A Review: The Lady Fugitive by Ada Brownell
The Book, The Lady Fugitive:
How does a respected elocutionist become a face on a wanted poster? Jenny Louise Parks escapes from the coal bin and her abusive uncle offers a handsome reward for her return. Because he is a judge, he will find her. Determination to remain free grips Jenny, especially after she meets William and there's a hint of romance. But while peddling household goods and showing a Passion of the Christ moving picture, he discovers his father's brutal murder. Will Jenny avoid the bounty hunters? Can she forgive the person who turns her in? Will she find peace, joy and love?
* * * * The Review, The Lady Fugitive:
A nice historical Christian romance, The Lady Fugitive keeps you turning the pages. A slice from the past in more ways than one, this book reminds me of the older novels of Christian fiction. With God’s word and wisdom interlaced through its pages, Brownell takes the reader on a ride and shows the way to salvation…again and again.
Jenny Louise Parks, a.k.a. J.L., embarks on her own across the wilds of Colorado to escape her lecherous uncle, a powerful judge, only to discover the hard way that there’s no place to hide. William O’Casey, a new Christian, peddles his goods through the mountains and valleys of the Colorado Rockies as he searches for his wayward brother. He finds her, protects her, and keeps her secret while chasing his brother down the rocky road...toward salvation.
Although this book can be confusing at times, it’s a good, old-fashioned western romance, and I recommend it to anyone who loves to read about the Lord and the old west. I give this book four stars.
