Over all a good story.

Over all I enjoyed the book. However, I too wished there was more to Alice and Robert's story. They went from just meeting to being in love without any account of how that occured. I was hoping for more focus on their story.

While the story in this book is overall good, the characters are too hokey. The characters accents drive me crazy. Being from Texas, I found their dialogue to be utterly annoying. Some colloquialisms are fine in a book, but the author went overboard in this case. Additi...
While the story in this book is overall good, the characters are too hokey. The characters accents drive me crazy. Being from Texas, I found their dialogue to be utterly annoying. Some colloquialisms are fine in a book, but the author went overboard in this case. Additionally, being a Christian farmer's daughter myself and growing up around ranches and farms I have never, ever heard anyone say in real life that they are "branded for Christ." Oh dear goodness! We don't talk like that! It was just so sappy. I thought that the sermons that were in the book were narcissistic. Perhaps pastors preached that way back then (certainly many do now), but it didn't have to be in the book. The sermons focused more on what I should be doing rather than on what Christ has done for me. There were a few times in the book where the author made it clear that Christ is the way to heaven, but many times she also made it sound like we have to be better to earn it.
I think the story could have been better told had it toned back the poor theology and pretend Texas slang (we don't talk like that!!).
I received this book for free from Bethany Publishing House in exchange for my honest review.

    I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first book in the series. It was inspirng to see the emotional Alice went on. This book made me smile, laugh, & cry. It was clean, no filthy parts. I will read other Tracie Peterson novels.

    Alice Chesterfield was left alone when an attack left her fathe

    Alice Chesterfield was left alone when an attack left her father dead and her face scarred. She lives in fear that the man responsible will return and harm her and those she has come to care for--Jake and Marty Wythe. When the Wythe’s decide to return to their home in Texas due to a depression, Alice joins them in the hope that she can leave her past behind. Alice soon finds herself attracted to Marty’s handsome and kind nephew, Robert Barnett. Will Alice make peace with her past in order to embrace a beautiful future? A future that could involve Robert?

    Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors for three main reasons. 1) She creates these amazing, real characters you can immediately relate and sympathize with. 2) Her stories are always fast paced and not for a second boring. 3) Whether joy, anger, sadness, glee, or laughter...she has the ability to make her readers feel. I’ve never read a Tracie Peterson book that I didn’t like, and A Moment in Time was no exception.

    Alice was kind, heartfelt, giving, and completely unaware of her own beauty. Robert was a tad annoying at times, but still somehow lovable, funny, and kind. I immediately connected with the characters, but especially with Alice and Marty. They both had deep set fears that stemmed from loss and betrayal, but had a solid, growing relationship with God. A lot of this story was about faith and I really appreciated the little gems it contained. It was also slightly suspenseful at times, just enough to keep you excited.

    Tracie Peterson has done it again with her latest addition to this beautiful series. If you enjoy historical fiction, then I recommend you read the Lone Star Brides series asap! It was heartfelt, relatable, fast paced, and compelling. Now the only question I have is when is book three coming out?

    **I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are completely my own.
