Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When Dalton’s sister Evie must return to Kansas City to deal with her husband’s death, he goes along to learn more about his heritage. He leaves behind a budding romance with Phoebe Robbins, newly arrived in Sitka as part of the third governor’s entourage, and an estrangement from his best friend, Yuri Belikov, whose father owns the local boatbuilding firm where both work. Peterson’s second historical inspirational romance set in late-nineteenth-century Alaska builds on the events of Dawn’s Prelude (2009) as they affect the next generation. Evie can move forward with her feelings for local mill owner Joshua Broadstreet, and Dalton will meet his other siblings in order to evaluate their temperaments and intentions for himself. Although critical readers may find some of the characters’ inappropriately modern sensibilities discordant, engaging descriptions of the Alaskan setting and cultural tensions and rapid pacing help the reader enter fully into the drama. --Lynne Welch --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Phoebe Robbins quickly realizes that her life in Sitka, Alaska, will be a far cry from what she knew in the East. The weather seems to be constantly rainy, goods are often scarce, and there's little entertainment, save the small orchestra she joins. There are also plenty of men actively seeking a wife, but it is Dalton Lindquist--with his swarthy good looks--who is the most intriguing part of this isolated existence. Despite their unusual first encounter, Phoebe dares to hope that the spark she feels between them is returned in equal measure. When Yuri Belikov, Dalton's best friend, begins to pursue her, Phoebe finds herself in a precarious position. Did she misread Dalton's interest? How will her decision between the two men affect their friendship? And what of the long-buried secret in her own family's past? In the challenges ahead, Phoebe will learn of consequence and forgiveness...and the power of love.

Read the first of the series and couldn't wait for the next installments.
Alexis Elliot
The story was a little predictable and considering the time setting of the book, things moved along more like in todays world.
Konnie Arnemann
I was waiting for book 2 which is Morning's Refrain to come out and now I can't wait to read book 3.

This book was a real chore to finish. I wholeheartedly liked the setting in Alaska and the storyline was mildly interesting. The descriptions of the surroundings and climate were good. Unfortunately, the characters are shallow and the dialogue is not realistic. There was a lack of authenticity and believability to the characters. I didn't enjoy the way they all said the perfect things in the perfect way. It was really annoying. I don't recommend this particular book.

Another excellent book from Tracie Peterson. I wait for her "series" in particular as you always have something more to look forward to at books end. I feel she has great descriptive qualities of both characters and the scenic wonders surrounding the characters in this good read about romance in early Alaska. I felt this book sort of got boring toward the middle and had to urge myself to continue but I knew I would have a third in the series to look forward to. There is both romance and action in this book and characters you won't forget. I suggest this book to any non-stop reader as I am.

A while back I wrote a rave review about

Dawn's Prelude by Tracie Peterson

You can read my review for this book here: [...]

I absolutely loved Dawn's Prelude and I gave it 5 out of 5 stars. It is, to date, probably one of my favorite Kindle freebies that I have ever received.

Recently, I contacted Beverly House Publishers and they were kind enough to send me copies of the next two books in the series, Morning's Refrain and Twilight's Serenade to review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one.

So, I have just read and finished

Morning's Refrain by Tracie Peterson

Morning's Refrain is set some 18 years later when Lydia's first child, Dalton, who was born at the end of Dawn's Prelude, is now full-grown at 18 years old.

We learn that Lydia is still happily married to Kjell, that Zerelda is still there caring for her family, and that Lydia's step-daughter, Evie, who brought Dalton back to Alaska in the first book, has remained in Sitka for these past 18 years making her home with Lydia and Kjell, and never having returned to her husband with whom she shared no love in the marriage.

Dalton has always known Kjell was not his biological father and has heard whispers that his birth was surrounded by strange circumstances of the likes that usually do not occur in Sitka. Finally, at 18 years old he believes he is old enough to know why his parents have kept these secrets from him, and what exactly occurred at his birth.

Dalton is shocked to find out that his biological father and the rest of his half-siblings are mean, evil people who have no regard for others in any way.

I was unsure if I would enjoy the second book Morning's Refrain by Tracie Peterson in the series Song of Alaska because of the negative reviews that I read on this book. But since I had read the first book and enjoyed it, I decided to go ahead and purchase it and read it. Well, I am glad I did because I did enjoy it and look forward to the third book coming out soon.

This story takes place 18 years after the first book ends and is about Dalton Lindquist, the son of Lydia Lindquist. He desires to learn more about his past and who his family was before his mother came to Alaska to live. After much soul searching, he decides to leave Alaska for a time and go back to Kansas City with his Aunt Evie to search out the many dark family secrets. The book, of course, also, has a romantic side to it with Dalton falling in love with a woman named Phoebe.

Format: Paperback
I must admit, I was left feeling very disappointed when I finished reading this book. Like many of Tracie's other books it is very hard to relate to. I don't enjoy reading a book where all the characters are basically the same. It was very much like all her other books in that all of the main characters are extremely attractive. It really bugs me that the only woman in the book who was not stunningly beautiful was the stepdaughter that no one liked... Because that is not the way things are in the real world and it leaves women feeling that they should look that way also. Instead of highlighting their inner beauty, Tracie focused quite a bit on their outer. The other problem I had was how smoothly everything went in the book. That doesn't happen most of the time, and I'd really like a book that has realistic problems/solutions instead of fairytale type perfection. If this is the type of book you enjoy... Well, then I'd definitely recommend it to you. But if you are looking for something you can relate to, I do not recommend it for you.

The story was interesting but I had hoped for more history about Alaska. The books arrived in good time and in the shape I was expecting.
