Just in time for the beginning of summer is Karen Witemeyer's Stealing the Preacher. Set in 1885 Texas, the book has a delightful start as Crockett Archer is forced from a train at gun point on his way to interview for a preaching position in order to fulfill a birthday wish. Surely this wasn't part of God's plan for his life.
Joanna Robbins has been praying for a preacher to come and minister to the needs of her community and bring life back into the church that has been abandoned. Maybe in the process a man of God can also help her to accomplish the promise she made to her mother. If only she can convince Crockett that God may have different plans in mind for him.
I always enjoy reading Karen's books, and Stealing the Preacher was no exception. If you need a break from the heat of the summer, this book will provide the enjoyment you need.
