Ginny Aiken in her new book, “She Shall Be Praised book coverShe Shall Be Praised” Book Three in the A Women of Hope series published by FaithWords brings us into the life of Emma Crowell.

From the back cover:  She Shall Be Praised.

When socialite Emma Crowell stops the carriage on the way to Portland to ‘exercise’ her new puppy, the last thing she expects is to be left behind in decidedly unsuitable attire, let alone kidnapped. Fortunately, she is soon found by local rancher Peter Lowery. Unfortunately, he has no intention of abandoning his livelihood to take her back to civilization until the fall. He will, however, provide food, shelter and safety, and in return he expects Emma to earn her keep.
Emma is surprised to find she enjoys the challenges of life at the cabin and feels drawn to Peter and his young son Robby. But though willing to learn, no matter how she tries, she never seems to live up to expectations. As Emma seeks God’s guidance and aspires to the picture of womanhood shown in the 31st chapter of Proverbs, Peter comes to realize that he may be underestimating the strength and character behind this woman’s beauty.

Emma is pampered, protected and very shallow. That does not make her a Proverbs 31 woman. However after being deserted in Oregon and then kidnapped she is rescued by Peter and taken back to his ranch. However before the outside world can learn that she is alright she will have to endure not only the Oregon winter but have to work every day. Emma never had anyone to need her or her help. Because the need is great she slowly abandons the person that she was and blossoms into a new maturity. She becomes reliable and dependable, aspects of the Proverbs 31 woman. I think Ginny Aiken did a wonderful job bringing a concept to real life. Ms. Aiken has also done a marvelous job of bringing the Biblical ideal to a Western setting and to the lives of her characters so that we see it played out in their lives. Then we can see how it can play out in our lives as well. Emma, Peter and the other characters play out so well on the pages you would think you had known them all your life.  “She Shall Be Praised” is a great read that I was sorry to see come to an end.  I am so looking forward to more in this series from Ms. Aiken.
