    Age Appropriate For: 15 and up for mild romanceBest for Ages: 15 and upI have loved the first two books in this series. I had the privilege of meeting Martha Rogers a few years ago and her faith shines not only in her books but in her life. I was excited when I found a discounted copy of this book to read.I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed in this story. I liked Becky but between books she became an annoying know-it-all. However, Becky got a lot of silly ideas stuck in her head. That would have been okay, but the change in her fell a little flat. As the other two books in this series were very powerful that was disappointing.Geoff was a confusing character and he made me dizzy. Even at the end of the book I had no idea what kind of guy he was. As he is a big part of the story, this also made for a disappointing aspect of the story.Rob was the best character. He loves Becky and doesn’t give up on her. With that says, he also doesn’t stand on his principles. Not giving up on someone should never means ignoring your values.The setting was great. Being back in Barton Springs and seeing Lucy, Dove, and the rest was great. I felt so at home and cozy. While most of the book was disappointing, just being back in the setting I love was worth it.While not my favorite, if you love the first two books in the series, you ought to read this one.

    We first met Becky Haynes in Becoming Lucy and she's grown up. Returning from Wellesley College, she comes home with a new name, Rebecca, and new attitudes. Set on becoming a writer, she begins working for the town newspaper. Rob has become a lawyer and has patiently waited for Becky to return home. The Rebecca who steps off the train is sophisticated and opinionated. She's a budding suffragette and tenacious in her desire for all women to have the right to vote.Geoff has come to Barton Creek under the guise of purchasing cattle, but he is also scoping out the oil prospects. Rob is determined to find out his real intentions towards Becky, as well as Barton Creek.All your favorite characters from Becoming Lucy and Morning for Dove return and I think that Martha Rogers just gets better. I liked, but didn't love Becoming Lucy and I'm so glad I didn't let that deter me from reading the rest of this series. Becky is a delightful character and this is simply an enjoyable book. I'm looking forward to book four, Caroline's Choice.

    I liked Becky but did not get to know enough about her. I learned more about other characters and see the series continuing.I loved the town and the people who live there. I don't think fist pumping would have happened in the early 1900's, do you?The writing was far from the mark.... I needed more depth. I wanted to admire Becky and tried. If I had gotten to know her better I might have bought the story and raved.There were a few surprises and they needed more information too. I can only give this a 2 star rating and it could have been a 4 star with more information about the main character and story development.

    Finding Becky is the 3rd book in the Winds Across The Praire series, but can easily be read as a stand alone book! I had no problems jumping right into this story.When Rebecca Haynes returns home to Barton Creek after spending four years back east procuring a degree in jounalism, her friends notice that she has changed. First off they had always called her Becky but she informs them she wants to be called Rebecca, she also comes off much more independant and confident, but the biggest change they seem to notice is the fact that her faith in God has changed. She seems to have grown away from the faith she had grown up with, she now believes that people make their own choices and therefore decide their own fate. That God is only there if things go wrong. While back east she also became immersed in womans suffrage movement. She hopes that the job that she has landed with the Barton Creek Cronicle will allow her to write articles that might further help the womens movement.Rob Frankston has loved Becky since they were 13 years old, she has never shown more than a friendly interest in him, but he has always been determined that they might marry someday. He becomes jealous of Geoff, a man that came to town on the same train Becky did. Geoff says he is there to purchase cattle but Rob is sure there is more to his story. Can Rob help Becky find her faith, and perhaps win her heart?Historical Christian Romance Fiction is one of my favorite genre's to read, and Martha Rogers writing is perfect. This was my first opprotunity to read her writing and now I want to read everything she has written. She writes in such a way that her characters personalities just jump off of the page, I also enjoyed the romantic tension between the main characters.I also loved the secondary characters in the book and can't wait to read Caroline's Choice the next book in this series, which is due out Jan 14th 2011.

    First reviewed here: http://overweight-bookshelf.blogspot....The story centers around Becky's quest to start a women's suffrage movement in Barton Creek and her struggle to understand that God is more than just a passing visitor in life. Becky returns from college with an arrogance that has her believe that she needs to enlighten women and show them that they need to draw their strength only from themselves. I like that Martha Rogers places a pivotal moment in women's history at the forefront of this novel, but I felt it could have used a little more development aside from Becky's sometimes condescending and dismissive conversations with other characters. Becky is a very intelligent, compassionate, strong, and driven woman, but that was sometimes lost in her single-minded approach. There are suspenseful elements to this story, but not enough to distinctly label it a romantic suspense. I found the "mystery" surrounding Geoffrey to be predictable and it was resolved quite anti-climatically. The romantic elements of this story were present but not flushed out enough to keep me fully engaged. I felt like Becky was more attention hungry than actually having feelings for Geoffry or Rob. All in all, this was a pleasant book that offered a few hours entertainment. Rating: 6.5 / 10

    This book didn't really impress me. The first 100 pages were OK. I liked it, thought it would be a cute one time read. But the further I got into it, the more I loss interest in it. I had to make myself read the last 100 pages. I didn't really care for the main character Rebecca Haynes. I tried to like her, but I couldn't connect with her. The writing needed more depth. The characters didn't really capture me either. Also the last 50 pages happened too fast.It wasn't realistic. Now don't get me wrong, there is not anything wrong or bad about this book, just in my opinion it wasn't anything great. There were a few aspects I enjoyed in it. For instance....I did enjoy that it took place in Oklahoma. Because..well I'm an Okie. :PThis review is my honest opinion of "Finding Becky". *Thanks to Strang Book Group for providing a copy for review through FIRST Reads*

    A first reads goodreads win!! When I found out I had won this book I ordered the other two from my library but didn't have a chance to receive/ read them before I got this one in the mail. I decided to go ahead and read this first and it worked as a stand alone. However, I do plan to go back and read the others.This is primarily a historical Christian romance. It took place in 1905 in the Oklahoma Territory. I enjoyed this book for it's cleanness. Becky was quite wishy-washy with the romance part of her life but for the most part I still liked her character. I do feel the story wrapped up a bit too easily. Despite that it held my attention well and provided the escape I look for in books.

    I thought this was an interesting story about finding the main character Becky. The Story is about how Rob Frankston loves his true love(friend at the moment) needs to find his old friend Rebecca Haynes the way she was before she changed. Rob learns that people change and he has to learn how to accept Becky just the way she is. Than another character comes a long interfering Rob's love life with his dear Becky. Becky on the other hand feels great pleasure in finding that two men like her, while also fighting for women's rights. Becka then learns how to make decisions and to find true love when it is right in fron of your eyes. I think I should have read the first two first.

    A fast, enjoyable read. Set in the Oklahoma Territory, 1905, Becky Rebecca Haynes is coming home from college. She is determined to become a great journalist, specializing in Women Suffrages. Rebecca is independent and doesn't need anyone, not even God to help her make the decisions in her life and she especially doesn't need a man.But when she comes home, she meets an attractive man, Geoff. Geoff is coming to Barton Creek to do some cattle business and she finds out he's doing business with her father. Geoff finds Rebecca interesting and attractive and woo's her, but Rob, Rebecca's friend since childhood has plans for Rebecca and Geoff gets in the way and Rebecca is liking all this attention!!A fun, historical, somewhat love story that I definitely recommend!Tour Date : November 2nd

    Well, I hate to say it, but I didn't care much for this book. It wasn't awful, but I had to force myself to finish it. I found the main character, Becky, rather unlikeable with her newfound arrogance and flirting. Also, the writing felt stilted. Each conversation felt rather unnatural and no character seemed to have a distinct voice. I had a hard time understanding why Becky and the two love interests liked each other. It was more like she was cute and was there.

    I just love Martha Rogers writing. She takes you all the way to the end of the book--so that you aren't 100% sure what's going to happen until you read the final chapter! Excellent book (#3) in the series. Can't wait to read #4.
