Secrets of My Heart

Tracie Peterson. Bethany House, $15.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-0-7642-3225-1
Childhood friends reconnect during sad circumstances in the consuming launch of Peterson’s Willamette Brides series (following her Brookstone Brides series). In 1879 Portland, Ore., newly widowed Nancy Pritchard mourns the death of her husband, Albert, though her loveless marriage made her husband a stranger to her. Rumors begin to spread that Albert was murdered, and evidence is found suggesting Albert was involved in illegally selling guns and liquor; Nancy can’t help wondering what other kinds of business her husband was involved in. When lawyer Seth Carpenter, Nancy’s childhood friend, comes to town to investigate Albert’s illegal dealings, he gets reacquainted with Nancy and develops feelings for her. As Seth continues to investigate, he discovers more secrets about Albert, and after Nancy’s life is threatened, Seth desperately tries to keep her safe. Meanwhile, Nancy’s angry at God for her baby brother’s death 15 years ago—but letting go of her bitterness could finally allow Nancy to feel the love she had been missing. This is a beautiful story of redemption. (Mar.)
