As usual Tacie Peterson has done a wonderful job of telling a story that draws the reader in until the end. She paints a vivid picture of the characters and what life was like during the time. This is a story that deals with several dark events and shows us that even in our darkest time God is with us and with love and forgiveness we can find hope for a brighter future. I highly recommend reading "Treasured Grace" first so that you can get the full background of Hope's story. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.

This is a wonderfully written book that is full of hope, love and mercy. This book takes us on an adventure while also showing us that with God's love and guidance we can overcome any obstacle in our path if we will only place our trust in Him. This book is the first book in the Bradford Sisters Romance and introduces us to many other characters we will see in the next two books. I highly recommend this book.

This is another amazing book by Tracie Peterson. She has the ability to tell a story that draws the reader in and will keep their attention to the end. She also is not afraid to write about dark topics while teaching the reader a lesson. In this book we see that no matter how bad the situation is Grace always turns to God and trusts that He will protect them and guide them to where they need to be. We see how Alex's past has caused turmoil in his life and how he has pushed God away because of it but when tragedy strikes he turns back to God to help him through. This is a wonderful book that tells a tale of hardship and tragedy and also of hope and love. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.

Jill Eileen Smith does an amazing job of bring the Book of Ruth to life and retelling one of the greatest love stories of all time. She paints a vivid picture of the characters and the setting and makes the reader feel like they are there with Naomi and Ruth. The story of Ruth shows us that even though bad things happen in our lives God is always there with us and loving us. Even when we may drift from Him, His love never wavers. We only need to turn to Him and put our trust in Him and He will see us through our dark times and bring us to a brighter future. I highly recommed this book and all of this author's books as she does a wonderful job of bringing the Bible to life. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Revell.

This was a wonderfully written book that is full of historical detail. This book is set around the dedication of Mount McKinley National Park and the presidential visit in 1923. The author does a good job of drawing the reader in and keeping their interest. She also does a good job of teaching us a lesson while telling a tale. This story shows us through Cassidy that even though our life's journey may be rough God is always with us and will help us to live a happy life if we give our lives over to Him. We also see how God is able to take the bitterness and darkness out of Allan's life when he finally does give his heart to God. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next in the Heart of Alaska series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers.

This book shows us so many examples of why we should always place our trust in God. We see that when Deborah turns to God to direct her path she finally gets the man she deserves. We also see that with the help of God Toby is able to finally put his past behind him and become the man worthy of Deborah. There are may other life lessons to be learned from this story as well.
This is another wonderfully written book that will transport the reader to our favorite fictional town in South Dakota. Lauraine Snelling does an amazing job of painting a vivid picture of what life was like during that time and makes the reader see the town, the farms, and the people. You will wish you could shop at Penny's store, have a sweet treat at Rebecca's, or have a conversation with the wise Ingeborg. I highly recommend all of the books set in Blessing so that you can "watch" the town and people grow. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.
