All right, so if you read the book summary and you're anything like me, you chuckled and went "REALLY? That's a bit cheesy, don't you think?" (But I wanted to read the other two in the series, so I had to read this one...) And it could have been the cheesiest book ever, but it was VERY well written, with very intriguing and believable characters. I mean, the book wasn't perfect by any means. There were a couple of things that sorta bugged me, but overall, it was downright moving.

Very enjoyable listening experience. I think I preferred Sabrina to Cassidy. It was lovely to see Sabrina's transformation from prostitute to a respectable woman. Rylan makes for a good romantic interest and I loved the way he pursued Sabrina. I loved watching their relationship blossom. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Entertaining/Addictive?: Sabrina's backstory gave the second book in this series a little more depth which made me feel more

A pastor and a former prostitute. Quite a complex combination, but it was a wonderful example of God's grace at work in our lives.

I could see Rylan and Sabrina, the main characters, were perfect for each other (just like all the other characters in the book did). A Pastor's heart is to reach out to the lost and care for the unlovely, and as a former prostitute, seeing herself as the lowest of the low, Sabrina would not consider anyone above her compassion. They would serve together well.

I love

The second entry in the Big Sky Dreams trilogy by author Lori Wick is everything the first one ("Cassidy") wasn't: itt's respectful and honest. It shows character growth. The story is there for you to read and enjoy--and learn from.

In the bustling town of Denver, Colorado, a policeman and his wife, Danny and Callie, befriend a young prostitute named Sabrina (Bri) Matthews. She begins to learn about God and salvation from them and becomes a believer. Worried that she will slide back into her form

Amazingggg. I thought it would be an airy fairy christian romance, but it delves heaps deeper and deals with the reasons woman became/become prostitutes, how hard it is for them to get out and the healing power of Jesus :)Even though its set in the 1880's its still relevant with its themes of men objectifying women, and women feeling that they have to conform to men's worldly expectations?? Instead of realizing theyre a cherished daughter of God :)
Also makes a point of the fact that if God can

I was intrigued by the story after reading the back of the book because it reminded me of one of my all time favorite books - Reddeming Love, by Francine Rivers. Sabrina is set in the late 1800s and is a story of a prostitute who left that life, moved to another town, and tried to start life again - a totally new life.

I must admit, as I started reading, it didn't have the same heart wrenching hold on me as Redeeming Love did. Francine truly has a gift in her writing, and this book didn't flow q

With a few exceptions, I enjoyed this book much more than I enjoyed Cassidy. It's entirely possible that I enjoyed it more because I had such low expectations. There was A LOT of sermonizing in this...much more than I remembered in Cassidy, and it was a little much for me. I fast-forwarded through some of it, and tuned out a lot more of the rest. I also found myself getting a bit annoyed that everyone was so perfect. I don't read books for realism (otherwise I wouldn't enjoy fantasy so much), bu ...more

Last week I read Cassidy and liked it so much I immediately went and got the rest of the books in the series from the library. Book two was even better than the first and am looking forward to book three.

The story starts out in Denver, CO and at first I was saddened because I had hoped the stories would continue to take place in Token Creek. Well, I just had to be patient.

Raven is a prostitute. Danny Barshaw is a police officer investigating a murder on the street when he notices the young woman

Recommended to Margaret by: Harvest House
Forgiving oneself of their past sins is a difficult issue no matter what it is that you are guilty of. The story of a prostitute coming to Christ has been told. It was told in the Bible, it was told by Francine Rivers, it was told by Tamera Alexander, and now I've read it again from Lori Wick. But that is not saying oh, read it move on. Definitely not. The fact of hearing over and over again that no matter how bad you think your past actions have been, God loves you is incredible. The story of S ...more

I normally enjoy Lori Wick's writing. I think Sabrina is a series, but couldn't tell. I had trouble following the main plot as there were a lot of side plots and side characters which I couldn't place. The action seemed to stop with a lot of discussions about sermons and Bible readings. It was distracting. Several times I thought that I wouldn't finish it, but I did. I wouldn't read it again.

I accidentally purchased the first book in this series, and realized what a brilliant writer Lori Wick is and I wished to continue the series. Sabrina is well written and very inspiring!

I read this book and was pleasantly surprised. Loved all the Characters. Felt in some ways like I was reading the book of Hosea. Yet thankfully, Sabrina doesn't want to go back to her old life like Hosea's wife did.

This is a Christian historical romance book that is fairly predictable and contains a lot of scripture, including the plan of salvation. Sabrina, the main character, was a prostitute who is befriended by the sheriff and his wife who share God's plan of salvation with her and help her get out of prostitution. She leaves town and starts a new life, supporting herself by being a seamstress and working in a mercantile. She tries to help other prostitutes and finds love in her new town. It's a book t ...more

Some people on this site complain about preachy, well this book was preachy. Wow! It was even a bit much for me. It was interesting, but just too "perfect" and preachy.

I give it a three, because I loved the premise: The pastor and the prostitute. But again, as is traditional for Lori Wick, she has this unbelievably fantastic story idea, and proceeds to destroy it with preachy Christian messages, (and I'm a Christian, so that's saying something) corny love and really awkward phrases:

"Will you walk me home?"
"On one condition."
"What's that?"
"I get to hold your hand."

corny..... and really painful to read :p The only one of her books that I've ever truly LOVED is t

This book wasn't great, but it was a step up from the first book in the series. Again, there's no secret who the heroine will marry at the end, but at least this time there seems to be some real obstacles in the couple's way. The short scenes made a little more sense because I was familiar with the characters. I plan to read the third book in the series, mainly because it is easy and light. If I were to recommend it, I would say that the series is a good choice for adults who are learning Englis ...more

This was the second in the Big Sky Dreams series. I ejoyed this one the best. Sabrina, who lives a life of a prostitute in Denver, when a Policman and his wife take and interest in her and help get her out of that life, but it is hard to get away from her past in Denver, so she moves to Montana. I thought this character was really engaging and I enjoyed reading this story.

Set in Denver, CO in 1880, Lori Wick writes about a young prostitute that saves another one from a beating, and it turn, is saved by the sheriff and his wife, a wife who had once been in the same profession. Lots of Scripture support the story, and the men's fellowship who meet regularly to pray and try and clean up the town painted a great picture for solutions in our time.

I feel like the story moves extremely slowly, which could be due, in part, to the fact I'm listening to the book on CD. The storyline is nice and I like the reminder that God's grace covers all sin. But some frustrations with the way the author writes weigh on me, such as "that woman" and "get wet" in reference to wading in the creek. Who talks like that all the time?

Wick's later series (including this one) are not nearly as strong as her earlier work.

My theories: she is lightening her schedule as she approaches a well-earned retirement, or she's already retired and the last few series have a ghost writer.

My recommendation: skip this series and check-out her early work from the library.

a bit unbelievable how the story first unfolds, BUT ... then again, maybe during that time, when people weren't as afraid of "getting involved", it very well COULD have happened!

again, i loved the down to earth characters, and the realism. looking forward to the next book in the series, providing i can get my hands on it!
