This is the first of three. You start caring for them right away. Which for me is important. Loved this book and the next two are just as good if not better. Kept you guessing in this one just like with the next two. Must read

If Christian morals, romance, and humor are a must have in books before you read them, then A Promise to Believe In is your ideal novel. Tracie Peterson does a wonderful job describing the wild yet peaceful Montana landscape to her readers. Three dedicated sisters work together to make a living after their father was accidently shot by a drunken man. This creates a great and effective attention getter for the story. Beth and Lacy give Hank a hard time in an attempt to make him leave the Gallatin House therefore giving the novel a comical and entertaining aspect. I enjoy the love story between Gwen and Hank as well as the Christian values the sisters stay committed to throughout the story. I also like how each character has some sort of difficult problem in their life in which they must accept God as their Savior or in Gwen’s case, pray and trust Him again. I definitely look forward to reading the second and third books of this amazing trilogy!

Gwendolyn Gallatin is a woman haunted by her past. She thinks she's cursed, and it basically foreshadows her relationships. She's a kind, caring woman who also feels the need to take over the responsibility of her two wayard sisters. Especially after their father dies. Hank Bishop is a man on a mission. He leaves his home in the east to track down his younger brother, Harvey, who has stolen some valuable belongings from their family. Little does he know his younger brother is dead. When he reaches Montana and finds out the news, he's shocked. Still determined to find the things his brother stole, Hank presses on to where his deceased brother's wife lives. This book was very hard to put down. I loved reading, and don't mind reading it over and over again. I highly recommend reading the other two books in this series after you finish this one. Brides of Gallatin County series feels real while you read it and it's like you're actually there.

Amazing Book! I could not put it down. As soon as I finished this book, I had to rush out to get the next two. I love all of Tracie Peterson's books, but this series is the best of all!!

Every time Tracie Peterson announces she has a new book coming out, I immediately go and put it on my wish list. She is one of those authors whom I have read every book and is pretty much a standard in Christian fiction. Everything I always like about Tracie's books is included in this one as well. From the detailed historical research to wonderful character development to that comfort feeling you get while reading her books, it's all here. The sisters run a boarding house/restaurant/coach stop that is very similar to the Fred Harvey system used out west. It's a very well run operation and the women are highly respected in town which is unusual for the time period. I liked all three sisters and found them very similar to the way my own family acts. I found the laudanum scene very funny although I can't believe that it didn't enter any one's head that it might have been dangerous! The situation between Harvey and Gwen's late husband was really interesting and I kept going back on forth on whether I believed him or not. Although I felt that a lot of that drama could have been avoided if he had just told her that one thing she had been looking for. My only qualm with this book was that the storyline seemed a little slow at times. It wasn't that it was boring. I just felt that certain scenes tended to drag at times, and there was a lot of dialogue that could have been taken out. Also Hank and Gwen, while they had good chemistry, just seemed to magically fall in together. It was like banter one minute, lovey-dovey the next. I would have liked some more development than the cliched falling in love with a stranger story. Overall though, I greatly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the other Gallatin sisters' adventures. It's a fun read that will take you back to the romantic West.

Absolutely the very best that I have read from Tracie Peterson so far. "A Promise to Believe In" is creative, moving, funny, adventurous, and endearing. I just loved it. It had all of the elements that I have come to love of historical novels from Tracie Peterson.

In many historicals, a reader can find a novel telling the story of three characters, in this case sisters, and then the next two books in the trilogy will continue the story of a different character. This is the first book that I have read that I knew was more about one sister than the others, but it did not feel that way. I got some insight and background on each sister and was feeling for them and loving them all from the beginning in different ways, yet not more than the other. It makes me even more excited for the continuing books that I would have been otherwise.

Gwen Gallatin learns or at least God attempts to put her in positions to learn of his love and grace and this book is a fabulous tool to learn some pure motives to check your own thoughts and opinions of yourself and those around you.

An absolutely pleasure filled read full of the glory and grace of God in the characters and their actions. I can definitely see a continuing story building of how good will triumph in the name of God. Keep the books coming Tracie, I want more!!

I loved this sweet story about sisters, romance, and fun set in historical Montana. As usual, Peterson gives readers a book filled with romance and heart - one that we can feel good about sharing with our daughters.

I thought this story would never end, kept reading to see how it ended. A huge disappointment. I'm a religious person but to many repeatedly talking about same problems.

And I loved the believable characters. Several of them reminded me of folks I know in my own life. I have to go now and buy the next, but thanks for offering this one as a "freebie".

I really like reading this book. The characters were inline with that period of time. The plot was interesting and this is a must to read.

This story is quite nice. I love that the author has confidence in their writing ability and refrained from adding sex to their story, which would have cheapened it. The story is rich in details and simply shines. Nicely done! ***esk 01/2017***
