Wild Montana Skies
By Susan May Warren
And Susan May Warren does it again! She has penned a novel that had my attention at the first chapter and continually pulled me further into the story. Wild Montana Skies introduces a new series, Montana Rescue, and it definitely starts off with a bang. We get to meet so many intriguing characters, see two people find their way, as well as the start of a mystery.
Kacey Fairing has come home, but for how long she isn't sure. Her days of flying choppers in the military have taught her a lot, but it didn't prepare her for running into Ben King, her ex-boyfriend. It doesn't help that he is country music star extraordinaire, or that she never told him about his daughter, 13 year old Audrey. And while he is only planning on being home for a small amount of time to help his dad, things don't always go as planned.
These two people, Kacey and Ben, are so complex. There were times that I expected Kacey to do something and instead she goes a different route. And Ben is super sweet, though a very intense guy. I loved their chemistry together and let me tell you, it don't get any better than a hero rescuing his true love :) There is a lot of sound wisdom given in this book and two of my favorite quotes are below.
"People think that faith, especially as we face our fears, or hold on to our dreams, is for the weak, the pitiful. People who are afraid or indecisive. But in fact, having faith is the bravest thing we can do. It's the unwavering confidence that God loves us. That although we can't see the road ahead, we can see God. A God we know, a God that loves us - so much that he won't give up on us. Won't let us get lost, even when we think we are. Real faith takes everything you have - throwing your life, your heart, everything you are, with complete abandon into the embrace of God."
"How about this- let's not let our past determine whether God loves us or not. He does. And we'll never get it right without him."
This is a story of redemption. Of second chances and being able to move forgive past mistakes. I found myself looking at my past, and how I forgive when someone comes to me after they have wronged me. And it goes the other way as well. An excellent story from Susan Warren, but again, what else do you expect? Five star for sure!
