Their whirlwind romance takes the hard road toward happily-ever-after as disaster tests their love for each other and their faith in God’s goodness.

Sophie Shultz smiles at her future, even when she doesn’t feel like it, but when a country drive leaves this city-girl stranded in the mud, the cowboy who stops to help gives her plenty to smile about. For real. Lance Carson is tall, handsome, and kind, if a little on the quiet side—not to mention the owner of Big Prairie’s celebrated vineyard.

Lance has always had a decided preference for solitude, but when he rescues Sophie he develops a whole new appreciation for companionship. It doesn’t take long for him to lose his heart as she fills the aching void life’s disappointments have left behind. But a family issue has put him in a hard spot, pushing him to a decision that will ruin his relationship with many of Big Prairie’s citizens—and devastate Sophie, who adores her newly adopted hometown. Before he can figure out how to tell her, someone tattles on his plans.

As their relationship is put to the test, conflict presses in from every side. Can this rapidly grown romance sink its roots deep enough to weather the storms, or will Lance and Sophie both lose their way?

Flooding my heart with rich emotions, When I Lost My Way is such a beautiful story of grace! I’m constantly amazed at how Jennifer Rodewald can convey such depth and wisdom in her stories.

Lance and Sophie are polar opposites. He is very serious and slightly socially awkward. She is all sunshine and smiles and is an extrovert. His faith is weak; hers has been nurtured and strengthened by her parents. I loved the way these two stretched each other and met a need in the other for love and acceptance. The struggles in their relationship and the way they recovered reflected the kind of love we should have for one another.

As the storms continued to come and the waters threatened to wash away all that Lance had been building, he had a choice to give in to the despair that threatened to erode his faith or to trust the Lord.

Starting with Miss Jane, the elderly Sunday school teacher I fell in love with in When I Come Home Again, the citizens of Big Prairie captured my heart as they exemplified the love of Christ to one who was making choices that could hurt them. Not that they were perfect, and in fact, the grace they showed was after some cold shoulders. But isn’t that part of the Christian life? Making mistakes. Being convicted. Then changing our attitudes to conform to the way Jesus would have us behave?

Having read this far, this is clearly the type of story you are interested in. So stop reading this, hurry, and grab a copy for yourself. You won’t regret it!!

Ultimately, she believes Love has conquered all—we just haven’t reached the HEA ending yet.
