Publisher's Description

Bestselling Author Unveils New Historical Series

Merrill Krause longs for a family of her own, but she's bound by a promise to her dying mother to care for her father and older brothers until they no longer need her. She enjoys being part of the family business, harvesting ice during the brutal Minnesota winters. Merrill actively takes part, possessing a keen ability to work with the horses--despite the advice of her good friend, who disapproves of her unladylike behavior.

When Rurik Jorgenson arrives in their small town to join his uncle doing carpentry, he soon crosses paths with Merrill. But unlike other men, who are often frightened away by her older brothers, Rurik isn't intimidated by them or by Merrill's strength and lack of femininity. As he thrives under the mentorship of his uncle, Rurik dreams of inheriting the business and claiming Merrill as his wife. But while he is determined to start a new life, the past is determined to follow him when his former fiancee and her brother show up in town. Soon Rurik is put in the center of a major scandal that may damage his relationship with Merrill. Can they learn to trust God--and each other--and embrace the promise of love?

    Hott Review:

    What I liked: I loved Tracie Petersons The Icecutters Daughter! This book is not only a great fiction novel, but it gives a great plan of salvation. It shows that Christians arent perfect but are constantly striving to be more. Plus, The Icecutters Daughter gives a great picture of how life was in the late 1800s. It was so interesting and showed different occupations that Id not considered previously.

    What I didnt like: I really didnt Svea or Nils! Im mot sure when Ive ever not liked a Christian character so intensely! Its a bit nerve-wracking!

    Tracie Peterson is my favorite Christian fiction author, and her latest historical novel, "The Icecutter's Daughter" does not disappoint. Set in Waseca, Minnesota in the winter of 1895-1896, the story focuses on Merrill Krause and Rurik Jorgenson. Merrill lives on a Belgian horse farm with her father and four brothers where they earn a living harvesting ice, logging, and freighting. Rurik moved to Minnesota from Kansas to assist his uncle with his furniture business.

    Prior to moving, Rurik and his fiancee dissolve their engagement. Their fathers arranged the match, and while Rurik desires to honor his deceased father's wishes, he can no longer hide that he simply does not love Svea Olsson the way that a husband should love his wife. A chance encounter brings Rurik and Merrill together and over the course of the next several months, they fall in love and begin to make tentative plans. The future is quickly put on hold when Svea and her older brother (and Rurik's best friend), Nils, show up, demanding that Rurik marry Svea. Scandal ensues and time begins to run out as they wait for truth to emerge. Will they ultimately learn to fully trust God in what appears to be a pretty dismal situation?

    I found this to be a wonderful story. The characters were rich and well developed. The plot was well thought out and had enough twists and turns to remain engaging the entire length of the novel. The end wraps up nicely with a wonderful subplot of forgiveness and redemption. This is a great first novel in the "Land of Shining Waters" series. I look forward to the next book that Peterson has in store for us!

    (I've received this complimentary book from Bethany House Publishers through the Book Blogger program in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required and the views expressed in my review are strictly my own.)

    I enjoyed learning about the icecutting process and history of this time period was a great book I could not put down until it was finished. Story very well written.

    The Icecutter's Daughter by Tracie Peterson is a great read. It is the first book in the Land of Shining Water series. As the only daughter in her home, Merrill is kept busy taking care of her father and brothers and not much time to prepare to be a bride as most girls her age. God took care of that for her. Merril and Rurik work through the problems of town gossip and hurt and learn to forgive. I hated to have the story end and am so glad that I have the second book in the series ready to be read.
