My review of Saving Hope, Book 1 in the Men of the Texas Ranger Series.

My Review: I just love Margaret Daley's writing style. Not only does she write stories that are poignant, captivating, and romantic, but she tackles tough subjects with a skill that is not easily matched. This story is no exception. Shattered Silence is a gripping story about bullying in it's many forms, domestic abuse, prejudices, and overcoming those things in our lives with the Lord's help.

I loved Liliana's character from the first page. She is a strong-willed, independent woman. She is fiercely protective of her family and her heart. Watching her finally surrender her past and embrace her future was one of the best parts of the story. Cody was another great heroine. Who doesn't love a God-fearing Texas Ranger that's built, loyal, and handsome?

The part of this book I enjoyed the most was the message. Each character has to overcome some aspect of bullying in their lives, whether past or present. Each character has to learn to trust that God will get them through the present bullying and help them escape the memories of their past bullying. By trusting that God will help them, they can learn to trust the good people in their lives and embrace all that's meant for them.

Overall, Margaret Daley has created another touching romance, full of suspense, with a fantastic message. I highly recommend it!
