Ruth Kyserabout this book: "Two Hearts" is a Christian story about a young woman who has decided to remain single.
When Victoria Hendricks arrives at the Circle Bar T Ranch in the Hill Country of Texas, she's excited at the prospect of relaxing and hopefully, being able to get her mo-jo back so she can complete her latest marketing project. She's more concerned about that than having a good time.
It's a beautiful country with its grassy pasturelands and rolling hills—and the ranch has a reputation for being a pleasant place to visit.
Instead of things going smoothly, however, she discovers that the cabin that was supposed to be reserved for her was given to someone else. To make things even worse, the two weeks she's at the ranch is scheduled as a marriage retreat called Two Hearts, and she's the only single guest in attendance.
Then she meets Reed Montgomery, a tall, good-looking Texan, who just happens to be the owner of the Circle Bar T and the man in charge of solving Tory's housing dilemma. He's determined to make things right for Tory and even provides a special family cabin, so she has someplace to stay. Even though Reed acts like a Christian, Tory senses right away that things aren't right with Reed and his relationship with God.
It also doesn't take her long to find out Reed is a confirmed bachelor, with no plans to change his status. That's fine with Tory, as she has also made the decision to stay single. And she knows it's much more important that Reed get his life right with God than have a romantic relationship with her. Tory and Reed quickly become friends, but both wonder if God could have brought the two of them together for another reason. Will friendship win out in the end, or will God lead them to something more?
I wrote this book after doing some research on the Hill Country of Texas. I quickly fell in love with the area and knew that was where I wanted this next book to take place. What's better than visiting a fictional dude/guest ranch in the hills of Texas?
As for the topic of marriage, in today's world, marriage seems to be an afterthought instead of the lifelong commitment God meant it to be. That is why I used singleness/marriage as the basis of Reed's and Tory's struggle--using scripture as a roadmap of what a Godly marriage should look like. I hope my readers will be encouraged in their own lives--whether single or married--to continue on the path God has given them
This book was started at the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic. As most of my author friends can tell you, it was a difficult time to write. For some reason, it was hard to stay focused on a project for more than a few minutes, so it's a miracle this book even came to be! I'm thankful I didn't give up on it, though, as I think (and hope) that it will be an enjoyable book for my readers.
