Book Description

Contemporary Christian Western Romance

A grief-stricken single mom, her traumatized little boy, and the new lawyer in town who grows to love them both...

Trish James is tired of being rescued. When a spooked horse claims her husband's life, she’s determined to blaze a path for herself and her traumatized son without outside help. Unfortunately, her attempts at running her own business as an artist and wedding planner just doesn't pay the bills. But will that mean leaving her hometown of Miller's Creek--the place etched on her heart?

Andy Tyler has had to struggle for everything, and starting a new law practice in Miller's Creek, Texas is no different. Though prepared for business challenges, he's not prepared for falling in love--especially with yet another woman who will probably abandon him for her career.

Will Andy and Trish be able to fully trust in God and take a path less traveled?

Editorial Reviews


This is a story about faith and finding oneself and understanding the role God not only plays in our lives, but how he directs our paths. A thoughtful, engaging read and one I can recommend. -Holly

You know those books that you get really sucked into and so you stay up way too late reading them? Yep, this was one of those books! -Nicole R. Elliott

From the Author

A faith-walk is challenging to be sure, but also exhilarating and liberating. When we place our complete trust in the One who loves us perfectly--the One who knows us better than we know ourselves--each step becomes part of a marvelous adventure directed by the very hand of God.

Walking by faith,

3.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, engaging book December 1, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Like the first book in the Miller's Creek series, Texas Roads, I enjoyed this story. It's engaging and each time I set it down, I wanted to get back to it. I liked Trish, but found myself annoyed at times with her pride and stubborn, pathological refusal to accept help from anyone. Andy is a sweetheart and has a troubled past and I wished for more details about him. In fact, I wished for more details about everyone. Things are said or instances happen and then we're kind of left hanging at times, waiting for some closure, which isn't always important, but can be niggling.

This is a story about faith and finding oneself and understanding the role God not only plays in our lives, but how he directs our paths. A thoughtful, engaging read and one I can recommend.

A Path Less Traveled is a sequel to Texas Roads, and follows Steve's sister Trish. While the story stands alone, it is helpful to have read the first book, just for the background on the characters. I look forward to more from the Miller's Creek series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Read April 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Life is often so hard. This sweet story gives one continual reminders that God is in charge and that thru faith in his love for his chidren, he will see us through our struggles. i was deeply moved by both of Cathy's works. My one regret is that I have been unable to find her third book in this series "The Way of Grace".

This is a faith oriented book and is Christian faith in nature. The second in the Miller's Creek Series, it continues the story of Trish James, sister of Steve, who was one of the main protagonists in the Texas story. It is not necessary to have read the first in the series to enjoy this story, it stands well alone.

Trish James has been widowed at a very young age, along with her son she is still grieving the unexpected death of her husband from an accident. An accident which has left Trish feeling responsible for. As she struggles both financially and emotionally to begin a new life Trish is drawn to a new man in town. One who will force her to question her trust in her faith and her life choices.

Andy Tyler has come to Miller's Creek for a wedding and does not expect to run into a prickly widow who sets his heart on fire. Along with her young son, Trish is making Andy think he may find someone to spend his life with. But having been left by his last love for her career, Andy is wary of his own heart.

Nicely written and edited, clean and crisp this is a well developed story of love and faith. Understanding the heart of a widow Ms. Bryant delivers her protagonist with warmth and compassion. I recommend this one for all my faith based friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars A frustrating read November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was one of those where I knew exactly what was going to happen on page two. While this isn't always a problem when it's a romance (I don't like romances that have the wrong kind of surprises, like the couple not ending up together!) this one was a bit different. The attraction between the couples begins almost immediately, which means the resistance of one or other of the couple also begins immediately. This made it a frustrating read for me, as there was antagonism between the two leads from almost the first page, and it continued with a great deal of to-ing and fro-ing for almost every page of the novel.
I found Trish, the main protagonist, difficult to warm to from the start. I understand her defensive nature, considering what she had been through, but it still grated on me that she never seemed to learn anything at all until the very end of the novel, when suddenly she wondered why she hadn't worked it out earlier. Me too.
I guess that can be the frustrating thing about some romance novels. The author needs to have attraction initially, but conflict to keep them apart until the end, but I felt the conflict was overdone, especially in regards to Trish's bull-headed nature.
Not only that, but some things about the end frustrated me. There's a tornado, but no member of her family thinks to check on how Trish fared when they know she never asks for help? She says she's definitely going to move, then her son runs away and she doesn't talk to him about why he ran away - which I think was quite clearly because of the move, even from her point of view - and the next thing the poor kid knows is he's in the car and moving with her, without being allowed to say goodbye to any of his family?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Path Less Traveled November 29, 2010
All I can say is wow! Cathy Bryant is a new to me author, and I feel honored to have been able to read her amazing book!
In the opening of the book we get a glimpse of the chaos that is going on in Trish James life. Widowed less than a year ago when a horse kicked her husband, she has taken on the responsibility of being a single mother, running a new business. While most people think that she should have plenty of money, that isn't the case, she is struggling financially, because of a simple oversight she made while her husband lay in a coma. Worse than the financial struggle is the fact that she isn't listening to what God has planned for her, determined to take care of everything on her own, she tries to hide her problems from her family, but with her young unable to cope, will she finally allow God's plan to fall in place, allowing the person he has placed in her life to help her?
Andy Tyler a young lawyer who moves to Miller's Creek has a past that he doesn't readily share, growing up in a family where his father was an alcoholic, he sort of became the caretaker for his younger brother. He is drawn to Trish and her young son, wanting to help her and make her life a little easier, if only she will let him.
This story captured my heart from the first pages. The story of Trish and Little Bo came to life, and Andy's kind nature shined thru. A story that I couldn't put down, of grief, loss, love and new beginnings. A story that will make your heart feel good.

Even though this is the second book in the Miller's Creek Novels it can easily be read as a stand alone book, I didn't read the first book and had no problems jumping into this story.
