Genre: Inspirational/historical romance

1985 is almost a nightmare year for Jessica and Jake Bennett. Even though they are thrilled to be expecting their first child, they are facing ongoing battles with their cattle ranch. The previous summer they had to fight to save the cattle from draught, but now they are in danger of freezing to death. Even worse, Jake contracts pneumonia and must watch his health, putting more of the burden on Jessica.

When Jessica and Jake are forced to sell off their cattle, they discover that all Jessica’s money, which she thought was safely in the bank, has gone missing! When investigating her missing inheritance, she discovers a link between the banker and Unionists who target southerners even though the war is over.

As the conspiracy runs deeper, Jessica must put her life—and the life of her unborn child—at risk to stop the thieves and regain her rightful inheritance.

FAITH’S REWARD is the third and final book in Ms. Barley’s The Sierra Chronicles series. It was nice to get reacquainted with Jessica and her new husband, Jake, and to see some of the struggles they faced as they tried to eek out a living in the wild west.

Filled with plenty of action, drama, and suspense, FAITH’S REWARD will keep you on the edge of your seats as you cheer for Jessica and Jake even while you want to shake them for taking risks with the life of their baby. A good read that will encourage you to keep going and keep trusting God, even when situations make it difficult. $9.99. 312 pages.
