Chasing the Sun - a review

I love to read.  It is such a great way to escape to different times and places.  I read a book recently by Tracie Peterson called Chasing the Sun.  I have to admit right up front that I am a big Tracie Peterson fan.  ( I have 6 other books by her in my library right now.)   I love the way she develops characters and the stories she weaves them into.
Chasing the Sun is set in Texas during the end of the Civil War.  The two main characters are on different sides of the war between the states. Hannah Dandridge is a strong willed and capable woman that is left in charge of a ranch in Texas.  William Barnett is a wounded union soldier that has returned home from the war to find his ranch has been "given" to the Dandridge family by the Confederacy.  This story was a great read.  I really enjoyed the characters and the way she brought the salvation message into this tale.  This is book 1 in the Land of the Lonestar series and I can't wait to see how she continues the story...

 I was given this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for this review.  I jumped at the chance to review this book because I wanted to read this book when it was first released and getting a free copy to do that is great!
