    2. 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 not before being taken captive by the Cayuse Indi [...]

    3. 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.

    4. 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) would hope to befriend. She’s that person who w [...]

    5.

    6. See Full Review at: joyofreadingweb.wordpressAfter serving the Massacre at the Whitman Mission, Hope Flanagan has withdrawn from everyone but her immediate family. She prefers to spend time with the sheep and taking care of their wool. Hope has even withdrawn from God and struggles to understand how a loving God could have let something so awful happen to His children. Over time she begins to understand that it isn’t so much that God let bad things happen, but the freedom of choice that we all [...]

    7. 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 were at the Whitman Mission when the massacre occur [...]

    8. 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 remarkable. The power of forgiveness goes a long wa [...]

    9. 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 forgive, let go and move on. In this story, that voic [...]

    10. [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 disappointed by a Tracie Peterson novel.  Simply [...]

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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 done I had a moment of WOW. We went from anger, pain, [...]

    14. 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 sister, Mercy. Hope spends her day tending to their flo [...]

    15. 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 novels written by Peterson on the flyleaf. I love find [...]

    16. 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 Peterson explores the difficulties of living a li [...]

    17. 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 trial. She harbors anger and a desire for revenge towa [...]

    18. 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 would have enjoyed the second one better if I had.  [...]

    19. Beloved Hope is the second book in Tracie Peterson's Heart of the Frontier series. (See my review of book one, Treasured Grace).This second book follows Hope, the middle sister of the three Flanagan girls who survived the Cayuse Massacre at the Whitman Mission in late 1847 (this story is told in book 1). Beloved Hope opens in May 1850, as Hope is wrestling with the memories of the massacre and subsequent captivity because she has been asked to testify in the trial against the Cayuse who were [...]

    21. 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 able to reconnect with all three of the sisters in th [...]

    22. 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 occurred. John Sager, the boy she was seeing and plan [...]

    23. This book is the second installment in Tracie Peterson’s Heart of the Frontier series.

She is content to live a reclusive life out in the country with her two sisters and brother in law until the Indians responsible for the massacre are arrested and brought to Oregon City for trial.

    24. 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, including the one who repeatedly abused Hope Flanigan, [...]

    25. 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 tears you will cry. The author places you right be [...]

    26. Beloved Hope, is set in 1850 right after the Whitman Massacre. Beginning with the trial of the guilty Indians, Hope Flanagan is asked to testify against them. Being one of the witnesses of this deadly event, Hope reluctantly agrees. What seemed to be a heartache for her turned into a blessing as she meets the love of her life through being present at the trial. Even though she felt forsaken after her experience during the massacre, Hope learns to trust again. As Hope was praying one night, she [...]

    27. Hope Flanagan has seen complete horrors that no one should ever witness. In this novel by Tracie Peterson, Beloved Hope, you see the continuation of her new series, Heart of the Frontier. In this book the focus is on Hope and the horrific ordeal she went through in the first novel. It begins by letting you know that those responsible for the rapes and murders have been arrested and are now standing trial for their crimes.Hope is terrified that she will need to testify against Tomahas because she [...]

    28. I looked forward to reading what I hoped would be a good historical novel and was sadly disappointed once again by Miss Peterson's craft. All of her books center around American history so the story should engage my interest so I ask myself what the problem is that her books are such a chore for me to get through. I find that it is because the writer is telling me instead of showing me. Her characters are flat. I was halfway through Beloved Hope before Ms. Peterson described what the main charac [...]

    29. Another 5 star book from Tracie Peterson.1: This story definitely draws you in. I was happy one moment, then sad the next. A couple times I was giggling. I definitely couldn't put it down. I even took it into the mall with me and read while mom was eating in the food court. I know I am going to be reading this one again.2: Neither one of the main characters were on sure footing with their relationship with God, but I enjoyed so much seeing them both grow and change, letting the Lord take their [...]
