A Love of Her Own - by Maggie Brendan

About this book:
It’s here, in Lewiston, Montana, where April McBride travels to attend her brother’s wedding. Still cautious after a broken engagement, she fully intends to guard her heart. One look around the small mining town convinces April that doing so won't be difficult—just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with horse trainer Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration.

About the Author:Maggie Brendan is a member of American Christian Writers and the American Fiction Writers Association. She is the author of No Place for a Lady and The Jewel of His Heart and lives in Georgia.

My thoughts:
I will have to be honest when I say that I strongly disliked the main character for the first quarter of the book. April McBride started out being a spoiled rich girl who looked down on all other walks of life and all other races, which is not what I think of when I think of a "Christian" lady, but thankfully my first opinion of the main character didn't last for very long. The author, I believe, was trying to form a clear picture of April so that her transformation throughout this novel would be apparent as she went from a spoiled selfish girl to a thoughtful self-less woman. I especially loved to watch the relationships develop between the boardinghouse owner with April. Their relationship was like meeting a long lost grandmother you never knew you missed until you spent a week learning all of life's lessons from her. I really enjoyed this novel, and only wish I had read the previous 2 books in the series before reading A Love of Her Own, as I think it would have been an enjoyable 3-book series, just based on reading the third in this series!

About the Publisher:Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, offers practical books that bring the Christian faith to everyday life. They publish resources from a variety of well-known brands and authors, including their partnership with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and Hungry Planet.
