    Wow! It is hard to find the words to express the emotions that I am feeling at the end of this book. Tracie Peterson has taken a difficult subject and left me with a feeling of peace. The first book in the series was hard to read, the characters suffered at the hands of others. It was a book of understanding. This book is one of healing.The book starts as Hope is asked to testify against the men responsible for the Whitman Massacre. The range of ...

    A man can't live without hope. Nor can a woman and in Beloved Hope by Tracie Peterson, Hope Flanagan comes face to face with her past she longed to forget that happened two years ago. The Whitman Massacre had led to the deaths of more than just Dr. Whitman and his wife, but also the only man Hope wanted to marry and loved with all her heart. Watching him being killed in front of her while she watched the life seep out of him was hard for her, but...

    This was Book 2 in the Heart of the Frontier series. Loved this book. Glad that rape and assault were focal points. Should not be hidden in the closet.Looking forward to the release of Book 3. Most likely will have to wait for awhile.

    This being the second in the series you definitely want to make sure to read the one prior so you can understand the full scope of the story, heartache, strength, loss and everything in between that Peterson is throwing at her readers upon the pages of this emotionally powerful piece of Christian Fiction.Hope Flanagan is the kind of woman that if I lived back in those times (thank GOD I don’t because me without WIFI and Starbucks is not pretty)...

She prefers to spend time with the sheep and taking care of their wool.

    First sentence: "You can't be serious," Hope Flanagan looked at the man who sat opposite her at her sister and brother-in-law's kitchen table. "You expect me to testify in the Cayuse trial."Premise/plot: Beloved Hope is the second book in the Heart of the Frontier trilogy by Tracie Peterson. This historical fiction series is set in the Oregon Territory in 1850. In the first book, readers met three sisters: Grace, Hope, and Mercy. Hope and Mercy w...

    The second book in the “Heart of the Frontier” series follows, Hope, the middle Flanagan sister. In the first book we saw how the attack on the mission she was in by a group of Indians affected her older sister, Grace. Hope must heal in order to move forward in her life but she has to learn how. Enter, Lance, someone who also must learn to heal after having learn to hate for so long. How the stories and lives of the characters intertwine is r...

    This was such a powerful story. I couldn't imagine living with all that Hope endured. The truth is, she wasn't really living. She was full of sadness, hate and revenge-like feelings. To be honest, I'm glad the author chose to portray her in this manner, as I felt it made me connect with her character easier. Who's to say if we were in a similar situation that we wouldn't feel the same?But then, there's that voice inside our head telling us to for...

    [Note:  This book was provided free of charge by Bethany House.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.]Although I do not read many romance novels in the course of my voluminous devouring of volumes of material, from time to time romance novels do cross my path, and this is the second one by the author that has done so [1].  Given the generally high quality of romance novels that I read, I have to admit that this is the second time I have been ...

    This was the second book in this series about the massacre at the Whitman Mission and the people who survived. The main character is Hopeand her sisters Grace and Mercy. Hope struggles to overcome the pastand searches for healing and love with all that happened to her. This isa warm and tender tale set in the wilderness of Oregon. An enjoyable lightread with history of that period.

    I struggled with this book. I liked it so much more than the first in the series. more than likely this is due to the massacre and aftermath. However I love that Hope did not settle. I don't want to spoil things so I will simply say that one needs to read A Treasured Grace prior to reading this one.

    I love this sequel!I am absolutely in love with this series so far. I love the prairie setting and the characters. I was happy to see that Tracie also included characters from Treasured Grace (and they were a pretty big part of it, in fact!).To me this story is filled with journeys.Hope’s journey, Grace’s continuing journey, Mercy’s journey (I loved how we get a view of her before her story comes out!), Lance’s journey, etc.When I was don...

    In this second book in the Heart of the Frontier series, we learn that Hope has survived the Whitman massacre. However, just because she survived doesn't mean that she doesn't carry very deep scars of the event. Hope is not sure she will ever trust anyone again, especially a man. After what she's endured, Hope doesn't seem to have a lot of hope for her future. She's living with her sister, Grace and her husband, Alex, as well as her younger siste...

    First off, this book it the second in the “Heart of the Frontier” series. It can be read and understood without reading the first of the series. The events of this book do tie into the events of the first, however, Peterson does a good job of providing enough of a recap that new readers do not find themselves lost. I wanted to like this book. Upon receiving a copy of this book, I was pleasantly surprised to find a list of dozens of other nove...

    Beloved Hope by Tracie Peterson is a wonderful Christian historical romance which I loved. It is the second book in the Heart Of The Frontier series but can be read as a stand-alone as all the back story is incorporated into the book. However I would recommend reading book one Treasured Grace first.The novel deals with the after effects of trauma. Her "scars weren't visible ones." Today we would diagnose PTSD but it was unheard of in 1850. Tracie...

    Tracie Peterson was one of the first Christian Fiction authors I ever read, and I have enjoyed reading most of her books since. And I must say that with Beloved Hope, the second in her “Heart of the Frontier” series, Ms. Peterson has written another great book.It centers on Hope, a survivor of the Whitman Massacre, who is struggling to overcome what happened to her there when she’s asked to testify against her Indian attackers at their tria...

    When I received this book from Bethany House, I knew my mother, Gloria would be very excited because Tracie Peterson is one of her favorite authors.  I immediately turned the book over to Gloria to read so everyone could learn about the book.  Without anything further, here's Gloria's review:"Beloved Hope is the second book in the Heart of the Frontier series, the first book was Treasured Grace.  I did not read the first book, but I feel I wou...

    If you read my review of 'Treasured Grace' then you are ahead of the curve on what to expect in this review. If you haven't read the first book I strongly urge you to do so. Though it's now two years later there is still much carryover which prompts me to include a disclaimer again. Yes the massacre, the killing, the sexual assault are over but they are still a part of this book. The Indians responsible for the attack are found and brought in to ...

    The second book in the "Heart of the Frontier" series is a well-written, moving continuation of the excellent tale Tracie Peterson began in the first book of the series, "Treasured Grace". If you haven't yet read that first novel, I definitely recommend starting there, as the massacre at the Whitman Mission that takes place in the first book deeply affects the lives of these three sisters, Grace, Hope and Mercy. In "Beloved Hope", readers are abl...

    Wow!! This histoical novel takes the reader May 1850 in Oregon City, Oregon. This is the second book in the Heart of the Frontier series. Although not necessary, but it would enhance the story if Treasured Grace, the first book in the series, is read first. It would give the reader a background of the story. This story centers around Hope Flanagan. She along with her younger sister, Mercy, was at the Whitman Mission that dark day the massacre occ...

    This is the second book in Peterson’s Heart of the Frontier series. Book one, Treasured Grace focused on the eldest of the Flanigan sisters, while Beloved Hope focuses on the middle sister. Set in the area of Oregon City in the mid-1800s, this second installment largely revolves around the trial of five Cayuse men being tried for the atrocities of the Whitman Mission Massacre. Many townspeople and survivors of the massacre feared the men, inclu...

    MY THOUGHTSTo start with, I would definitely read the first book in the series to get the background on the characters. Ms. Peterson wrote a beautiful Christian story of a strong woman and everything she faced. You immediately love Hope Flanagan. She's the type of woman you would stand beside you. She was a strong frontier woman who faced a heart break that most women would totally fall apart over. You will definitely need a tissue to dab at the ...
