Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors for three main reasons. 1) She creates these amazing, real characters you can immediately relate and sympathize with. 2) Her stories are always fast paced and not for a second boring. 3) Whether joy, anger, sadness, glee, or laughter…she has the ability to make her readers feel. I’ve never read a Tracie Peterson book that I didn’t like, and A Moment in Time was no exception.
Alice was kind, heartfelt, giving, and completely unaware of her own beauty. Robert was a tad annoying at times, but still somehow lovable, funny, and kind. I immediately connected with the characters, but especially with Alice and Marty. They both had deep set fears that stemmed from loss and betrayal, but had a solid, growing relationship with God. A lot of this story was about faith and I really appreciated the little gems it contained. It was also slightly suspenseful at times, just enough to keep you excited.
Tracie Peterson has done it again with her latest addition to this beautiful series. If you enjoy historical fiction, then I recommend you read the Lone Star Brides series asap! It was heartfelt, relatable, fast paced, and compelling. Now the only question I have is when is book three coming out?
