About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

A Steadfast Companion (K-9 Companions #12) by Myra Johnson

A Steadfast Companion

Offering a helping hand…

Could give him everything he needs.

Fighting his way back from a troubled past, handyman Angus “Witt” Wittenbauer needs refuge. When dog sanctuary owner Maddie McNeill needs someone to fix her kennel’s roof, it seems like the answer to his prayers, especially when he’s reunited with his long-lost dog, Ranger. His growing friendship with Maddie hints at the promise of something more, but will Witt ever feel deserving of love again? 

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.


I'm so happy to discover this 'new to me' author! Myra Johnson shares a heartwarming story of two people who've experienced hard knocks and tremendous hurts but have still managed to endure. I loved the strong love and commitment that Maddie McNeill offers the unwanted dogs in her care, and Witt Wittenbaurer is truly an overcomer! Learning his backstory made him even more endearing and I kept rooting for someone to recognize his true worth. Can Maddie's wounded heart find healing from this kind, generous man? Will Witt's Christian witness help restore the faith she once had?

If you enjoy lovable dogs, second chances, midlife romance, and the joy that comes from forgiveness and redemption, grab a copy of A Steadfast Companion. I loved this contemporary Christian romance and I'll be searching for more books by this author!

I received a complimentary copy from the author. I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars 


Native Texan Myra Johnson writes emotionally gripping stories about love, life, and faith. Myra is a three-time Maggie Awards finalist, two-time finalist for the prestigious ACFW Carol Awards, winner of Christian Retailing’s Best for historical fiction, and winner in the Inspirational category of the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Awards.

After living five years in Oklahoma, then eight years in the beautiful Carolinas, Myra and her husband are thrilled to be back in the Lone Star State enjoying wildflowers, Tex-Mex, and real Texas barbecue! The Johnsons share their home with two very pampered rescue dogs who don’t always understand the meaning of “Mom’s trying to write.” They’ve also inherited the cute little cat (complete with attitude) their daughter and family had to leave behind when they moved overseas.

Awards of note: When the Clouds Roll By, Till We Meet Again, Book 1 (Abingdon Press 2013), won the historical fiction category of the 2014 Christian Retailing's Best Award. Autumn Rains (Heartsong Presents 2009), won the 2005 RWA Golden Heart for Best Inspirational Romance Manuscript.

Myra’s writing career was launched in 1985 when she sold her first short story while taking a course through the Institute of Children’s Literature. Myra later joined the ICL staff as a magazine writing instructor, teaching hundreds of students the fundamentals of story and article structure, plotting, character development, and market analysis. She now writes full-time and is active in her church as well as local and national writers groups.

Myra and her husband have been married since 1972. The Johnsons have two married daughters and seven grandchildren.
