Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson is a good, captivating read from beginning to end. Young Texas frontier woman Hannah learns that her father is missing and feared dead from his law partner Mr. Lockhart, who desires to marry Hannah. Hannah suddenly finds herself not only in charge of her younger brother and sister whose mother died during the birth of the youngest child, but also in charge of running their ranch.
a marriage of convenience to Mr. Lockhart could ease Hannah's
situation, along comes William Barnett, the original owner of the ranch,
home from the war. As he fought on the side of the Yankees, he was
considered a traitor and his ranch stripped from his family and awarded
to Hannah's father as a reward for work he had done for the Confederacy.
As William returns to live on the ranch with the intention of regaining
ownership, he and Hannah cannot deny their growing affection for one
another. With threats from the Indians and from Mr. Lockhart, William
and Hannah must protect each other, and the ranch, at all cost.
With suspense, a touch of romance, and unwavering Christian faith, this book was excellent from beginning to end.
