Today marks the release of not only a new book, but the first book in a new series. The Cowgirl's Redemption is our first visit to the tiny rural Texas community of Hope Crossing and introduces us to many of its residents. So, grab yourself a cupcake and some chocolate while I tell you a little bit about this story.
The Cowgirl's Redemption revolves around the homecoming of Gloriana Prescott, a prodigal daughter and former bad girl whose life is being transformed by her new-found faith. Yet while she longs to prove she's changed, those she's hurt aren't necessarily willing to give her a second chance.
I don't know about you, but I can relate to those people. I recently found myself in a situation where I was confronted with someone who'd once caused me a lot of grief. And, of course, I still thought of that person as the same one I'd once known, instead of who they were today. Yet as we talked, God let me see that person through a different lens. One that allowed me to show them some grace.
Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation?
This story has it all. A spunky yet tender-hearted heroine, a fun-loving teen who's into barrel racing, a wounded rancher hero, a long-held secret and even a rodeo! Not to mention glimpses of characters whose stories are yet to come.
In honor of this special day, I'm giving away THREE copies of The Cowgirl's Redemption (US mailing addresses only, please). Simply leave a comment to be entered. And don't forget to check the Weekend Edition on Saturday to see if you're a winner.
Here's the back cover copy:
She came home to make things right. Will she be given a second chance?
Gloriana Prescott has returned to her Texas hometown to make amends—even if the townsfolk she left behind aren’t ready to forgive. But when her mother’s ranch manager, Justin Broussard, is tasked with saving the struggling rodeo so his teen daughter can compete, Gloriana sees a chance to prove she’s really changed. But can she prove to Justin, and the town, that she’s trustworthy?
And if you'd like to read the first chapter, you can do that here.
Oh, and let's not forget about the book trailer.
