A Hope Revealed (Prescott Pioneers Book 4) Kindle Edition
Prescott Pioneers Series #4 - sequel to A Life Restored
Christian Historical Romance set in the Arizona Territory in 1866.
Pain. Disappointment. Fear.
Life turned out differently than Mary Colter expected. With her abusive husband either missing or dead, and the ranch gone, she is left to raise her two children on her own. When a neighbor takes compassion on her, she finds her hope ignited—perhaps she can start over on her brother-in-law’s ranch in Arizona.
Warren Cahill is confronted with one problem after another in his new role as foreman of Colter Ranch. Missing cattle and hot-headed cowhands take most of his attention. When Mary arrives at the ranch, tensions rise and he finds himself in the middle of it.
Will Mary’s hope for a life free from abuse finally be realized? Can Warren move beyond his past to embrace a new hope?

I was married to an abusive man at least he age of 18 for five long bitter years. I could tell things that would curl your hair, but because I forgave that abuse I will not. I cannot say that I forgot because I haven't but I don't let it drag me into o despair any longer.
My son and I suffered bitterly. There was a man I loved before him, but I allowed his mother to break us up, she claimed if I really loved him I would let him go ... And so much more. I was so wrong to listen.
Eight years later he called me out of the blue, we were both divorced by then but we were still deeply in love with each other. That was January 30, 1975, by May 27, 1975 we were married and still are after 40 years. Oh we've had our ups and downs but we work together to solve them by putting Jehovah and Jesus first.
If my x hadn't walked out and insisted on the divorce I would still be suffering at his hands because I believed in the sanctity of marriage. I'm so glad I finally listened to his threats and divorced him as my husband now is my soulmate, my life. He adopted my son and they are very close, but that is another story too.
Anyway everyone deserves a second chance but not all appreciate it and really change. Reuben surly didn't. When you are in an abusive marriage it's hard to believe you are a person who is worthy of being loved and cared for, especially when your made to believe it was all your fault and you got what you deserved. I'm very happy all turned out well for Mary and Warren, Will and Hannah, Adam and Julia, Thomas and Caroline, as well as Ben and Betty. Now it's Paul's turn so I'm on to the story about him.
This book had some of the same problems as the others in the series (grammatical errors, misused words, the pronouns for God not capitalized) but it is still enjoyable. I was glad to see a definite conclusion here because not all the books had one. This series should definitely be read together and in order.
One night after the children are sleeping she hears a knock on the door, as fear grips her, thinking it is Reuben returning, she answers to find a strange woman. This woman reveals a secret about one thing Reuben did to her that she never knew about, a new low for Reuben even. A few days later Mary is told that her father secretly left her some money so she makes a decision to move west to Will Colter's, Reuben's brother, ranch hoping if Reuben does return he won't know where to find her and the children.
It isn't long after arriving that she discovers she isn't safe at all. Mary will do anything to protect her children, even if it means not telling Will everything. When Will finds out what she's been hiding he to kick her out of his home but Hannah, his wife, won't let him do that.
I think this is the best book in the series, I found myself with tears running down my cheeks several times. Oh the things Mary had to go through in her marriage and the things she found out about her husband that she never knew, but she kept her strength and moved forward. You really do need to read the whole series, I think anyway, to get the full impact of this book. In the first three you only get a glimpse of how hard it was being married to Reuben Colter but you need that to realize just how mean a human being he really is.
I would definitely recommend this book, this series! I really enjoy Karen's writing and will be looking for more books from her.
