His Most Tender Touch (The Tender Series, #1) by Tanya Stowe

His Most Tender Touch (The Tender)

Is his faith strong enough to save them both?

Lacy Butler is graced with the gift of healing yet fails to save her mother. Rejecting her gift, God, and society, she's content to live alone high above the mining town of Harperville. But her solitude is shattered when Royce Darnell builds a water flume through the middle of her mountain. With the livelihood of the miners and their families depending on his project, Royce refuses to stop building, no matter how good the reason. Besides, he's convinced God wants Lacy to use her gift for good and not be a recluse afraid of human contact. But first, she must learn to trust, and Lacy doesn't trust anyone, not Royce and especially not God. Soon Royce finds himself in a battle to save the two things he loves the most…Harperville and Lacy.


Great characters, exciting adventure, and a special gift! Does Lacy Butler have a gift for physical healing or was this gift given only to Jesus? Author Tanya Stowe offers an intriguing story about a young girl who feels cursed by her special power and chooses to live away from the world. She knows that she can heal but she blames God for not allowing her to help her own mother. Enter Royce Darnall, a very special person in his own right. He wants to help the people of Harperville and he longs to help Lacy accept the gift that God's given her. Will his Christian witness convince Lacy to turn back to her Heavenly Father?

His Most Tender Touch is set in the High California Sierra in 1861. It's a well-written story filled with historical details, an inspiring faith message, and a tender romance. I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian fiction and I look forward to the next book in The Tender series.

I received a complimentary copy from the author. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Tanya Stowe is a Christian Fiction author with an unexpected edge. She is married to the love of her life, her high school sweetheart. They have four children and twenty-one grandchildren, a true adventure. She fills her books with the unusual…mysteries and exotic travel, even a murder or two. No matter where Tanya takes you…on a trip to foreign lands or a suspenseful journey packed with danger…be prepared for the extraordinary.
