I normally do not read western stories but thought I would venture out and give this one a try. I am so glad I did as I loved this book! The story begins in Fort Worth, Texas during a weeklong revival meeting. Reverend Gregory Miller is struggling because he broke up with a woman he loved, Elizabeth Princeton. He describes her as “reckless” and for this reason he believes he cannot be with her. Reverend Miller is sitting around a campfire with four other preachers. His private conversation with God becomes known to the other preachers when Reverend Miller unknowingly speaks some of his thoughts out loud. As Reverend Miller explains to the other preachers why he cannot be with Elizabeth they each decide to share a story of unlikely couples.
The book is comprised of four novellas telling the stories of Rylan and Maizy, Jack and Molly, Treb and Katie, and Brock and Grace. Each couple has their own unique set of circumstances that bring them together. Rylan and Maizy are brought together because of her reckless ways. Jack and Molly are brought together by him being hired for a job that she thought should have been given to her. Treb and Katie are brought together by tragic circumstances which lead to a road of healing. Brock and Grace are brought together by a request from a young boy who happens to be Grace’s son. In case you are wondering, there is an epilogue which tells what happens with Reverend Miller and Elizabeth.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more western romances!
