Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position.

Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in "Oregon Country," she decides to stay rather than push on. 

With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills--or her presence--and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible.

Searching for a wonderful book to read this Spring or Summer?  

Treasured Grace is definitely one book you should consider reading!

Treasured Grace is set in the 1840s frontier and is the first of three books in Ms. Peterson's Heart of the Frontier Series.  The author's love of history and research clearly shines through in her richly detailed settings, roundly developed characters and engaging plot.  

In truth, I have to say I started of reading this book expecting a feel good, clean love story of  moderate fluff.  It wasn't long into the book where I was pleasantly and strongly surprised to find this book was so much more!  Within the pages of this historical romance the author addresses woman's equality issues of that era, human prejudice based on race and religion, the effects of this country's westward expansion  as well as love, faith and so. much. more.

I fully enjoyed reading Treasured Grace and I can't wait to read the second and third book in this series!
