If you're looking for a quick, yet solid read with sweet romance and dash of humor, I HIGHLY recommend "Waiting Out the Storm" by one of my new favorite authors, Ruth Logan Herne! Light yet meaningful, you're sure to enjoy these lovable characters and be eager to join them as they weather the storms of life and love, while trusting in their only Shelter from them. I admired their faith and their strength and was once again pleasantly surprised by the layers and heart Ruth can fit into such a ...more

Awesome story

This story spoke about several different family issues of today! Sad to say, Sarah experience a lot of hurt from the community too! I enjoyed how the community came together along with family later!

I'm giving it 3 stars even though I didn't really care for how the book was wrapped up. I've read a large number of these love inspired books and I am very picky with endings. I thought the ending was overkill. I really liked Sarah and Craig and the majority of the book though.

When I'm looking for a quick read I pick up a Love Inspired book. This book, the second by author Ruth Logan Herne is one of the best I've read in a while. Admittedly I usually only read from the LI historical line but this interested me and I just happened to win a copy from Seekerville. I really enjoyed the characters especially "plain Jane" Sarah Slocum and hunky veterinarian, Craig Macklin and even the four-legged critters too. The author's sense of humor shines through in this book even ...more

I can’t believe this is only the second book by Ruth Logan Herne. I was captivated by her debut novel, Winter’s End, but Waiting Out The Storm had me laughing and crying and turning pages until the end. A deep and thoughtful look into the life of young girl neglected and scorned, who grows into a woman with hesitant self-esteem, yet made all the more stronger for the hardships of life. Big fuzzy dogs and innocent wooly sheep are a hit, too. Ms. Herne has an uncanny ability to draw emotions from ...more

Recommends it for: those who love inspirational romance
I have always loved the shepherd imagery of the Bible so this book caught my eye. A shepherdess raising ship in rural New York (yes, there is more to the state than NYC), a veterinarian who doesn't like sheep, a Hatfield and McCoy situation, great detailing and message. The ingredients made for a great read. This book is the second in a series and I am looking forward to the third.

Great story. It lulled in snippets here and there, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
