Book Description

April 2004 Heirs of Montana (Book 1)
Book 1 of Heirs of Montana from bestselling author Tracie Peterson. Adventurers, families, outlaws...all driven west in the 1860s by a longing for endless blue sky along with wild and wide-open spaces. Tracie Peterson, from her own Montana home, paints an unforgettable portrait of this rich, rugged landscape, populated by strong and spirited characters. When Dianne Chadwick urges her family to move west to her uncle’s ranch in the Montana Territory, she has no idea that her new life in the rugged frontier—and even within her uncle’s home—will not be the idyllic adventure she expects. But first she has to survive the arduous wagon journey with the help of guide Cole Selby, whose heart seems to be as hard as the mountains he loves.

Somehow I felt Tracie Peterson went a bit heavy on the sad stuff, but perhaps that was the way it was. Dianne is featured along with her family which continues to decrease due to various reasons and some very tragic circumstances.
Diane and her Mother want to take the family and flee the war in Missouri- so- without her Father, they leave on a wagon train for Montana. If anything else went wrong there would not have been a book to write! Whites hating Blacks, Indians hating Whites, families in turmoil and through it all, a thread of hope and the Gospel. Enough happiness and success is present to continually nudge the reader to finish.
Tracie did a great job with proof of cultural differences and the grief they could cause through other people, especially in dealing with the marriage of Bram and Koko.
I am anxious for book 2 in this series. Thank you Tracie Peterson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series April 7 2004
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed reading Land of My Heart. I don't believe I've read a book of Ms. Peterson's that I didn't enjoy though. The characters are intriguing, and the reader can't help but identify with them. I found Dianne's uncle's marriage to the Native American woman to be very interesting. I look forward to reading more about that, and about the other characters in the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging read.... but keep reading. Feb. 10 2004
Format:Paperback
In this historical fiction, Dianne loses a great deal in her quest to better the lives of her mother and siblings. She urges them to travel across the country in a wagon train to the new Montana Territory, but in the process, she loses much. Some loss comes by death, some by distance, some by a distant heart..... but will she find herself and what she loves most? Just when resolution seems eminent, a cliffhanger......
At times, I thought I could read no more, but I couldn't put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so much romance as personal development Jan. 13 2009
By Tracey Cramer-Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is not a "romance" per se. Rather, it is a story about how the characters deal with loss and challenge, and how they grow as a person because of it. (I try to write that way myself.) Peterson does a masterful job of this character transformation, and that's the reason I had trouble putting this book down!

The relationship (as opposed to "romance") between Cole and Dianne builds slowly, which some may see as a negative, but which find I much more compelling and deep. The passages relating to the characters' struggles with God are completely believable - for most of us have questioned God at some time or other.

I'm looking forward to the next in the series!

3.0 out of 5 stars I don't know July 1 2009
By J. Hanks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I picked this book up three times at the library and each time just couldn't get into it. I finally said I would read it, and when I did, I wished that I hadn't. I love Tracie Peterson as a writer (she is my favorite author), and would never want to put her down, but this book was just too sad to handle. It does get a lot better near the end, but the beginning and part of the middle is just too much misery in one book. And the worst thing about this is that my friend told me that the sequal is almost just as sad. Now I started a series and I don't know if I am willing to pick up the second book. But please don't let this stop you from reading it. It is really good and people have different likes and dislikes about books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christian Fiction April 24 2011
By scarlet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent Christian fiction that's not too preachy; full of adventure. I like that the stories do have tragedy; people do die, even children, and that's what it was like in the old west. Too many other writers romanticize the old west! Tracie Peterson does a good job of bringing out the injustices of prejudices against all kinds of people, such as in this book with the Indians and ex-slaves. Quite a good story line - I hope to read the next in this series soon.
I also liked the printing of this book with the "turned page corner" at the beginning of each chapter. It's a clever little illustration. It makes the book a little more special, so nice if you are thinking of giving the book or Heirs of Montana series as a gift.
