Dawn Comes Early

What makes a beautiful and talented young girl want to forgo the chance of being married to become a ranch owner? And what happens when she meets the kind of man she never dreamed could exist? Will she stick to her guns or yield to love’s temptation?

Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley is a good old-fashioned western romance laced with plenty of surprises and humor.

Kate Tenney is a writer who finds herself in straights when her novel is banned. Needing security and purpose, she answers an ad seeking an heiress for The Last Chance Ranch in Arizona. Only there’s a catch. If she passes the grueling trial period and is accepted, the contract mandates that she remain single. Not a problem for Kate since she doesn’t trust men anyway. Her real problem is whether she can master ranch life enough to be chosen as heiress—or so she thinks.

Then along comes Luke Adams . . . and Kate finds herself with a man-sized problem.

Not only is Brownley’s storyline tender, suspenseful and humorous, but her characters are masterfully crafted with their own individual personalities and idiosyncrasies. A delightful read.

I received this book as a Thomas Nelson Booksneeze blogger.

True Woman 101: Divine Design

When society revamps womanhood in a way that opposes the Maker’s original design, the world falls apart.

If you’re disturbed by where today’s culture is headed – an increase in divorce, dysfunctional families, gender blending etc – then here’s a book that offers solutions, True Woman 101: Divine Design – An Eight-Week Study on Biblical Womanhood by Mary A Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

True Woman 101: Divine Design is a Bible-based workbook, which can be used by individuals or in a group setting. The book divulges the dilemma – the distortion of womanhood, which ultimately breeds dissatisfaction – and presents the solution – biblical womanhood.

Through the study of Scripture, Kassian and DeMoss show how men and women are inherently different. From the onset, the sexes were designed to complement one another and glorify God. And although the fall has messed up the picture, the original design cannot be ignored. Each man and woman is unique, but with a gender-specific purpose. As each embraces their God-ordained role, they find satisfaction and God is glorified.

Women are not less than men; God created them to complete the picture of Himself. This happens as men and women relate and interact in the way He intended.

True Woman 101: Divine Design is an attractively laid-out biblical discovery of the wonder of womanhood, an exploration of the true emancipation women can enjoy as they relish their role as a reflection of the bride of Christ.

Every woman, teenage girl and some men would benefit from this book (as would the women in their lives). True Woman 101: Divine Design has the potential to change history and bring true liberation through the Christ-centered counter-revolution it is sparking.
