A man who wants to rule in Hell. A woman who wants to find her faith again...
Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a "nice" hotel, he is intrigued enough to let them stay...especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre.

It would seem however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, "Why?" Does God really have a plan for each and every life?

Written with gritty, but not gratuitous, realism uncharacteristic of historical Christian fiction, A Lady in Defiance gives a nod to both Pride and Prejudice and Redeeming Love. Based on true events, it is also an ensemble piece that deftly weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.

Review:

Faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, but can it change an isolated mining town that caters to a myriad of depravities? When tragedy changes the course of three sisters' lives, they find themselves as hotel owners leading a campaign to bring respectability, and thus the railroad, to the crass town of Defiance.

In a bold story that shows the tainted lives and thoughts of the town's residents, Blanton deftly reminds readers of the beauty of a Gospel that calls sinners, even righteous ones, to repentance and eternal life.-- Carolina Trails

... I've told my friends about this book and shared with them certain parts where the Lord convicted me of things in my own life that needed to be changed and how He reaffirmed that the way I view issues that most Christian's don't want to touch are right and should not be ignored. Anyway it's a clean but blunt book, it makes you cry in areas and cringe in others but well worth the read and thank goodness it's only a couple of more weeks before book 2 comes out.-- Laura Christofoli
