Book Review: Secondhand Cowboy by Lacy Williams
Secondhand Cowboy is written by Lacy Williams and is published by Redbud Press. It is a light romance with deeper character studies than the superficial ones of some mainstream books. In this latest volume by bestselling author Lacy Williams, Cal, the cowboy, returns after a five year absence. His fiancee, Iris, was devastated when her beloved cowboy left town without a word. She doesn't want to have anything to do with him - and the surprise he brings with him - or does she? Things get complicated when Cal is injured. To top it off, Iris's father brings some "secrets" to light, secrets that are difficult to see past.
This is a sweet story of forgiveness and love. Faith is surely an element in the story, but it is not overly emphasized into a preachy tome. By the end of the story, the reader is feeling all sorts of emotions but ultimately, feeling good.
I enjoyed reading Secondhand Cowboy and am not interested in looking up Lacy Williams's other books.
