My Review

Finishing the last book of this series "A Dream to Call My Own" by Tracie Peterson, I have truly enjoyed reading the novel.  Coming to the last novel in the series, Lacy Gallatin is a determined woman in search of her father's killer, though she is constantly battling a desire for something more than just revenge on the killer.  Deputy Dave Shepard is a young sheriff for Gallatin Crossing in Montana.  He is trying to help Lacy to find her father's killer, but when it comes to Lacy if feels it is not enough in what he is doing.

Through the story Lacy and Dave's relationship grows in very unique way.  There is usually some sort of tension between them.  Soon Dave proposes to Lacy in marrying him, but after she said "yes", Lacy is starting to have some doubt or more like fears are coming into her mind.   As time goes on, she keeps on holding off the wedding date because she feels she won't be able to go on life without finding her father's killer and so many questions pop into her mind that keeps her in fear with lots of confusion about her feelings for Dave.  See how Dave tries to help her through facing her fear, and how God shows Lacy through His word that there is nothing to fear because God is always with her.  Great adventure and suspense happens throughout the whole entire story.  Have to read it to find out what happens!

My Review

Reading "A Promise To Believe In" by Tracie Peterson has a lot of faith, hope, romance, mystery and laughter. This story takes you back to the 1870s in Montana!  Three sisters (Gwen, Beth, and Lacy Gallatin) have a life in the Montana wilds by operating a roadhouse and now are trying to maintain after a tragity of their father who is accidentally killed.  Gwen Gallatin, the oldest sister, believes it is her fault because she believes she is cursed (death by whom she loves).  A few days later the sisters get an unexpected visitor, Hank Bishop, who basically adds to the chaos around the roadhouse. Hank comes by in searching for possessions of Gwen’s late husband, who obviously had stolen important things from his family.

Gwen and Hank work out details of the past of Gwen’s late husband of who is supposedly Hank’s younger brother. Truth and lies arise between Gwen and Hank as matters are discussed. Read how Gwen and Hank’s relationship grows, in trusting in the one another, caring for each other, and how they could possibly love each other with all their heart. Throughout the story, see how Gwen is told that one is not cursed if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, and that Jesus who became a curse has taken away our sins.  I’d recommend getting “A Promise To Believe In” that has a very good message!
