A Vision of Lucy


Trouble follows Lucy wherever she goes; so does a vision of second chances...and love

Lucy Fairbanks dreams of working as a photographer at the Rock Creek newspaper. Her deepest hope is that her father will see her as an artiist, the way he though of her deceased mother, whose paintings still hang on their walls.

But disaster follows Lucy on every photo assignment: a mess of petticoats and ribbons, an accidental shooting, even a fire.

When Lucy meets David Wolf -- a rugged, reclusive man who lives on the outskirts of town -- she thinks she can catch the attention of the town with his photograph. She doesn't count on her feelings stirring whenever she's near him.

Two things happen next that forever change the course of Lucy's life. But will these events draw her closer ot God or push her further away? And how will David accept this new vision of Lucy?

My Review:

If you like Mary Connealy and Cathy Marie Hakes, you'll adore Margaret Brownley. This is her third in the Rocky Creek Romance series, and it's packed with comedy and action and a wallop of romance as well. It's the one-liners that kept me laughing -- even in the middle of the angst. And poor, klutzy Lucy, so determined to make a new name for herself  other than by taking on a husband! The slapstick comedy is priceless, but there's still an undercurrent of drama and some thought-provoking moral issues that bring an appealing balance to the story. And Brownley followers will be delighted to renew aquaintances with the townful of unique characters they met in A Lady Like Sarah and A Suitor for Jenny. An enjoyable read for anyone who likes their Westerns with a dash of comedy...or should that be their comedy with a dash of Western?
