“Treasured Grace” ~ Book Review

Apr 3, 2017 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Tracie Peterson’s book, Treasured Grace.

As is my custom, if I could ask Tracie one question about Treasured Grace it would be — “What drew you into writing about the frontier and the dangers associated with that?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!

And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position.

Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in “Oregon Country,” she decides to stay rather than push on.

With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills–or her presence–and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible

I loved this book and can actually say that I read it in it’s entirety in one sitting! Tracie created characters that I am now invested in and looking forward to seeing what happens to them in the rest of the series.

Grace is one of my favorite heroines! I loved her determination, her spunk, and her care that she showed to others around her. She was willing to listen to others and even change her mind if she knew she was wrong about something. She was also not afraid of protecting those she loved, and sometimes she would let all other reason go in order to do that.

And now enter Alex. He was Grace’s balance. He challenged her in her thinking, yet he encouraged her. Alex also protected Grace, and even if I was mildly mad at him for a time, as the story moved on, I loved that he felt that he had to deal with his past before feeling that he was free to love Grace.

The tension in this story was great and Tracie really highlighted on some of the very dangerous things that happened on the frontier!
