Item description for In His Arms (Coming To America (Zondervan)) by Robin Lee Hatcher...

Facing a difficult new life in 1898 America as a single mother when her first husband is killed, Irish woman Mary Malone has a dangerous altercation with an employer before falling in love with the handsome sheriff of a small Idaho town. Original.

Publishers Description

Dear Inga, I m thinking it is not good for my baby and me to stay much longer in Whistle Creek, Idaho. The sheriff is showing altogether too much interest. I suppose I should feel flattered, for Carson Barclay is not only strikingly handsome, but a man of character and faith who has shown Keary and me considerable kindness. But I m afraid his affections are ones I cannot return. The secret I bear makes a future with him impossible. Yet Inga, when Sheriff Barclay is near, it s everything in my Irish heart that wishes otherwise. Your friend, Mary Emeline Malone Idaho: mountainous, rugged. Men go there to find their fortunes in the silver mines and lose their pasts. But as Mary Malone discovers, sometimes the past is not so easily shaken. It will take a good man s strong, persistent love to penetrate the young immigrant s defenses and disarm the secret that makes a hostage of her heart. In His Arms is Book Three in the Coming to America series about women who come to America to start new lives. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s, these novels by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher craft intense chemistry and conflict between the characters, lit by a glowing faith and humanity that will win your heart. Look for other books in the series at your favorite Christian bookstore."

Reviews - What do customers think about In His Arms (Coming To America (Zondervan))?

Immoral  Jan 26, 2007
As a reader of Christian Fiction I found this book to have immoral, sexual content. I had stop reading it.
No struggle at all  Jul 10, 2006
I couldn't disagree more with the reader who said she struggled to finish and finally gave up. When I finished this book I immediately went to this site to order the other two books in the series. I wanted more of Hatcher. She gave me what I always look for in a novel. Good people who are human and struggle with the same types of sins that I do and evil people who either repent or pay the price.
In His Arms  Mar 16, 2006
I read only Christian novels and this is an excellent example. I look forward to more books by Robin Lee Hatcher. She's great.
Struggled to finish it, and didn't succeed  Feb 8, 2006
I picked up this book because it had Robin Lee Hatcher's name on it. I'd been very impressed by her story in Leisure Books "A Frontier Christmas" romance anthology, so I thought I would give her full-length novels a try. Please note that this review is for the original mass market paperback printing by Harper Collins in 1998, and not for the revised inspirational romance edition.

While the plot of this book was fairly interesting, my problem was with the characters. They felt very flat. Mary is a loving mother who would do anything for her son. She has fallen on hard times, and is running from an incident in her past that could ruin her life. Carson a tortured man who is trying to get past the hurt he suffered as the unwanted child of a prostitute. This could have been interesting, except that the author never probed the characters any deeper than these initial descriptions. I wanted to know what really made them tick. I wanted to know why they should fall in love with each other. The author didn't show me.

After the interesting beginning, the plot began to slow down until it was dragging. I had to keep bargaining with myself to keep reading this. I kept saying, 'well, I'll just read until page 100 and see if it picks up'. Then 'I'll just read until page 150 and see if it picks up then'. Then 'I'll just read until page 200' etc, etc. A good book shouldn't made a reader do this. A good book should have you zooming through it so fast that you're surprised (and sad) that it's over already.

I finally gave up on this, wanting to move on to something better. It seems that this author can write excellent novellas, but not entertaining full-length novels. This is the second of her full-length novels that I've tried, and as both were disappointing, I don't think that there will be a third.
A sweet story  Aug 23, 2004
Mary Emeline Malone is looking for everyone else is seeking - love, family and a place to call home. When in Ireland she gave her heart and body to a man who said that he loved her and promised to send for her once he got settled in America with a job. They were to be married and live happily ever-after but the situation changed when Mary discovered that she was pregnant and couldn't wait to hear from him. She set off for America on her own to search for her to-be-husband only to discover once she arrived that he had already married another and had died in a miner's accident. Now Mary is left in New York to raise her baby boy on her own. But when an employer makes advances towards her with plans to make her his mistress, Mary does the only thing she knows to do and that is defend herself from him by hitting him on the head one afternoon when interrupted from cleaning in his study. Now she fears going to jail for murder and rushes to get her baby and head get out-of-town on the next train. While on the train, she meets up with a Madame who owns a saloon in Whistle Creek, Idaho but is dying of cancer. Trusting her instincts, Mary is offered a place to live and a job as bookkeeper at the saloon and Mary agrees. The first person Mary sees when she gets off the train is Sheriff Carson Barclay of Whistle Creek and Mary realizes that she is going to be running from the law the rest of her life. She has to avoid the sheriff or possibly be arrested for murder. Sheriff Carson Barclay has nothing for the saloon/whore house and "sees red" when he realizes that the beautiful woman with a son thats getting off the train is a new "girl" for the madame. But no matter how hard he tries to stay away- Carson is drawn to her only to lose his heart to a head strong woman with an Irish lilt and a past that is soon to catch up with her.

It was my first RLH book to read and is a good one though a little slow at times. The characters came to life for me and I really liked Mary and Carson but I also enjoyed the sub-characters as well. Yes, its a good story and one I would recommend it to read.
