Brides of the Old West

by Amanda Cabot

Brides of the Old West

Four unlikely couples. Four unexpected chances at happiness. Four unforgettable stories of love and faith in the Old West.

The Christmas Star Bride – Can a bakery owner who lost her one true love at Gettysburg twenty years ago and an itinerant artist who lost more than love during the war find a second chance at happiness, or is love only for the young?

The Fourth of July Bride – She needs money to pay for her mother’s desperately needed eye surgery. He needs a way to stop his meddling mother from choosing his bride. Can the answer be a temporary courtship?

The Depot Bride – Can a cattle baron’s daughter who’s practically betrothed to another man and a struggling writer who fears he has nothing to offer her find happiness as they create a commemorative book to celebrate the creation of the new Union Pacific depot in Cheyenne?

The Unmatched Bride – When a confirmed spinster matchmaker accepts an unusual assignment and helps a wealthy widower choose the right mate for his daughter, can more than one couple have a chance at true love?



Reading is AMAZING!

Between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2

by Ray James

Between Genesis

For at least two hundred years there has been a debate over whether there is a gap between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2, no gap or a modified gap. Included in this book is a fascinating story of what scientific evidence has to say about the past several billion years, and what the Bible has to say about the period of time from the creation of Adam and Eve and the birth of Jesus Christ. Prepare to be amazed.






Half-Price Bride

by Laurean Brooks

Half-Price Bride

To escape a contentious relationship, Emily Hammons answers a mail-order bride ad from a dentist in Abilene. Arriving a day late, she is shocked to find him exchanging vows with another woman.

Handsome rancher, Clint McCall came to town to fetch the doctor, but Doc is attending a wedding. As he waits outside the church, the bride tears out, slamming a pretty brunette into him. Clint tries to steady her, but loses his balance, becoming a cushion for her fall.

With an injured foot and an empty purse, Emily accepts Clint’s offer to care for his ailing mother.

Clint has arguments to back his opinion of mail-order brides. His mother suffered years of abuse at the hand of an angry man when she answered an ad.

With no relatives in Abilene, why did Emily travel more than 600 miles from Memphis? Clint feels she is hiding something.

The dentist in on the hunt for his “other” bride. Will he find Emily? Will Clint’s love be strong enough to endure Emily’s secret, or will it destroy them?

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. – Isaiah 40:8 ESV


What is the nature of the Bible and how should we relate to it? Should we take its words seriously? Can we rely on them? Or are they just interesting artifacts from ancient times that say something about those times, but say nothing to us?

We live in a world of change. Nothing stays the same. The only constant seems to be that there is nothing constant. Things come and things go. Isaiah spoke, but Isaiah was a mere man. Men say all sorts of things. Why take Isaiah’s word more seriously than any other man’s?

Indeed, Isaiah seems to have undermined his own message. He likened people to grass and said, “All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it” (Isaiah 40:6-7). Does this not apply to Isaiah himself? Are not his words the mere words of a withering blade of grass? People come and people go, and their words come to naught. Why should anything be different in his case?
