Genre: Christian Historical Romance

The man who destroyed her life may be the only one who can save it. 

Seven years ago, Maggie Logan (Eyes-Like-Sky) lost everything she knew when a raid on a wagon train tore her from her family. As the memories of her past faded to nothing more than vague shadows, Maggie adapted, marrying a Comanche warrior, having a baby, and rebuilding her life. But in one terrible battle, the U.S. Cavalry destroys that life and she is taken captive again, this time by those who call themselves her people. Forced into a world she wants nothing to do with, Eyes-Like-Sky’s only hope at protecting her child may be an engagement to the man who killed her husband. 

Enrolled in West Point to escape his overbearing father, Captain Garret Ramsey finds himself assigned to the Texas frontier, witnessing the brutal Indian War in which both sides commit atrocities. Plagued by guilt for his own role, Garret seeks redemption by taking responsibility for the woman he widowed and her baby. Though he is determined to do whatever it takes to protect them, is he willing to risk everything for a woman whose heart is buried in a grave?  

Christian Historical Romance is one of my favorite genres. Texas Forsaken by Sherry Shindelar is the latest in this genre that I have read. It is Book 1 in the Lone Star Redemption Series. 

The setting is 1860's in Texas. Maggie Logan (Eyes-Like-Sky) has rebuilt her life in the past Seven Years since she lost EVERYTHING when a Wagon Train Raid took her away from her family. Maggie has married a Comanche Warrior and had a baby (Little Star) and she is at a happy place in life. Life takes a turn when she is taken captive by the US Cavalry and her husband is killed. She feels her only way to protect her child is to marry the man who killed her husband. Captain Garret Ramsey has been assigned the Texas Frontier and has witnessed all the recent battles. He feels led to protect Maggie and her child. Will Maggie open her heart to allow Garret to take care of her and her child? Will there be a romance between Maggie and Garret? 

I truly enjoyed this book from the very beginning. The Historical times and events were very interesting and intriguing. My heart broke for Maggie Logan for going through loss not once, but twice. I LOVE that Garret wanted to protect Maggie and her daughter and gave his word to do so. Maggie is too filled with Gried and Anger at first, but watching her heart change and soften toward Garret was heartwarming. I LOVE that the characters have faith and belief in God. The book is one about Forgiveness, Life Changes, God's plan, and Second Chances. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Romance! FANTASTIC BOOK!
