WHAT READERS ARE SAYING...
"I recommend Crossroads as a good clean, often humorous Christian romance."
"I love that the author tackled the weighty issues in this book. I usually read to leave the hard parts of daily life behind me, but she handled those hard parts with grace and truth and enhanced the story. A Texas setting is a favorite of mine too. Bravo!"
"I absolutely loved this book. I laughed and cried. I cheered and felt as much hopelessness as Mara. Her slow turning was heart wrenching...and humbling...what an awesome God we serve."
"Cathy Bryant gives the reader a story that will touch the heart and remind you to give praise to God for all His blessings."
"This is a very touching story and so well written, I cried in parts."
"Crossroads is one of those books that comes along and quickly finds its way into your heart. From the first page I found myself thoroughly immersed in the characters and their stories. We feel their heartaches, their fears, their struggles....I laughed, I cried, and felt like I took the journey with them. I am now a die-hard Cathy Bryant fan, and can't wait to read more of her books."
"If life has treated you roughly lately, if your faith has been on a downward trend, scoop up this book, start reading it, and don't put it down, literally EVER...Probably one of the best books I have ever encountered."

This is a great writing of true, godly forgiveness!
Have doubts about God? About Jesus? Why things are happening to you or a loved one? Those in this story walked down that path and found their answers. Hope you will too.
Reading my way through the Miller's Creek Series and LOVING it! This book is as good as the rest. You will want to start with the first in the series Texas Roads; even though they are stand alone books it is great to get the feel for the people in this community by reading the books in order. This is great inspirational romantic fiction with a bit of suspense. The characters are realistic and many of them live out their Christian faith.
Loved it, it was such a blessing. Thank you!
Emotionally gripping! The description of this book at the top of the page is sufficient. I will not repeat it or add information that could lead to spoilers. Cathy Bryant has created two very strong characters who are each struggling with difficult circumstances. Each at a crossroads in life, they are forced to make choices and decisions that affect not only themselves but their respective daughters. The author portrays her characters with depth and perception, with realistic personalities, honest reactions to life's obstacles, and believable emotions. Issues of faith are a point of paramount significance in this story of Carter and Mara. Miller's Creek is defined as a small country community nestled in a lovely setting with a creek running alongside the town and its people. The landscape is depicted in a picturesque manner, sweeping the reader into the setting with ease and appeal. Relationships are often tense and opposing, as well as compassionate, loving and possessing a strength of family. The lives of the characters in "Crossroads" are often represented with a very open and raw truth, resulting in great emotional responses for the reader. Realism is a very strong characteristic throughout this book, and the battle with good and evil is relevant. Issues of faith are the threads that bind these people together and yet, a broken thread could unravel the strongest character. Emotions run high in this read, so be sure to have the tissues at hand. I found myself in tears numerous times as I read this moving story of overcoming life's most difficult obstacles. I also laughed through some of the lighthearted and humorous sides to these wonderful characters. I highly recommend this well-written Christian novel. It could change your life!
