If you like historical western romances, you will like this story. The characters that were introduced in book one were in this book as well. This story builds on book one, so they should be read in order. Romans 8:1 tells us “Therefore, there in now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. The story focuses on the relationships the women have with men who have made mistakes, have asked Jesus into their lives and are trying to move past them.
I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network for an honest review.
