To Claim Her Heart

By Jodie Wolfe

Description:

In 1893, on the eve of the great race for land, Benjamin David prays for God to guide him to his ‘Promised Land’. Finding property and preaching to the lost are his only ways of honoring his deceased fiancée, but he didn’t count on Elmer (Elsie) Smith claiming the same plot and refusing to leave. Not only is she a burr in his side, but she is full of the homesteading know-how he sadly lacks.

Obtaining a claim in the Cherokee Strip Land Run is Elsie Smith’s only hope for survival, but not just any plot will do. She has a specific one in mind. The plot’s not only a way to honor her pa and his life, but also to provide a livelihood for herself. Elsie’s willing to do whatever it takes to get that piece of property, and she determined to keep it, but she wasn’t planning on a kind, handsome preacher standing in her way.

Her bitterness is what protects her, and she has no intentions of allowing that preacher to lay claim to her land … or her heart.

Book Takeaway:

We face lots of difficulties on this earth. Some define us and some try to rip us apart and destroy us. The important thing is to leave those struggles in God's hands and not allow yourself to become bitter.

Why the author wrote this book:

My mother-in-law was the one who introduced me to the history of the Cherokee Strip Land Run in 1893. I wrote this book for her.
