A SOJOURNER'S CHRISTMAS by Linda Brooks Davis, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

(A Valley of Promise Novella)
I have not read the first book in this series but I do know that Blossom Evans and her extended family of twelve have left Oklahoma in 1923 to travel to Texas. Their covered wagons draw up on Winter, Texas on Christmas Eve. The events that happen on this night and the next day show 22 year old Blossom’s spirit and spunk. The McFarland family pulls together and helps the underdog. They are living out their Christian Faith and stand on the side of right.

I am looking forward to the next step in the journey of young Blossom and her family.

*I received a complimentary ecopy from the author. I was not required to give a favorable review. All opinions are my own.*4 stars and a strong faith thread. 
BackCover Blurb:
She relinquished her childhood home. Abandoned her former life. And set off for a faraway valley that’s touted as magical. As an aspiring newspaper reporter, Blossom Evans expects to find plenty of material with which to carve out a career. But alarming tales about the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas abound. Barely tamed, rugged brush land. Mexican bandits. Wildcats, rattlesnakes, and tarantulas as big around as dinner plates. 
Where will she find the courage to face—and overcome—such foes, even for her dream career?The first hint of an answer lies in the sleepy little West Texas town of Winters. An unexpected conflict is brewing, one that could launch a reporter's career—or crush it before it begins. How will Blossom be lured into the fray? And where will she find the temerity to confront this particular brand of evil? It's Christmas Eve 1923, and Blossom Evans is about to discover what's she made of.
