"I recommend Crossroads as a good clean, often humorous Christian romance."

"I love that the author tackled the weighty issues in this book. I usually read to leave the hard parts of daily life behind me, but she handled those hard parts with grace and truth and enhanced the story. A Texas setting is a favorite of mine too. Bravo!"

"I absolutely loved this book. I laughed and cried. I cheered and felt as much hopelessness as Mara. Her slow turning was heart wrenching...and humbling...what an awesome God we serve."

"Cathy Bryant gives the reader a story that will touch the heart and remind you to give praise to God for all His blessings."

"This is a very touching story and so well written, I cried in parts."

"Crossroads is one of those books that comes along and quickly finds its way into your heart. From the first page I found myself thoroughly immersed in the characters and their stories. We feel their heartaches, their fears, their struggles....I laughed, I cried, and felt like I took the journey with them. I am now a die-hard Cathy Bryant fan, and can't wait to read more of her books."

"If life has treated you roughly lately, if your faith has been on a downward trend, scoop up this book, start reading it, and don't put it down, literally EVER...Probably one of the best books I have ever encountered."

Read the series!

This book was one of the seven I read in this series. I honestly struggled to get my work done for wanting to read more. I loved the way you feel like you know everyone in Miller Creek. Like you’re part of the town. I felt what they were feeling, as well as feeling encouraged through my daily life to lift up prayers and let God direct my paths. Loved every single book-hope to find another series to read that’s near this good!! Great job! Keep up the good work!
