A Promise to Believe In by Tracie Peterson

a promise to believe in

“She longed to find a promise to believe in… After years spent following their father and his wanderlust, the three Gallatin sisters begin to fashion a life for themselves in the Montana wilds, operating a roadhouse at the crossroads of two stage lines. When their father is accidentally killed, however, the oldest sister, Gwen, reasons that she’s cursed. Death seems to haunt her every step. As the sisters work to maintain the roadhouse, an unexpected visitor arrives, sending Gwen into turmoil. Is he who he claims to be? And can she dare to hope that love might again be hers?”

This is one of the best books that I have read in a while! I mean, I’ve read some good books, and some were even great and I call favorites of mine, but this one is absolutely, no doubt, one of the best books ever! It is the first one in the series, Brides of Gallatin County, and does a remarkable job in pulling the reader in. The plot is similar to many of Tracie Peterson’s other novels but at the same time it is completely different. The characters are amazing and their personalities are so different. Three sisters and they are as different as red, blue, and green. Even though this novel is about the eldest sister, Gwen, and her point of view, it still incorporates the viewpoints of the other two sisters which gives the book a few additional points. I really liked how, as a reader, I was able to read about the growth of the town they resided in and watch Gwen’s relationship with God bloom. The town started out with their roadhouse, the saloon, and a few other establishments, and by the end a store was being added. I always find it interesting to be able to get to know the history of  a town and then watch it grow. So many things end up making sense later on and we aren’t left wondering what had happened beforehand. If you couldn’t tell, I immensely enjoyed reading this book and would really recommend reading it. The next book you chose, well, I hope it’s this one!
