Journey of Faith: Familiar Strangers

Rebecca O'Brian's uncle has just passed away. His will leave her the house and surrounding lands but only if she fulfills one condition. She is to marry George Pickett. She's not sure what she's going to do but knows that she cannot marry such an ungodly man as George. While having lunch with a friend and their visitor Matt, she finds his brother is in need of a wife on a ranch in Colorado. Feeling like God is leading her and seeing this as her way of escape she decides to make the trip. Joshua Holt is fine being bachelor...until he sets his eyes on Rebecca. Will they make it to the alter? And what will George Pickett do when he finds out she's married another?

I enjoyed this easy-to-read story. I think Journey of Faith is a good title for it. That's really what it was. Rebecca and Josh both had to learn to trust God with the circumstances they found themselves in. There were lots of spiritual nuggets to this story that were inspiring to me. I did feel however that the story moved a little too quickly and in some instances seemed a little unrealistic. Overall it was an enjoyable story and I think it's worth reading.
