Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson

“Hannah is dChasing the Sunesperate for help… William is determined to regain his family’s land… When her father  disappears in war-torn Mississippi, Hannah Dandridge finds herself responsible not only for her  younger siblings but also for the Texas ranch her father recently acquired. A marriage of convenience could ease her predicament… but is it the true desire of her heart? Wounded soldier  William Barnett returns home only to find out that his family’s ranch has been seized. Though  angered at this turn of events, he’s surprised to discover that it is a beautiful young woman with  amazing fortitude who is struggling to keep the place running…”

Chasing the Sun is the first novel of Tracie Peterson’s series, Land of the Lone Star. With more than  ninety books in print Tracie Peterson still continues to amaze readers with her novels. She is actually one of my favorite Historical Christian authors. I find her novels to be captivating and encouraging. In this  novel we are taken back in time to the time of the Civil War and how it changed families.  Hannah and her  family had moved to Texas to put the war behind them. But even with all of the distance between them and the battles the war continued to wreak havoc on their lives. This novel is  a great example  of strong faith in God. Never once, in terrifying nor in joyful events, did Hannah’s  faith waiver. Her  faith in the Lord is a great example of how our faith should be. “And we know that  all things work  together for good to them that love God…” ~ Romans 8:28.
