    More of a 2.5 because I kept wanting to slap the heroine in the face for acting like a five-year-old. I liked her quite a bit once she acted more adult. There was a lot of stuff going on in the story, and I felt like the bit with the cattle rustlers was more of a minus than a plus because it really threw in all the stereotypical “western” sort of things and it didn’t honestly advance the plot at all. I really liked all the Scripture lessons in it, though. I’ll be reading more in the series.

    A Place to Belong is the first section in this book of four novels. It is fabulous. The story is about a young girl who has one thing in common with her father, they both lost her mother and brother in childbirth. He left and the girl, Maggie, was raised by her paternal grandmother. Years go by with bitterness left unresolved until the father tries and tries again to win over the love of his missed daughter. Only on his deathbed does he start to get through to her with his dearest friend and A Place to Belong is the first section in this book of four novels. It is fabulous.

Only on his deathbed does he start to get through to her with his dearest friend and basically adopted son, Garrett Lucas; and then Maggie begins to find love both in the eyes of her father, the arms of Garrett Lucas and in the heart of God.

    Every human has the need to belong and Maggie was no different. She felt comfortable being with her grandmother in the city. In her child's mind she had felt guilty she was alive n her mother n brother dead. Her father abandoning her in his grief. But he was wanting to make it right. The story is a Gomer n Hosea story,in that the father sent Garrett to bring Maggie home to New Mexico before he died. Maggie only wants to stay with grandmother, but has only two hours to get packed n on the train. Every human has the need to belong and Maggie was no different.

Maggie only wants to stay with grandmother, but has only two hours to get packed n on the train. To leave the known to the unknown is risky for all of us. When Garrett tells Maggie he was going to be her husband n he wouldn't do that until she reconciled with her father n was saved n friends with God. Maggie has a lot to decide so the story begins.

    This book was written by Georgia Williamson's granddaughter. We deliver books to Georgia in Topeka. The book was pretty good. A girl goes out west to live with her father who she doesn't know. The girl falls in love with the ranch hand . . . Now almost a decade after I read this book I find out that Janelle Jamison is now Tracie Peterson! Georgia Williamson would be so proud.

    Faith Found Stories about stubborn self absorbed people aren't always fun to read but this one is full of truth and flows so sweetly into the miracles that happen when faith is found and Jesus is the answer.
