Treasured Grace

"Treasured Grace" by Tracie Peterson takes us to 1847 Oregon where we meet sisters Grace, Hope, and Mercy. As the story begins we learn that Grace has just lost her husband on the Oregon Trail and is now in charge of her younger sisters. They have nowhere to go and very limited possessions. They travel onward to the Whitman Mission in hopes of staying through the winter. Grace has been taught the practice of healing with natural remedies but finds her help is not wanted by the doctor that runs the mission. However when an outbreak of measles occurs the local Indians request her help when the doctors ways do nothing for their people. There to help her and guide her is a trapper named Alex. Alex moved to the Oregon territory to escape his past and is determined that he will never love another woman. However he soon finds himself falling for the sweet, gentle Grace and longs to help her in her darkest time.

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.
