Past promises will be tested as new ones are given...
When Clayton Proffitt, foreman of the Circle Z Ranch in
Texas, discovers Vanessa Grant crying in the barn late one
night, he first thinks sheâ€™s gotten herself into another
scrape. But when he spies the marks on her back and hears
about her stepfatherâ€™s advances, Clayton knows he must
spirit Vanessa away to safety.
As they make their way west, it becomes apparent that
thereâ€™s something special between Vanessa and Claytonâ€” far
more significant than mere friendship or his sense of duty.
Unfortunately, also heading west are Vanessaâ€™s brother Miles
and her stepfather Price Venture. Price wants Vanessa back
for obvious reasons; Miles wants to earn his stepfatherâ€™s
respect. Eventually, unexpected confrontations reach a
harrowing conclusion. As their family begins to heal, their
journey and trials they've faced helps them realize their
future is in God's guiding hands.

Re: A Texan's Promise
I enjoyed this inspirational story of Clayton Proffitt, formerly a Captain in the service in 1873 Texas, now foreman for the Grant family, following the fatherâ€™s death. The daughter, 19 year old Vanessa, is assaulted by her step-father, Price Venture, which initiates Clayton to strike across the country to find protection for Van with his sister Corinne, and her husband Merritt, living in Colorado. Traveling alone dictates that they marry to save Vanâ€™s reputation. The story of their journey is peppered with Indians and renegades to threaten their existence as well as the ever present fear of Price tracking them down. With aid from the Bible Vanessa matures and their life experiences only make them stronger in their belief and love for one another.
