I have been a fan of Tracie Peterson’s books since—Well, for as long as I can remember! Her first novels were published by Barbour’s Heartsong line in the 1990s. Each title was short (about 170 pages) and centered around a budding romance between a man and a woman who grow in faith by the story’s end.
In those days I was a Heartsong subscriber, so Tracie’s books automatically arrived my doorstep. She quickly became one of my favorite authors. I’ve been a constant reader of her stories ever since; in fact, six of her novels figure prominently on my keeper shelf.
Fast forward twenty years later, and I’m still an avid reader of Tracie’s books.
Her latest series is “Brookstone Brides,” about a traveling Wild West show comprised of all-female performers. I love the premise!
The first book in the series, When You are Near, released earlier this month, and automatically appeared on my Kindle (we’ve come a long way since the 90s!).
You can click on the cover to read the book description.
When You are Near had everything I’ve come to expect from a Tracie Peterson book: strong characters, a complex story, surprise twists, and an historical setting so well written you think you’re living the time period.
As soon as I finished reading it, I wanted more, and began searching for information about the next book in the series.
The good news is, I don’t have long to wait long to read it. Wherever You Go (Book 2) comes out in June.
It’s already available for pre-order on Amazon. Here’s a link, if you’d like to read the book description.
I just found out that Book 3 in the series, What Comes My Way, will release in October.

By the way, aren’t the covers beautiful? They really capture all the little details that help make the time period come to life.
If you love reading about strong, determined women, the old west, and vulnerable hearts learning to trust God and His Will, then Tracie’s new series just might be for you! I hope you’ll check it out.
