Listener Opinions

    " A nice love, slight thriller based in victorian times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrystal | 2/12/2014

    " What a refreshing change from the dark and overly-intense books I've recently finished! This was a fast and pleasant read. I enjoyed the setting of Philadelphia, 1852. The concerns of social status and marriage and factory workers, indentured servants, child labor and justice, as well as Christian duty were interesting enough. The main character, Mia Stanley and her best friend Garrett Wilson were also likeable enough. This was a nice diversion and a gentle enough mix of tension, purpose, romance, adventure and principle. I think I'll enjoy trying another Tracie Peterson book soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adair | 2/7/2014

    " I liked it, but then it got l.o.n.g... and a bit preachy. By the end I was bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 1/29/2014

    " Mia was kind of annoying in some parts but overall, this was a good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamera | 1/22/2014

    " This was a sweet quick read. I enjoyed it, you need a bit of formula fiction every once and a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shellie | 1/20/2014

    " The timing of the book is in the "Jane Austen" time, but the language was a lot easier to follow. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 1/19/2014

    " I liked it ok. The romance was very Emma/Mr. Knightly-esque: girl and guy have known each other forever, he's 8 years older and friends with her father, he's super successful and acts as her moral soundboard, he's very handsome and is finally looking to take a wife, she's young and beautiful, adored by her family, loves playing matchmaker amongst her friends - I mean seriously, is any of this sounding familiar? Set in Philadelphia during the 1850s, it really was a nice setting for a novel. My only beef is that I found it far too preachy. Paragraphs upon paragraphs devoted to the discussion of God's will and why He allows suffering among innocent people and how can the rich help the downtrodden. It got real preachy, real fast. And while I'm not opposed to talk of God, I typically read it in a religious-type book. This is touted as fiction. It simply rubbed me the wrong way. I found myself skipping over pages at a time just to get to the "plot". I guess I'm more of a heathen than I thought! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/5/2014

    " I enjoyed this book and like her writing. I enjoyed the mix of romance and suspense. I also enjoy books that have a strong heroine character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalya | 12/19/2013

    " I've enjoyed all of the books in the Ladies of liberty series- This one especially. Wonderful full, characters with faults and goodness. Admirable writing and interesting plot. I loved how she brought a very real issue into fiction. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suzi | 11/30/2013

    " I didn't manage to finish it. I just don't feel connected to the heroine. Or the story. I find her to be too careless about her causes sometimes to feel that she really cares. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 11/29/2013

    " I like this author. This book ended a little abrupt and sappy for me, but was still a fun and quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicola | 11/28/2013

    " Simple and easy love story. Guessed the ending and skipped some but it was very clean and fluffy. Has a time and a place. Not for people who ready heavier books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/28/2013

    " A good book for sure, but not one of my most favorites. I am, however, still excited to read more of the books in this series/by the author! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Snow | 9/18/2013

    " "It was a good book for one that loves a book of beauty, wonder, and a little mistary....to finish off with a interesting, lovely ending." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lexi | 3/28/2013

    " A really good book!Kind of slow in the beginning because of the dialouge... But besides that a great book!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/1/2013

    " I don't think I'll be reading anything else from this series. The main character has good moral fiber, but is a lot blind to common sense and had to keep being rescued from her own impulses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/28/2012

    " A fun, sweet read. I enjoyed the romance between the main characters. It reminded me of Jane Austen's Emma. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lydia Presley | 12/18/2012

    " A silly, uninteresting book. I picked this up because the covers for Tracie Peterson's books are simply gorgeous - I just wish the stories were as well. I should have known better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalee | 6/16/2012

    " Really like this book... Reminded me very of Emma by Jane Austen and the romance between Emma and Mr. Knightly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 6/1/2012

    " Enjoyable fast read christian romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 2/20/2012

    " I LOVED the main characters of this story, Mia & Garrett. I stayed up WAY too late last night finishing the last 1/3 of the book because I couldn't put it down. It's a wonderful love story w/ some action and suspense at the end. Garrett can be my knight in shining armor anyday. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyami | 1/19/2012

    " I liked the book but it was a little boring, up until the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 11/19/2011

    " I bought this book at a used book sale but I still want my $1 and my two days back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 6/5/2011

    " Tracie Paterson takes the plot from Emma and gives it some suspense. A fun read. "

    " I've enjoyed all of the books in the Ladies of liberty series- This one especially. Wonderful full, characters with faults and goodness. Admirable writing and interesting plot. I loved how she brought a very real issue into fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 3/8/2011

    " Great period piece romance with Christian themes, moral dilemmas, choices and their dramatic consequences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/8/2011

    " I couldn't really get into this book. Not a lot to the plot. I ended up just skimming the second half. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tierra | 1/5/2011

    " Cute story. I think it was a little like Emma where she falls for the best friend.
    The frustrating part of the book was that she couldn't take advice from anyone. Especially when she was putting herself in dangerous situations. I was ready to throttle her is she was real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 12/29/2010

    " Lovely little story. I enjoyed it. "

    " I enjoyed the story and the writing...the ending could have been more developed and longer, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 10/28/2010

    " Way too cheesy for me. I don't think I'll read the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 10/19/2010

    " Didn't know what to expect when I started this and was pleasantly surprised to find it a christian romance....a historical christian romance. Even better! Enjoyed it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 8/15/2010

    " I bought this book at a used book sale but I still want my $1 and my two days back. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 7/2/2010

    " Historical fiction about a young woman who wants to help end injustices in her city. Better thoughts on poverty and faith than usually present in a Christian romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/4/2010

    " "It was a good book for one that loves a book of beauty, wonder, and a little mistary....to finish off with a interesting, lovely ending." "
