Book Review-Refining Fire by Tracie Peterson


Refining Fire
(Brides of Seattle #2)
By:  Tracie Peterson
Publisher:  Bethany House

Another great Historical romance by Tracie Peterson.

Once again we find ourselves back at the Madison Bridal School in Seattle, where outspoken Abrianna Cunningham, ward of the “aunts” who owns the school, continues fighting for her beliefs.  This book focuses on Militine Scott and Thane Patton.  Although Militine is a resident of the school, she has no intention of becoming anyone’s wife.  She feels her past would keep any self-respecting man from loving her.  However when she meets Thane…just maybe…there is hope for a future…IF…Thane can accept his past.

Now that Lenore from the first book in the series, “Steadfast Heart” is safely married, Abrianna finds herself drawn to helping Militine Scott.  In the midst of a battle of Theology and faith with the new pastor of her church, she feels it is God’s calling for her to bring food, comfort and God’s love to the less unfortunate of the Wharf area in Seattle. She insists Militine, Thane and Wade help her because she can’t do it unescorted.  Through Abrianna’s faith and God’s love showing in her life she is not only able to minister to the less fortunate, but also to Militine and Thane.  She is able to help them restore their faith in God.  Also on this journey there are a couple of surprises for Abrianna.  So not to give it away we will just leave it at that.   Although this book is filled with romance, it is also packed with love, forgiveness and faith.  The characters are so well developed and their situations so real-life you will find yourself quickly becoming part of the story. 

You do not need to read the first book in the series to become familiar with the characters of this book, but I am sure it will be added to your reading list once you have completed this one. 

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Bethany House, through their blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
