The Inspiring Conclusion to Tracie Peterson's Heart of the Frontier Series

Mercy Flanagan survived the Whitman Massacre as a child, and now her heart's cry is for peace between the native peoples and the white settlers inhabiting Oregon Territory. Unfortunately, most of the settlers would rather the tribes were removed from the land completely, one way or the other, and tensions are rising. Mercy has grown tired of Oregon City and feels that she has a larger purpose in life, so when she learns that family friend Eletta Browning is pregnant, she travels south to the Rogue River Valley to help.

At the Rogue River Mission, Mercy meets Eletta's brother-in-law, Adam, who has suffered a broken engagement. Mercy finds him attractive, but Adam seems determined to focus on ministering to the local tribes and keeps Mercy at arm's length.

When tragedy strikes and tensions in the territory reach the boiling point, Mercy is pushed to the limit of her strength. She and Adam must rely on their firm faith in God in order to make it out alive.

Each of the 3 books in this series can be read as stand alone novels. There’s nothing bad about this book. Somehow it just all seemed very familiar; like it reused plots from the first two books. Characters are all likable, at least the ones we are supposed to like are. It’s difficult to read with our modern ideas that all people are created equal. They certainly didn’t feel that way in 1855.
I listened rather than read. The reader has a nice voice & does a good job voicing the characters, but I’m not sure she could read any slower. There’s no way a 300 page book should take 10 discs. It felt like she was reading a bedtime story to a small child.
