Tracie Peterson is at the top of my favorites list for historical fiction. She is simply the best. In reviewing Book 1 of her newest series, "Land of The Lonestar", she has soared to the top once again. The writing flows. Your heart opens up wider than you would expect and then the blessings begin to flow. She carries you to another time and place. She brings characters alive and places you right there in the depths of this wild and untamed land.
We have two characters, Hannah and William, with two different lives, about to collide. The country as been at war and there are wars close to home. Hitting the heart directly on target. I admired these characters. They make their faith known and they bring family to the forefront of what's important in life. They stand against struggle and fear, coming together in ways they never imagined.
Friends, if you are searching for a great summer read, you will not falter with Tracie Peterson. In fact, you will be blessed by a new hope springing forth right before your eyes.
This book was a gift from Bethany House for it's review.
