CHASING THE SUN
From page one, this book hooks the reader with unique characters and enjoyable prose. Peterson thoughtfully addresses several deep issues and has a way of making stories come to life through her historical fiction. Love and faith messages shine through.
With Hannah’s father missing and the responsibility of her younger siblings falling solely on her shoulders, Hannah is determined to avoid a marriage of convenience, instead relying on God to show her direction. When William Barnett returns home from the war he discovers that Hannah and her family are living on his ranch. His initial reaction is anger, but he soon realizes that working together with Hannah to run the ranch might actually be where his future lies. (BETHANY HOUSE, Feb., 352 pp., $14.99)
