This contemporary (circa 1997) romance is set in and near San Antonio, and has the definite feel of all things Texas, right down to the yellow roses. The main characters, Sam and Lexa, are immediately drawn to each other in a Texas-size way en route to a work camp that's also a Christian mission, which Sam heads. They are just down right cute together, although not entirely compatible at the get-go, and later on issues of mistrust and words spoken in haste divide them. When adversity comes their way, the bond they had formed early on and that grew during their weeks of service together serves to strengthen and sustain their love for one another. The sweet ending was also a TX-scale event. There's no doubt these two are a duo to deal with.

What you're looking for
If you want a Christian romance that sizzles, godly characters that make big mistakes, and humor that makes you chuckle out loud, look no further. Joann Durgin's Awakening is novel with Texas-sized quality.
