Betrayal by Robin Lee Hatcher


I'm giving away a copy of this book and the first book, Belonging, in the Where the Heart Lives series to one lucky reader! Leave a comment if you are interested, I'll pick a winner on January 7th.

Betrayal is the second book in Robin Lee Hatcher's Where the Heart Lives series. The story is set in the western United States during the turn of the century. A lone wanderer finds himself on the ranch of a young widow. Not knowing why, he asks her for help and she agrees to give it to him. The two of them are both Christians, but have the shared experience of developing their faith in a very private way, he because he had no one to share it with while on a journey to find his sisters and she because of being in an abusive relationship with her husband for many years.
The two of them learn to express their faith together and become much more than land owner and cow hand. Through the story, they begin to care for one another and fall in love.
The story is an enjoyable read with many reminders that God has better plans than we do. And that sometimes, we have to give up things that we hold dear, in order to gain something that is even better.
If you want to take a little journey into the days of the pioneers and cow ranchers, this will be a nice adventure.

Copies of this book were given to me by Zondervan for the purpose of review as well as an additional copy to share. I'm never obligated to say nice things about the books that I read.
