When Alice Chesterfield’s family is broken apart and she suffers an attack in which her father is killed, her hope is also killed. She carries a physical scar from the attack, but the emotional scars that she bears are traumatic. Her father had secrets that brought ruin to them. The attacker continues to pursue her, demanding what she does not have to give. Left with nothing but memories and unanswered questions, she accepts the offer of a new life in Texas, in the hope that she can escape the assailant’s threats. She boards a train with her friend Marty, who is moving back to her family’s ranch. There she meets an intriguing man that may bring a life with everything she dreams of, but he is seemingly spoken for. This story of tragedy and its aftermath is well written and realistic. Tracy Peterson has spun a tale of hurt and forgiveness that pictures what happens when we get in God’s way and what wonderful things can happen when we step back and wait for our Heavenly Father to work in His most perfect time. A Moment in Time is a gentle reminder that allows the reader to ponder the gift of grace and forgiveness and how we must give ourselves, as well as others in our life, those gifts. It is easy to read and has enough depth that I was eager to keep reading. This is Book #2 of the Lone Star Brides saga. I think I should read the first book in this series! I can highly recommend this and I give it five stars!
I received a copy of this book free of charge from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review. This review is my opinion.
Please return the end of this week for a special Father's Day blog. I will be reviewing a debut novel by a talented new author. Hope you can make it!
