Like Iron Sharpening Iron — Cynthia Roemer
Today I’m happy to welcome author Cynthia Roemer as she shares about her new release, Under Prairie Skies.
One of my favorite aspects of writing is creating and developing characters. I love watching them change and grow as the story deepens. It’s one of the main reasons I write, hoping readers, as well as I, will grow along with my characters.
Charlotte Stanton, the heroine in my new release, Under Prairie Skies, is a strong-willed, feisty red-head who cares more about herself than others. Readers first met Charlotte in Book One in my Prairie Sky Series, Under This Same Sky. It’s Charlotte’s jealous nature that helped spur her cousin, Becky, to stow away on her father’s wagon headed for St. Louis that began her heartfelt journey back to God.
In this second book, Charlotte meets her match in Chad Avery, a would-be cattleman who has a way of exposing Charlotte’s weaknesses and igniting her anger. It’s Chad’s uncanny ability to get to the heart of a matter that becomes a catalyst for change within Charlotte, causing her to look beyond herself to the needs of others. But Chad isn’t without his own troubles and soon finds himself on the opposite end of things when Charlotte turns the tables to expose his hidden fears regarding his past.
The theme verse, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another,” (Proverbs 27:17) is woven throughout the pages as both Chad and Charlotte battle their inner spirits to move past their failings and become the people God longs for them to be. While Becky’s story was more her journey back to God and finding love in unexpected places, Chad and Charlotte’s journey is one of relationship and how the Lord used them to shape and mold each other’s character…and fall in love in the process.
About her book:
~ Beyond shattered dreams lies a realm of possibilities ~
Illinois prairie ~1855
Unsettled by the news that her estranged cousin and uncle are returning home after a year away, Charlotte Stanton goes to ready their cabin and finds a handsome stranger has taken up residence. Convinced he’s a squatter, she throws him off the property before learning his full identity. Little does she know, their paths are destined to cross again.
Quiet and ruggedly handsome, Chad Avery’s uncanny ability to see through Charlotte’s feisty exterior and expose her inner weaknesses both infuriates and intrigues her. When a tragic accident incites her family to move east, Charlotte stays behind in hopes of becoming better acquainted with the elusive cattleman. Yet Chad’s unwillingness to divulge his hidden past, along with his vow not to love again, threatens to keep them apart forever.
