Song of the Meadowlark by Sherri Wilson Johnson

Sherri Wilson Johnson is a writer and speaker who loves to make people laugh and forget their troubles. She loves Jesus and hopes to inspire and encourage others because life is tough and can seem hopeless without God! She is a former homeschooling mom and a graduate from the two-year Christian Writers Guild course. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.

She lives in Georgia with her husband and two children. Sherri is a bird-watcher, loves the ocean, dolphins, roller coasters, tigers, ice cream, her family and her Chihuahua, who faithfully sits by her side every day when she writes. She longs to do something exciting like sky diving one day.


From the book's back cover:
When trusting others leads only to pain, and loving ends only in loss, what will it take to restore hope again?
Cora Buchanan’s car breaks down while on a road trip, leaving her stranded in a small Georgia town. While Cora stays at a ranch, little Susie O’Reilly unexpectedly fills a void in her heart. Widower Rex, Susie’s rugged cowboy father, stands in Cora’s way. The news reports of missing and murdered women don’t help her comfort level. Cora has no idea how close to home the crimes will hit…or how the song of the meadowlark will impact her future.
From Jo:
Cora Buchanan leaves Lake Murray, South Carolina a year after her husband walks out and never returned. Cora plans to go to Florida to make amends with her estranged parents who disapproved of her marriage three years ago. She never reaches Florida because of car trouble and loving grandparents who hire her to watch after Susie, their granddaughter. Susie’s daddy, a widower, runs the family ranch, giving almost no time to his daughter. Once at the ranch Cora bonds with Susie but Rex either avoids Cora or speaks harshly around her. Both Cora and Rex carry baggage from their former lives, which they choose not to reveal to one another. An attraction develops but neither will admit it and, after all, Cora is still a married woman. Sherri Johnson describes her settings and the reader feels as if she is there in the moment. All the characters but one is strong and memorable, and the reader won’t know until the last pages which is the bad guy.
