Rocky Mountain Dreams (Love Inspired Historical)
HIS SURPRISE SISTER The last thing Joseph Stone expects to discover upon arriving in Leadville, Colorado, is a newfound little sister. Hoping to find his late father's silver mine and hopefully keep his siblings back home out of an orphanage, Joseph needs an ally. The preacher's lovely daughter agrees to care for the little girl. She's just not as willing to trust the prospector…. Annabelle Lassiter has seen what men do in pursuit of riches. Yet for all the hardship he's known, Joseph still shows tenderness and warmth. Annabelle's plan has long been to leave Leadville far behind. But Joseph's quest for silver could cost them a more precious dream—one of family, love and new beginnings….
God has a deep abiding love for all his people.
Why the author wrote this book:
I read an article in a historical newspaper advertising a debate between two pastors to determine whether or not miners were beyond salvation. I thought it was interesting to note that back then, certain classes of people were thought of as beyond God's reach. I wanted to write a book featuring a ministry to people beyond God's reach.
