Another Great Book
Tracie Peterson has done an award winning job writing the second book in her Land of Shining Water series. Tracie is one of my all time favorite authors and this series is right up there on top, in my humble opinion. With having a busy life, I love picking up books that whisk me away to another time and place. The Quarryman's Bride is the story of an engaged couple, deeply in love, that face a family tragedy and the hardship ends their engagement. The story is filled with authentic compromises that young woman would have faced during the late 1800's. Tracie weaves scripture and biblical principles throughout her stories; another thing I love about her writing. For so many of you, summer ushers in a very busy time; however if you find you might have a chance to pick up a book-say to read during sports activities or nap time, by all means find this new book. I am so glad to know that book three will be released in August. I always feel like I've spent time with a good friend when I read Tracie's books. I love her graphic descriptions of the land and its hardships, as well as its beauty.
I would like to thank Bethany House for the privilege of participating in their Book Review program. I received this book, free of charge, for my honest review.
I'm off walking again this morning as well as a bike ride~we will ride at least 5 miles, unless I can talk Kam into more. For many of you who happen to think I'm in such good shape or so dedicated, well thank you for the compliment. However, I must say I am not in good shape, at all, and feel that I have to ride to try and get back into shape. The older I get, the harder it is to stay in shape.
Blessings on your day today! Noreen & a very tired Hunter
