Hearts Aglow by Tracie Peterson

This week, CFBA introduces Hearts Aglow, book 2 in Tracie Peterson's Striking a Match series.

In Hearts Aglow, Deborah continues studying to be a doctor under Dr. Christopher Clayton, although the villagers think the medical world is no place for a woman. As Chris and Deborah’s relationship begins to develop, Chris has to leave town for a family emergency. Deborah prays he will soon return, but after a long absence, a newspaper headline has her assuming the worst.

Since my mother-in-law had just finished reading Embers of Love (book one in Tracie’s ‘Striking a Match’ series), I let her read Hearts Aglow before I did.

She really enjoyed it (finished it in just a few days!) and said the story was filled with many exciting and heartbreaking situations, like hurricanes, fires, and medical problems (I can’t tell you everything she said – you have to read the book yourself)!

Tracie weaves a strong theme of following God and trusting Him, no matter the circumstances. If you’ve been waiting to continue Deborah’s story, Hearts Aglow will not disappoint, although the ending will make you quite anxious for book 3 to be published!
