Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Ever since I wrote Stolen Secrets, I have had Robyn's story waiting in the background, just needing a little more thought before I could write it. After I got it started, I realized it was actually Daniel's story, with Robyn acting as the catalyst to help heal him.

From the Inside Flap

This book links closely with the characters from Stolen Secrets and Tennessee Touch.

Sweet Romance With A Touch of Suspense

Robyn is on the way to visit friends with an abusive boyfriend. When they stop at at picturesque lookout he mentions marriage and she tells him gently she doesn't see a future for them. Some men don't take rejection well. He handles it by shoving her off a cliff and leaving her for dead.

But she won't die. She crawls on hands and knees until she almost passes out. But before she does she ties her silk scarf to the collar of a dog. The dog drives his owner crazy until the owner finally realizes why he's going nuts. He helps Robyn into his house and warms her up.

He's there to clear out his dead son's things and get the house ready for market. But with Robyn there he begins to realize the many memories the property has. He's grown up here and was happy for years. But his ex-wife disliked it, even when he built her a new house. When their son, a toddler, died in a tragic accident, she left him and moved back to NY city.

As he helps Robyn heal and takes her to meet the friends she was coming to visit he, too, is healing. Her friends are friends he grew up with. They convince Robyn to report her ex's assault so that he's unable to do such a thing to another woman. A romance develops and Dan begins to realize he doesn't want to let the house go, as he remembers all the good memories of his son and family.

A story of love, loss and redemption with a touch of suspense with justice found, this is a story that will bring a lump to your throat and leave you smiling.

Those looking for a more serious holiday romance will find in the pages of A Tennessee Christmas by Nancy Radke. It's an emotional tale of a man who has lost a child and himself in the process and a woman that has gotten lost in the mountains of Tennessee. Throw in a loveable dog and you've got the makings of a beautiful, heart-felt holiday romance. If you're tired of the romantic comedies, and want something serious, read this novella.

Deep sadness turns to joy in this Christmas tale. Robyn is a woman who’d been left for dead by her abusive boyfriend. Thanks to a heroic dog, she meets Daniel. After the loss of his child and a failed marriage, he is about to close up and sell a house he’d always loved. When he rescues Robyn and helps her, their budding relationship teaches him to reassess the memories of his past, while Robyn finds the courage to face her future. This is a story about healing and learning to go on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Christian Christmas Short Story! December 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A sweet tender Christian romance about two injured people (one emotionally, one physically) who find each other under unusual circumstances. Ties in with previous characters in the Sisters of Spirit series. I enjoyed the story very much but I just felt it could have been a little longer to see their love develop more. Sweet Christmas read!

I enjoyed this book a lot. The fact that the characters were roaming around my part of the world make it feel much more real to me. The story was exciting and did not get slow or boring at any time. I think you would enjoy reading this book. Give it a try.

More About the Author

Nancy Radke grew up on a wheat and cattle ranch in SE Washinton State. She attended a one-room country school through the eighth grade. She learned to ride bareback at age 3 (Really! It was a common practice.) and when she got off or fell off, she would pull her horse's nose to the ground, get on behind its ears, and the horse would lift its head so she could scoot down onto its back. She spent most of her childhood exploring the Blue Mountain trails that bordered the ranchlands. She and a friend once took a trail that turned out to be a two day trip. They always rode with matches and pocket knives, so made camp and returned the next day. These long rides worried her parents, but provided plenty of time to make up stories. Her first novel was set in the Blues, and is entitled APPALOOSA BLUES. TURNAGAIN LOVE was the first one published. It rated a four star review from Affaire de Coeur. Scribes World said "Turnagain Love has some fascinating twists and turns, unexpected complications, and charming scenes." It is light and humorous.

Her next book was CLOSED DOORS, a novel about a man who couldn't read. This was especially interesting to Ms. Radke, as she taught remedial reading, sixth grade, and other classes as a school teacher. All her stories are linked by characters who know each other from book to book. For example, Zack and Jennel show up in two more books besides TURNAGAIN LOVE. Also her books have a theme, such as the theme for TENNESSEE TOUCH, which is that just being alive is dangerous, so you can't be so cautious that you miss out on life. Her favorite character is Hugo, who is the hero in SONGS FOR PERRI. Hugo shows up in SPIRIT OF A CHAMPION and in the first book of the new BROTHERS OF SPPIRIT series that she is writing with her son, Nolan Radke. (No title yet. Nolan's books are also on Amazon.)

She has gone through survival and outward bound training, including long-distance ocean swimming. Facts from this training shows up in COURAGE DARES and SPIRIT OF A CHAMPION. Her western ranching background shows up in the pioneer series, The Traherns, and APPALOOSA BLUES, which is now available. Her critique group used to say that she talked and wrote backward. This really helped when writing the Traherns, as the dialect seemed very natural. APPALOOSA BLUES, an AMAZON TOP 100 BEST SELLER, is the final book for both the Trahern series and the Sisters of Spirit Series.

Ranch life gives a person a can-do attitude, so when she decided to write and produce a children's Bible on DVD, she never doubted she could do it. Never mind that she had to learn to use a Mac, Photoshop, and the Final Cut Studio programs. The first volume of the SHOW AND TELL BIBLE took eight years to complete. It is two hours long, contains 650 hand-drawn pictures, and gives the impression of a picture book being read by a well-loved parent or grandparent. Little children are absolutely enthralled by it. The second volume is three hours long, 850 pictures, concluding with Esther. It was finished in three years, so she really did manage to speed up.

The feedback from parents and kids has been tremendous. Nancy is working on the third volume now, which will complete the Old Testament. When the entire Bible is finished, she plans to do other children's books on DVD. And for her romance fans, there are more of those coming. For people who love cookbooks, those on Amazon are written by a different lady with the same name.
