A Lady Like Sarah
Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life; just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot straight.
Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying US Marshall at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.
His high society expectations and Sarah's outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and a sweet orphan in tow, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There justice will be meted out hopefully with a portion of grace.

Watch the Book Trailer:
When I was a little girl we would watch Hee Haw. Do you remember that show? It had a song that said, "Gloom, despair and agony on me. Deep, dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me." When I started reading this book, I couldn't stop thinking about that snog. Poor Sarah just had it rough.
She had jumped off into quicksand in her life and every move just got her deeper and deeper in the "excessive misery". She needs someone to help her out. Give her a chance. Who is that person? A pastor who is thrown into the quicksand with her. Kind of reminded me of a quirky western version of the Good Samaritan.
