Love Everlasting, by Tracie Peterson, opens in 1889 in Seattle. Abrianna Cunningham has just turned eighteen and the aunts who raised her tell her they have provided her with an inheritance. She is now a woman of means and is about to become engaged to her long term friend, Wade. One would think Abrianna should be a happy woman, but she is troubled. She doesn’t know if she can be a good wife and she is concerned that marriage will change her special relationship with Wade. Being an adult seems very complicated to her. Her troubles have just begun. She finds herself in a situation where all those that she loves are in danger of losing their lives. Can she find a way to save them all?
The author brings to the reader a well told and believable story that mixes romance and mystery. We are given the opportunity to know the well developed cast of characters. Even though bad things happen and the outcome is uncertain, the characters have faith, hope and a deep love for each other. Abrianna is a very special woman and her story is well worth reading.
I received this book for free from Bethany House and I give this review of my own free will.
