Steadfast Heart by Tracie Peterson


Steadfast Heart

I am a big fan of Tracie Peterson.  Every book that I have read by her is amazing, and Steadfast Heart keeps with the tradition.  Streadfast Heart is book 1 in the Brides of Seattle series, and I can’t wait to read the rest.  In this book we are introduced to so many lovable characters.  Lenore and her best friend Abrianna might not always look or act the same, but that only enhances their friendship.  Lenore grew up in a privileged lifestyle where she was taught how to act and what you should and should not say.  Abrianna was mostly raised by her Aunts and their good friend in a Bridal School.  Despite being raised a certain way Lenore has a big heart for others.

Abrianna’s story takes center stage for a lot of the book, and I can honestly say I don’t mind it one bit.  Abrianna has the biggest heart for the homeless and down and outers.  She is strong in her faith in God, and knows that helping them is what she is made for.  One of her oldest and best friends Wade also likes to help, and will tag along with her to help in any way he can.  Wade enjoys every minute he spends with Abrianna, and knows that it will never be boring.  I can’t wait to read more about Abrianna and her love story and hope that it takes place in book two.

Kolbein Booth comes to Seattle in search of his little sister.  When he arrives at Madison Bridal School he gets more than he bargained for.  After telling the ladies about his sister, they all want to help him find her.  Abrianna makes it a mission of hers to find his sister, and asks her friends to keep an eye out.  Lenore and Kolbein both notice each other immediately, but is that enough?  This book takes you on an adventure from beginning to end.  I enjoyed the whole ride and know you will too.  I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest opinion.  All opinions expressed are my own.
