Since things didnít work out in Boston, Reverend Justin Wells believes that going to Rocky Creek, TX is Godís will. Justin also believes that the right people come into your life at the right time and for a reason. Itís in Missouri that he comes upon Sarah Prescott.
Sarah is in a pickle! A fugitive from the law, she has been captured for a murder she didnít commit. Thatís not to say that she and her three brothers havenít committed other crimes but theyíve never killed anyone. Sarah and the Marshall have been ambushed and left to die.
Justin goes to work trying to save the Marshall whoís been shot and the young "lady". Sarah is determined to run away, but it seems sheís always running into trouble having to be saved. Sarah has always believed that God left her and her brothers a long time ago when her parents died. Of all people to promise the Marshall heíd get her back to Rocky Creek, it has to be a preacher.
Before long circumstances evolve and miracles happen. And through it all Justin and Sarah realize that their feelings for each other are growing. Justin wants more than anything to save Sarah from the noose but things just donít work that easy in the west.
Will Sarah be able to trust Justin and most of all God so she can stop running from the law? Will Justinís faith be strong enough to believe that all things are possible with God? Will the Prescott gang continue or will Sarah be able to convince them to stop committing the crimes that have them continually on the run?
A Lady Like Sarah is a tender yet action-packed inspirational story. Itís fast moving and kept me turning the pages fast and furious Ė I read this in one weekend. Sarah and Justin are total opposites but yet you can see how they work well together. They inspire each other while giving the reader something to think about; your faith and trust in God.
Margaret Brownley has the knack of describing her scenes with just the right amount of detail with the right descriptions for the circumstances. Margaretís first historical inspirational works from the first page! I totally enjoyed A Lady Like Sarah and was excited to learn that there will be more stories coming from Rocky Creek. I can hardly wait!
