WIND IN THE WIRES by JANET CHESTER BLY - GIVEAWAY OPPORTUNITY (4) copies

Wind in the Wires, Book 1, A Trails of Reba Cahill Novel 
About the Author: Janet Chester Bly
is a city girl with a country heart. She doesn't corral horses or mow her own lawn. “I’m no womba woman,” she says. But she followed her husband award-winning western author Stephen Bly to the Idaho mountain top village of Winchester to write books and minister to a small church. When she lost him, she stayed. She manages the online Bly Books bookstore, rakes lots of Ponderosa pine needles and cones, and survives the long winter snows.

Janet Chester Bly is the widow of award-winning western author Stephen Bly. Together they authored and co-authored 120 fiction and nonfiction books. She and her three sons finished Stephen’s last novel for him, Stuart Brannon’s Final Shot, a Selah Award Finalist. The family’s story is told on her website blog: http://www.blybooks.com/. Wind in the Wires is Janet’s first solo adult novel, a contemporary western mystery, a road adventure with a touch of romance. It’s Cowgirl Lit. Reader's Guide for Group Discussion included.

ABOUT BOOK: It’s 1991. Reba Cahill loves ranching with Grandma Pearl in north central Idaho. But there’s a lot of work and only two of them. Reba decides she needs a husband to help her run the ranch. But she finds few prospects in the small town of Road’s End.

But Reba is also missing something else: her mother. Deserted by her at three-years-old and never knowing her dad, she feels a sense of longing and loss. And bitterness.

When elderly, quirky Road’s End citizen Maidie Fortress dies, Uncle Seth presents Reba Cahill with an expensive piece of jewelry that turns Reba’s world upside down and leads her down unexpected paths and toward unsuspected admirers. Will the facts also ruin all hope for romance?

Excerpt: Seth reached into his pocket and handed her a slip of paper.
Keep it, Reba was tempted to scream. She wanted nothing to do with her mother. No matter what, she wouldn’t change her mind. She refused to take a slow boat to anywhere. Or a snail’s pace Model T car trip to the desert. She gaped at the folded note, not much larger than a man’s thumb, as though torn from a scratch pad. Whatever the words, they could not begin to make up for years of silence. Of abandonment. Why bother? Why deepen the wound?

Author mentor Rachel Hauck said of Wind in the Wires: “Love your voice! I love the setting...It's a great story!”

  1. Westerns show the rugged cowboys. Simpler times. My favorite cowboy movie is Rio Bravo. I loved the song fest in the movie, especially My Rifle My Pony and Me.

    The most unusual trip I have ever taken is to the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL. It was so eye-opening and only unusual because I had never been there before...but it was a great trip!

  6. One of my sisters and I did discover a well hidden family secret after our Momma died. Momma kept every letter she ever received and as we were going through all of her things that Poppa did not have a need for, we came across some letters written by someone we had not heard of. He was writing to Momma because he said he was the son of Momma's brother from his first marriage. He wanted to meet family and asked if he could come see her. She evidently declined to open this door her brother had closed (saying the child was not his). As soon as we got back to our respective home, we let the other siblings know about this secret. We ultimately contacted him and have enjoyed an awesome relationship getting to know him. We are so blessed to have this opportunity to add to our family and he feels validated as one of us. A win-win all the way around! Blessings to all who have discovered a secret and had an opportunity to right a wrong in some way. csthankful(at)midrivers (dot com

  10. I like to watch westerns because as a child i grew up wanting to live there on a ranch and have my own horse (to young to realize as a city girl that we have horses here in the east to ) I watched all the old westerns Gun Smoke, Rawhide,
    Roy Rodgers and Dale Evans, my favorite hero was Annie Oakley !
    My favorite western is "Lonesome Dove" because i think it showed how hard it was to settle in the west and the grit it took to do it.
    thank you

  11. I was recently working on some family history for both my husband & me. I found that on both sides of our families, our maternal grandmothers were sent to live with extended families because of poverty. They both were very much overcomers in their lives. I never would have guessed either of them held such pain. But knowing now, I could sense a spirit of abandonment in their lives that manifested in very different ways.
