Do this for him, for yourself ... your papa is a good man.

This is where Jack Brennan, freighter for the nearby mining towns, comes in.

, the third book in the
Fountain Creek Chronicles
, takes us back to Willow Creek and revisits beloved characters from the previous two books in the series,
. Tamera Alexander has the remarkable ability to create places, and characters who endear themselves to us, even those just briefly mentioned. If I had lived in the late 1800s, I would love to have met these people and would surely have been inspired by the way they lived out their faith.
is a delightful read, well-researched and well-written. I expect to see great things from this author in the future.
