I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Psalm 111:1-2 NLT

Book Review (and Contest): Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist

Author Deaanne Gist's latest novel, Love on the Line, sets an independent heroine and a just-as-strong Texas Ranger hero against one another. The plot involves train robbers, the early days of telephones -- and animals' rights.

Yep, that's right.

Switchboard operator Georgia Gail is also a bird-lover. With a backyard that's a natural refuge for all kind of birds, she detests how women's clothes -- particularly women's bonnets -- are decorated with bird feathers, bird heads and sometimes with entire birds.

I've got to tell you, that was one story line I've never read before.

So while Ranger Luke Palmer pretends to be a telephone lineman while trying to find a gang of train robbers, Georgie rallies the women to boycott the local store selling bird-decorated bonnets.

And, of course, there's romance. And mystery. And to make it fun for her readers, Deeanne's hosting a contest!
