    What are the differences that separate the beliefs of Jews and Christians? Does the Bible warn not to be unequally yoked and if so, does that apply to Jews and Christians? My Valentine by Tracie Peterson is a heartwarming regency romance between Darlene Lewy, raised a Jew her entire life that lives with her father Abraham and Pierce Blackwell, a Christian young man who has recently arrived in New York with his father.

    At the height of the season, Pierce comes to Lewy and Company with his father to get some suits made in time for the Valentine's Day ball. In order to expedite things in acquiring what he needs over trying to find suitable attire somewhere else, he is enchanted when he meets with Darlene who is trying to figure out just why her father and Dennison Blackwell are having discussions over the differences in their religious faiths. Darlene is concerned because if Abraham leaves his faith as a Jew, the entire Jewish community will ostracize them and stop doing business with them. It will also impact her future as well in the community, not that someone like the Blackwell would have any romantic interest in her as suitable match. The one thing Darlene didn't expect is that she would be caught overhearing their conversation and find herself trying to explain things to Pierce.

    Pierce's Aunt has just the right girl in mind for Pierce from just the right family and when she arranges to have them meet at a Bachelor's auction, the only girl he can't get off his mind is Darlene. Even he knows however that unless she is a Christian, there will never be any hope for anything more than a business relationship between them. But will the changes Darlene sees in her father, cause her to consider that perhaps Jesus Christ is the Messiah promised to come by the Jewish people after all?

    I received My Valentine by Tracie Peterson compliments of Barbour Publishing and Net Galley. I absolutely loved seeing the various differences between the Jews and Christians in regards to their religious rituals and how they interpret the Bible. I love how the Blackwells are invited to participate in the Passover meal and how they are so impressed by how the Lewy's remember the blessings of God saving his people during Passover. In addition to this novel, readers are also treated to a bonus book, Little Shoes and Mistletoe by Sally Laity inside. This is the story of Eliza Criswell that moves in with her Aunt Phoebe at Harper House after her fianc Weston runs off with her best friend. She just doesn't expect to fall for someone who looks identical to him while working for her Aunt! Both books earn an equal 5 out of 5 stars in this reader's opinion.

    Two gentle romances set in 19th century New York City, reminiscent of the style of Grace Livingston Hill. The gentlemen and ladies in these well-written stories have noble character, integrity, and faith that moves them to act honorably. They are both tender tales that have strong spiritual themes. The first one has some interesting theological discussions among a Jewish family and a Christian one, overlapping their faiths. The time period of 1835 was unique, with a lot of cultural prejudice and class distinction, especially among the old NY elite.

    The second story takes place sixty plus years later when New York City was bursting at the seams, and poverty a growing problem. The main characters feel led to reach out to help children left on their own, putting their faith into action. Some good examples of how God works all things for good, and how He does not abandon His children.

    Recommend to readers who enjoy a tender historical Christian romance.

    (Both stories have been previously published.)

    (Book provided by NetGalley and the publisher. This is my original, honest review.)

    Read all of her historical fiction books and was waiting to read her others. Nice story about two people who are of different faiths . One being Jewish and the other Christian.. Falling in love but knowing they could not be together because of there faith. It was well written and a lot of information on the Jewish faith and traditions and the meaning behind there Passover. I felt I learned a lot..
