    Wow! Molly Noble Bull knows how to get and keep her readers engaged from page one. Just when I'd think I knew what might happen next, she'd throw in another twist. Amazing and yet believable because the characters are so real. Wow! Molly Noble Bull knows how to get and keep her readers engaged from page one.

Add to this a sizable ranch to run and Maggie has about all the responsibility she can handle placed squarely on her shoulders.

Add to this a sizable ranch to run and Maggie has about all the responsibility she can handle placed squarely on her shoulders. When Maggie and Sarah find a stranger who has been shot on their property, they ignore propriety and take him home to care for him. A search of his belongings identifies him as Alex Lancaster but when he wakes up his missing memory makes it impossible to confirm that identification. Alex wakes in a strange bedroom with no idea of who he is or how he got there. The only thing he is sure of is that the beautiful woman caring for him is surely an angel. The more time he spends with her, the more captivated he becomes. If he could only remember where he came from or why he was on the Gallagher spread or why anyone would have had reason to shoot him… Can Maggie and Alex solve the mystery of who Alex is before someone finishes the job they started? Will they be able to explore their feelings for one another if he doesn’t know his own past? “When the Cowboy Rides Away” by Molly Noble Bull reminded me often of the biblical story of Jacob. Although Alex wasn’t nearly as conniving as I always thought Jacob was he did get into hot water as a result of his bad choices. At one point he even compares himself to Jacob. I loved how his honor shone through, even when he had no reason to believe he was an honorable man. Maggie is a strong woman with a deep faith. Her only flaw (that I could see) was her inability to see Roger’s ulterior motives. If you like historical western romances, pick this one up. It’s a sweet story with a major twist at the end. Don’t miss it! I received a copy of this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.

Maggie Gallagher and her younger sister, Sarah, are out for a ride and come across a handsome cowboy who was shot and seriously wounded near her home.

Maggie Gallagher and her younger sister, Sarah, are out for a ride and come across a handsome cowboy who was shot and seriously wounded near her home. Maggie already has her hands full—running her ranch and caring for her 10-year-old sister and orphaned 2-year-old nephew—she is a kind-hearted Christian woman so she takes him to her home and nurses him back to health. She has no idea the impact this stranger will have on her life and those she loves. Alex Lancaster opens his eyes and doesn't know where he is, how he got there or even his name. Who is this “guardian angel” nursing him and where was he? Will he ever remember who he is and the secret that brought him in search for Maggie? This historical story set in Texas near the Mexican border of 1880's is like a western movie complete with a cowboy—of course, a family struggling to keep her ranch going, mystery, Christian values and strong faith in the Lord, deception and betrayal, shocking secrets revealed, evil practices and intentions, forgiveness, new beginnings and love. All woven into a heartwarming story that is hard to put down. Molly Noble Bull includes historical notes at the beginning of the story which I found interesting. For literature programs, a teacher & student guide is available to use in a home school setting (or classroom). ~I received a PDF copy of this book from TBCN for my honest review~

    At times there are stories that come along and they are like taking a nice long bubble bath on a stressful day. When The Cowboy Rides Away was my bubble bath and I really enjoyed it.

Alex Lancaster was a true gentleman, he had amazing personality and the way embraced his circumstances could teach us all a lesson about resting and trusting in Christ. Maggie Gallagher was too trusting at times and it was very frustrating, but her determination to take care of her sister, nephew and ranch was what help her character to shine. I think the open and honest conversations Alex and Maggie had helped build their friendship and they love they had for each other. There are not too many romance books that take the time to build a relationship through friendship. I will admit that I wish there was a little bit more romance, but once you read the story you will definitely understand why everything happen as it did. Molly Noble Bull, will Sarah get her own story? I highly recommend this book, it will be well worth your time.

    If you like western romances, this is the book for you. Set on a South Texas Ranch in 1880, When the Cowboy Rides Away is also Christian fiction with a bit of suspense. The heroine is raising a younger sister and nephew as well as running the family ranch. The cowboy is shot and has amnesia. It takes a while to figure out all the details but I did put it together a bit before he regained full memory. I really enjoyed this story and recommend it to anyone who likes this genre.

Will his memory ever come back? Will his true identity is revealed, will those around him be in danger? It's time to sit back, put your boots up and get ready for a fascinating story filled with witchcraft, bank robberies, attempted murder and a bit of romance. The story reminds me of a John Wayne movie, where the cowboy is mysterious and the woman is feisty and stubborn. This combination makes for an adventure that is unpredictable and at times suspenseful . I was intrigued by the part the author wrote about the way they maked graves . Most people were poor and the only way they could mark a grave was to put chips of glass on the grave. When the sunlight caught the glass it would be a cascade of brilliant colors and show where the grave was. What a beautiful way to describe a tribute to a loved one. I enjoyed the storyline and the feel of a great western adventure. It is a intriguing book with twists and surprises that will have readers glued to the book.

After Maggie Gallagher's parents and her sister die within a short period of time of each other she finds herself in charge of her parents huge ranch and raising her younger sister and nephew. Maggie in her early twenties has a strong and deep faith, but tends to be too trusting of others as she sees good in everyone until she learns better. Who she can and can't trust. One day Maggie and her sister Sarah are out riding and find a wounded cowboy Alex Lancaster and they take him back to her ranch to nurse him back to health. When he finally wakes up he does not have any idea who he is or how he got to this ranch with a beautiful woman caring for him. The more time he spends in Maggie's care the more he has feelings for her. But can there be a relationship if he does not know who he is? A heartwarming story of romance and love with some suspense, twists and turn, christian values and so much more I look forward to reading more of Molly Noble Bull's books and I highly recommend this one.

Being a Christian, Maggie knows that she must bring him home despite her misgivings. But who is this man? Why was he on her land? Alex Lancaster wakes in a strange bed after being shot. He does not remember who or why he is here. With his growing attraction for Maggie, Alex is searching for answers. Why would someone want to shoot him? Will he remember his name and purpose in time? Once he remembers, will he bring more heartache or trouble for Maggie? This story shows that the author truly understood the times back in the 1800's. With the sweet romance plus all of the twists and turns, I was not able to stop reading. I wanted to see what would happen next. Included was a study guide which will be very helpful to use when I have my daughters read this story. We homeschool so it is nice to have a study guide to go with the book.

    "When the Cowboy Rides Away" is a romantic western set in Texas that is faithful to historic detail and relates an authentic view of life on a ranch. Maggie had her hands full with a ranch to run, a younger sister and an orphaned nephew to raise. It didn't help things when she found an injured cowboy nearby who can't remember much of anything by Maggie's compassion compelled her to help him recover. Naturally a bit of romance develops along the way but plenty of drama, mystery, and surprises are "When the Cowboy Rides Away" is a romantic western set in Texas that is faithful to historic detail and relates an authentic view of life on a ranch.

    I enjoyed this story set on a south Texas ranch in the late 1800s. Maggie and Alex are Christians, and their lives reflect their faith, even when Alex doesn't remember who he is or what he was doing that led to his being shot. The romance developed as they got to know each other, but they were careful not to act on their feelings until they knew for certain that Alex wasn't married. The solution to the mystery of Alex's background comes with a surprising twist, and the ending is satisfying. I rece I enjoyed this story set on a south Texas ranch in the late 1800s.

    Alex has a rough time of it, from being married by a fake (bank robbing) pastor to losing his memory while on his way to he can't remember where.
