If you read book number then you are familiar with Hope's back story. The author handled Hope's story with great sensitivity which I was very please with. Hope ran the gambit of emotions, but she was also honest with God about them and let God begin to heal her.
I thought that Hope and Lance were a wonderful couple. They made a very believable couple and Lance was a big help in Hope's healing process, helping her learn how to trust again and how to able to love again . He was so good for her.
Woven into the story is Hope's sisters Grace and Mercy which is always adds to the story in my opinion.
As with her other books the author brings a book full of God and scripture and faith. This is a book that I would not hesitate to give to anyone.

This was such a powerful book! Tracie really touched on some hard to grasp ideas and really took the reader through an emotional journey with Hope. When I finished book 1, I wondered what would happen to Hope. Beloved Hope gives the reader and sense of peace after the read about all the horrors that Hope had to go through.
I enjoyed seeing how Hope matured through this book. Hope always seemed like a self-centered person and then she was really put through the wringer which made her heart very hard. Hope went through some major heart changes to thaw out all the hurt and bitterness she accumulated. It was truly a beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness.
And then theres Lance. Lance had to go through a lot of his own issues with bitterness, but he also grew a lot in this book. It was neat to see how Lance and Hope helped each other get through difficult periods of their past and then came to a beautiful love story in return.
It was also great to read more about Grace, Alex, and Mercy! And I am so excited to read Mercys story as well!
I received a free copy from the author. No review, positive or otherwise, was required all opinions are my own.

I am loving this series! It continues the plot line of Treasured Grace and is just as entertaining as the first book in the series. Hope is dealing with so many emotions and needs lots of healing after her horrible experience concerning the Indian attack in the previous book. Along comes this wonderful guy and the story races on. I can't wait to see what happens next! The next book should be about Mercy.
This book was provided in exchange for an honest review from Bethany House.
kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Healing for HopeSeptember 6, 2017kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book picked up the story of the three sisters that we met in Treasured Grace and continues it, with Hope as the main character. She is still hurting, bitter, and fearful as a result of the attack on the Whitman Mission. This story was more character-driven than action-filled, but there were some suspenseful moments. Justice was served to some of the perpetrators of the Whitman Mission Massacre, a horrific event, but author Tracie Peterson deals with it delicately and appropriately. It is a story of hope; seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of despair.
I thought it was great that the story for each of the sisters continued, which gave cohesion to the series. This novel could be read as a stand-alone, though.
Fans of "prairie" fiction will enjoy this tale, set in Oregon in the 1850s.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.
