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 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.

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 novel. I thought I had found a new author. However, I didn't because this author's work is not worth 7.99 per book.

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.

But now that Lizzy is a grown woman her mothers was wanting her to join her in the fight for women's rights so she decided she would marry the first man that ask her just to prove that she didn't have to do as her Mother tried to make her.She had went to college and her friend Deborah was fixing to go home to Texas as soon as the wedding was over. Deborah talked Lizzy into not marring Stuart and catching the train to Texas with her, as her brother was waiting at the depot to take her home. Lizzy decided to leave instead of getting married so she went to Texas and met Deborah's bother G.W. This did not go over well with Stuart or her mother, but she really liked Texas and learned how to cook and do household chores.Soon Stuart and Lizzy's mother showed up and was determined to take Lizzy back to Philadelphia with them so much so they pretended that Lizzy and Stuart were married because of the papers they had signed before the wedding was to take place. This had Lizzy worried so she contacted her father and he found out she was not married.Does Lizzy stay in Texas or does her mother talk her into going back and have a marriage with no love.This book was a really good read, full of history, love and the right for women to vote. Thanks so much to Bethany House for sending me this copy to review.

Good read. A bit drawn out with a bunch of slow spots. Otherwise, a good read.

This was a religious based book that was the opposite of a page turner.
