Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be dismayed. God knows the plans he has for me. He will never leave me or forsake me. He will be with me to the ends of the earth.

These words have become words to live by for Tess, who jumps the train in Omaha to get away from her abusive step-father. Needless to say, she is repeatedly reminded of these words as she arrives in Laramie instead of Chicago! Life in the Wild West is not at all what she expected. But those words come back again and again to call to mind who she belongs to.

The train tracks continue to get laid, and the partying, gambling, violence and death seem to follow the tracks as well. Lawlessness abounds and affects all who live in the surrounding area. Will Laramie ever become a place of peace where young families can raise their children? What will happen to Tess - will God really take care of her?

This ARC was received through Elk Lake Publishing and CelebrateLit. The comments, impressions and rating are my own and were in way solicited. ( )

Imagine living with a mother who appears to be weak and a stepfather who resonates with anger and stays drunk. This set of circumstances faces Tess, and on her seventeenth birthday she flees for her life by jumping on a train she believes will take her east. Unfortunately, she winds up further west instead in Laramie. This book illustrates the best and worst in human nature. It also shows God’s grace and mercy. It also shows how God has a perfect plan for our lives, even when we can not recognize it.

Brett Calloway takes Tess into his home, and she finds him stealing a part of her heart. I appreciate how she seeks God’s will for her life. I also appreciate the description of the town, the people, and Brett’s special place where he goes to commune with God.

The men in this book who resonate with goodness and God’s presence in their lives make this book worth reading. The men who resonate with evil and anger portray that fact well. I have to say, I definitely enjoyed reading this book. I think one of my favorite parts comes from Brett Calloway’s mother and sister arriving in Laramie.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Wow. This book has been a real adventure into the Old West. I don’t think I have read a book quite so realistic as this one that depicts the time period so precisely. I completely submerged myself in this story and felt like I was given a front row seat to a Western movie. Times were hard in those days and everyone worked tirelessly to gain a little bit of land for themselves.

The beginning of the book was heartbreaking as we witness the ruthless treatment that Tess endured at the hands of her step-father. He was such a mean spirited person that just reading his name made my skin crawl. It was no accident that Tess found herself in a train going to Laramie. She thinks that she has landed in the wrong town, but God had a plan for her. I admired her determination and deep faith. Being a young lady, she definitely had more courage than most her age. I cheered when she was finally away from the man who caused her pain everyday.

The town was quite a sight to see through the eyes of Tess. It looks like a booming town, but just under the layer of dirt lay an evil presence. Men were desperate to steal, kill and destroy for their gain. Brett was a breath of fresh air as he took Tess under his wings. I loved how Brett became a protector for Tess and would do anything to make her happy. He is like a silent presence that stands guard over those he loves.

There is much going on in the town as killings start happening by a group of greedy men. I knew trouble was brewing and the author doesn’t disappoint with his vivid description of a town in turmoil. I can’t imagine living in a time when there was danger at every turn. The story is a wonderful example of trusting God and finding peace in His presence. I’m sad to see the story end as I wanted to continue my journey with Brett and Tess.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )
