Christian author Miralee Ferrell takes readers back in time to unique places across the U.S. in her novels from the Love Finds You series (Summerside Press). Each novel tells the story of a hero and heroine from the 1800s and how they find love together and grow in their faith in God. Love Finds You in Sundance, WY is Miralee’s fourth book in the series.
Love Finds You in Sundance, WY
After three years of living a man’s life, hiding from the outlaw who wants to make her his wife, Angel Ramirez is ready to be herself again. When she arrives at Travis Morgan’s ranch to hunt varmints for him, she thinks she’s put enough time and distance between herself and Bart Hinson to reveal her real identify. However, as Travis’ cowhands fall over themselves trying to impress her and as Travis says she can only work until he can find a man to do her job, she begins to question her decision.
Travis’ sister Libby, recently widowed, now lives on his ranch with her young son. She wants more help around the house and can’t believe that Travis has hired a woman to hunt wolves. As she gets to know Angel, however, she comes to see the young woman as a potential friend. When Angel is wounded by a cougar, Libby is given the chance to get to know the young woman. Then a woman shows up at the ranch claiming to be Angel’s grandmother, and Angel must face the past she’s tried to leave behind.
Travis has worked hard to build his ranch, yet still can’t seem to earn his father’s approval. He fights his confusing feelings for Angel until finally admitting that he loves her and wants her to be his wife. However, Bart Hinson’s arrival at the ranch threatens not only Angel’s future but also Travis’, Libby’s, and the ranch’s.
A Series of Historical Romances
The Love Finds You series take place in historical towns across the US with unique or romantic names. Miralee has written four of the novels: Love Finds You in Last Chance, CA (2008), Love Finds You in Bridal Veil Falls, OR (2010); Love Finds You in Tombstone, AZ (2011); and Love Finds You in Sundance, WY (2011). Some of the towns are now ghost towns; others still exist. Miralee’s in-depth historical research is obvious in each of her novels as details about the places (and some historical characters) bring each town to life. Other authors have written other novels in the series, covering nearly every state in the US.
About Author Miralee Ferrell
Miralee Ferrell has also written two contemporary novels (The Other Daughter, 2007, and Finding Jeena, 2009) but feels that she may “let go of that genre and stick with historical” (interview with Bonnie Way, August 25, 2010). She began writing in 2004, when she felt God speaking to her at a special church service. She wrote several short stories and articles (some are now available on her website) before starting The Other Daughter, which she wrote in five weeks. She is a pastor’s wife with two children who loves gardening, riding horses, and sailing with her husband.
