The Preacher's Daughter

The Preacher’s Daughter by Cheryl St John

Harlequin Historicals

May 2007

304 Pages


I wasn’t a big fan of Western Romances – until I read Cheryl St John’s The Preacher’s Daughter and realized what I had been missing! Well-written, moving and emotional, Ms. St. John is a writer historical romance readers will simply adore.

As the daughter of Reverend Holdridge, Lorabeth yearns to escape the dull life she leads where she feels stifled under her father’s strict regime of prayer and sacrifice. Lorabeth is desperate to experience what it is really like to be free and living in a world not dominated by religion and her father’s sermons and when she gets the chance of becoming a housekeeper for the boisterous Chaney family, she gleefully accepts unaware that for the first time in her life, she is going to be feeling the faint stirrings of real passion.

At the Chaney’s, Lorabeth falls for Benjamin Chaney, but will the innocent preacher’s daughter be able to make him forget the demons which dog his every move?

The Preacher’s Daughter is a fantastic read which I highly recommend! Don’t miss it! Five red roses. JB
