Book Review, “Blue Moon Promise,” Colleen Coble author

Blue Moon Promise, by Colleen Coble, is a charming story.  It is the first book in the Under Texas Stars series, and it definitely leaves the reader anticipating the next book.

The book begins with Lucy Marsh, living in the city in Indiana, trying to care for her two siblings, a difficult job after losing her job and receiving an eviction notice. As a last resort, she accepts an offer to marry Nate Stanton sight unseen by proxy and moves to Texas.  Nate, however, is shocked that his father returns from a trip to the city with a wife for him, as well as a ready-made family.  Nate and Lucy struggle with the situation, neither of them knowing quite what to do next.

I enjoyed reading this book.  The characters draw one’s attention from the very beginning.  I found myself sympathizing with Lucy and her troubles, wondering if I could handle such a situation.  The lessons Lucy learns about God’s mercy, that people cannot earn His love, certainly apply to reader’s today.  Nate’s struggle with accepting the circumstances that God allows and his dealing with a difficult father are also situations that many can relate to.

I would recommend this book to all who enjoy Christian historical fiction.
