When her disabled son, Kevin, wins a place in famous bull-rider Jake Dixon's annual wheelchair rodeo, Beth Conroy is reluctant to let him participate. But although it means taking unpaid leave from work, she can't say no. Watching as Jake teaches her son The Cowboy Way (3) is bittersweet—because of Kevin's hero worship and her own attraction to a man she fears is too much like her late husband. Christine Wenger makes a promising debut with this touching story, tugging skillfully at readers' hearts with her characters' vulnerabilities. Cowboy fans will love Jake.
