Sometimes the path to freedom is found in an unexpected future.
Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters, the pieces scattering to the wind when she is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker. But when a telegram arrives announcing the man who captured her heart is on a train to Boston, Rosalind must hide her true feelings before the thin cord of her existence unravels the deadly secrets she keeps.
Cowboy Trent Easton returns to his roots in Boston society to find his childhood friend, the love of his heart. Instead he finds a broken woman engaged to a man close to her father’s age. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he determines to do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?
I hope you enjoy The Rescue. This story has always held my heart captive in the fact that it gives us a glimpse of how the Lord works behind-the-scenes in Rosalind and Trent's behalf, directing their paths. In many ways, our Lord does the same for us, even when we can't see Him move or act when we pray.
I'm reminded of scripture when Daniel prayed to the Lord, and He answered Daniel's prayer that same day, but evil hindered the answer from reaching him (Daniel 10). Even though The Rescue is a fictional story, it represents how we—as people of faith—may not see the Lord working on our behalf, but later receive blessings in the end result of His faithfulness and power to work in our circumstances.
Let us never forget that the Lord hears us when we pray. God's plans are to prosper us. Plans to give us a hope and a future.
Happy reading, friends!
