Book Review: A Place to Belong by Lauraine Snelling

Cassie Lockwood is the victim of a crime and she is called to court to testify as to what happened. She also enjoys being a part of Wild West shows. This seems to be different about her than most other females in her town. She was proposed to by Lucas Engstrom and is not totally sure if she should marry him not. She doesn’t know if she loves him, and is not sure if it’s God’s will for them to marry. She prays for a closed door if the relationship isn't right and God shows her whether the door is closed or not, just not in the way that she thinks it could happen.

At one point Lucas disappears, leaving everybody in shock as to why he would leave so quickly. I can understand why he might have done that; because when a person is stressed or doesn’t know what to do they might run away. A man named Ransom is another character in the story that had kind of an interesting part to me. He seemed to have a quiet personality and that was often taken as dislike towards at least one person in the story. His thoughts started coming out though and I am glad that he felt comfortable enough around the people in his life to bring those thoughts out.

This is the first book by Lauraine Snelling I have read and I hope to read more books she has authored. I love the country settings that seem to be a part of her books. 

I received this book free from Bethany House for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
