{Sweepstakes} Christian Historical Romance Book by Penny Zeller

I LOVE to read.  I especially love to read books by "christian writers".  I recently had the opportunity to read a "historical romance" book by Penny Zeller.  What a great book!

About Penny:


I am a Christ follower, wife, mom, author and speaker.  I was bitten by the writing bug at age seven when I began writing Bible stories in my own words. In fourth grade, I started to write fictional stories and “publish” them in homemade wallpaper-covered cardboard books.

I also write a blog "A Day in the Life of a Wife, Mom, and Author" where I serve up a dose of humor relating to family and writing life, write movie reviews from a Christian perspective, and introduce you to some of my favorite author friends through author interviews and giveaways.

I am an active volunteer in my community. I serve as a Bible study leader, co-leader of a women’s prayer group, and founder of The Sisters in Christ Community Girls Night Out.

My passion is to use the gift of the written word to glorify God and to benefit His Kingdom. I devote my time to assisting, encouraging, and nurturing women and children into a closer relationship with Christ. When I'm not dreaming up new characters for books, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and camping, hiking, canoeing, gardening, and playing volleyball.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” ~ Jeremiah 29:11

My review:

I read the book "McKenzie", the first book in the Montana Skies Historical Romance Series.  I love reading ... especially anything by a christian writer, drama, and romance.  This book has all those things.  I really cannot wait to read the next book "Kaydie".

"Desperate times call for desperate measures" is the reasoning that prompts McKenzie Worthington, a young lady of Boston’s high society, to respond to an ad for a mail-order bride for a man in the Montana Territory. McKenzie is desperate, after all, to save her beloved younger sister, Kaydie, from her evil, abusive husband, who robs banks for a living. And so, it is with reckless determination that McKenzie runs away from the comforts of home and hearth to head West and meet her new husband—whom she’ll divorce, of course, after she rescues her sister.

"Desperate times call for desperate measures" is the reasoning that also prompts Zachary Sawyer, a rugged rancher after God’s own heart, to post an ad for a mail-order bride in various newspapers across the country. Managing a ranch and caring for his adoptive son, Davey, has become more than one man can handle alone, and Zach prays for God to send him a wife with whom to build a life and share his dreams.

When McKenzie arrives at Zach’s ranch, she immediately puts her plan in motion, searching for her sister and doing all she can to keep her new husband from forming an attachment. But his persistent kindness and significant self-sacrifices begin to change her heart—and ruin her plans. God has a way of working things out to the good of those who love Him, though, as McKenzie will soon see.

    1. Hello Amanda ~ Thank you for your enthusiasm in reading "Kaydie." I enjoyed writing it. One of my favorite scenes is where she and my other main character, Jonah, are fishing and something hilarious happens.

      Have a blessed week!

    1. Thank you, Sarah, for mentioning you would most like to read "Hailee." I am asked often about the inspiration behind that book. I actually received a piece of mail regarding an orphanage one day and I began to imagine the life of a girl in an orphanage during the 1800s...that inspiration soon became "Hailee."

      Have a wonderful week!

      Blessings,
