The Express Rider’s Lady
By Stacy Henrie
Love Inspired Historical, 2016
Delsie Radford is going to make it to California, no matter the danger or difficulty. Her father may have kept her and her sister apart, but Delsie refuses to miss her sister's wedding—even with only eighteen days to get there. And she's found the perfect escort in Pony Express rider Myles Patton.
Myles can't believe it when a pretty socialite hires him to take her cross-country through rough terrain and dangerous territory. Surely she'll quit before they reach their destination—he's known girls like her before. But the longer they ride together, the more Myles notices Delsie's toughness and kindness beneath her polished exterior. And though they may be worlds apart…they might just be perfect for each other.
Stacy Henrie has always had a love for history, fiction, and chocolate. She earned her B.A. in public relations before turning her attentions to raising a family and writing inspirational historical romances. Wife of an entrepreneur husband and a mother to three, Stacy loves to live out history through her fictional characters. In addition to author, she is also a reader, a road trip enthusiast, and a novice interior decorator.

With its epic scope and beautiful writing, The Express Rider's Lady ranks among the best of Love Inspired books that I've ever read. I’m glad to have discovered the writing of Stacy Henrie.
Spanning a year’s time, The Express Rider’s Lady traverses the Pony Express route between Missouri and California in 1860, and evokes a strong sense of place as we glimpse the Western prairie and mountains through Delsie’s eyes. I gained a deep appreciation and respect for these Pony Express riders, who journeyed approximately 125 miles per day, facing hardship and danger.
Elements of faith are skillfully woven throughout – such as the way Delsie honored her father, and the effect of her faith on Myles. Stacy has beautifully shown through these characters that, even when we pull away from God, He is still quietly at work in our lives.
I enjoyed The Express Rider’s Lady very much and look forward to more from Stacy Henrie.
