This is my first Love Finds You book but it definitely won't be my last. The characters are well written and the story is a fun, light read. I especially like that it is a Christian Historical Fiction with a message about putting your faith in God. I think this is a book that everyone, no matter their religious beliefs, will enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I really loved the message of this book: trusting God. This is something we all need to work on, and I love the way these authors weaved the storyline and portrayed their characters. Excellent job! The storyline was believable and easy-to-follow, while not being boring in any way. The feelings and dialogue of the characters were also very well done. I loved how they showed that sometimes what we think God wants from us isn't always what He wants from us. Sometimes we allow our fears or something else to blind us to what God really wants for us. The authors did a very good job of showing this problem and how it can affect us and those around us. Add this to your to-read if you haven't already!Was this review helpful?

Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss is one of the best in the Love Finds You series. Julia Cavanaugh is saying good-bye to all that she's known in her life after her benefactor, Mrs. Hamlin, marries and closes the girls' orphanage the two women have run. Julia escorts the remaining girls on an Orphan Train out West finding them good homes with the intention of returning to work in Mrs. Hamlin's home as a domestic, but Mrs. Hamlin has played a trick on her. Julia has been "sold" as a mail-order bride to a filthy and old, but good-hearted, gold prospector in Lonesome Prairie, Montana. Parson Isaac Shepherd does all he can to take care of his beloved flock in the town, and when Julia arrives, that means trying to fix her marital situation. Sparks soon fly between the two, but he's made a promise to never make his preaching suffer by getting married, and she's been promised to another! The Love Finds You series is a throwback to Christian romances of old; nearly everyone is good at heart, and every town is one where the reader would love to relocate. In other volumes in the series, the writing has suffered and been a bit hackneyed, but Goyer and Fleiss make the Old West come to life with their beautiful and stark descriptions of the land and the solitude it creates. The dialogue between Julia and Isaac sparks and zings in a fresh and thoroughly enjoyable manner. The story has some depth with its depiction of prejudice against Native Americans, but its real strength is thelikable characters and sweet romance.Was this review helpful?

Julia Cavanaugh is an orphan, her parents died when she was a young girl and she has lived in an orphanage even since. But now Julia is grown and works in the orphanage taking care of the little girls there, and she loves them like a mother loves her children. Imagine her dismay to learn the orphanage is closing and the children will go on the Orphan Train to the West.
She will travel with them, but a surprise lies in wait for Julia, one she would have never imagined her benefactress Mrs Hamlin arranging. But imagine the horror of finding out that for the price of a ticket from New York, you had been promised in marriage to a prospector/miner. An old one at that.
Follow this story and learn what becomes of the little girls, what becomes of Julia and what exactly takes place in Lonesome Prairie Montana, that changes the lives of many of the citizens there. An exciting story, with a wonderful story of redemption and love. The collaboration of Tricia and Ocieanna is truly the results of a wonderful book. 348 Pages $12.99 US 4 stars
