Hello, everyone. Here’s the review that has been long over due. 🙂 Today we are going to look at one of the newest books from Tracie Peterson.
First of all, I’m not new to Tracie Peterson. I have read some of her previous works many years before I’ve started this blog. I have enjoyed her writing and this book has not disappointed me and my expectations.
Heart of Alaska Book 2- Out of the Ashes- is a great novel, set in 1925 Curry, Alaska, a compilation from Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse. If you have followed along, you will remember Allan and Cassidy’s budding relationship from the last book. Here we still get to see how Cassidy and Allan are doing with their marriage, but we get to meet three new characters, Jean- Michel Langelier and his sister, Collette, along with Katherine Demarchis.
Cassidy and Allan have been married about 2 years. Their relationship continues to be a loving one with God the center of their lives. Cassidy is always busy helping Mrs. Johnson in the kitchen. Cassidy has noticed a unusual tiredness and dizzy spells when we see her again. Cassidy soon finds out that she is pregnant with her and Allan’s first child. Both parents are very excited, as well as the tough Mrs. Johnson. Cassidy soon becomes an emotional roller coaster and tries to pray for the Lord to guide her in her tough time.
Jean-Michel Langlier and his sister, Collette, have just lost their father and are both grieving. His father, in his will, suggested that Jean-Michel and Collette go on a trip around the world. Jean- Michel has been battling with, what we would say today Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He cannot escape the haunting recurrent nightmares and doesn’t feel that a trip should happen. As well, his sister Collette is very wayward and he has no idea what his father wanted him to do. All his father said was to seek God, but how can he seek God and guide his sister, when Jean- Michel doesn’t know what to do himself. However, Jean-Michel receives a letter from his former love’s, Katherine Demarchis, grandmother,Mrs. Harrison. In the letter, she expresses her growing concern for her granddaughter and her abusive marriage (Katherine’s husband has died) and feels that if Katherine would see Jean-Michel, she would open her heart to love again.
Will Jean-Michel and Katherine be able to heal from their wounds?Will all three individuals find their way to God and will they open their hearts to love again? I guess you are going to have to grab a copy for yourself. 🙂
Lastly, I’d like to thank, Bethany House Publishers for giving me a complimentary copy and the chance to read this book for my honest opinion! This book has been awesome and I look forward for the next edition.
