5 StarsLoved this book!
A young preacher comes to a small Texas town to take charge of an established but dying church. Well, maybe “take charge” isn’t exactly accurate…Adam Jordan is young and not very experienced. But he is within the congregation’s budget. Adam faces his first true test when faced with The Widows, Birdie and Mercedes, a dynamic duo with definite ideas on how the church should be run as well as an agenda to get their new pastor married ASAP. Which may prove to be difficult, given the scarcity of available women in the area. An added obstacle to their matchmaking is that Adam seems determined to find his own wife. Adam learns quickly to stand his ground with The Widows…at least on the important things. He tolerates their furnishing the parsonage. After all, furniture is much more comfortable than bare wood floors. But Adam asserts himself in his stubborn determination not to be a victim of Birdie and Mercedes’ matchmaking. He manages to fill the pastor’s shoes very well, while establishing his own unique style of leadership with his church. Adam learns that sometimes it’s better not to come in knowing too much. Then you don’t realize that you’re attempting the impossible. This delightful story, the first of a series of three, is full of wonderful, loveable characters, both primary and secondary. You can’t help but like these people, warts and all. But all is not sweetness and light in this small town. The first person Adam is called to minister to is Sam, a troubled Marine amputee grappling with the multitude of problems associated with trying to live in the “real” world after being immersed in the trauma of war. Jane manages to balance all of these things with a light touch, bringing faith and love and hope together into a wonderful, well-knit book. I can’t wait to read the next one! Will Birdie be able to get Adam married off, which is now her primary goal in life? That’s only one of the questions to be answered. Stay tuned for more!
