Hearts Aglow (Bethany House, $14.99)

hearts_aglowIn Hearts Aglow, by Tracie Peterson, Deborah Vandermark lives in Texas after the Civil War. Interested in becoming a physician, she studies with the handsome young doctor in town. Deborah soon falls in love, but next comes a hurricane, the doctor’s romantic indifference, arson at the local sawmill, a jealous cowboy’s threats of revenge and the murder of a family of harmless ex-slaves. This book is second in a new series titled “Strikes a Match,” thus most questions are left unanswered when a reader turns the last page.
