"Twilight's Serenade" Book Review

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Twilight's Serenade
Bethany House (August 1, 2010)

Tracie Peterson


Tracie Peterson is a master of historical fiction and this book is a great addition to her library of writing. I read the first book in this series and somehow missed the second book, I was pleased to see that the third book isn't reliant on the previous books but can stand on its on feet if necessary. Much time has passed since the first book, the infant in book one is now a dad with children of his own. Now his younger sister is the main character in this book and she is returning home after being gone on tour with her violin for years. She is trying to figure out what she wants for her future when her future lands in her lap. Can she really reconcile her past with her present and her future. Can it really involve Yuri and his girls or when she fell in love with him at age 7 was it just a crush.

I really liked the conclusion to this series and I thank Tracie Peterson for renewing my faith in historical romance. She is a true master.
