NoreenColoradoAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Accurate Portrayal of Early San FranciscoMarch 22, 2018NoreenColoradoAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved Tracie's newest book in the Golden Gate series for many reasons~her characters are always rich and developed and her description of the setting accurate and inviting. Since my own grandparents emigrated from Ireland to San Francisco in the early 1900's, I found the story line intriguing. This story tackles some hard issues like prejudice, sex slavery and women's rights. It was a great book and I look forward to more in her series.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing. No review, positive or otherwise was required; all opinions are my own.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging Historical FictionMarch 20, 2018Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Places Hidden by Tracie Peterson is book one in the Golden Gate Secrets series. The Coulter family have not heard from their son and brother for three months. He typically sends them letters regularly and this is alarming for the family. The parents have become ill so the younger daughter, Camrainne, goes to San Francisco to search for him. On her travel there she meets two other young ladies also going to San Francisco for various reasons. Kenzie's fiance has canceled their wedding and Judith is in search of an aunt she never knew. Together the girls work at Kenzie's uncle chocolate factory, saving money to search for Caleb Coulter.
Caleb is an attorney that represented Patrick for a false murder charge. Shortly after he goes missing. While Camri's is searching for him, she meets Patrick and his sister and become friends with them. Patrick helps Camri in her search for her brother. He takes a job at a local hotel where men are drugged and women are held again their wishes.
This is a great story that is hard to put down. There are a lot of characters but they are well introduced and easy to follow. The story is so well written it was easy to imagine the tremors the city felt as well as the stench of the run down area of town. In this story we see the change that takes place in Camri as she gets to know the other ladies. She once felt everyone should want an education and it would make a better life for them. Kenzie and Judith help her see that some women just want a husband and a family and that is not wrong. This story also points out the way the Chinese and the Irish were treated and looked down on, even blamed for situations out of their control.
I think anyone who enjoys reading historical fiction will enjoy this story. It is a good clean story that is encouraging and enjoyable to read. The story has adventure and suspense with a touch of romance. Another thing I really enjoy about this series is that the rest of the books will be out this year, so no long wait to read them.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishing. This is my honest review.
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Complex characters, nice historical tie-ins, and some mystery/adventureMarch 16, 2018Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"In Hidden Places" is a Christian romance set in 1905 in San Francisco. The story follows three women--Camri, Judith, and Kenzie--but this book mainly focused on Camri's search for her missing brother.
The characters were well-developed, complex people who grew throughout the story. Camri was brought up in a progressive household that promoted education and women's rights. Now Camri gets to know people with different priorities or who are dealing with things like racial prejudice, where education isn't primarily what's needed or wanted.
Her brother has angered the corrupt, powerful men of the city, but it's not clear if he's alive somewhere or dead or even who is behind his disappearance. His friends help Camri in her search for her brother. In the end, it's clear that God has been working behind the scenes to bring about good from what was intended for evil.
The historical and setting details were naturally woven into the story. This is the type of story that feels like it really could have happened. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd highly recommend this enjoyable story.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley.
Grams5 Stars Out Of 5This book has it all.March 7, 2018GramsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Set in San Francisco in 1905, In Places Hidden has it all: history, mystery, romance, and social justice. Tracie Peterson never fails to entertain while challenging readers to think deeply about their faith. This story has the reader pondering the degree to which he or she is willing to see God and to serve Him in the words of circumstances. She asks us to see the world and set priorities with a Kingdom view, a view that looks past next week, even past a lifetime, into eternity.
In Places Hidden is the first book in Peterson's Golden Gate Secrets series. The series follows three young women, each coming to San Francisco with a goal in mind. This first book focuses on Camri Coulter who has come to the city to search for her missing brother, attorney Caleb Coulter. She is assisted in her search by new friends, Judith Gladstone and Kenzie Gifford, along with Caleb's friend, and former client, Patrick Murdoch. The search moves from Caleb's fashionable neighborhood to poverty-stricken ones to the infamous Barbary Coast. Camri, an advocate for education and women' rights, comes face to face with her own biases as her eyes are opened to the needs of others, and as her view of what comprises an education broadens.
I highly recommend In Places Hidden, and look forward to reading Judith's story when the second book in this series is released. I appreciate NetGalley and Bethany House Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for this review.
