Peace in the Valley

In Ruth Logan Herne's final entry, Peace in the Valley, to her Double S Ranch series, you will watch Trey Walker Stafford, returning to his hometown in central Washington, with the plan to donate some of his liver to his dying father, Sam Stafford.  When Trey runs the van of single mother, Lucy Carlton, off the road, totaling her van and destroying the products she was taking to sell at a local fair, his plans suddenly change!

In the past, Sam Stafford has wronged Lucy; so he sees this as a great opportunity to encourage his youngest son, Trey, to not only replace Lucy's van, but to lend a hand to make improvements on her farm.  Trey had left the ranch years ago to  pursue a musical career.  After Trey has become a successful country star in Nashville, he is ready to slow down and enjoy time with his family.  As Trey spends more and more time with Lucy and her family, you will slowly see flames beginning to grow between Lucy and Trey.  When Trey learns that Lucy has had trouble with a past drug addiction, his feelings suddenly grind to a stop.  He lost his first wife to a drug overdose and promised himself to never go down that road again!

You have two questions as you near the final pages of this book:  will Sam and Trey survive the liver transplant and will Lucy and Trey find a new life together?  You know that God will need to be present for both situations to come about!

I received this book from Multnomah in exchange for my unbiased review.
