She Shall Be Praised was an entertaining novel. I have read several series of books by Ginny Aiken and knew what to expect. As always, her characters were witty—though they seemed to have differing opinions most of the time which kept the dialogue lively and interesting. Emma was a strong, likeable character. I could see how she changed throughout the story. Peter, though a stern and no-nonsense type of man, did have soft-side, though he rarely did show it.

Robby—Peter’s son—was one of my favorite characters. Rarely does an author in this genre focus on developing a child’s character. But this author did a marvelous job of defining the relationship between Peter and his son. Peter wanted Robby to be more like him. However, all Robby wanted to do was read about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It was interesting that Ginny chose to make Peter so stern. I rarely see that characteristic in fictional male characters in today’s Christian fiction.

The worst fault I can find with She Shall Be Praised was its predictability. Except for a stunning surprise in the beginning(which I was totally unprepared for. Read it yourself to find out what it is;) the rest of the novel was entirely too expected. Even when a crime was unexpectedly committed, I realized almost immediately exactly who had committed it. The one thing that I was disappointed in was that the author did not use much of her extensive vocabulary as she usually does. Almost always when I read one of her books, I need my dictionary handy in order to look up some long, interesting word. I’ve always enjoyed reading her works simply because of the anticipation of growing my vocabulary. She Shall Be Praised did not have one word I did not know.

She Shall Be Praised
Ginny Aiken
FaithWords, Jan 7 2014, $15.00
ISBN: 9780892968466

In 1883, following a trip to London, upper crust Emma Crowell stops at the home of her aunt and uncle in Hope County, Oregon. Heeding her father's plea, Emma accepts Joshua Hamilton's proposal. About to leave on a business trip to Paris, Joshua gives his fiancée a poodle.

On the coach to Portland without a chaperone, Emma demands the driver stop because her dog Pippa needs a break. Once the socialite and the canine leave the coach; the driver leaves them behind in the wild. Two outlaws capture the deb and the dog until rancher Peter Lowery and his manager Colley, searching for sheep rustlers, rescue them. He takes the females to his home, but explains he cannot escort her to Portland due to his ranch obligations for a few months. Instead Peter offers her a place to stay if Emma becomes the housekeeper and his son Robby's caretaker. As Emma adapts to working guided by the Proverbs, she falls in love with her host and his child. Although she believes Peter reciprocates Emma must persuade him to let her stay with them instead of taking her to Portland.

The third Women of Hope Americana romance (see Remember Me When and For Such A Time As This) is a wonderful 1880s Oregonian inspirational. The key cast comes across fully developed; especially Emma who starts off as a debutante out of place in a rustic lifestyle after years in ballrooms (though I doubt she can change her spots, Ginny Aiken makes a compelling case). Ironically, Colley and Pippa bring freshness to She Shall Be Praised while the protagonists need to overcome their respective first impressions of each other.

Format: Paperback
All Emma Cromwell hoped for when she set out on her journey to Portland, Oregon was to learn to rely on herself and not the men in her life. After spending time in the social circles in Denver and finding little in the way of friendships with women and nothing but the attention of suitable gentlemen, Emma wanted to see if she could handle life without someone making all the decisions for her. So when her father agreed to send her by coach along with the pastor and his wife, he felt he had done the right thing. After all he finally got Emma to agree to marry Joshua Hamilton, a suitable match in both business and for making sure he could provide for his daughter. Now she only has to get from Denver to Oregon in one piece.

But like all great novels, there is a twist of fate when Emma has to stop the coach to allow the dog she was gifted from Mr. Hamilton as an engagement present to do her constitutionals. Little did she imagine that the coach would be held up and the driver leave her behind in an effort to avoid being robbed. Now she is left in the care of two bumbling thieves who know they can't abandon her in the middle of the forest. One of the men, Ned, wants to be the true gentleman while Sawyer sees her like an object of desire and one that she can't trust. When she is taken back to their camp, she learns that they are more than just thieves, they have also stolen sheep from the local rancher and they are hoping to stay long enough to make some money off them.

Peter Lowery knows that the size of his sheep herd is dwindling and believes that someone is stealing from him. Instead of getting the sheriff involved since he lives so far from town, he opts to do the investigation on his own.
