Sharon Takes A Hand, by Rosey Dow

Sharon Hastings was orphaned when she was thirteen. Her guardian, Uncle Rudolph, sent her to boarding school and took good care of her financially. However, she never met him. She is delighted to be leaving boarding school and coming home to live on her uncle’s ranch. When she arrives, she is greeted by a mystery. Her uncle disappeared six weeks ago. The ranch now belongs to her. She is determined to not only run the ranch, but to discover what happened to her uncle.

The connecting thread in these three delightful stories is the setting, New Mexico Territory in the 1890s. Three Christian authors united to offer readers tales of faith and love.
