Becoming Lucy becomes its author!

I just finished reading a lovely book entitled Becoming Lucy by my good friend Martha Rogers. This compelling adventure takes the reader back to the Old West, where danger. . .and love. . .lurked around every corner. Orphaned heiress Lucinda Bishop leaves her beautiful Boston home for the wilds of Oklahoma Territory, where she hopes to heal from her losses in the company of her loving relatives. But adjusting to the rough western lifestyle is the least of her challenges. Too many accidents happen around Lucy, as if someone is trying to kill her. But the most dangerous part of her adventure is falling for Jake Starnes, a handsome cowboy with a past. I heartily recommend Becoming Lucy to anyone who loves action, adventure, and romance.

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?
