Présentation de l'éditeur

Gwen, Beth, and Lacy Gallatin fashion a life for themselves in the Montana wilds, operating a roadhouse that is located at the crossroads of two major stage lines. When their father is accidentally killed, the oldest sister, Gwen, reasons that she's cursed. After all, death seems to haunt her: her mother, now her father...and she was married for a mere ten days before her husband died from a bout of measles.

As Gwen and her sisters struggle to maintain the inn on their own, an unexpected visitor adds to the mayhem. Hank Bishop claims to be searching for something in the possession of Gwen's late husband. But mayhem of another sort builds in Gwen's heart as she finds a growing attraction to this man. Can she dare to hope that love might again be hers?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I give it 3 1/2 stars but don't let that deter you!! 16 septembre 2008

I want to say that this book was enjoyable to read. It had an interesting story and a little bit of humor. It is very different from Peterson's Broadmoor Legacy books and even further from her last series, the Ladies of Liberty.

This book opens with the death of her father, George Gallatin. A man with a great heart but no exceptional abilities, he moved his family around teh country before ending up in the rugged territory of Montana running a stage stop.

Gwen Gallatin and her sisters are left alone running the stage stop and dealing with their grief. Losing her father to a fluke accident after sending him on an errand and widowed on her wedding day (she decides to keep her maiden name), she feels she is a curse to those she loves and will eventually be the cause of death of all those she cares for.

Hank Bishop (of course he is smart, rich, and handsome!) is seeking Gwen, the widow of his brother. Expecting the worst of her he is surprised when he learns she is not a goldigger, but rather a sweet innocent, hurting woman. Hank, on a mission to return items his brother stole from the family, endures much while staying with the Gallatin sisters in their boarding house. He learns to admire these 3 women and the land they make their home.

Now I will share my opinions (and please don't take them personally--they are merely opinions!). While the characters were developed well enough, I found Gwens inner termoil frustrating and a little annoying. It was dragged out and dwelled upon and all the while it seemed rather silly to me. Also, the relationship between Hank and Gwen didn't flow in a realistic way. I didn't really buy it. While this book was enjoyable enough, it just wasn't what I've come to expect from this author. I still gave it 4 stars (though I heavily debated giving it 3) so it was still worthwhile.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gallatin Sisters Captured My Heart from Page One 13 février 2009
Par Lori Kasbeer - Publié sur Amazon.com

While growing up the Gallatin sisters never had a place to call home. It was not until recently their father settled down and they began to make a home for themselves in Montana. Their father and the three daughters managed a roadhouse at the crossroads of two stagecoach lines. Suddenly their father is killed and the oldest daughter Gwen believes it is all her fault. Gwen says she is cursed and harm comes to anyone she loves.

While keeping the roadhouse in operation an unexpected visitor looking for his brother turns Gwen's life upside down. Lacy is determined to find who is responsible for her father's death and Beth is trying to protect Gwen from this new unexpected visitor. Does Gwen dare fall in love again? And is she cursed?

A Promise to Believe In is the first book in a new series called Brides of Gallatin. Book one is Gwen's story. Each of the sisters had me laughing out loud and sometimes crying; I can not wait to read Beth and Lacy's story. Tracie Peterson does a beautiful job in bringing each of her characters to life and reminding us of the hardships of 19th century life.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 enjoyable start to a new series 28 novembre 2008

"A Promise to Believe In" is the first book in the Brides of Gallatin County series by Tracie Peterson. I really enjoyed the book but did have some issues with it as well.

Sisters Gwen, Beth, and Lacy Gallatin operate a stagehouse in the Montana Territory with their father in the late 1800's. When their father is accidentally killed, Gwen blames herself thinking she is cursed. Her own husband Harvey Bishop died 10 days after they were married. The sudden appearance of a stranger, Hank Bishop, claiming to be Harvey's brother throws Gwen's life and feelings into turmoil. He has come to find the stock certificates that Harvey has stolen from their family. However along the way, Hank begins to care for Gwen and she for him. Dare she think that happiness can be hers again?

Tracie Peterson excels in describing the scenery of the Montana Territory. And I really enjoyed the plot of the story and the characterization. Lacy and Beth's pranks aganist Hank were quite fun to read and the sarcastic tone that many of the characters had towards others also made good humor for the book. But I found Gwen's anguish over the notion that she was cursed to be annoying. One minute she thought she was being silly, then the next she thinks she's cursed again, and it kept going until the end. And the last few chapters of the book were a total cliche. An example is when Rafe the saloon owner is threatening that Hank will never come back to Gwen and she will have to sell out, what happens? Hank suddenly appears at the doorway to make everything okay. The romance between Gwen and Hank was sweet and fun to read but slightly unrealistic. But it didn't deter me from liking the book. I enjoy reading stories like this so it doesn't really matter.

All in all, if you are a Tracie Peterson fan you will like the book for sure. I look forward to "A Love to Last Forever" which is suppose to tell Beth's story. Hopefully we'll see more of Gwen and Hank in the story as well. :)

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 18 juillet 2009
Par LikeVelvet - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was really disappointed. The cover of the book is beautiful but dont let that fool you. There was absolutly no meat to the book. The author failed to draw the reader into the story with setting description and character depth. I really wanted the book to get better and I gave it a chance by reading 100 pages into it but eventually I quit. She tried to tell instead of show. The synopsis on the back sounded great but in the end the story was so light it was like drinking air.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Peterson winner 16 juillet 2009
Par Deborah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Every time Tracie Peterson announces she has a new book coming out, I immediately go and put it on my wish list. She is one of those authors whom I have read every book and is pretty much a standard in Christian fiction. Everything I always like about Tracie's books is included in this one as well. From the detailed historical research to wonderful character development to that comfort feeling you get while reading her books, it's all here. The sisters run a boarding house/restaurant/coach stop that is very similar to the Fred Harvey system used out west. It's a very well run operation and the women are highly respected in town which is unusual for the time period. I liked all three sisters and found them very similar to the way my own family acts. I found the laudanum scene very funny although I can't believe that it didn't enter any one's head that it might have been dangerous! The situation between Harvey and Gwen's late husband was really interesting and I kept going back on forth on whether I believed him or not. Although I felt that a lot of that drama could have been avoided if he had just told her that one thing she had been looking for.

My only qualm with this book was that the storyline seemed a little slow at times. It wasn't that it was boring. I just felt that certain scenes tended to drag at times, and there was a lot of dialogue that could have been taken out. Also Hank and Gwen, while they had good chemistry, just seemed to magically fall in together. It was like banter one minute, lovey-dovey the next. I would have liked some more development than the cliched falling in love with a stranger story. Overall though, I greatly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the other Gallatin sisters' adventures. It's a fun read that will take you back to the romantic West.
