As a child, Ruthie MacNeil was taken in by a local farm family when her Ma and Pa died. This family was cruel and abusive, using Ruthie as a slave. Smart and a quick learner, Ruthie adapted to her environment and became a survivor. On a wagon train trek across the west, her adopted family and Ruthie are swept away by a flood. Ruthie trapped in the planking of the wagon ended up unconscious on a river bank in Texas.

Luke Stone was heading home to reclaim his family farm. A scoundrel, Greer, claims that his father sold him the farm but that’s impossible since Luke already held the deed and was the owner. Sure that Greer killed his father and is attempting to steal his farm, he is returning home with legal proof and friends to help him reclaim what is rightfully his. The last thing he expected was to find a ½ drowned spit fire of a woman in need of his assistance.

With a group of Civil War survivors in tow, Luke and Ruthie (Rosie) make plans to help a beaten wife and recover the Stone farm. What Luke didn’t expect was to be swept away by his “Rosie”.

Swept Away was a completely sweet and tender romance with purely vile villians. A wonderful adventure with fantastic characters, this wholesome story will touch your heart and leave you wanting more. Mary Connealy incorporated the savagery of the wild west with the faith and prayer of a believer to do what was right when it isn’t the easiest path. Marvelous Christian Romance! I look forward to the next book in this series.
