In Terry Burns' new novel, Saint's Roost , available from Treble Heart Books, a young pastor's widow heads out into the Wild West to turn heathens into believers. Along the way she meets colorful characters, and learns invaluable lessons by the very folk she sought to teach.
Saint's Roost is a slow-paced, sweet novel set in America's uncivilized frontier days. Cowboys and Indians, drunkards and prostitutes each have an opportunity to display God's grace, and the entire town of Saint's Roost, founded on Christian values, have hard lessons to learn about just what it means to fully live in Christ's love.

I enjoyed this book. I especially liked the way Terry Burns took some very modern/ancient concepts and couched them in the broad tones of the midwestern cowboy. Check it out at Treble Heart Books. I hope you pick up Saint's Roost if only for the glimpse into our American past.
