“We love, simply because we’re loved. God’s love comes first and ours is just a response. We didn’t trigger it – He did.”
I have always loved Susan May Warren’s writing. Her contemporary, her historical, her suspense…it’s all fabulous! She crafts characters that you connect with from the moment you meet them…and from then on you consider them friends. She draws you into each story and you are not only entertained, but ministered to.
As soon as I heard about the Montana Marshalls series, I knew I wanted to read them. I purchased the first book, KNOX, and it was sitting on my to-be-read pile when I heard that TATE was soon to hit shelves. These books were coming out fast! I devoured them both and oh my goodness!!! Ah-maz-ing!!! So, so good. I couldn’t put them down…KNOX or TATE and I really, really can’t wait for FORD to become available!
Until I started reading KNOX, I thought that the Montana Marshalls were marshals…as in law enforcement marshals. Haha – nope! This series is a family with the last name of Marshall. This is my favorite kind of series because the siblings all play a part in each book. We know them all, on some level, from the beginning of the series which makes the rest of the series that much better. I am a stickler for reading my books in order. With this series, I would recommend that even readers who aren’t sticklers read them in order, as the author has set this series up to overlap one another.
We have a good feeling for who the main characters, Tate and Glo, are when we start TATE because they were such an integral part of KNOX. We are already invested in their relationship even though there are some huge obstacles to conquer to make it work. I loved seeing them grow and learn to overcome these obstacles. I also loved seeing them learn to truly rely on God and His leading. I can’t say enough good about this book – or this series. If you don’t already have them in your to-be-read pile…order them now!!
