I have a question for you! What makes you feel like a work of fiction was worth your time reading it? In other words, what makes a good read for you?
There are many things that make a book a good read for me. Depth of character as well as realistic, relatable characters -- not to mention story line. But one of the biggest things for me is this. I know thta this book is a good read for me when I get to the end of the book and wish that I knew the 'rest of the story'! That is exactly what happened with Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana. I found that I didn't want to stop reading about Pastor Ike and Miss Julia Cavenaugh. I wanted to know the rest of the story of their lives. What's next for them? What's next for the people of Lonesome Prairie? That, for me, is a good read. This story is heartwarming and real and I love historical fiction. I really do hope that when I get to heaven I can sit and watch movies of what really happened for the people who were homesteaders of this great country of ours. I also wanna watch movies of Jesus and the disciples, and Moses, and Noah among others -- but back to the book! Thank you, Litfuse, for providing this book for me to read and review!
Ya'll check it out!!!

Imagine her horror when she discovers that she's to be "delivered," too--as bride to an uncouth miner! But with no return fare, Julia's options are bleak.
What does God have planned for her on the lonesome prairies of Montana?
