The reverend Rufus Dille has been hired to become the new pastor in Fairland, Kansas, He and Grace Cristler have been corresponding for the past several months as he has prepared to make the journey west. Their relationship has grown over the past few months and Grace can hardly wait, she and the whole rest of the town are sure there will be a quick marriage.
However, on the way to Fairland Rufus becomes ill, and happens to cross the path Theophil (Theo) Garrison who is running for his life from his family that is seeking revenge for having them incarcerated. Unfortunately, Rufus dies from his illness and in a series of coincidences and assumptions ends up taking the identity of the deceased pastor. Needless to say Theo’s way of preaching is no where near what the residence of Fairland had expected.
What transpires is a cute love story that has a strong message of grace, mercy and forgiveness. This book is an easy read and is different from other plots that you normal see with a Christian romance. The characters are well developed and you will like those you should and the few that should irritate you will.
This book was given to me by Blogging for Books for my honest opinion.
