Inspirational Historical

Not five minutes in a one-horse Texas town, and Hank Larson foils a bank robbery. No matter that one of the bandits tripped right over Hank's dusty boots. Suddenly the newcomer is hailed a hero and anointed sheriff. Hank came to Glory to report crime in the newspaper--not stop it himself. But everyone thinks the Lord led him there to save the day. Everyone except the town's beautiful healer, Amelia Hawthorne. The robber who got away was her nineteen- year-old brother. And it's Hank's job to bring the guy in.

Hank knows all about losing family. And he slowly sets about restoring Amelia's shaky faith. But doing what's right might mean breaking her heart...and his own.

Re: The Accidental Lawman

Hi Jill. The Accidental Lawman sounds good. The cover is nice even though the hero is big. :)

I'm glad you're writing more inspirational books, historicals have always been a favorite of mine, novel or romance.
(

First a question - do your books come
in large print? We have a large group
of readers at our library who love this
type of story. Many however need
large print. Too often I end up with
the first book in a series in paperback
or regular print then find the later
books in large print. Then I'm in
trouble because they all want to read
the other books in the series.
Sounds like an enjoyable read with a
bit of a sense of humor - both high on
my list of books to get.
(
Patricia Barraclough 6:19pm May 25, 2009)

Hi Patricia,
Homecoming is in large print and I believe that The Accidental Lawman should be as well. Thanks for your question,
Jill Marie
