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.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "On the Oregon Trail, the young, newly-widowed missionary Grace Martindale doesn't have the time, or desire, to mourn her deceased husband. Instead, she, her two sisters, and their caravan of settlers heading for Oregon must focus on the rising tensions with the local Indian tribes, and the outbreak of measles that hits both groups-settlers and natives-as they reach their post at the Whitman Mission. There, Grace utilizes her healing skills on the sick and confronts her fear of Indians, tasks in which trapper Alexander Armistead proves helpful. After a rough introduction romance sparks, but as Grace's feelings begin to grow Alexander's troubled past threatens their future. When another disaster strikes the mission, Alex, Grace, and her sisters are thrust into a journey through pain, doubt, and grief to healing. Peterson (Sapphire Brides series) powerfully depicts the challenges of life in the 19th-century American West, including a realistic picture of Indian-American relations. The girls' faith plays a prominent role-not only in their missionary work, but in how they recover from the trauma of the measles outbreak-and readers are treated to a clear gospel presentation arising from the characters' travails. In the end, the journey of faith and healing carries more weight than the romance does, shining spiritual hope onto worldly suffering. Fans of Peterson will welcome this opening story to the new Heart of the Frontier series. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
