This is the third book in the Return to the Canadian West series and it is another winner. The authors are quick to draw the reader in and keep them involved in the story. The book paints a vivid picture of what live in a little Canadian town would have been like during the time period. In this book we see that even though Beth always turns to God and put her faith in Him to guide her she still stumbles. This book shows us that nobody is perfect but with God’s help and forgiveness we can always improve to become a better person.
I highly recommend ready the first two books, “Where Courage Calls” and “Where Trust Lies” first so that you will have the full back story of Beth, Jarrick, and the people of Coal Valley. I also recommend reading the Canadian West series by Janette Oke. This is the series that started it all with Beth’s aunt also named Elizabeth. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House.

This is another wonderfully written book by Tracie Peterson that will draw you in from the beginning. She paints a picture with words that will take the reader on the adventure with Phoebe and Ian and leave them wanting more. This book is a heartwarming read that will also take the reader on the spiritual journey of Phoebe as she grows close to God during her difficult time. This story shows us that even when things are at their darkest; God will carry us through if we will put our faith in Him to bring us to a better tomorrow. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House.
