Book Description

Argosy Jct. Montana~
Pop. 13,223

Lane~ Five years after her family broke ties with The
Brethren, the cult-like church still has firm ties wrapped around her heart and soul. The more she rejects them, the Lord, and anyone who claims a relationship with Christ, the more she
realizes how empty life can be.

Matt~ Fresh from the inner city, Matt arrives in Argosy Jct. ready to explore the Montana countryside. He’s prepared for anything but sheep, cults, and a rancher’s daughter with a chip on her shoulder.

Not until she saves Matt from assault by sheep does Lane begin to understand that Christianity is a relationship rather than a checklist to godliness. Before he met Lane, Matt never understood how damaging the body of Christ can be to its own.

Join them as they explore Montana, Rockland, and the possibility of a merge between two very
different worlds.

Argosy Junction is the second book in the Rockland Chronicles

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! When can I read more? October 19, 2009
I absolutely love this book! I enjoyed reading it because it makes you want to laugh one minute and cry the next, and was happy to know that I didn't have to worry about any bad language or inappropriate behaviors. I think Mrs. Havig has a nice twist from today's society in this book in that Matt tries to win Lanes heart without "dating" her. I look forward to Mrs. Havig's next publishing. This really is a must read! I love this book and so will you! What are you waiting for? Get reading -you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! October 30, 2009
By Michele
I think in my next life, I'd like to be a character in a book. Not just any book though, I want to be a character in a Chautona Havig novel. I can honestly say that I will read, and typically enjoy (at least a little), just about anything. My one peeve has always been romance novels. It's not anything personal, just not my taste. There's something about all that sap...ick. Anyhoo, Mrs. Havig changed all that. I can't really tell you what is different, this is definitely romance, but it's not the mindless enamored junk that you normally find. This author is incredible about pulling you into the story. You aren't just escaping into a world within the pages of a book, but you are there at Argosy. You can smell the sheep, slice through the tension between the families and still wrap yourself in the feeling of the community. Thank you for another excellent story, Mrs. Havig!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Because of the bad experience her family's had with religion, Lane is bitter and wants nothing to do with it. She falls in love with Matt, whose faith and a caring English teacher helped pull him up from the wrong side of the tracks in the inner city where he lives. Lane lives near a small town on a sheep ranch and has never known the kind of life Matt has lived. Their differences are many, but their opposite views on Christ and Christianity drives the irrevocable wedge between them. Matt, however, refuses to give up, although he has many moments of dispair.

This is a very unusual novel. It is filled more with thoughts and feelings than action, yet, it held me spellbound. It slowed only at one place, when Matt went back to the city, and he and Lane are emailing back and forth, but neither would express how they really felt about the other. After that, I couldn't put the book down and read into the early morning hours to finish it. Hats off to Chautona Havig!

4.0 out of 5 stars Argosy Junction September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very Interesting book on many levels. The love story between Matt & Lane and the love Matt has for God. The conflict between the Argosy family and the Brethren is so compelling that I found myself getting angry at the way these people could be so easily manipulated by the leader.

I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! December 26, 2009
Wonderful story (second book in the Rockland Chronicles) of the classic story about opposites attracting. Big city boy meets mountain raised gal. Ah, but in Argosy Junction, things are not 'typical'. The story is captivating right from the time Matt is stuck in the sheep field to Lane's visit to his home in the big bad city. Well written and not the usual formula type storyline. Even though this is part of a series, this book stands alone. Chautona's vivid descriptions of the Montana sky as well as the gritty sity streets makes a clear picture in the mind's eye. You feel as though you are there, and you grow very quickly attatched to the characters. Excellent book! Buy one for yourself and one for your local library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! March 25, 2010
I love Chautona's books: they are realistic without being depressingly gritty. This story was fascinating--I couldn't put it down until I had finished the last page. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Read June 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked this story a lot and I think it gives insight into how harmful cults are, even those who think they are starting out with the right message and meaning. Learned a lot.
Enjoyed the romance but Lane was extremely hard headed and unbending. Of course, that is what makes a great story when it turns around at the end.
After all this couple went through to be together Matt insists that he and Lane live with his parents (for years) after they are married. His parents need his financial assistance and he needs to save more to place a larger down payment on a home. It is my understanding that both parents work and they certainly don't live in luxury and he gives them a thousand dollars a month (but they told him they only needed $500) and will continue to do so after their marriage.
I'm not sure, after all they went through, if Lane should marry him now. His priorities seem flawed to me. I don't feel he should expect her to move in with his parents and you can tell she doesn't want to. What about the leave and cleave the Bible speaks of? Living with one's family is no way to start a marriage. Matt measures their relationship by the Word except for this one point. I also understand that there are quite a few differing opinions on what "leave and cleave" means. Been there and done that. It ended up destroying us.

I love the way Lane's family comes together and faces the past, seeks forgiveness, and looks to the future as well. It truly was a great story except the part that troubled me concerning them living with his parents.

Maybe I am looking at this selfishly.

More About the Author

When asked about writing, author Chautona Havig says, "Books. I love them- always have. From my earliest years, I spent most of my free time lost in a book, until one day I realized that I had stories in my heart and mind that I wanted to tell. Time passed, life, family, and work got in the way, and my dream of being a writer seemed to vanish into the desert winds.

Dreams are beautiful things, though; they never quite disappear. I began writing again, editing, writing, editing...more editing... and now I have over a hundred books in progress and a few dozen published. I write the stories of fictional people who have real problems, weaknesses, and triumphs. Through their stories, I try to share the Hope that is within me."

Chautona lives in a small, remote town in California's Mojave Desert with her husband and seven of her nine children. When not writing, she enjoys paper crafting, sewing, and the knowledge that someday she'll be able to retire from home education.
