Tracie Peterson


Tracie Peterson is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than 85 novels.

She received her first book contract in November, 1992 and saw A Place To Belong published in February 1993 with Barbour Publishings' Heartsong Presents. She wrote exclusively with Heartsong for the next two years, receiving their readership's vote for Favorite Author of the Year for three years in a row.

In December, 1995 she signed a contract with Bethany House Publishers to co-write a series with author Judith Pella. Tracie now writes exclusively for Bethany House Publishers.

She teaches writing workshops at a variety of conferences on subjects such as inspirational romance and historical research.

Tracie was awarded the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for 2007 Inspirational Fiction and her books have won numerous awards for favorite books in a variety of contests.

Making her home in Montana, this Kansas native enjoys spending time with family--especially her three grandchildren--Rainy, Fox and Max. She's active in her church as the Director of Women's Ministries, coordinates a yearly writer's retreat for published authors, and travels, as time permits, to research her books.


When her father orchestrates a surprise trip to the summer house of her childhood, Bailee Cooper is unprepared for what follows. What is intended to be a happy reunion for Bailee and her sisters, Geena and Piper, quickly becomes shrouded by memories from the past.

Together again, the three sisters sift through their recollections of fifteen years ago...of an ill mother, and of their father making a desperate choice. They vowed, as children, to be silent--but one sister believes the truth must now be revealed. Yet can they trust their memories?

Mark Delahunt arrives in the wake of this emotional turmoil. Determined to win Bailee's affection, Mark becomes the strong fortress for her in this time of confusion, and what was once a tentative promise begins to take root and grow. Caught between the past and an uncertain future, can Bailee let God guide her to heal the past and ultimately to embrace love?

MY REVIEW-I used to be a big fan of Tracie Peterson. Then she got into some books that I just could not get in to! I don't know if it was me or what. But this book actually pulled me back into her writing world. I could not believe how fast I read this book! I finished it in less than a day and I kept reading it and reading it:)

My favorite character is the main one, Bailee. I had a hard time though between her and Mark. He is such a sweetheart and knows how to rely on the Lord for what he says and what he does. Always there for Bailee and I was just waiting for her to push him away. Which she does but I was just rooting for him:) Tracie deals with a delicate subject in this book and does very well with it. The whole family has gone through so much and every chapter brought a new surprise! A novel full of mystery and surprise! Way to go Tracie! Loved this book:)

I received a copy for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation and all thoughts are 100% mine.

I didn't sign up to review this one, because of the 'delicate' subject matter... didn't want to have to struggle with writing a positive review, just in case!

But, your review sounds great! I'm number 1 or 2 on the WL for hopefully a copy will be posted soon! :-)
