I'm honestly not sure how she does it but Tracie Peterson has another great book with "Hope Rekindled". I was sad when book #2 ended, but picking up this one was like no time had passed and I was right back in Texas with Deborah as she awaits her wedding day with Christopher. The whole family is back and so are the friends and secondary characters that make Perkinsville such a great place to visit... even the bad guys that make life miserable for Deborah's family. Many new issues come up in this book to make life full of twists and turns for everyone involved and I loved going on this journey with Deborah. I am assuming that this is the last book (#3) in the series but there is a little part of me hoping for a #4... most loose ends are wrapped up but the White Hand of God (KKK) is still unknown so I'm not sure... Great book!

Life seems to be falling into place for Deborah Vandermark. On the cusp of finally marrying Christopher, the man who claimed her heart, she is devastated when he receives an urgent telegram. Bound to his family obligations, Christopher travels to Kansas City, uncertain of what he will find there.
When her fiancé returns to Texas, Deborah is faced with a very different future than she expected.

And when an old adversary reveals a contract that may spell ruin for Vandermark Logging, Deborah's life seems to be spiraling out of control. Can Christopher and Deborah find a way to claim the future they long to share when so much stands in the way?
