Summary

Esau Fitzpatrick is bad at being good - and even worse at being bad. As he waits for his sweetheart, Ella Allen, inside the Paisley Settlement church, a brewing storm erupts and lightning strikes, setting the church aflame. Ella and her parents pull Esau from the fire, but his parents are lost in the blazing inferno.

Angry at God, Esau flees his home and all he holds dear, only to fall in with the notorious Covington-Jones gang. He journeys down the path to destruction and darkness, reliving the hellish fire in his nightmares.

Ella clings to the prayer that Esau will find his way back to a godly path - and to her. But Esau is gone, and her world is falling to pieces. Ella must lean on God in a way she's never had to before as she follows her heart against everyone's wishes. Can she dare to believe that Esau will ever change?

Esau's life as an outlaw comes to a head during an epic cattle rustle. He is forced to choose between eternal hellfire and the rocky path of the Lord. Will Ella still be waiting for him? Or, has he lost her forever? God reaches out to Esau again, but will it be in time?

The Calling of Esau

A fire in the church that killed his parents set Esau on a downward spiral that had him questioning God and spurning people close to him. He joins the Covington Jones Gang, a group of dishonest men living for themselves with no regard for others. But Ella, Esau's sweetheart back home hasn't given up on Esau's return to the faith and to her. It turns out God's plan was much bigger than Ella or Esau could imagine. A sweet historical romance that lets the power of God shine through. Narration by J. Scott Bennett was excellent and easy to listen to. He always does well with character voices and pacing. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Christian Historical Romance

God will never leave you or forsake you! Even when you turn from God, He's still be your side! This godly man turns his back on God and leads a life of crime until the Lord saves his life and redeems him! It reminds me a bit of Scrooge's return to a life of goodness and joy! Great narration!
