Description of Story
Tracie Peterson Begins Compelling New Series Set on the 1840s Frontier.
Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position.
Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in “Oregon Country,” she decides to stay rather than push on.
With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills–or her presence–and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible.
This book is the 1st book in Heart of the Frontier Series by Tracie Peterson. This book is one of the greatest books I have read by Tracie Peterson. The one thing I loved about this book was the sisters names.
The story starts with Grace Martindale and her 2 sisters, Hope and Mercy Martindale heading west on a wagon train so to speak. They are on their way from Back East to Oregon to meet up with their uncle in Oregon City, Oregon. As the story starts out, Grace loses her husband and she helps other people on the trail. Then they all make it to Dr. Whitman’s mission and Grace and her sisters decide to stay at the mission. The doctor doesn’t like some of the things that Grace does with medicinal issues she has picked up from her deceased mother.
As the story goes, her and her 2 sisters stay at the mission and come to find out, their uncle is not in Oregon City so they decide to stay there. As the story goes, Grace meets up with Alex Armistead, a trapper and sparks begin to fly. This is all I am going to say about this book or I will ruin it for you. This is a GREAT book and one that you will enjoy especially if you like Tracie Peterson as much as I do.
I would suggest this book and this series to my friends and family. Again, it is just GREAT, I couldn’t hardly put this book down. Wonderful story. Thank you Tracie Peterson for giving us such a GREAT book. Thank you Bethany House for giving me an opportunity to read this book and give my review.
