Rocky Mountain Oasis

By Lynnette Bonner


She's been living in a desert all her life. Suddenly she's come upon an oasis. But is it just a mirage?

Idaho Territory, 1885.

Brooke Marie Baker, eighteen, has been sent west as a mail-order bride. As the stage nears Greer's Ferry, where she is to meet the man she's pledged to marry, she tries to swallow the lump of nervousness in her throat. Can it be any worse than living with Uncle Jackson...or Hank? she wonders. All men are the same, aren't they? But with her parents and sister dead, she has no choice.

Sky Jordan, a rancher, holds a single, yellow daisy in his hand as he watches the ferry cross the river. Ever since he'd found out his surly cousin, Jason, had sent for a mail-order bride, his mind and heart had been ill at ease. No woman deserves to be left with the likes of Jason. But now he questions his own plans to claim the bride for himself. Why am I drawn to this woman I don't even know?

A wounded heart. Desperate choices. Unfathomable love. Set in the adventure and danger of the Wild West. Book One, The Shepherd's Heart series.

"An intriguing tale with the perfect blend of suspense, drama, and romance. Best keep your eyes on Lynnette Bonner. She's a gifted storyteller." -SHARLENE MACLAREN, Author, Through Every Storm, Long Journey Home, Little Hickman Creek Series, The Daughters of Jacob Kane Series

Book Takeaway:

I hope people will gain a closer walk with the One who longs for a closer walk with them.

Why the author wrote this book:

I was going through a bit of a difficult time when I wrote Rocky Mountain Oasis. Honestly, I think this story was as much for me, as for others, at the time of its writing. It is a reminder that, no matter what you are going through, or have been through, Jesus is still the answer. There is no problem that He can't solve. No issue that He can't relate to. No person too far gone for Him to love.
