Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Becky Haynes went off to college a God-fearing Christian but returns home to Barton Creek, OK, a new and liberated woman. Her change in attitude confuses her family and her longtime friend Rob. Enter a new man in town. Geoff Kensington is handsome and charming, and he has his sights set on Becky. Soon, strange things begin happening around town. Can Rob convince Becky that Geoff is to blame? Can he bring her back to her faith and those who truly care for her? VERDICT Readers who enjoyed the first two novels in this historical Western series (Becoming Lucy; Morning for Dove) will want this, but Rogers is unlikely to earn new fans with her stilted prose and corny dialog. Readers looking for CF historical romances would be better off with the novels of Robin Lee Hatcher or Tracie Peterson.

    Becky

    Book 3 was good. So far book 1 was the best but I like knowing what happens with each of the characters.

    I LOVE this series!!!!

    I absolutely ADORE Martha's work. She is a seasoned author who incorporates God's love in every one of her books. When I open one of her books, it's like coming home each and every time! The hearts of her readers instantly become the characters in her stories, making the readers experience absolutely unforgettable.

    This is a FANTASTIC series. Barton Creek is a town I wish I could be a part of. Finding Becky takes us back to that sweet town, but added to the sweet story is a new character names Geoff Kensington......he brings along some mischief and mayhem when he arrives in town on the same train that brings Becky Haynes back into lovable Rob Frankston's life. But, Becky is long lost, and in her place is Miss Rebecca Haynes, the newly sophisticated woman journalist who's determined to stand up for woman's rights.

    But God, through Rob's affections for her, shows Miss Rebecca Haynes she'll ALWAYS be Becky. Through Rob, God helps Becky find herself, Him, and even true love.

    The spiritual messages once again flow strong, in this addition to Martha Roger's series. I highly recommend this book, along with Becoming Lucy and Morning for Dove, with 5 stars and two thumbs up. Book 4, Caroline's Choice, sounds just as fantastic and I can't wait to dive in!

    Western romance

    Finding Becky is the third book in the series Winds Across the Prairie by Martha Rogers. I read Morning Dove and really enjoyed it better that I did this one. I like the older historical storied better than in the 1900 ones. This one took place in 1905 in the Oklahoma territory before it became a state the the women suffrage movement was in full force.

    Rebecca Haynes had just returned home from college in Boston and had a joy in the local newspaper, but she was really into the suffrage movement. She believed that woman should have the right to vote and should be able to get a job and get paid as much as a man. She had a long time beau waiting on her at home but had met a man on the train by the name of Geoff Kensington that was going to her home town, but he didn't look like a cowboy, so what was he going to do there? Rebecca (Becky) started dining and going riding with him, so her beau Rob Frankston the lawyer did not take to that very well. He had always loved her, even when they were children so it had always been his intent to marry her, but she wanted to be independent.


    As the story progresses Rebecca get more involved with the newspaper in town that she works for and had gotten away from God. Geoff didn't believe either and on Sunday he would ride our to the Haynes ranch and nosy around so what was he after? He had come to town to buy beef but that had already been taken care of and he was still going out to the ranch to see where the neighbors had tried to farm but nothing would grow so they had sold off their land to the Haynes and two other ranchers, but they had to keep their cattle out from that place as even the water was bad. Bad things begin to happen at the Haynes ranch, cattle were killed and left, their barn had been set on fire, so what was behind all of this? Could it be Geoff, the new man in town or was is someone else?


    You need to buy this book and read the continuing series of Winds Across the Prairie.

    Finding Becky

    Finding Becky is the 3rd book in the Winds Across The Praire series, but can easily be read as a stand alone book! I had no problems jumping right into this story.

    When Rebecca Haynes returns home to Barton Creek after spending four years back east procuring a degree in jounalism, her friends notice that she has changed. First off they had always called her Becky but she informs them she wants to be called Rebecca, she also comes off much more independant and confident, but the biggest change they seem to notice is the fact that her faith in God has changed. She seems to have grown away from the faith she had grown up with, she now believes that people make their own choices and therefore decide their own fate. That God is only there if things go wrong. While back east she also became immersed in womans suffrage movement. She hopes that the job that she has landed with the Barton Creek Cronicle will allow her to write articles that might further help the womens movement.

    Rob Frankston has loved Becky since they were 13 years old, she has never shown more than a friendly interest in him, but he has always been determined that they might marry someday. He becomes jealous of Geoff, a man that came to town on the same train Becky did. Geoff says he is there to purchase cattle but Rob is sure there is more to his story.

    Can Rob help Becky find her faith, and perhaps win her heart?

    Historical Christian Romance Fiction is one of my favorite genre's to read, and Martha Rogers writing is perfect. This was my first opprotunity to read her writing and now I want to read everything she has written. She writes in such a way that her characters personalities just jump off of the page, I also enjoyed the romantic tension between the main characters.

    I also loved the secondary characters in the book and can't wait to read Caroline's Choice the next book in this series, which is due out Jan 14th 2011.
