Sometimes placing your faith in God's Hands, uncertain of where the outcome might be is a true test of a believer.

Just when life seemed to have settled down for Deborah Vandermark and her soon to be husband, Dr. Christopher Clayton Kelleher, that it's about to be thrown for a loop. Just a week before their wedding is planned, Christopher receives a telegram from his family in Kansas City. A tragedy has occurred and he is needed quick. No other details are known since sending a telegram can be quite expensive and his family wouldn't be able to afford much.

Placing trust in God's Hands, Deborah does her best to provide confidence and assurance to Christopher that she will wait for him, no matter what, and that his presence is needed with his family now, whatever has happened. Although she begins to question what will happen to them and their plans for a wedding and a future.

When Christopher arrives in Kansas City, he is more than shocked to see that his family home is nothing more than a pile of smoldering ash. His home has burned to the ground and claimed the life of his mother and father, leaving his five younger siblings behind as orphans. Not knowing how Deborah will handle the responsibility of having a ready made family, he offers up a prayer to God and rests knowing that whatever will happen, won't be a surprise for God.

While Vandermark Logging struggles financially now that the sawmill has burned to the ground, they await the decision of Stuart Albright and Mr. Longstreet to determine whether or not it will be rebuilt. The Vandermarks are locked into a contract with Stuart that prohibits them from selling their logs to anyone but Stuart and right now, he isn't in any hurry to make a decision.

Format: Paperback
Historical accuracy in a compelling 1887 small town story. A business clash, primarily between the rich, evil, Stuart Albright and the Vandermark Logging Co. family. Setting is Texas but this is NOT a western. It's a story of business intrigue and community loss. This conclusion of a trilogy hints at exciting, dramatic aspects of the past books, BUT...accomplished best-selling author Tracie Peterson has included ample information into the dialogue, events, and descriptions that the entire family of protagonist Deborah. Past is revealed for those who have not read books 1 & 2. It is her typical historical action packed way, including a romantic plot, and a historic sub-plot to entangle with the main theme. That is HOPE, and the rekindling of a town's hope.

You will learn to hate, in this book primarily dealing with a God-believing community. Some Bible teaching is scripted into the story, but not in a preachy way. It's more of a way to demonstrate the extreme faith of a few characters. Others struggle with their beliefs, especially in the times of suffering. And suffering is included. There are hooded vigilantes known as the "White Hand of God" (historically known by 3 letters) who attempt to rid the town of unwanteds, or at least keep them in their place. The Vandermark family is suffering from the fire-loss of the Perkinsville mill (fire in book 2) with whom they are solely contracted to. Bad Albright, mill owner/leader, is also on a revenge mission against this family.

Romance plot is Deborah about to marry a doctor who suddenly has his own family crisis which leads to catastrophic wedding alterations that could lead a Christian bride to drinking.

Very very very good book. Clean, no sex. An excellent history lesson within the plot. Interesting and entertaining as well. I really enjoyed this series, the books were all very good. The only thing that would make it perfect would be if the author would ease up on the passionate premarital kissing.

I have enjoyed the Striking the Match series. I received the first one (Kindle edition) free and purchase books 2 and 3 just to see how the characters developed. This book was very interesting with a few plot twists but nothing too surprising. It is refreshing to read without having to confront foul language and sexual innuendo or scenes. Each book can definitely stand alone if that is what the reader would prefer. Overall I would recommend this book (and the series) to anyone who wants to read for enjoyment and be reminded that God is definitely in control if we allow him to be. Blessings to all who read this review.

Hope Rekindled, the last book in Striking a Match series, VERY good! There was so many good people living in Perkinsville, such good Christians, so very faithful! It is so heart warming to read stories where the people read the bible and try to follow God's teaching,, to try to walk in His path! If you love to read good clean stories filled with suspense and romance anything written by Tracie Peterson is for you! I appreciate the fact that most of her stories are reasonably priced. Some are priced above what I will pay, and that's too bad as I love her books so much. But I have been able to buy and download at least half of her series. I highly recommend anything written by this author!
