This is going to be difficult for me but I think I'm up to the challenge. Understand, I am a wise woman of strong opinions. :-) After all, when I'm right, I'm right, right? ;-) So many people seem to be in a quandary as to voting this year.  Personally, I've just about tuned out the entire horse race.  Yet within me is the conviction that vote I must.

Rebecca's Crossing

Rebecca's Crossing

Book 8 - Serenity Inn Series
Pacific Press Publishing • 2011

At nineteen, Rebecca Cunard, youngest child of Eli and Fay Cunard is a feisty and independent young woman.  More at home in her prospector's garb than the lacy dresses she wears to work at Joe Master's mercantile store.

One fateful day, her rash words force her to flee from home under the cover of darkness.  Under the watchful eye and protection of Hobie Masters, her childhood faithful friend.    Rebecca starts out on a journey that takes her from Placerville, California to Independence, Missouri and and the safety of Serenity Inn and her brother Caleb.

On the brutal twenty-four day trip, Rebecca makes friends with her fellow travelers, including the charming Bo Devers from Tennessee.  Aggie, a motherly type, notes the growing attraction between Rebecca and Bo, and sagely observes, "Never forget that no matter how briliantly brass may shine, it ain't gold and never will be."

Rebecca's Crossing is the uplifting story of a young woman who struggles to accept that trust is not a sign of weakness, and surrendering to God is the surest way to accomplish all things in His strength.
