Kelly's previous book, Borrowed Light is an almost mandatory pre-requisite. All subject matter has it's origins in that story. I am a long-time Carla Kelly fan and have enjoyed her Regency and Western writings for years

Kelly's previous book, Borrowed Light is an almost mandatory pre-requisite. The romance, however, was a shining standout. I am a long-time Carla Kelly fan and have enjoyed her Regency and Western writings for years. One of the standout qualities of her writing is her ability to see the humanity in all of her characters. Until this book, Ms. Kelly has been incredibly even-handed in her treatment of characters of all backgrounds.

Carla Sue Kelly (born 1947) is a popular and acclaimed writer in the Regency romance genre. She is the author of over forty books and short stories. Her books are what romance readers call "keepers," . books they keep in their private collections, and accordingly they can be hard to find. Renowned for what she calls "dukeless" regencies, her stories often revolve around ordinary people solving their own problems.

  • Carla Kelly's three books that I have read, touching upon the lives of Mormons in the US West in the early part of this century, can certainly be enjoyed by non-Mormons. Borrowed Light and Enduring Light are set in Salt Lake City and from 1910 to 1912. The main character is a young woman, Julia Darling, who has broken off an engagement and decides to use her culinary skills by responding to an ad for a cook to work on a Wyoming cattle ranch. Borrowed Light covers Julia's first year on the ranch, and the second book deals with her marriage to the ranch owner, Paul Otto.

    The books are set in a milieu where being Mormon is "normal" for these people, but they know that their faith is not widely accepted by other Christians. We also see how their faith motivates the choices the characters make as they face struggles and challenges in their lives. However, the books do NOT try to convert the reader. If you have read books by Chaim Potok, set in Jewish families, or books about the Amish or people from India, the treatment is the same -- Kelly is showing historically accurate portrayals of how a sub-culture of Americans lived 100 years ago.

    Are the books good? Do they keep your attention and hold your interest? Well, if you like stories that show the nitty-gritty of life and how people can rise to challenges and be faithful to each other, then these books are good. I felt as if I was there in Wyoming, experiencing the weather, the textures, and the people of that area. Kelly's characters are three-dimensional, and, as usual, there's lots of humorous dialog and situations in both books. I like to feel as if I am learning about a place and time that I don't know much about. As it happens, I did spend part of a day on a remote Wyoming ranch, and even drove a shift-truck over the heavily rutted roads to see the different fields where the cattle roamed. The wind and the smell of sagebrush still stick in my memories. So, these two books build upon that brief glimpse into a very different world.

    I am a huge fan of Carla Kelly's regencies and I have like her 4 books set in the US West of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I'm not as fond of the Spanish Brand books, but the setting may just not appeal to my imagination. Carla Kelly always writes well and with great heart and insight into the human condition. I heartily endorse her "more Mormon" books (as a definite non-believer) - "My Loving Vigil Keeping" (based on real people and facts in a coal-mining town in Utah), and the two books - Borrowed Light and Enduring LIght. You will like the stories, the people, the adventures, the humor -- and you may gain some insight into Mormon faith and history along the way. It's all good!

  • This was a very sweet Christian read with a Mormon twist! Kelly has become a beloved author through her mainstream romances so this, her switch to inspirational, will either be a delight or disappointment depending on ones point of view.

    Her easy, engaging style, lovable, believable characters and down to earth warmth are wonderfully present in this Western romance. The character of Julia Darling is a graduate of Fannie Farmer's school of cooking in Boston and prides herself in being able to cook culinary masterpieces, so when she accepts a job cooking for a large ranch full of men in Wyoming, one can imagine the plethora of predicaments she gets herself into while trying to heighten the cowhand's palettes. Her relationship to Mr. Otto, her employer is absolutely dear. In fact this whole book reads like a warm fuzzy on a cold night.

    If there are drawbacks it would be in two areas. First, Kelly's attempt at incorporating everyday "Mormonism" into the storyline seems somewhat clumsy in the beginning, almost as if Ms. Kelly is trying a little too hard. It does level out as the book progresses and develops into a more subtle yet integral part of the development. Second, with a "sweet" romance, (NO sexual graphics whatsoever) the emotions of the relationship become paramount to the believability of the romance. When we finally work up to that first kiss, we really want to know how it felt! What was it like? Unfortunately here, there was litle more than a mention, then on to cooking dinner.

    Still, for a wonderfully clean, delightfully engaging, sweet romance, "Borrowed Light" goes to the top of the list!

  • I have read Borrowed Light and the sequel, Enduring Light, three times and I could read them again tomorrow and be absolutely mesmerized. I can't think of another author that leaves me so fluttery. I love Carla Kelly books.

    Rancher Paul Otto is far from perfect but he is a man who loves those who are in his care. Paul was orphaned at the age of 15 and left to run the sprawling Wyoming Ranch left to him by his Indian father. Finally, after 20 years of eating from cans and the occasional restaurant, he decides to advertise in the Deseret Newspaper for a mature cook.

    Enter our sweet heroine, Julia Darling, who was raised in a good Mormon family in Salt Lake City. Julia was engaged to be married to a rather boring banker by the name of Ezra when she sees the ad placed by "Rancher Desperate..." in Wyoming. She breaks off her engagement, receives approval from her parents to go to Wyoming thinking to meet an aged employer for whom she will be able to utilize her recently acquired fancy cooking skills learned at the Fanny Farmer Cooking School.

    What a surprise is in store when the desperate "Long Time Rancher" Paul Otto meets "Mature Woman" 27 year old and lovely Julia Darling! The story of their relationship development is fascinating. Paul calls everyone by their last name(s)only, so when he immediately begins calling Julia "Darling" you can see where this story is heading.

    I can even handle the LDS theme although I'm not going to convert, it's still a great story.
