This is the first book in Martha's very first published series, which is entitled Winds Across the Prairie. I look forward to reading many more of her heart-warming books.
Here's the official blurb: In 1896, after her parents' deaths, seventeen-year-old Lucinda Bishop is sent to Oklahoma to live with her aunt and uncle. But Oklahoma ranch life brings her more than she bargained for when she meets ranch hand Jake Starnes, a drifter who is running from his past. As her friendship with Jake grows, Lucinda faces emotions she's never before experienced. As Jake learns more about God's love for him, he realizes he must face his past and the consequences of his actions, even if it means he will lose the girl he loves. Will he be able to get his life together before someone else claims her hand... or even her life?
