    More Than Empowering

    In the tradition of Francine Rivers & Liz Curtis Higgs, The Rancher's Temporary Engagement carries us back through time in love and the lives of women of faith. Stacy Henrie has truly done her homework on this fascinating time in America, when British aristocrats turn to Wyoming ranchers and battered women rise into the ranks of the Pinkertons. As the stage is set, we are gifted with a glimpse into a world that promises danger and beauty in equal turns. Both protagonists, Edward Kent and our not-so-damsel in distress, Maddy are brought together by nefarious circumstances. Kent, the outcast son of a British Earl, has found success with his beloved ranch, until someone begins stealing his horses. He enlists the aid of the Pinkertons on a whim. Enter Maddy, whose background, deep in abuse, rings true. This inner vulnerability is something she has worked hard to bury beneath a veneer of wit and cunning. While she's known as "get her man" Maddy, our heroine isn't as tough as she presents herself on the surface upon meeting Edward. Maddy's boss sends her to solve this one last case, with the promise of the promotion of a lifetime. All Edward Kent cares about is nabbing the horse rustlers and proving once and for all that his mad move to the States merits worth. The last thing either expect is to find their well made plans work best when working together. I was surprised by the depth and sincerity of Henrie's writing. In such a light genre, many inspirational authors shy away from the grittier aspects of the time period. Henrie handles both the bad and ugly with honesty and a deeper message of hope. As Maddy slowly watches the way Edward weaves his faith through his daily life, Henrie also urges us to "see His hand in everything." The impact of Edward's faith in God and in Maddy, as she unravels the mystery is more than empowering, it's a reminder of the true meaning of redeeming love.
