Under the Starry Skies (Love on the Santa Fe, #3) by Tracie Peterson


Will their faith prove to be stronger than their fear?
Sensible and independent, Cassie Barton never anticipated being on her own at thirty-two. But after the death of her father and the marriage of her sister, she's found joy in her work as a seamstress. When a minor accident leaves her unable to sew, she decides to use her time to compile a book of stories about the men working on the Santa Fe Railroad. But worry begins to grow in San Marcial as Mexican revolutionaries set out to destroy the railroad--and put many lives in danger.

With Europe at war and his longtime friend Cassie injured, railroad worker Brandon DuBarko is burdened by his troubles. He promised Cassie's father he would watch over her, but as their comfortable friendship slowly transforms into something deeper, he feels trapped by a secret from his youth. When a vengeful man reappears in Brandon's life, intent on causing conflict, Brandon must face his past before he can move forward.

As the danger intensifies, Cassie and Brandon must rely on God to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of a brighter future.

My Review

Set in 1916 New Mexico we are there for the building of the Santa Fe Railroad, and we see that some people really don't want it, or have other plans, and the track is sabotaged!

This is Cassie and Brandon's story, a story of past family dynamics and losses, there is grieving, and relief, and with a strong thread of forgiveness. Hurts that are magnified, and seen from different angles, or sins that we think we have committed, and we see through the Author that God plays a big roll in our lives!

This is a Christian romance, and there is drama, and hurts, along with such warm loving embracing of those in need.

This was a great story to get lost in, and I didn't want to leave! Yes, we are gifted with an epilogue!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
