Sonora has been running, from God and
the father of her child, for a long time and is found bloody
and beaten outside her uncle’s burned-out cabin. She is
found just in time to save her life. When she wakes up, she
realizes that her young son is missing, and she has no idea
why anyone would take him.
Captain Jonathan Parker is in charge
of an outpost in The Dakota Territory where Sonora is found
and is instantly drawn to her. He is unsure of the feelings
she stirs in him, but Jonathan knows that God will guide
him. When Timmy is found, and Sonora runs away with the
boy, Jonathan knows she is hiding secrets, but he leans on
his faith to turn everything right.
Sonora is a very good
story about faith and trusting God. It is so easy to say
you believe that He will protect you and be there for you
until it is time to step out in faith. While some
situations seemed extremely unlikely, including the forward
thinking with many of the characters' view on the father's
rights issues I very much liked the character development.
This was the first book I have read by this author and I
fully intend to keep my eye out for more.
