Claiming Mariah... a book review

ISBN: 9781414380964
Available: NOW in ebook format
Tyndale House Publisher
354 pages
I love the cover art!
Independent, compassionate, God-fearing
Dark, strong, unforgiving
"In light of her father’s death, Mariah Malone sends a letter that will forever alter the lives of her family."  Instead of receiving a postal response,  Slade Donovan rides into Mariah's Lazy M Ranch with his plans laid out.  He will take what was taken from his father; the ranch and land bought with stolen gold.
Mariah knew there was bad blood between the two families; she just didn't know how deep it went.  Could it be true that her loving father not only stole money from Mr. Donovan, but also shot him?  While she ponders how to handle the news and the demanding Slade, Mariah seeks wisdom from her grandmother and God. 
Read Chapter One HERE
"With the ranch now under Slade’s careful eye, he will unearth more than he ever imagined as a devious plot of thievery, betrayal and murder threatens more than the well-being of the ranch, endangering the lives of those who hold it dear."  Can Mariah find forgiveness rise over resentment between her and Slade?  Or will the sins of the fathers forever alter their future? 
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Pam Hillman has written a beautiful story of forgiveness that we can all model in life.  It is also a wonderful reminder that the sins of the father DO NOT need to be generational sins; the chains can be broken.  Thank you for a wonderful book! 
I received a complimentary e-copy of Pam Hillman's Claiming Mariah for my honest review.  No other compensation was received.

  2. Thanks for the review, Ellen! I'm so glad you enjoyed Claiming Mariah.

    And thank you for the reminder that the fathers' sins do not have to be perpetuated from generation to generation. How easy it is to forget that when we're caught up in a decades old "family-feud".

    Let it go, and let God!
