Description

"Coble is a great writer, she knows what readers want and she does not disappoint."—Romantic Times

Lucy Marsh's worldly resources are running out, but she's fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father's recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Texas where her new husband is surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to care for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he'd marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate finds he'd give anything to protect Lucy and the children he's grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.

Blue Moon Promise is a story of hope, romance, and suspense . . . immersing the reader in a rich historical tale set under Texas stars.

Reading Guides

Reading Group Guide

  1. One of the first things we try to do as Christians is to examine the idea of self-sacrifice. It goes against our nature as humans to put someone else above ourselves. Why do you think Lucy was good at this? Is it something innate, or was it something she learned?
     
  2. Did you identify with Lucy's insecurity? Why or why not?
     
  3. What are ways we try to prove our self-worth to ourselves and to others? Where is our true self-worth found?
     
  4. All families face strife from time to time, just as Nate and Roger did. What are some ways to handle strife in a biblical way?
     
  5. Nate was hurt when he realized Lucy didn't trust him enough to bring her worries to him. Is deceit ever warranted?
     
  6. The Bible talks quite a lot about money and how an unhealthy attachment to it can affect our lives. Greed can be more than just the desire for money. What other desires can we humans be greedy for?
     
  7. Did you identify with Lucy's desire to be a blessing to her husband? Why or why not?
     
  8. Lucy's compulsion for control was an illustration of what I've been going through myself. How about you? Are you able to turn things over to God, or do you continually try to fix things?
