From Franciscan Media, September 2016:
The poignant story of one child... one town... and her dream of belonging to someone who will love her just as she is.
Bringing to mind classics like Catherine Marshall’s Christy, society’s standards are put to the test and a Northern Appalachian town comes together to save a neglected child in Ruth Logan Herne’s new romance, "The First Gift."
ABOVE: Emily Gallagher and Grant McCarthy are planning a wedding together—just not their own. Emily's well-structured life is turned upside-down when her company is hired to help Grant put together his deployed sister's nuptials. Because as Emily spends more time with Grant and his adorable twins, she can't help but daydream about being at the altar herself. But Emily's ex-beauty-queen status brings Grant memories of his children's appearance-obsessed mother—a woman who walked out on their family. For a future with Emily, can Grant escape the confines of his painful past? If he can, the next wedding they plan could be their own…
In the poignant Biblical story of "The Prodigal Son", most folks focus their attention on the son who took the money and ran off to seek his own fortunes... But there was another son affected by all of this... a conflicted son who stayed the
course, wishing things were different.
"Home on the Range" is his story.
Nick Stafford stayed in Central Washington, working his family’s large ranch after his brothers left to pursue other passions—but his toughest job has always been being a single dad. He watched his father fail at marriage and parenting, so Nick is determined to show him up. He'll be a better husband, father, and ranch manager than Sam Stafford ever was. Yet despite that commitment, three years after his wife left him, he has a daughter in trouble at school and both girls are facing issues that force him to rethink his stubborn plans.
For Dr. Elsa Andreas, life fell apart when tragedy caused her to abandon her family therapy practice and retreat to the backwoods of Gray’s Glen. Her school principal sister believes Elsa can guide the Stafford girls, and that working with kids will draw Elsa out of her protective bubble.
Summer on the Double S teems with life and adventure. Amidst the bounty of God and land, will Nick and Elsa find the courage to build futures based in faith rather than fear?
ABOVE: "The First Gift", a beautiful story available September of 2016 in bookstores across the nation and online
