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?

    "The Icecutter's Daughter" is a Christian romance set in 1896 in Minnesota. The hero and heroine meet, respect each other, and are interested in getting to know each other better when a misunderstanding pushes them apart. Once that misunderstanding is cleared up, they declare their love yet still hardly know each other. While they do seem well-suited for each other, I'd have liked more scenes showing the romantic duo getting to know each other.

    My main problem was actually in how little I understood the villains. It was clear from the start that the hero's best friend and fiancee were completely self-centered and very manipulative. When they showed up later, it was no secret that they intended to cause him trouble (so much so that I could accurately predict what did happen). My first question was how this disgusting fellow ever became our hero's _best_ friend when the hero didn't have trouble making friends with nice people. My second was why the hero seemed surprised and baffled by their behavior when he knew their character.

    Finally, it makes no sense that the hero didn't tell the heroine in private that he wasn't engaged BEFORE he started showing his interest in her. He had to realize this would look dishonorable as long as she and her family believed he was betrothed to another.

    There were some details about ice-cutting, but not enough to clearly visualize how it was done. The focus seemed more on the changing technology that would soon replace jobs like ice-cutting and raising draft horses. The Christian theme was to trust God to bring the truth to light even when things look like that won't happen. There was no sex or bad language.

    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!
