If ever there was a stubborn character, Glory Ann Day would
have to be the most perfect example. She is in parts
and other parts loving, especially to her family. Glory is, in
short, a very hard working young woman with the weight of
the world on her shoulders and little time to mind her
Which is definitely the case in all her interactions with Luke
McClain, a stranger in town who seems determined to
interfere, (Glory's words not mine) in the Day family's
The Day family has fallen on hard times made all the
worse by the jailing of their father. Mother Day has fallen
into some mental abyss with lucid moments a
rarity. The three sisters Glory, Hope, and Patience are just
about managing although it seems in and of itself a sort
Luke is just what this family truly needs, but Glory worries
about the cost. Clearly, Luke is carrying around guilt and
worry of his own. Glory is concerned that he might be
involved in some of the problems occurring in her small
town. Robberies and hangings seem to have heightened since
Luke arrived. Yet, all that seems contrary to the man.
The Day family faces each new dilemma with love and
strength and hope. THE COWBOY WHO CAME CALLING is a story
that delves deeply into the value of those virtues. Glory
needs to learn some of these lessons and, perhaps, Luke is
just the guy to teach her. At the same time, life could take
a decidedly better turn for both Glory and Luke. Dare we

the first page to the last. So, if you missed this series
the first time around, this is your chance to read some of
Linda Broday's best.

Oh Wow! Thanks for such a great review, Sandra. I'm
thrilled that you liked Luke and Glory. The story was
deeply personal to me and I wrote it during a scary time
in my life when I lost my vision for a while. Thankfully,
doctors were able to restore mine. Maybe they could've

was able to transfer all my fears and insecurities to
Only these first two of the series are reissues. Book #3 -
To Catch a Texas Star - is the story I always wanted to
write but didn't get a chance until Sourcebooks made me a
deal. I'm so happy to have it out. It features Marley Rose
(the baby in Knight on the Texas Plains) as a young woman
and she learns the secret her father has kept all these
years. I think it's a very powerful story.
Thanks again for the touching review.

If you missed any of Linda Broday's books, you are really not reading the best historical books written. Linda has a way of getting all her heroes to step into your heart. This review of The Cowboy Who Came Calling, shows you the awesome writer she is. You must add it to your TBR list.
