Description

She's shy, he's stoic...not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman "Chief" Proudfit have their work cut out for them.

Sophie has a crush on the silent-but-studly firefighter next door. She's been pining away silently while secretly helping the hardworking man by mowing his lawn - which he thinks is being done by her nonexistent husband and/or boyfriend. He's definitely not big on neighborly chitchat, but with her stutter, that suits Sophie just fine. But now a misunderstanding at a bar has put him even further out of her reach.

Roman's difficult upbringing on an Indian reservation is a sore spot, so when he thinks Sophie is taking advantage of poor people for medical trials at her workplace, he lets her know exactly what he thinks. But when he discovers he misunderstood, he's man enough to admit it...and also that he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.

As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcome lifelong pains, for the first time in years, Roman has something to live for other than his job. And, as he discovers when Sophie puts herself in danger, something even bigger to lose....

Shelter for Sophie is the eighth book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Shelter for Sophie

Love, love, love Susan Stoker. I wish she could write as fast as I read. I am always chomping at the bit for her next book. I love that she has real life issues built in to her characters.

So worth the wait!

What about Erin Mallon’s performance did you like?

I loved that she was able to perform both the male and female roles so well and distinctly. At some points when Chief was talking, i almost forgot that the narrator was a female! Also, she did an exceptional job with the stutter for Sophie!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and i totally did!

Any additional comments?

Chief and Sophie were amazing. I was so impatiently awaiting the release of this book and i have to say, I loved this book so much. First off the narrator, Erin Mallon, did a fantastic job with this book and the stutter for Sophie ( this was my one fear about the audible version)! I love how their first interaction in the book comes about and also how she reacts in their next meeting. Chief is alpha, but also is very open with his feelings and beliefs. He was strong and sensitive at the same time and that was perfect for them! The bond that the two have is fantastic and i love love love that Mrs. Stoker took the time to research some Navajo language and traditions. This book was a great addition to the series and i look forward to the next book!

Recommended

I was intrigued to hear/read this story when I first read the blurb. I was not disappointed. I have been reading the series so I know Coach. I had an impression of a quiet, strong, private man with solid convictions. He is a good match for Sophie.

Erin Mallon did a terrific job bringing the story to life. Especially in portraying Sophie, with her stutter consistently.

Lessons from Chief and Sophie

Shelter for Sophie is the tale of a woman with a speech disability and a fire-fighter whose roots are entrenched in his Navajo people.

Sophie Carson has a crush on her neighbour, Roman “Chief” Proudfit, and has been secretly mowing his lawn. One chance meeting at a bar ends in a misunderstanding, where Chief mistakenly believes that Sophie is taking advantage of the needy and using them for medical trials at the laboratory where she works. Chief eventually realizes his mistake and rectifies the situation, falling for the shy woman in the process.

Susan Stoker pitches two trains of thought in Shelter for Sophie, the eighth story in her Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series.

The first, she tackles stuttering, a speech disorder that, according to the Mayo Clinic, involves frequent and significant problems with normal fluency and flow of speech. People who stutter know what they want to say, but have difficulty saying it.

Stuttering is usually common among children as a normal part of learning how to talk, and most outgrow this disorder. Sometimes, though, stuttering becomes a chronic condition that may persist into adulthood, which in turn may also affect the sufferer’s self-esteem and interactions with other people.

With Sophie, Susan Stoker tells us to be patient when we encounter people who suffer from stuttering. She wants us to understand that although this is a disability, stuttering in no way detract from a person’s ability to excel in life, or, like Sophie, be of service to others.

The second point the author wanted us to take note of is race, and yes, culture. Not the push and pull between the blacks or the whites, but the Native Americans, the indigenous people of the United States.

Susan Stoker gives us a glimpse of the beautiful culture of the Navajo people in the form of Chief. She introduces us to their culture and beliefs, and tells us, in her own way, that they are no less than the other cultures and races that make up a country known for its love for freedom and diversity.

Simply put, Susan Stoker tells us that as much as we demand respect from anyone regardless of gender, disability, class, race, culture or beliefs, so should we respect their choices, status, or situations in life.

After all, we share the most important commodity in all of humankind—and that is the blood that runs through all our veins.

This, to me, is another Susan Stoker home run of a story!
