Creede of Old Montana by Stephen Bly~a review~

No one knew how Avery John Creede got the scar on his face.

From the back cover:
Creede of Old Montana follows the exploits and heartbreaks of Avery John Creede, an ex-cavalry soldier, as he tramps along the upper Missouri River in search of four Army pals who didn’t show up for a scheduled reunion.

In Fort Benton, Avery Creede inadvertently stops a bank robbery. With that action, all hope of sitting on the sidelines and watching the world go by fades away. Suddenly, he finds himself in the middle of one conflict after another. And through it all, he makes some discoveries about himself.

Throughout Creede’s confrontations and adventures, three things remain constant: his courage, his rock-solid faith, and his wounded heart. He knows the first two will never change. And at forty-two, he’s not sure the third ever will either.

About the author:
Author of over 100 books, 37 of them Westerns. and winner of the prestigious Christy Award, Stephen Bly has a worldwide fanbase. Creede of Old Montana is a novel with humor and heart, action and intrigue, doubt and faith-and Creede is a singular character who is sure to live on for the ages.

My Review:
I have never read a book written by Stephen Bly that I didn’t love and “Creede of Old Montana” is the best one ever. This book will have you laughing, crying, holding your breath and just having a great time. As soon as Avery John Creede comes into the story there is one conflict after another. He stops a bank robbery, a beautiful girl Sunny tries to
kill him. Then he finds out his nephew has grown up and is now 16. Avery Creede’s love of his life Carla shows up. Also the Rinkman gang is after him and Sunny. All of this happens while John is trying to find his 4 Army buddies. Creede has a strong faith and tries to do the will of the Lord. He is a person who lives his faith and also is willing to share it with any one he comes across.
One scene in the book made tears come to my eyes and that doesn’t happen often. It was so touching and full of emotion. Sad, but very beautiful.
“Creede of Old Montana” is funny, inspiring, full of love, has many battles and fights, but also has sad, touching moments. So if you love Westerns this is a book you must have. Even if you don’t like them you will love this book. I HIGHLY recommend “Creede of Old Montana.”
