The Inspiring Conclusion to Tracie Peterson's Heart of the Frontier Series

Mercy Flanagan survived the Whitman Massacre as a child, and now her heart's cry is for peace between the native peoples and the white settlers inhabiting Oregon Territory. Unfortunately, most of the settlers would rather the tribes were removed from the land completely, one way or the other, and tensions are rising. Mercy has grown tired of Oregon City and feels that she has a larger purpose in life, so when she learns that family friend Eletta Browning is pregnant, she travels south to the Rogue River Valley to help.

At the Rogue River Mission, Mercy meets Eletta's brother-in-law, Adam, who has suffered a broken engagement. Mercy finds him attractive, but Adam seems determined to focus on ministering to the local tribes and keeps Mercy at arm's length.

When tragedy strikes and tensions in the territory reach the boiling point, Mercy is pushed to the limit of her strength. She and Adam must rely on their firm faith in God in order to make it out alive.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the dynamic conclusion to Peterson's Heart of the Frontier series, Mercy Flanagan has matured into a strong yet tender-hearted midwife eager to help the weak and defend the downtrodden. Childhood trauma suffered during the 1847 Whitman Massacre in Oregon helped develop her love for the Indians and desire to see peace between them and the white settlers. Despite fears of violence, she moves away from her sisters to help their pregnant friend Eletta, who has been weakened by illness, and meets Eletta's brother-in-law Adam. Though an earlier broken engagement initially makes Adam cautious about opening up to Mercy, they come to depend on one another when hostilities break out between the local militia and the friendly Tututni tribe. Peterson excels at painting a scene, bringing alive both the rugged frontier landscape and the people in conflict over it. Mercy and Adam, along with her sisters Grace and Hope (best discovered in the two earlier books in the series), put feet to faith as they follow God's will through emotional and physical danger. This is a powerful completion to an engaging, spiritually sensitive series. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
