Martha Rogers's Becoming Lucy ~ Reviewed
Becoming Lucy, Winds Across the Prairie Series #1
By: Martha Rogers
Number of Pages: 304
Publication Date: 2010
After her parents' deaths, 17-year-old heiress Lucy Bishop takes refuge on her aunt and uncle's ranch in Barton Creek, Oklahoma. If it weren't for ranch hand Jake Starnes, the genteel young woman wouldn't survive the backbreaking work. But a dark secret torments him. Can Jake face his past before somebody claims Lucy's hand---or her life?
Becoming Lucy is about a young lady named Lucinda. After her parents are killed in a buggy accident, she goes to live with her aunt and uncle on a ranch in Oklahoma. In the meantime, she meets a young man named Jake, and though they take a liking to each other, he has a past that he is hiding from her. At the same time, Lucinda’s uncle from her father’s side is trying to kill her because she is due an inheritance when she turns 18.
This story is very well written. I like how it shows life on a ranch in the late 1800’s. I like how it showed the amount of faith and trust that people had in God.
