Forced to flee from the Inquisition, which is now in the New World, Rosa marries a man she does not know. Trusted Pablo, who has known her and her husband since childhood shares that though Rosa does not know it theirs will be a good match if one likes fire and ice.
Days of travel into the unknown, the ever-present coyote’s and the heat off the desert floor of what would someday be called Arizona, cause Rose to question her papa’s decision though he is the first governor of Nueva España. Yet, when Miguel tells her he was happy to run as she must because it was the only way her father would consent to their marriage, Rose knows Miguel loves her.
Upon reaching the rope bridge she must cross to get to her casa, fear grips Rosa and she cannot do what she must. Miguel becomes her savior when he carries her across. On that high plateau the couple is safe, and Rose learns to never ask and never tell. Life goes on this way until Miguel’s brother and sister-in-law visit and decided to live there as well.
Only after rescuing her dear madre does Rosa realize while apart that she has given her heart to this false god. Yet, it is this God–the true God of Christianity who reaches out to her. Can she give her life to Messiah and if so what will happen next?
Editorial Review: 4-Stars!
“When Rosa is forced to marry Miguel and flee into the wilderness, she has no idea what to expect. Hiding her Jewish faith and waiting while the Inquisition destroys all she holds dear, Rosa hides away from love as well, and from the world around her. Hope becomes a treasure hidden across a bridge where she dare not tread. And below the bridge lie rejection and forced assimilation into Christianity.
In Love’s Legacy the true God of Christianity reaches out, and Rosa responds, slowly learning to cross her bridge and discover God’s love. A sweet romance, set during the Inquisition, the story combines Jewish tradition, Christian hope, and the welcome of Apache friends into an enticing short tale-of well-researched history.” – Sheila Deeth, author The Five-Minute Bible Story Series, and Book Reviewer at Vine Voice
5-Stars! “My heart was touched by Rosa and her discovery of God while Miguel is sweet and strong. This is a powerful read that will touch your soul.” — Amy Coster
From The Author: Writing the Naomi books has been my joy! For Naomi and I penned them together. Although a fictional character, Naomi is as real, kind, loving, and caring as a dear friend would be. She faces problems that only the Lord can help her with. Just like you and me, she must give her heart to Him before that can happen. I love her faith journey and relate to it because I gave my heart to Jesus when I was forty.
With three of the six Naomi Inspirational Christian Romances published, I’ve read the glowing reviews and discovered that many feel as I do. I rejoice in this for, at my core, I write my heart. And my heart belongs to my Savior! When God called me to write, I prayed that what I wrote would be enjoyed by many and gifted to friends who need to hear of Messiah in a culturally sensitive way, and He answered my prayer.
I started writing the Naomi books while working for Chosen People Ministries as a Church Ministries Coordinator. Revisiting the churches with my husband on behalf of our mission to preach and teach in a Messianic context, I often discovered believers were not sharing their faith because they feared rejection. So, when the Lord directed, I left the mission to write full time for Him.
Over the years, God and the Holy Spirit (in Hebrew the Ruach HaKodesh) have called me to write ‘The Crucible of Becoming’ fictions which deal with difficult worldly issues at times using words I would never say, but God called me to this, so I rejoice! And as the head and founder of LAMB Ministries, I have been blessed to publish one of those teachings as a Christian Self-help book and plan to publish six more in the future. Readers of nonfiction will find a few other books that might interest them. Most notably among them for those who want to know how this profoundly dyslectic author became one, is “From ‘Why Johnny Can’t Read’ To “See Paula Write”: (Memoir: Inspiration Journey of Self-discovery.

About The Author: Writing great Inspirational Christian Romances is author Paula Rose Michelson’s passion. Her desire to inspire others comes from being a late reader, who discovered books were her best friends! A lover of inspiring fictions where the heroine was one for her families’ sake, she writes about amazing women who have unique faith challenges. When asked about her idea for The Naomi Chronicles, Paula said, “Naomi and I penned these fictions together.”
A writer of thrillers, nonfiction’s, memoir, Self-help and works to encourage, when not involved in her craft, speaking or helping other writers, Paula pursues other passions while supporting her husband Ron who is a Lutheran Pastor and Chosen People Ministries field missionary. At one point, both of them worked for the mission. However, when the Lord called Paula to write full-time, she gladly left to devote herself to this work.
This happy mother of two married daughters and grandmother of seven, has friends who often tell her that she weaves such wonderful tails they lose track of the time. Since both family and her ever-increasing reader family matter to Paula, she hopes to impart a blessing to those who read her books.
Some who first knew Paula as the founder, head, and facilitator of LAMB Ministries, have mentioned that a few of those biblical teachings are found within her books. Paula knows this to be true for her desire to faithfully depict Gods love, compassion, and forgiveness while showing her readers The Jewish Messiah of Israel and the world parallel her wish to see those who feel ‘less than’ restored to wholeness. Therefore, within each of her books, she includes a few of the teachings God gifted her so readers can overcome and feel good about themselves.
