ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great descriptions, characters, and message!June 30, 2014ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4As I stated at the beginning, I am a huge fan of Tracie Peterson. Her books are always good and entertaining. I've not read one that I haven't enjoyed. Summer of the Midnight Sun was no exception. The story is set in the beautiful and rugged Alaska. Tracie Peterson's description of the land and the ways of life of the people who lived it back then is phenomenal. She makes the setting come to life and become an integral part of the story. I could picture the land and the story taking place as I was reading, which I really enjoy!
The characters were well-written, but I feel their development was shallow. Both Leah and Jacob are strong Christian characters already, so there wasn't much development for them. Leah does grow up throughout the story and you can see her mature to her thirty years. Jacob struggles with his faith a little when he meets Helaina, but overall he kept his feet on solid ground. Jayce's development could have been so much more! At the beginning of the story, we learn that he is a new Christian. I didn't feel like he learned or grew much throughout the story. The biggest development was in Helaina. Though she hasn't come to fully except anything, she is beginning to question herself and her beliefs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations between Jacob and Helaina. While some might view this story as a bit preachy, I didn't. We could all follow Jacob's example of witnessing to Helaina. Forgiveness and trust are also present messages in the story. Overall, this was a good read. I would recommend it to any Tracie Peterson fan!

Rebecca Adams5 Stars Out Of 5February 6, 2008Rebecca AdamsReally enjoyed the book. I highly recommend all Tracie Peterson's novels. I purchased all three books in the Alaskan Quest series as each book interweaves with the others. In fact, this series follows the Yukon Quest series.
April4 Stars Out Of 5May 8, 2007AprilJacob Barringer is one of the better male characters Ive read. Hes adventurous, confident, and loyal, but hes got a little problem with saying exactly whats on his mind, even if its not the most appropriate thing at the time. I liked thatmaybe because I can relate!On the other hand, Helaina Beecham--the young investigator mentioned aboverubbed me entirely the wrong way. She causes all sorts of problems for the other main characters. An unbeliever on a mission to rid the world of evil, she has questionable strategies. The author uses Helainas and Jacobs differing opinions on justice and mercy to give a clear presentation of the Gospel, making this book a great gift for a lost friend. For a Christian, though, it was a bit skimable during those sections.If youre looking for a learning experience in the early 1900s Alaskan frontier, youve come to the right place. Peterson paints a beautiful picture of the tundra and its people. America is debating whether to join World War I, and Alaska isnt even a state yet. It makes for a very fresh setting.The end of the book is left wide open for the next in the series, and I plan on getting on that right away.Although, I found it a little predictable, its worth the read.
