Not by Might by Al Lacy
"Not By Might" by Al Lacy is a christian based novel set in the Old West. It is about faith and forgiveness in an unsettled time.
*Tears fill the eyes of Nurse Natalie Fallon when she discovers old flame Rex Rawlins in the hospital emergency room, paralyzed from the waist down. They find they're still in love - but Rex refuses to let Natalie marry a man who can't walk. Will a miracle grant them a life together?
Meanwhile, Natalie's friend and fellow nurse - Breanna Baylor Brockman - is terror-stricken when she learns that her husband, John Brockman, is riding into a trap with an impostor who plans to kill him. Can Breanna warn John before it's too late?*
I enjoyed the story lines between Natalie and Rex as well as Breanna and John. The conversations that Breanna and John had in regards to scriptures was very enlightening and refreshing.
The only negative I have was that I read this in e-book format. I am a 'hold-the-book-in-my-hand' type reader.
I highly recommend this book.
