Granny M Dreams

I love living in Texas.  There is no where else I could ever imagine having my home or my family at.  I don't know weather it is the big ol skies we have reaching across the prairie or if it could be that you never know just what is going to be right around the next corner here.  We are a mix up of all types of lands from mountains to forest to harbors to hills.  But most of all Texas is home to strong women who have learned how to make something out of lil of nothing and passed that 'stick-to-it' attitude down from generation to generation.

Granny M is just that type of woman.  She would make something happen whenever she has a good mind to get the place jumping.  It is that can do attitude that I admire the most.  She saw much of herself in Margaret from Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble.  Being raised in West Texas where you work from sun up to sun down to keep food on the table, that is just like the life that is told here. Granny M also knows how it feels to desire a strong loving man to lead the home.  She also gave up on that dream...deciding she could do it on her own better than any one else.  But Colleen shows a dream that maybe, just maybe there really is a good man out there who can make one feel Safe in His Arms.

Safe in His Arms
Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O’Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she’s made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She’s convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.
So when Margaret’s father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she’s frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she’s downright worried. Daniel swears he’s not involved, but Margaret’s not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic “accidents” threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.

Thanks so to the Litfuse Chicks and Thomas Nelson for sharing this book with me.  It is great to see Granny M really get into a good book.
