Today, I have a guest post from Faith Blum and her new book, He Hideth My Soul. This Christian Western sounds intriguing. What do you think?
Have you ever had a hard time loving someone? I think everyone probably has at one time in their life. But what would your life be like if you’ve never had the courage to love anyone? Faith Blum explores that idea in her new book, He Hideth My Soul.

Otis spent the day putting Dr. Benson’s office back in order. He was a very good doctor, but not at all good at organizing or keeping things organized. Otis often wondered how Dr. Benson survived before he started helping.
He finished what he could and headed to the stage office. As usual, it was a little late.
Two men stepped off the stage, and Otis looked at first one, then the other. Which one was the lawyer? One was rotund and older and the other thin, wiry, and looked to be a little older than him.
“Mr. Parker?” Otis asked.
The thin, wiry man with slicked down, dark-brown hair looked his way, smiled slightly, and held out his hand. “You must be the fortunate Otis Miller.”
Otis nodded and winced inwardly at his tight grip. “I am.”
“Nice to meet you. Is there a respectable sleeping establishment around here?”
“You have a couple of choices,” he answered. “There is a boarding house, a small hotel, or the family who raised me since Pa died offered to house you if you’d like. It is out of town on a ranch, so I wasn’t sure which you would prefer.”
“I think I would prefer the boarding house. No offense to you or your family.”
Otis smiled. “None taken. I’ll take your bag and we can go.”
“Thank you. When can we meet to go over the inheritance? Miss Miller did mention it to you, correct?”
They walked and talked at the same time. “Yes, she did. I’m sure you are tired, so tomorrow morning will be fine.”
He nodded. “Thank you. That is extremely considerate of you. And with it being a Saturday tomorrow, Miss Miller can join us if you would like.”
“Can my brothers and sisters come, too, if they want? And Mr. Brookings?”
Otis paused at the walkway to the boarding house. “Is this respectable enough?”
He looked it over. “For a two-bit cowtown, yes.”
