1886 fire burns down the Diamond V ranch house and several other facilities forcing the Selby family to relocate to nearby Virginia City, Montana Territory. Dianne Selby hates living in town, but her spouse Cole keeps delaying their return with one pretext after another....................... Cole learns that his father Hallam is dying so he, Dianne and their children travel to Kansas to say their last respects starting with his dad meeting his wife and grandchildren for the first time and helping his mother Mary cope with her loss and work the farm. Upon completing the trek, Mary sets the tone greeting Dianne about never visiting when her spouse was healthy. After Hallam dies, Mary pressures Cole to run the family farm he inherited while remaining nasty towards his wife and children; Dianne decides to end her cruelty to her grandchildren by taking them with her and going home though it means deserting her husband...................... The final inspirational historical novel in the Heirs of Montana quartet, THE HOPE WITHIN, is a terrific family drama that vividly portrays late nineteenth century life on the Great Prairie especially in Montana and Kansas. The story line is character and geographical-climatic driven as the audience obtains a taste of the era through simple interwoven into the plot nuances; for instance Cole¿s parents and his wife and children never met before implies distance (communication and transportation). Fans will cherish the finale as the extended cast provides depth and Dianne sees hope that her husband will come back to her and their children as THE HOPE WITHIN her remains strong because of her belief in God.......................

This is the 4th book in the Heirs of Montana Series by Tracie Peterson. I would recommend starting the series with Land of My Heart, the 1st book. I have enjoyed this series. I was drawn in by the characters and their story. This series is about family, friends, love, joy, sorrow...every day life and the struggles it brings.  I would love to see a sequel, but I realize there has to be an end at sometime. I would recommend this series  to anyone age 12 and above; however, if you have any aversion to Christian novels or any mention of religion, then this series isn't for you...OR, perhaps it is! Well done Ms. Peterson and I look forward to reading more of your books.

I really enjoyed the four books of 'Heirs of Montana'. I would recommend these books to anybody who enjoys reading christian/historical fiction. Tracie Peterson did a wonderful job writing these books and describing how life must have really been back in the homesteading days of the late 1880's.

The Hope Within was a great conclution to the Heirs of Montana. The only problem that I had with it was that the parts where Dianne was facing problems in Kansas lasted a little too long. Over all it was a great book with a perfect ending.
