A Three Strand Chord
Tomorrow’s First Light by Naomi Rawlings is a delightful Christian historical romance set in 1885. It is the first book in the Texas Promise series and what a warm and wonderful series that promises to be.
A main theme is taking care of widows and orphans. Hearts and homes are opened to a family of nine siblings as a rancher gets more than he bargains for with his mail order bride.
God is with us in the good and the bad times. He is with us even when we cannot see or feel Him. God walks alongside us at all times in life.
It is life not God that deals us blows. “Was she doing something wrong? Was that why God never answered her prayers?”God is faithful. He always answers our prayers in His time and in His way.
We are not responsible for the sins of our parents. The circumstances surrounding our births do not mean we are cursed. Life can be hard but God is faithful “Did God love her in spite of all the bad things that had happened to her?” We must hang on to God and on to hope at all times that all things will work out for the best.
Naomi Rawlings has created a wonderful new set of characters. The children are a handful of unique personalities that endear themselves to the reader. There is a core friendship group that support each other. As new relationships begin, the reader’s heart is warmed.
There is a rescue in the book that mirrors God’s rescue of each and every one of us. When we are stuck in our sin, God comes close, draws us near and pulls us out of our sin and into a relationship with Him.
I adored Tomorrow’s First Light. I adore all Naomi Rawlings novels. They are warm and wonderful, grounded in God and always leave me smiling.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
