Book Review: ‘When I Lost My Way’ (A Big Prairie Romance) by Jennifer Rodewald

About The Book:
Their whirlwind romance takes the hard road toward happily-ever-after as disaster tests their love and their faith in God’s goodness.

Sophie Shultz smiles at her future even when she doesn’t feel like it. After a lifetime of fearing she’d never fit in anywhere, she’s found a place to belong in the small town of Big Prairie. When a country drive leaves this city girl stranded in the mud, the cowboy who stops to help gives her plenty to smile about. For real. Lance Carson is tall, handsome, and kind, if a little on the quiet side—not to mention the owner of Big Prairie’s celebrated vineyard. Her adopted hometown keeps getting better…

Lance has always preferred solitude, but when he rescues Sophie, he develops a new appreciation for companionship. It doesn’t take long for him to lose his heart as she fills the aching void life’s disappointments have left behind. But a feud with his wild brother has put him in a hard spot, pushing him to a decision that will ruin his relationship with many of Big Prairie’s citizens—and devastate Sophie. Before he can figure out how to tell her, someone tattles on his plans.

As their relationship is put to the test, conflict presses in from every side. Can this rapidly grown romance sink its roots deep enough to weather the storms, or will Lance and Sophie lose their way?

‘The thing is, the people we love will disappoint us. That’s just human fact. That’s when it’s hardest to love.’

Lance Carson finds Sophie Schultz stuck on the dirt road toward his farm and vineyard one day and a romance develops quickly. Lance is a loner and Sophie is wide open and never meets a stranger. Come along as these two face several hurdles, including a disaster like no other, on their road to love and a future together. Also, watch them as their hearts open fully to God who loves them and has a perfect plan for their lives. The God who knows how to work well in the midst of conflict. And they have plenty.

Jennifer Rodewald brings us another strong story of the great impact God’s grace has in the lives of those who open their heart to Him. The emotions are strong here and very impactful. What a wonderful offering from her! Highly recommended.
