Lifting Lock Runner (Landscapes of Mercy) (Volume 5)

By Cindy M. Amos


~Where the right heart connection can lift the heavy spirit~ Stationed at the locks leading to Lake Okeechobee, Florida, Fallon McKenzie admires the heroic rescue of a disabled boater as the lock rises with floodwater. In the right place at the right time, Bait Crate shop owner Court Reynolds offers to take Fallon around to her lake checkpoints after the surplus boat is docked, which leads to a sunset dinner invitation. Court’s lifelong ties in his coastal community of Port Salerno start to fray with one neglect-driven catastrophe after another. Fallon lures Court inland with the suggestion of expanding business to include corporate fishing frolics at her horse ranch in Loxahatchee. Despite promising success, a deep wound cuts at the family’s wellness. Fallon seizes the moment to save Court, but trouble in uniform lurks ahead, right when her guard is down. Fallon’s love lifts Court with her lyrical boatman’s renderings, but can he rally to play the hero’s part one more time? A lake lends tranquility only when the heart can be lifted up above the mounting floodwaters.

Book Takeaway:

Follow God's leading and seize the moment to effect change in a crumbling situation that ultimately proves God's faithfulness.

Why the author wrote this book:

To show how fallible it can be to trust in something else besides God to be your rock. The heroine hides behind her uniform to escape harm, while the hero substitutes a familiar homeplace for a better horizon promised by God.
