    Awesome read!

    This story was truly fabulous in every way. I sensed the peril and the helplessness the characters experienced as much as I felt the tenderness and love. This is probably Tracie's best book yet. Her plotting is sheer perfection and the pace was satisfying. There was a suspenseful element to the story that made me not want to sleep until the situation was resolved and the people were safe. There was a secondary character that was compassionate, too. I worried for her and her lifeless marriage and started to sweat when temptation literally nipped at her corsette.

    I love it when an author makes me care enough to worry about the characters. Of course, the romantic element was amazing and probably the best part of the book. When the sparks flew my heart felt ablaze along with the people in love. Trust is so hard for some people to experience after years of abuse and mistreatment. The hero in this story was the perfect person to reestablish that missing link and give the heroine hope. He was also smart enough to allow the heroine to come to him. Sigh, that was soooo romantic!

    Ah, this was such a good read! In fact, it's making my favorite books of 2009 list. I would've read it straight through but life got in the way. It was very hard to put down and the story kept calling me to pick it up again and finish. I'm glad I did.

    The Best of Christ's Love

    First let me mention about how much I love the cover of this book, the coloring especially is just to die for it is so pretty. So far almost every historical fiction that I have read from Tracie Peterson I have enjoyed and this one is no different on that enjoyment scale. It may not be as non stop fabulous as the Yukon Quest, but it in a different manner it is better at the same time. Reading the book blurb as an expectant reader you can assume certain things of the plot line and story to occur and wonder how they unfold and what will happen next, but this novel is so much more in depth with twists and turns and much more plot than the blurb even begins to imply.

    The best of Christ's beginning love is shown through in the characters and they learn and grow. Evil is still present as ever in some characters as is always in the writing of Tracie Peterson in a way that is very real as uncomfortable as that may seen. What is fabulous is the way that even with so many bad things that can possibly occur all the good that God can bring out of it. With emotions running, and pages not turning fast enough if you ever have enjoyed some of the work of this author before you will be glad to read this new novel that does not disappoint. If you have yet to read Tracie's books, this is a great place to start. I highly recommend her. This book is a great start to a new series and I cannot wait for the next one.

    Restores my faith in historical fiction!

    Just about the time I start thinking, "Why did I get another historical fiction book?" I open up Tracie Peterson's new book "Dawn's Prelude" and get absolutely swept away in an amazing story! I totally loved this book! There is something for everyone (romance, adventure and a little suspense) and fans of historical fiction will add this book to their most loved shelf.

    Lydia is a new widow who, sad to say, is not sorry to see her husband gone. He was very abusive and many years her senior... it was a business arrangement set up by her father more than it was a marriage that she wanted anything to do with. Now all she can see is freedom, from him and his children who are not happy when the will is read. She takes off to Alaska, the new frontier, to live with her aunt. Once there she is met with a few surprises but rallies to find peace and love until someone from her past threatens to destroy it all.

    I couldn't put this book down and read it in a day... now I just can't wait for book #2 in this new series to come out!
