To Dream Anew
To Dream Anew is the third volume in Tracie Peterson’s Heirs of Montana series. The pace is quick and the action focused, as Dianne and Cole Selby tackle daunting challenges to their dream of establishing a home in the Montana wilderness. Under the storm clouds of the Battle of Little Big Horn, they prepare for Indian raids. Treachery also swirls through the valley as an unscrupulous empire builder takes over one ranch at a time, his sights now set on the Diamond V.
However, To Dream Anew is not about how Montanans survived terrible hardships. The book’s theme is trust in God. The threats and tragedies that befall the Diamond V ranchers are opportunities for them to voice their belief in a loving God. Their greatest challenge is to trust that all will be well in God’s own time, which isn’t necessarily as soon as they would like it to be.
The author maintains a website at http://www.traciepeterson.com. In it she writes, “Above all things, I long for the reader to fall in love with God.” Perhaps the reader will find God here. But if not, I hope Ms. Peterson won’t mind terribly if they simply enjoy her wonderful gift of storytelling.
