Review- A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley

The last Inspy nominee, A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley, was one of the panel's favorites. This novel is about a tough outlaw with a heart of gold. Sarah Prescott may not know much about the Bible, or much about polite society, but she knows what she wants and she fights for it.

A Lady Like Sarah is a high action story combined with a sweet romance. It was a quick, fun read with a strong faith element and it reminded me a little of another one of my favorite authors, Mary Connealy. I will definitely seek out other Margaret Brownley books.

What more info? Here's the back cover blurb:
Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life. Just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot first and ask questions later.

Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying U.S. Marshal at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.

His high society expectations and Sarah's outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and towing an orphaned baby rescued from the brink of starvation, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There, justice will be meted out. Perhaps- they hope- with a healthy portion of grace.

Filled with mishaps, laughs, and adventure, Margaret Brownley's inspiring romance will keep readers cheering for Sarah as she struggles to become a true lady.
My rating:
