Melody Carlson has been a favorite author of mine for many years. 
Delia and the Drifter is a Christian Western Historical Fiction. 

Delia Blackstone is a young lady of marrying age. Her mother 
has someone in mind for Delia to marry, but Delia is not wanting
to be a part of marrying a much older man. Delia decides to travel
West when she finds out a secret about her past and needs to 
figure out who she really is. She heads from Pennsylvania to Colorado,
and along the way meets Wyatt. Wyatt is someone who goes from 
one place to another, a drifter. Delia is at first hesitant to get to know
Wyatt, but as she does she finds herself drawn to him. Delia travels to 
a ranch with Wyatt, and while at the Ranch there is a murder which leads 
to mystery. Will Wyatt and Delia have a future together? Will the murder 
mystery be solved? 

WOW, this book really has a lot of action and is a total page turner! 
I really like that Delia decides to venture out and find out about her 
past and hopefully take her away from the arranged marriage she 
doesn't want to be a part of . The relationship formed between Delia
and Wyatt is really heartwarming. Melody Carlson is a GREAT author
and the book flows really well. GREAT storyline and book! 

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women, and children. That’s a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a “storyteller.” Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, True Colors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She’s won a number of awards (including RT’s Career Achievement Award, the Rita, and the Gold medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog.



More from Melody

I love historical stories about women. Particularly ones in the American frontier and old west. Probably because I grew up hearing pioneer stories from my grandparents, whose parents arrived in covered wagons. But contributions made by pioneering females is often overshadowed by their male counterparts. That’s why I enjoy researching and telling these fictional yet reality-based stories of women who lived and loved and did their part to settle the frontier. To me they are the unsung heroes of the West.
