Lonestar Homecoming - Colleen Coble

I received this book from Thomas Nelson publishers to review. I love Christian fiction and this is a really great read.  I love Colleen Coble and have read most of her books, she is an excellent author.
This book didn't disappoint and was just as great as the rest of her books.

A brief synopsis:
'With nothing but five dollars, a train ticket, and the wedding dress she’s wearing, Gracie Lister escapes with her daughter to the West Texas country where her family fell apart years ago. There, Lieutenant Michael Wayne—devoted single father, dedicated soldier—gives Gracie the hiding place she needs, and a job caring for his two children. Michael and Gracie aren’t looking for love, but it finds them right away.'

I quickly came to know Gracie and was a champion for her and wanted her to be successful in life after the problems she has dealt with.  We learn that although she's been through so much and is so concerned that in her sin she has just gone too far to ever be forgiven by Christ.  We know better of course and you'll hope along the way that she sees this also.

This was well worth the read and truthfully once I started I couldn't put it down.  I love the choices of authors available through and Thomas Nelson has so many incredibly wonderful Christian authors to enjoy!
