McKenzie Book One By Penny Zeller

One of my favorite things to do is read. I generally stick to non-fiction books, but the opportunity came to review the first book in a Christian Historical Romance Series. I really like history, but usually steer away from romance type books because they don’t support marriage and are usually a bit to graphic for me.
Written by a Christian author I was open to the possibility of this book, especially because I used to really enjoy reading Janette Oak’s books with similar themes.
The story drew me in fairly quickly. I like historical fiction, this book is set in 1881, and it sets the stage well. The characters were believable and likable. The premise of the book is that the main character becomes a mail-order bride so that she can be closer to her sister. She sacrifices a lot of freedom to be with her sister, who very much needs her. In classic romance style, you can see the relationship with her husband grow from one of awkwardness to one of respect and love. The fun part about this book for me was to watch the relationship really blossom. It was a story that I enjoyed reading and I would like to see where the rest of the story goes.
Overall it was a good read and I enjoyed it. It was a great distraction from my usual genre.

About The Author
Penny Zeller began writing after a serious injury in a car accident.  She was stuck at home for months in pain and not able to do very much and so she turned to prayer.  It is from this she believes that the characters and the world just started to form.
