STORY-LINE DEVIL OUT OF TEXAS By ROGER RAFFEE:

Author Roger Raffee‘s Devil Out Of Texas, taken from his family history, is an epic story of law, prejudice, and revolution.  With parts of the story true and part from Raffee’s vivid imagination, it’s mostly fiction.  The parts detailing his Grandfather Abe’s telling of the story and his famous friends are true.  For entertainment purposes, Raffee enlarged upon the story told to him in 1973.

Aaron Raffee, Jewish and son of a talented doctor, at a young age decided he would become a Texas Ranger.  Exposed to the Rangers by his Texas Ranger Doctor Father, Aaron’s determined to become the first Jewish Texas Ranger.  At 18 Aaron becomes a Texas Ranger;  so begins a life of law keeping, facing prejudice as a Jew, prejudice for the Mexicans, and finally at all cost seeking justice for all.  Intertwined into the story of Aaron, Rafee‘s grandfather will reveal his part in the Hollywood movie industry.

Come along with Roger Raffee as he detailed his great grandfathers journey and fame through his grandfather.  My historical western book reviews of Devil Out Of Texas follow.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:

A Texas Christmas by by Cecil, Dooley, Franklin, Griffin, Hake, Y’Barbo

Book Review

The book has 6 of the sweetest, wonderful, and clean, in some cases hilarious, romances I have ever read.

The first book Here Cooks the Bride by Cathy Marie Hake takes place in 1879; a hilarious romance between a young woman Lacey, and the local blacksmith Jeff, in Cut Corners, a small town in Texas. She came to a texas christmastown to help her sick aunt, who is a miserable cook, with her diner. Between every swain in town wanting to marry her for her cooking, the 4 old men, retired Texas Rangers,  that founded the town plotting to keep her in town to cook at the diner, and Jeff teaching her to make real Texas chili I laughed and laughed. This was a treat to read.  Watching Jeff and Lacey fall in love was a joy. This was a clean Christian read with strong Christian values.

The 2nd book A Christmas Chronicle by Pamela Griffin takes place in Cut Corners, Texas again in 1881. The four Meddin’ Old Men are at it again, this time trying to marry off Stone’s nephew Travis to Vivian who is clumsy and awkward.  Travis
