Sometimes the path to freedom is found in an unexpected future.
Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters, the pieces scattering to the wind when she is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker. But when a telegram arrives announcing the man who captured her heart is on a train to Boston, Rosalind must hide her true feelings before the thin cord of her existence unravels the deadly secrets she keeps.
Cowboy Trent Easton returns to his roots in Boston society to find his childhood friend, the love of his heart. Instead he finds a broken woman engaged to a man close to her father’s age. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he determines to do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?
Faith: What is one sentence you would use to get a Godly message into the readers
Tanya: Wow, what a thought-provoking question. Since I write contemporary and historical romance, I guess it would depend which story I was writing. If I were to write in both genres, this is what I might say. Contemporary: The Lord forgave me so why would I focus on the sin, but not His grace? Historical: For the Lord gave up His life for me, burdened with my sins, and yet, He calls me by name into His perfect grace.
Faith: How do you write your belief into a story without sounding preachy?
Tanya: I think it makes a difference when I allow the Lord to take my stories wherever He wants them to go and I write from the heart. For me storytelling isn’t about being preachy, but a way to share the characteristics of God, His faithfulness, and His love for others in a way people can relate to.
Faith: How did God inspire you for this book?
Tanya: Sometimes in life our future is unclear and so uncertain that we can’t see past our circumstance. In The Rescue, we see my heroine, Rosalind, struggling to trust God with her future. Personally, I struggle with the same fear from time to time. It’s my hope that when people read Rosalind and Trent’s story, they will see the unending love of the Lord and the work of His hand in their own lives.
Faith: Is there a character most like you?
Faith: What’s the hardest thing about being an author?
Tanya: Strangely for me, it’s the preparation before the release of a new story. There’s so much that goes into a release and sometimes my head spins with all the details. Or I eat too much
Faith: Is it ever hard to keep new story ideas coming?
Tanya: Never! I always have stories waiting to be written but there isn’t enough time in the day. The fun part is when a secondary character finds their way into my head, reminding me to hurry up because their story is next. LOL!
