    A slice of life and history beautifully told

    Lynnette Bonner's Rocky Mountain Oasis starts with simple descriptions and dialog that immediately create a beautiful impression of time and place: An Idaho town composed mostly of men; a Chinese drug-lord; Indian women being cheated out of payment for their garden produce; and a mail-order bride. The cauldron of mixed ethnicities, trenchant bigotries, goodwill, and bad memories is ready to be stirred.

    Sky Jordan wanted to be a sheriff like his father, but moved to Pierce City to make sure his less amenable cousin Jason had family nearby. Brooke has known so much trouble at the hands of men she's unwilling to trust anyone but resigns herself to being sold into a loveless marriage. And then love blooms.

    Sky prays, while cousin Jason denies his upbringing and his faith, and Brooke can only imagine that God is determined to punish her. But events overtake all three of them, and prayer brings its own reward.

    Perhaps the most interesting part of the tale was learning how law and justice were done in old Idaho; the final notes in the book reveal that these details are based very solidly on fact. More than the movies, this story brings the whole situation to life, and is truly fascinating. But the sorry history is only part of the tale, and the blessed touch of faith in God brings this exciting adventure tale to a satisfying conclusion filled with hope and love.

    I enjoyed this book and plan to look out for more in this Shepherd's Heart series by Lynnette Bonner.
