Yes, I would listen to Her Christmas Cowboy again with my granddaughters who share my beliefs and values. It's so refreshing to hear a beautiful love story untainted by "today's" loose morals portrayed in other all too available books.
One of the most memorable moments of Her Christmas Cowboy was when Elizabeth was all alone and faced the possibility of never seeing Jesse again. She trusted God as she continued the journey Jesse laid out for her until she met Indians along the way; but rather than succumbing to fear, she went with them in hope of finding Jesse, who she suspected was injured. This pioneer woman's courage will encourage readers who face this day and age's fears.
I was moved by the way Elizabeth was willing to help Sam and Jeremiah out, even entertaining the possibility of marrying Sam and becoming Jeremiah's mom, despite the feelings she had begun to have towards Jesse.
I believe this book would be a great beginning to a series! I would love to read/hear more about Lizzie and Jesse's adventures together as they face the challenges of what pioneer life involved. Young teens need good clean stories filled with characters who exhibit godly principles and high standards, so such a series would be welcomed by many in today's society.
