About the Book
Who will save her from herself?
After helping another girl escape, Mercedes Nobles suffers unspeakable abuse at Jericho. So when an American cowboy rides into town, she jumps at the opportunity to start a new life… even though she carries a secret that could destroy any chance of happiness for either of them.
John Durbin may have turned in his badge, but he still believes in living by a code of honor. That includes returning to a seedy Mexican saloon and rescuing a woman who helped his friends escape. However, the tables turn and he finds himself married in name only.
Struggling with cultural differences, they questions if their marriage will survive. Will John sacrifice his faith to make his new bride happy? How will Mercedes redeem herself when John learns of the secret she’s hiding?
I found this to be a well written story and easy to read. I stumbled over a little bit of the Spanish phrases, but figured it out the more I read. I felt the author was true to this particular time period and touched on some topics that others try to dance around. I actually appreciated that. I think it’s easy for a Christian author to ignore a topic because the issue is un-Christian, however we live in a fallen world. I think it’s great to see how Christians, or hopefully Christians may react to that scenario.
My favorite character was John, but not because he was the hero perse, but because of his quick wit, intelligence and ability to get through some tough situations. I loved his bargaining powers!!
Overall I thought this was a good read, especially for those who like historical reads. I especially loved the recipes in the back and can’t wait to try to them!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from CelebrateLit in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
