Cassidy by Lori Wick

Lori Wick is one of my favorite Christian fiction authors. In fact, the first Christian Fiction book I ever read was Wick's Sophie's Choice. I was thrilled when my library received a copy of her new book Cassidy. It is book one of her Big Sky Dreams series.

Set in the Montana Territory, Wick transports the writer back to 1880 to the small community of Token Creek. There we meet Cassidy Norton, Trace Holden and his wife, Meg, Brad Holden (Trace's brother) and a slew of other characters. Cassidy,a seamstress with a thriving business, is loved and respected by the citizens of Token Creek, but that may change when a visitor from her past arrives and secrets are revealed.

While the details of Cassidy's struggles aren't something I can relate to, I can understand the doubts and hurts she faces. I suspect most of you can too. No doubt this is a romantic look back in time, but it also provides food for thought as we ponder where we find our worth and our provision.

To tell you the truth, I've never read a book by Lori Wick, so I'll need to give her a try. I believe I have a Lori Wick book on my shelf.
