And although some might be taken back by the violence or the level of prejudice, or even the "white pride" portrayed, it is very true to the times. It's not easy removing your 21st century ideals and understandings when you read historical novels, but you can't apply them. Otherwise, you risk viewing those people in a far more negative light than is appropriate for the time in which they lived.
That being said, I did find the cast of characters to be in line with most of Tracie's recent novels. The only problem with that is if you haven't read book 1 in this series, you'll likely get lost and confused. References are made, but there isn't enough to clarify some of them. And of course, this book ends with a cliffhanger of sorts that leads into book 3. Depending upon how anxious you are to find out what happens, you might want to wait until book 3 is released, then read all 3 in a row.
All in all, this book is what I've come to expect from Tracie. It's an enjoyable read, and her writing is what you can count on for a comfort read. You know you'll get a thorough, well-researched story.
Commitment, faith, tolerance, enduring hope, and searching for God, who never gives up on us. This entire series shows how
Families can hold together, especially in uncertain times; by leaning on Jesus, the One Who Loved first loved us!
I usually enjoy Tracie Peterson's work immensely, yet for some reason, this story felt slow to me, perhaps that is because this is book two of a three part series in which I haven't had the opportunity to read book one. The story also ended with a bit of a cliffhanger as well leaving me to wonder how this situation will be resolved. If you are interested in this series, I would suggest perhaps waiting for book three and working your way through the series from start to finish.

Book 3--Hope Rekindled (Striking a Match)
I loved this series! Typical Tracie Peterson who weaves a fantastic story that you feel you are living right beside of the characters. I like the realistic things she puts in her novels, makes you realize she just isnt writing a book but writing a history of the characters and it makes them dear to the heart.
I like her style of writing also because she isnt 'in your face with God'. Some people get put off by it and will not finish the book if you are constantly throwing things in. Friends of mine who were not christians read these and they call me asking me questions that the book makes them think, which brings out the 'God' questions and answers and they are not offended.
However, the only downfall I see are the secondary characters. They should have had their own books and they are very quickly matched up or their stories are very short in conjunction with the main people. I wish she would have elaborated on those in other books instead of quickly throwing those in. Kind of like she did with all the Alaskan books, or the Montana series.
This is a good and easy read. It flows and there really are no 'dead' spots. I have been a Peterson fan since her Alaska series (which they are all fantastic!--go and read those as well, get the whole series if you can as you wont be able to put it down!) Yukon Quest, Alaskan Quest and Song of Alaska Series. Who am I kidding, all her books are the best, hope she never stops writing!
