Stealing the Preacher : A Review
Crockett Archer is on a train on his way to preach at a church and hopefully become their pastor when he is kidnapped. Most train robbers steal possessions but this group of aging outlaws is looking for a preacher.
This character is such a contradiction to the stereotypical preacher; he can work a ranch, shoot with the best and touch the heart of God's people in the pulpit. We met Crockett in the Short-Straw Bride book. I hope that this author lets us meet the remaining boys of this family in future books.
Joanna Robbins loves her father more than anything. Her mother's dying wish was that her daughter see Silas Robbins surrender his life to God. When Silas asks what Joanna wants for her birthday she flippantly says a preacher. She is longing for someone to join the battle to lead her outlaw father to the Savior. The small community that Joanna lives in lost their pastor to a bigger town and the church sits empty.Who knew that stealing the preacher would touch so many lives...
I won't tell anymore of the plot. I would hate to ruin it for you. Just know that if you need a fun read set in the wild west look no further.
I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
