STORY-LINE THE SHEPHERD’S DAUGHTER:
The Shepherd’s Daughter’s, a clean sweet romance, takes place in 1800’s Dry Bayou, Texas. Willem Ducharme aka Billy and Raychelle, aka Ray, have been friends since they were small children. Ray’s family came to Texas to manage the Ducharme sheep enterprise. Thick as thieves, they are seldom apart. As time passes, Ray realizes her feelings turn into adult love for her best friend. Then her world falls apart. The Ducharmes have ordered Billy a bride from back East.
The picture of perfection, Rebecca DuCastille’s is everything Ray’s not. Beautiful, poised, charming, Rebecca is a lady while Ray is the shepherd’s daughter. Wild haired, hard-working, an unladylike tomboy, and opinionated, Ray’s determined she will not go down gently; she will fight for Billy’s love. How far is Ray willing to go to get Billy to choose her for his wife? Will Rebecca win Billy’s heart or will perfect Rebecca win the day? Is romance in the air? My reviews for western romance novel The Shepherd’s Daughter follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Author Jackson d’Lynne writing as Lynn Winchester crafted a sweet clean story filled with emotion and believable realistic characters. I could feel Ray’s insecurity and sadness, as well as, her wonder when she realized her feelings for Billy. Winchester’s story-telling talent invest the reader in the characters and story-line. As Billy and Ray come to realize their feelings, the reader is right there. Billy, an obedient son, has always followed his parents wishes, especially in pleasing his mother; will he follow their wishes in the most important decision of his life? Winchester kept the suspense at high pitch as the reader follows the story to its conclusion.
The pacing of the story was in line with the length of the book and the plot holds the reader’s attention from the first page to last. A sweet easy read, which does not contain sex or vulgar language, Winchester’s talent alone sells the story.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for western romance novel The Shepherd’s Daughter, I found a sweet clean romance perfect for an afternoon of reading enjoyment. Easy to read and with a story which appeals to the reader’s heart, I read this book straight through.
