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 she’s gotten herself into another scrape. But when he spies the marks on her back and hears about her stepfather’s advances, Clayton knows he must spirit Vanessa away to safety. As they make their way west, it becomes apparent that there’s something special between Vanessa and Clayton— far more significant than mere friendship or his sense of duty. Unfortunately, also heading west are Vanessa’s brother Miles and her stepfather Price Venture. Price wants Vanessa back for obvious reasons; Miles wants to earn his stepfather’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 father’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 Van’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.
