Bestselling Author Tracie Peterson Teams Up with Kimberley Woodhouse for a Depression-Era Drama

Gwyn Hillerman acts as a nurse at her father’s medical practice in 1935 rural Alaska. Her family life has been rough ever since her mother, hating Alaska, took Gwyn’s younger sister back to Chicago to live.

Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after he loses an affluent patient. In a snowball effect, he then loses his engagement to Gwyn’s sister, Sophia. When the government decides to send a group of families to Alaska in hopes of making a better life, Dr. Hillerman sends a letter urging Jeremiah to join his practice. Thinking his secret would be safe in the isolated Alaska Territory, Jeremiah agrees.

Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when another suitor enters the scene and Jeremiah’s secret is revealed, their hopes for a future are threatened.

(This description was taken from Tracie Peterson’s website…I hope that’s ok for me to use it…after all, I am trying to get people to come meet her and buy the book! 🙂 )

The Miner’s Lady (Land of Shining Water, Book 3) by Tracie Peterson (5 Stars)

The Miner’s Aren’t The Only Danger These Families Face


The Miner’s Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) by Tracie Peterson (5 Stars)

Remember the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s?  Well, their feud has nothing on the feud between the families of the Panetta’s and Calarco’s.  These two Italian American families have hated each other for many decades, going all the way back to Italy and a mule.  I know that doesn’t make sense to you now, but it will when you read the book.

Isabella Panetta and Orlando Calarco have fallen desperately in love.  Yet the father’s of both families are totally against it and forbid them from seeing each other.  They enlist their older siblings, Chantel Panetta and Dante Calarco to help them.  Chantel is much more receptive to them, because she has a deep love for the Lord and hates the feud between the families.  While, Dante is not quite so willing.  But the beautiful Chantel is slowly wearing him down.

There’s so much I want to say, but to say anything will give away some of the story and you just have to go into this story open to God’s workings and be ready to be swept away with emotion after emotion after several tragedies occur.  But God has not left them to deal with these things alone.  He is forever working in their lives and we get the privilege to read this story and watch the lives of these families unfold.  I laughed some, I cried a lot.  It’s an excellent story of God’s redemption and grace.

Although this is Book 3 in the series, it does not have to be read in order.  Each story is totally separate with the characters, but the setting is always in Minnesota. This is Christian fiction, yet the characters faith is so entwined in their lives, that the book does not come across as preachy.  Anyone who loves historical, romantic suspense will love this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest opinion and did not receive any compensation for a favorable review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Let’s meet Tracie:


I encourage you to visit this link to Tracie’s website and view her videos.  She talks about herself and shares about her family and then there is a section of frequently asked questions and you can click on the question and will be directed to another website.  You’ll then have to search for her name on the list of authors on the right-hand side and then you can listen to her answer those questions.  I loved it!  It makes it so much more personal knowing the author better and how she goes about her day and what inspires her and how she works.  I think you’ll enjoy this as much as I did!

The Quarryman’s Bride (Land of Shining Water Book 2) by Tracie Peterson (5 Stars)

Family Loyalty and Lost Love


The Quarryman’s Bride by Tracie Peterson

It’s 1886 in St. Cloud, Minnesota and seventeen year-old Emmalyne Knox was engaged to marry Tavin MacLachlan in a few weeks.  But tragedy struck the town and her family especially and now because of an old family tradition, she is now the youngest daughter and is expected to remain living with her parents to care for them the rest of her life.  There was no changing her father, Luthias Knox’s mind.  He packed up and moved his remaining family away and for 11 long years all Emmalyne did was care for her parents and brother, Angus (the only bright spot in her life) and daily wondered about Tavin.  Her heart breaking each time she thought of all she had lost.

Luthias Knox is a very hard, unyielding man.  He has no love in him and it shows in the way he treats his wife, daughter and son.  He ruined his daughter’s life, yet she felt like it was her duty to honor her parents as God had said in His Word.  Now after 11 long years circumstances change and they move back to St. Cloud, Minnesota.  Her father will be working with Robert MacLachlan, Tavin’s father.  He now owns a quarry and has offered Luthias a job.  But Emmalyne is scared.  Will Tavin still be there?  Will he be married and have children?  Can she bare to see that and will her heart break again?

But as with all things, God has a master plan and although this book is full of pain and heartache, it’s also full of love, redemption and restoration.  I loved reading every word, even thought sometimes I got so mad at Mr. Knox!  This is a wonderful book and anyone who loves historical romantic fiction that is not sappy, but gritty and tense and not always the “happily ever after for everyone story” will love this book.  It keeps you wondering what will happen between Emmalyne and Tavin and there’s a new doctor in town that has his eyes on Emmalyne too.  I highly recommend this book and series.  This is not the type of series you have to read in order.  Each book is separate, they are just all set in Minnesota.  So just go pick one up and enjoy!  I’m picking up, The Miner’s Lady #3, today!
