoring things for several months, Cheyenne is about to fail second grade, so he finally takes the advice of the school principal and contacts a psychologist, Elsa, who happens to be the principal's sister. Elsa has been holed up in a strange little house in the woods, recovering from her own trauma but is finally ready to reach outside herself to help others again. The characters in this family saga are likeable and believable. My favorite characters are probably Angelina and her mother, Isabo, because of their straight shooting wisdom and deep faith. It was easy to like Nick. He tried so hard and just wanted a peaceful family life. I liked the dynamic between the brothers too. For maximum enjoyment, be sure to read the whole series in order. The books can stand alone, but you'll really be missing out if you read just one.

    I totally enjoyed this little book. I read the first one just a month or so ago, (Read my review HERE) and was eager to follow up on the story. The first book mostly about the oldest Stafford son - Colt. After reading his story, I looked forward to reading Nick's - the middle brother in the Stafford family.

    Ruth did not disappoint. I loved how she weaved their stories around heartache, faith, family, love, forgiveness, and healing. The people she brought into their lives were so perfect for them. I really enjoyed watching the characters interact and grow in their relationships. I also enjoy reading about ranch life. The patriarch of the family Sam, was also an encouragement to read about. Once a hard, tough man, with little time for anything other than running his ranch, making money, and a name for himself. His family relationships a total wreck are now healing since he has become a new creation in Christ. Finding faith has changed him and his outlook on life, but with his health failing, how much time will he have left?

    I don't think there is much I didn't like about this book. Of course there is that one character that shows up to rock the boat a bit, who is not the most pleasant to be around and makes the story a little more dramatic. I enjoyed this book as much or more than the first and am looking forward to reading the last book in the series soon.

    I received this book free from Waterbrook and Blogging for Books to read. All opinions are my own and I was not asked to write a positive review.

    This review was written for #2: Home on the Range.
    Book 2 in Author Ruth Logan Herne's Double S Ranch Series, this can be read as a stand-alone. I haven't read Book 1, but was able to follow the story line. It did refer to some happenings in Book 1 but it was fairly easy to figure out what had happened.

    Believable characters who draw you in, this story confronts both the good and bad of life. The author does a great job of handling what is really PTSD in one individual, explores the dangers of substance abuse, and shows the healing possible after divorce when God is allowed to work.

    Summer is a busy time on a ranch and children and baby animals abound to help make this an enjoyable read. I loved the different personalities in this story and am looking forward to reading Book 3.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

    This review was written for #2: Home on the Range.
    How have I gone this long and not discovered Ruth Logan Herne? Her new book Home of the Range is a near perfect example of quality Christian contemporary fiction.

    Now Home on the Range is the second book in the Double S Ranch Series and its ok if you start here like I did. (Although I will be going back to devour the first very soon). These are stand alone novels that can be read separately.

    I found Nick to be an absolutely wonderful main character with such a mix of strength and gentleness that is rarely seen today. Elsa was such a surprise as well. I love her depth and character development through the whole book. This book was raw, real, and something that I could completely relate too. (Despite the lack of cowboy in my life)

    This was truly a book about second chances. Herne did such a wonderful job blending faith into real life situations. Because not everything is simple and that reminder of God being with you through the hard stuff is definitely needed.

    I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to dig into the rest of the series.

    I received this book from the publisher for my honest review
