Item description for Texas Angel by Judith Pella...

From bestselling author Judith Pella comes the remarkable tale of two vastly different lives colliding in the Texas wilderness and their journey to the place of deliverance. Elise Toussaint Hearne thought her devastating secret would be safe--after all, her dark hair and tanned complexion merely hints at French ancestry, and her infant daughter, Hannah, is as fair as her father. But that did little to save her after the revelation that Elise's deceased mother was one-quarter African and a runaway slave. All of her descendants are now the property of Maurice Thomson, a cruel and depraved man eager to recover his lost goods. Disowned and shamed by the Hearne family, Elise and her child find themlelves slaves, traveling to the wild frontier of Texas. Benjamin Sinclair is a fiery evangelist newly arrived from Boson, determined to convert the lawless Texans with a strong dose of retribution. When Benjamin and Elise inadvertently meet, their lives intertwine as tragedy befalls them--shattering their fragile existence and forcing them to discover the faith that sustains.

Reviews - What do customers think about Texas Angel?

Real charatcers with depth and growth!  Oct 17, 2005
To be perfectly honest I read this book after reading Charity's review, I couldn't imagine it was accurate. I've read three of Judith Pella's books YEARS ago (two cowboy type in a series with an Indian in the story line and a Russian book) and though skilled as a writer I did not like her books because they were only nominally Christian. This book shows Ms Pella's growth as a believer, it was challenging to me as a believer as well as a very interesting, delightful read. And yes I already ordered the next in the series!! If you like this type of book Stephanie Whitson's Dakota Moon series is very similiar, no prostitute but an Indian girl and a pastor who means well but is initially clueless. Although I prefer Ms Pellas, I'm surprised to say, the Whitson books are also good.
Teaxas Angel?  Oct 13, 2003
No offense, but are all the reviewers of this book blind? This was a BORING book. I could barely get through the first half of the book, it picked up a little bit after that, but not much. One of the main characters, Elise, seemed stupid to me. Trying to escape with a screaming child? Excuse me, but it seems like common sense to shut the child up and then run. I was surprised that the author, Judith Pella, was a bestselling athor. Because this is definitly not one of my favorites. Then I thought maybe this was one of her not so great books, I mean all authors have those. But after reading all of these reviews, I'm not quite sure. The author ended the book too quickly. It was as if she was just trying to tie all the loose ends up, instead of actully thinking it through. Overall, I would NOT recommend thiS book. Don't waste your time on it.
A Great Book!  May 25, 2003
This book combines two worlds that you wouldn't ever expect to come together.

Benjamin Sinclair is a fiery preacher with high opinions of everything. He pulls his small quaint family from the safety of Boston to the wilderness of Texas. His kind wife Elizabeth never wanted to go to Texas but Benjamin dragged her.

Elise Toussaint Hearne thought her secret would never be revealed. Her mother was one quarter African. You couldn't tell that her daughter, Hannah, had any African in her because her complexion is the same as her father's. Elise and Hannah are now property of Maurice Thomson. Elise's husband and his family disown them. And she is shamed by what Maurice makes her do.

When Elise and Benjamin first meet they clash and don't get along. But later they both need each other badly.

It was kind've ironic how they ran into each other but it was a great book! Judith Pella is one of my favorite authors so I guess that's why I like it. If you're a fan of Judith Pella you'll like this book too.
Enjoyable Romance!  Oct 10, 2002
This was probably one of Judith Pella's best books yet. I am looking forward to reading the sequel. I enjoyed watching the transformation of the characters. Each of them went through major personality and attitude changes especially Benjamin. I do recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian romances with substance.
Finally! A Christian romance with meaning!  Feb 26, 2002
I first borrowed "Texas Angel" from the library because the cover was interesting and the back sounded good. Since overall most "Christian romances" have very little Christ and are simply "clean," I wasn't expecting anything very deep. Obviously I'd never before read Judith Pella.

The book views the world through two pairs of eyes: that of a holier-than-thou pastor and a terrified woman sold into slavery and prostitution. My pride told me to put it down, that there couldn't be any good from a book that used a prostitute as its heroine... how dare the author even use such a wretched creature!... but I stuck it out and was glad that I did. I learned a lot about human nature from this book. There's a difference between using something for shock factor and showing truth by it. In the end, the woman was redeemed to Christ, and the pastor, after his desperate fall from his high horse, slowly came back to God through her... a woman he wouldn't even look atýsix months before.

So for those of you, like me, who are repulsed by stories that involve "less-than-holy" heroines, this book may be your turning point. God really used it to open my eyes and show me my own flaws. I hated Benjamin at first, with his high and mighty preaching, but by the end I was genuinely in love with the character. The fall off his high horse was handled well and was utterly painful even for the reader... the book manages to convey so many emotions and lessons in a beautifully wrapped package. It was a very, very good read.
