If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

A Path Less Traveled by Cathy Bryant


A Path Less Traveled by Cathy Bryant


Back Cover:  Trish James is tired of being rescued.  When a spooked horse claims her husband's life, she's determined to blaze a path for herself and her traumatized son without outside help.  But will that mean leaving the place etched on her heart?

Andy Tyler has had to struggle for everything, and starting a new law practice in Miller's Creek, Texas is no different.  Though prepared for business challenges, he's not prepared to fall in love--especially with yet another woman who will probably abandon him for her career.

Will Andy and Trish be able to see past their limited human understanding to take a path less traveled?

Author:  Cathy Bryant is a former public school teacher who handed in her chalk for a private music studio and writing career.  Her passion is to write heart-stirring stories that show God's life-changing grace.  Her debut novel, Texas Roads (a 2009 ACFW Genesis finalist) released in early 2010.  A Path Less Traveled, the second book in the Miller's Creek novels, was launched in the fall of 2010.  The Way of Grace (book three in the series) will be available in 2011.

Cathy is the owner and editor of the popular blog, WordVessel, and has written devotions for the Upper Room devotional magazine, and for two devotional books, Spirit & Heart: A 30-Day Devotional Journey and Faith & Finance:  In God We Trust.  She's the wife of a music minister, the mother of two grown sons and a beautiful daughter-in-love, and the Nana of Harrisen.  A Texas gal since birth, she lives in a century-old Texas farmhouse with her husband and a phobia-ridden cat.  Visit her website at www.CatBryant.com

My Thoughts:  This book was totally and completely enjoyable to read.  I received the book on Friday and finished reading it on Sunday.  I could hardly put it down.  The storyline is very well written and grabbed my attention in the first chapter and never let me go.  I wish it could go on and on.  The two main characters have both been hurt in life and are kind of afraid to trust someone again.  Trish has a son called Little Bo and I just wanted to grab him up and give him a great big hug.  He was totally adorable.

One of my favorite lines in the book is this:  "God doesn't waste any hurt you endure, Trish.  What he allows into your life--even something as painful as Doc's death--He'll use for the days ahead..."  I believe this is so true and have seen it played out in my life.  I love it when I can read a really good fiction book and learn more about my relationship with Christ.  I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good story to read.  I can't wait until Book 3 in the series comes out next year.

  2. Cathy, I'm so glad you enjoyed the story (and that the spiritual message I was hoping to pass on came through). Thanks so much for posting your review. Yours is the first for "A Path Less Traveled."

    Many Blessings,

  3. I love that quote too! God never wastes anything. We, on the other hand, waste lots of opportunities, lol!
