Publisher's Summary

His town. Her god. Let the battle begin.

Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a "nice" hotel, he's intrigued enough to let them stay...especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre. It would seem, however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, "Why?" Does God really have a plan for each and every life?

Told with gritty, but not gratuitous, realism uncharacteristic of historical Christian fiction, A Lady in Defiance gives a nod to both Pride and Prejudice and Redeeming Love. The story, based on true events, is an "ensemble" piece that deftly weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance.

Includes bonus material! Get a sneak peek at the sequel, Hearts in Defiance!

    Ms Blanton get busy I need more Defiance! All kidding aside, this author is truly gifted. Her way of making you feel as if your right there in the thick of it is nothing short of amazing. She doesn't bore you with unnecessary description, yet you can picture everything perfectly. The story just flows so effortlessly. I'm hooked on this town called Defiance and all it's likable characters. Thank goodness for Book 2. After this one I just needed more! Now I've finished Book 2 and I still want more! Thank you Ms Blanton for a very pleasant experience.

    I truly enjoyed A Lady in Defiance. I felt that I had stepped back in time with the characters. It is an easy read and I did not want to put it down. This is my first read from this author and I look forward to more books I like this kind of historical fiction

    Story
    "Gritty, Emotional, Raw, and Forgiveness!"
    Would you listen to A Lady in Defiance again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen again. It was a very compelling story. The characters were well written. The story was very well told, I felt as if I were in Defiance with the sisters. Seeing, hearing and feeling all the things they did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Lady in Defiance?

    For me, one of the most memorable moments was when Naomi was pouring her heart out to God by the water's edge and Mr. McIntyre was listening in the shadows. I think it was a crucial point in changing his heart even if he didn't know it yet.


    Which character – as performed by Angel Clark – was your favorite?

    I liked her portrayal of Ian. Her Scottish brogue was very good. She also showed the care in his voice for Rebecca and concern for his friend/business partner McIntyre.


    If you could take any character from A Lady in Defiance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I think I'd like to take Rebecca out to dinner. She is the oldest sister yet Naomi is the protector. I would like to know how that came to be.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to reading/listening to more from Heather Blanton in the future.
