The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson--Book Review

When it comes to family feuds, love usually doesn't find a place. However for Chantel Panetta's sister, Isabella, love has struck... and with a Calarco boy, and Orlando is just as in love with Isabella. Chantel knows that to agree with her sister's pleas will cause an even bigger disruption between the two families, but she cannot say no, especially when the older Calarco boy catches her eye.

The Miner's Lady is the typical Christian, historical romance with the-Romeo-and-Juliet-love twist.

While this is not my favorite genre to read in, I felt somewhat motivated to continue reading this book. It had the right blend of romance and tragic action. The characters were well defined in what they believed and desired. I loved the addition of the Italian culture (talk about swoon worthy).

I did think the story line felt a little rushed and that things happened to fall perfectly in line during some parts. Also, a few of the tragedies were a bit stiff and forced--almost cliche and predictable. Marco's (Chantel's brother) side story felt unnecessary until the end. The result of it was surprising.

This is an easy-to-read book for lovers of historical romance. I think many people would enjoy it and find satisfaction with the story line, characters, and ending. A good read for happy feelings with a side of danger.

I received this book free from Bethany House for my open and honest opinion.
