Christian fiction that is intriguing and adventurous.
on October 1, 2012
Chasing the Texas Wind is adventurous tale following the lives of Hamilton and Maeve. Thrown into a marriage of convenience, they somehow find love as they embark on an adventure to save their beloved Texas from the hostile takeover of the oppressive Mexican government. This story has many twists and turns throughout the plot and keeps the reader on their toes and they struggle, along with the characters, to solve the mystery of this intriguing tale.
Although I loved the middle and the ending of this book, I do have to agree with another review that the beginning of this tale (basically the first chapter) is a bit confusing as you try to figure out what is going on. The confusion may have been caused by the lengthy descriptions of the characters and some other discrepancies that probably needed to be addressed to further understand the original character, Hamilton. Despite this jumbling at the beginning. You start to see the characters emerge into people that you love and want to get to know more as friends. You feel sorry for Hamilton and wonder what life Maeve is leading in secret. You also start to see the historical aspects and can only imagine what living in a time of such unrest would have been like. You also long to solve the mystery that encircles the plot and save the characters from any peril that they might face throughout this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who have a love for historical Christian fiction novels and is looking for a little bit of mystery to intrigue them. I am excited to read some more of Mrs. Findley's books in the future.
