Beloved Hope Book Review


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Hope Flanagan survived the massacre the Cayuse Indians initiated at Whitman Mission. She endured a great deal at the hands of the Cayuse and is unsure how life will work out on her behalf. Safe in Oregon City her heart and soul are slowly healing after the aftermath. Will she have to testify as to what the Cayuse did and result in her undoing?


          Army Lieutenant Lance Kenner is a ray of light to Hope. He helps her in her hour of need, being the kind of man who seeks friendship. But in the process learns someone from his past may wreck any chance he has with Hope. Can he withstand his heart's desire for revenge?

          Tracie Peterson has written a beautiful book that features a rich and vibrant history not just for Oregon City but what happened at the Whitman Mission where men and women and children were slaughtered. Her descriptions are crisp and clear. Her writing style shows how well she understands her characters and her understanding of history. While it is a fictional account of several people she's adding to the narrative, she does so with an artist's touch.

          Tracie Peterson has written over one hundred novels and was a recipient of the 2011 American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) Lifetime Achievement Award. She has a love for history and research that fuels her bestselling stories.

          I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for my honest review.
