Worth Fighting For
The Rancher’s Surprise Daughter by Jill Lynn is a sweet contemporary Christian family romance. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face with its wonderful, warm characters and delightful storyline.
At its heart are the themes of trust, faith and fear. The past has a bearing on the present. We fear the sins of the parents visiting the next generation and this will always hold us back. “She’d clung to bitterness and fear, letting them dictate her choices.” The sins of the parents are not destined to be on repeat. With God’s help, we can break the pattern. God did not give us a spirit of fear. He wants us to trust Him with our one and only life. If we have faith we do not need to fear. We need to trust, put our lives in God’s hands, and step into the future with faith.
God is the God of new beginnings and second chances. He covers each one of us with His grace. “We’re all messes redeemed by God’s grace.” Our past is not who we are. We are all a new creation in Jesus.
Children are a gift from God no matter how or when they were conceived. There is a beautiful three year old in the story whose presence will just melt your heart. I loved her turn of speech and mannerisms.
I loved the inclusion of a pet cat. It was good to see that I am not the only one who talks to their cats.
There is power in prayer. We can trust that God is in control and will take care of our most precious children but it never hurts to cover them in prayer.
The Rancher’s Surprise Daughter was a charming read just perfect for any afternoon. I loved it.
