Hearts aglow and Hearts rekindled by Tracie Peterson

Titles:  Hearts aglow and Hope rekindled (Striking Match series)

Author:  Tracie Peterson

Collection:  Adult Fiction

I recently reviewed the first book in this series, Embers of Love, set in the 1880s. The story of the main character, Deborah Vandermark continues with a brutal attack on Sissy – once a slave and now friend of the Vandermark family – and her husband and son. Tension still run deep in this small logging Texan town, not so many years after the War Between the States.  With that, hurricanes, arsonists, family responsibilities, and old adversaries threatening to ruin the Vandermarks, Deborah questions her once unwavering faith and her desire to become a physician and wife to Dr. Clayton.

Although the series drags in a few places, and you wonder if Deborah and the Dr. will ever be together, the descriptions of a “genteel” era amidst violence are well written.
