    I loved A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley The story is about a lady named Sarah Prescott, the funny thing about the title is Sarah is far from a lady Her parents died when she was a young girl and so she was raised by her wild, revenge seeking older brothers They didn t teach her how to be a lady but how to defend herself against the harsh world and shoot, lie and sneak around Sarah soon runs to a preacher by the name of Justin Wells who saves her numerous times and she ends up saving I loved A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley The story is about a lady named Sarah Prescott, the funny thing about the title is Sarah is far from a lady Her parents died when she was a young girl and so she was raised by her wild, revenge seeking older brothers They didn t teach her how to be a lady but how to defend herself against the harsh world and shoot, lie and sneak around Sarah soon runs to a preacher by the name of Justin Wells who saves her numerous times and she ends up saving him a few times too Sarah and Justin come from very different worlds and society standards that at first they clash badly, but soon a friendship blooms They find an orphaned baby and are determined to find her a good home Justin is trying to convince Sarah, who is an outlaw, to turn herself in and trust on God to keep her safe, all the while he is struggling with his own faith in God too A Lady Like Sarah is filled with mishaps, laughs, tears and lots of adventure Margaret Brownley has really captured a good story of inspirational romance and God s forgiveness and guidance.I really enjoyed the character of Sarah She very much felt that God had abandoned her and that she did not deserve a good and happy life Once she learned how great God was is and that he never left her she turned her faith right around like a child I recommend this story to anyone who loves inspirational romances and stories of God s amazing guidance, love and forgiveness in our lives

    What does it take for a woman to be a real lady Is it the way she speaks The clothes she wears Or is it the depth of her character When Pastor Justin Wells first meets Sarah Prescott, there s nothing ladylike about her Her language is coarse, she dresses like a man, and she s in handcuffs with an injured US Marshall Forced to travel together, Sarah and Justin forge a strong friendship, despite the initial friction between them When friendship turns to love, Sarah must trust God for a mira What does it take for a woman to be a real lady Is it the way she speaks The clothes she wears Or is it the depth of her character When Pastor Justin Wells first meets Sarah Prescott, there s nothing ladylike about her Her language is coarse, she dresses like a man, and she s in handcuffs with an injured US Marshall Forced to travel together, Sarah and Justin forge a strong friendship, despite the initial friction between them When friendship turns to love, Sarah must trust God for a miracle, because that s the only way she and Justin can be together.Margaret Brownley has crafted a charming, entertaining novel of life, love, and survival in the American West In Sarah, she gives us a woman who s been running so long, she believes that s her lot in life And Justin is leaving his former Boston congregation in shame, his only choice to start a new life in far off Texas Both have been judged for actions that were not their own, and both must trust God to show them their true selves A Lady Like Sarah is funny, touching, and a great start to the new Rocky Creek series

    This story was awesome It remind me of Leather and Lace by Diann Mills in that the heroine was an outlaw However, the similarities ended there The plot was entirely different I loved how the hero in the story was a preacher What a fantastic way to set up a way to show the reader true Christianity The inspirational storytelling by Ms Brownley was superbly written I was blown away by how powerfully the subtle spiritual messages were brought out in the novel The entire story rang true to m This story was awesome It remind me of Leather and Lace by Diann Mills in that the heroine was an outlaw However, the similarities ended there The plot was entirely different I loved how the hero in the story was a preacher What a fantastic way to set up a way to show the reader true Christianity The inspirational storytelling by Ms Brownley was superbly written I was blown away by how powerfully the subtle spiritual messages were brought out in the novel The entire story rang true to me as nothing seemed forced or inserted to prove a point or to make the book Christian It naturally showed through the plot and characters how real Christian faith is supposed to work I also loved how the little stories in the Bible came out and how the heroine s faith grew through the many trials she faced There were many, many touching moments in the story And when it comes to suspense, I don t think I ve felt this scared for a fictional character since reading The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers back in the 90s My heart went out to the hero and heroine because of their plight and their desire to be together, which seemed impossible barring a miracle.Wonderfully written, amazingly romantic, and spiritually sound, this book is making my top fiction list for 2009 It s fresh and exciting and I read the story in two days This novel releases at the end of December Make sure to get a copy and start the next year with a great book I can t recommend it highly enough

    Fugitive Sarah Prescott and the Reverend Justin Wells certainly prove the axiom that opposites attract when the traveling pastor finds the lovely outlaw handcuffed, nearly dehydrated and accompanied by a mortally wounded U S Marshal Fortunately, there are always two sides to a story and Sarah insists that her death sentence has been conjured up by a host of disreputable lawmen she has killed no one, even though she has lived most of her life on the run with her notorious gang of brothers Fugitive Sarah Prescott and the Reverend Justin Wells certainly prove the axiom that opposites attract when the traveling pastor finds the lovely outlaw handcuffed, nearly dehydrated and accompanied by a mortally wounded U S Marshal Fortunately, there are always two sides to a story and Sarah insists that her death sentence has been conjured up by a host of disreputable lawmen she has killed no one, even though she has lived most of her life on the run with her notorious gang of brothers Justin Wells knows about false accusations he has left Boston and made the lonely trek towards Texas on horse back after being falsely accused Interestingly enough his next pastorate is in Rocky Creek, Texas, the very town where Sarah will be sent to the gallows when apprehended Justin has never met anyone like the feisty redhead with swagger of a cowboy and conversation skills as tactful as a wild buffalo, but one thing is apparent and that is Sarah needs a miracle.This is a delightful romantic western on the surface and a deeply moving expression of faith between an unlikely convert and her God underneath The characters are wonderfully cast and the story line hasthan one cliff hanger the perfect combination for an outstanding book
