The Marshal's Promise by Rhonda Gibson

My review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, The Marshal's Promise. I really enjoy Rhonda's westerns. This one is well written, has intriguing characters, and is faith based. I love that about her work. I love books about the mail-order brides, I can't imagine how desperate a woman would have to be to commit yourself to a man she has never met. Now you see the same spirit in the internet matches. It works for some and some are destroyed. Although I have been divorced forty-four years and I had to raise four children alone, I have never been that desperate.

Rebecca Ramsey loses her mother and her father remarries. Her step mother does everything in her power to get rid of this daughter.(Wicked Step-Mother Syndrome) including forcing her to answer an ad for a mail-order bride. After exchanging letters for awhile she sets out to marry Jesse Cole. A man who had promised to love and care for her but when she arrives she finds that Jesse was killed in a bank robbery. Unable to return home she accepts a job of housekeeping for the U.S. Marshal.

U.S. Marshal Seth Billings shot Jesse during a bank robbery. Jesse looked to be one of the robbers and Seth had no choice but to shoot him but after Jesse died in his arms begging him to care for Rebecca, Seth finds out he has shot an unarmed man. He promises to care for Rebecca but it is soon evident that the gang Jesse had been a part of was after Rebecca. Now he must keep her safe without losing his heart.

A great story of faith, forgiveness, and one that will warm your heart. You can order the book at the address below.
