Bestselling Author Unveils New Historical Series

Merrill Krause longs for a family of her own, but she's bound by a promise to her dying mother to care for her father and older brothers until they no longer need her. She enjoys being part of the family business, harvesting ice during the brutal Minnesota winters. Merrill actively takes part, possessing a keen ability to work with the horses--despite the advice of her good friend, who disapproves of her unladylike behavior.

When Rurik Jorgenson arrives in their small town to join his uncle doing carpentry, he soon crosses paths with Merrill. But unlike other men, who are often frightened away by her older brothers, Rurik isn't intimidated by them or by Merrill's strength and lack of femininity. As he thrives under the mentorship of his uncle, Rurik dreams of inheriting the business and claiming Merrill as his wife. But while he is determined to start a new life, the past is determined to follow him when his former fiancee and her brother show up in town. Soon Rurik is put in the center of a major scandal that may damage his relationship with Merrill. Can they learn to trust God--and each other--and embrace the promise of love?

disappointing
3 stars By Sarah, Oct 07 2013
In this first novel of a new series, Tracie explores the issues of honour and trust in the late 1800's. The two main character's Rurik and Merrill face hardship in understanding God's will and future for them when an old relationship threatens their future together and their livelihoods. 

I appreciated Tracie's ability to draw out the difficult issue of trust when friends let you down and the implications of doing what is right in God's eyes to restore broken relationships. However, I confess the book failed to keep my interest as some of her previous novels had. I found myself taking frequent reading breaks, instead of devouring the book in one or two sittings. The book was in my opinion too slow and drawn out.
