This is a wonderful series. I am now on Book 3 (Hope Rekindled).. all of Tracie Peterson books that I have read are good Christian books to read. The story is so interesting and you can't put the book down. I could hardly wait for the next one in the series and then the next. She quotes God in her books and often times, it really helps me to see things in my own life in a different perspective. You won't be sorry if you read this series. called Striking a Match.

This book, filled with God-fearing homebodies, superstitious precautioners, and arrogant Easterners alike, began with an interestingly precarious situation. Tracie Peterson effectively communicated the morals, thoughts, and..essences, of the characters in a simple way.
Unfortunately, on the negative end, I honestly got a little bored with it towards the middle. I thought that the story lacked detail, which made events seem to happen too fast. Other times they happened too slow. And then the heart-warming ending I'd hoped would unfold, well, didn't.
Embers of Love is a book with a storyline unique in its own rights. The author provided a nice setting and realistic characters. If you are at all interested in this book, and if you don't mind waiting on a satisfying ending until the end of the series, then I would suggest for you to read Embers of Love.

I enjoyed this book somewhat. Deborah was enjoyable to read as a character, she’s very strong willed and knew exactly what she wanted from life. Especially during this particular time period where she had an interest in medicine and science, it would have been hard for a woman during that time to pursue these types of interests. Her strong and likable personality was what made the book a nice read.
So! why did I say I enjoyed this book ‘somewhat’? a few things. The pace of the plot was a bit too slow for my tastes. The characters are great and all, but if the plot is going nowhere, or it’s going at a snail’s pace well, there’s only so much the characters can do to capture and maintain your attention.
Then come the ‘convenient’ bits. Not going to go into much detail here to avoid spoilers, but let’s just say some people just pop up magically, while others just disappear and you’re wondering where the heck they went to. It seems like a cop out, and it’s like these characters can’t have anything wrong happen with them, and if it does, it’ll be swept under the rug conveniently. This gets tiresome and it makes the story dull and predictable possibly warding off potential readers.
I haven’t read the second or third yet, but I don’t think I’ll rush to go ahead and do so. If I find the second one, I’ll take it, otherwise I’ll take my time. Take it or leave it on this one.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It is a good story about finding love where you least expect it.

This is a good book, not too long or too short. I like historical romances and the author does a good job of describing life in Texas in the 1880's. I will definately look into the following books in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
