A Rancher’s Mission
As a volunteer at the Lone Star Cowboy League Boys Ranch, Tanner Barstow helps the troubled young residents turn their lives around. When a local rancher dies and leaves his large property to the boys ranch, Tanner finds himself spending a lot of time with Macy Swanson, whose orphaned nephew, Colby, lives at the ranch. Tanner’s attracted to the newcomer, but she doesn’t fit his plans. Macy longs to have Colby come home with her, but the former city girl worries she won’t be the mother he deserves. Can Tanner help her see that the future she and Colby need is right here—with him?
I’m so glad to have another opportunity to participate in a continuity. Lone Star Cowboy League: Boys Ranch takes you to Haven, Texas, deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country.
The characters in this book quickly became special to me. There were moments that their journey took me by surprise. I hope that you’ll love Macy, Tanner and Colby as much as I do and that the lessons they learn about grief, faith and finding peace will touch your heart and life.
I know from experience that there are so many children in placements like the LSCL Boys Ranch. They’re waiting to go home, waiting to find homes and trying to find peace. If this book touches your heart, then allow your life to touch the lives of those children in the foster care system.
