Although I live on a rural island with cows pastured across the road, I must admit I will always think of myself as a city gal. So when I got a copy of Lori Wilde’s A Cowboy for Christmas as an Avon Addict, I didn’t delve into it right away.
It turned out to be a sweet yet realistic story.
The heroine must deal with the news that her child has a disability. As she grapples with the conflicting opinions, mostly unsolicited, about what is the best course of action for her son, she must learn to think for herself. This means she has to stand up to her mother-in-law, a woman with her own secrets to resolve. The lead character and the mother-in-law come to satisfactory outcomes with their issues and with each other.
And the cowboy hero is all you could wish for in a Christmas present.
