(Heart of the Frontier)
By: Tracie Peterson
Publisher: Bethany House
Hope Flanagan, along with her sisters, Mercy and Grace survived the massacre at the Whitman Mission, but Hope has suffered more than the others. She and her sisters have settled in Organ City where she tends sheep and feels some degree of safety until she is asked to testify again the Cayuse Indians responsible for the massacre. She is not sure she can tell her story, or find peace, because she cannot forget or forgive.
Army Lieutenant, Lance Kenner, becomes her friend and helps her to heal and find peace and learn that she is still able to love.
Although this is the second book in the series, you will not need to read the first book, however it would be best if you did because you will want to read it to get the background for the whole story of the massacre.
Keep the tissue box close by because there will be tears as Hope struggles to learn to forgive and love again as she regains her faith in God. This book will not only capture your heart, but will also hold your attention from beginning to end.
