Review: Beloved Hope by:Tracie Peterson

 Beloved Hope (Heart of the Frontier #2)
About the Book:
A Compelling Novel of Forgiveness and Hope from Leading Author Tracie Peterson

Hope Flanagan survived the massacre at the Whitman Mission, but at terrible personal cost. Safe now in Oregon City, she lives with her sisters, Grace and Mercy, and Grace's new husband, Alex. As she spends her days tending their flock of sheep, Hope's mind and soul are slowly healing. Yet, though she was once surrounded by suitors, she has no interest in giving her heart again after the man she loved died in her arms.

Hope's precarious new peace is shattered when those responsible for the massacre are captured and put on trial. She is asked to testify against them, but she's not sure she can bear to relive the events of those horrific days.

As Hope struggles to free herself from the pain of her past, Lance Kenner, an Army lieutenant, brings an unexpected ray of light into her life. But what will Lance think of her if he learns the truth behind her anguish? And what secrets lie in his past?


My Review:
 Poor Hope Flanagan, she is always looking onward and upward but lately its getting harder and harder to do. She survived a massacre some years back but it didn't come and go without a cost to her and reliving the pain comes easier than just moving on like it never happened. If this poor girl has not endured enough, there is a trail taking that brings the evil of that time back to her mind and heart. Things happened there that she would like to forget, but forgetting seems such a foreign concept at this day and time.

 Soon after Hope practically waves any hope of potential suitors away there is a man this will step into her life that doesn't want to step out, a man that won't give up so easily. Lance will have to get through a lot of pain and torment that Hope holds deep inside. Lance will also have to reveal to a very scared, heartbroken young lady the secrets he holds in his  heart, as well.

 Beloved Hope, is a great historical fiction novel that combines history with long awaited love after a heartbreak so big that it will be a miracle that it gets repaired. Beloved Hope is part of the Heart of the Frontier series.
