Simone can't imagine that God could love her when all she has known is cruelty. She runs away when her father sells her but, on the lam, she finds people that really care about her. She also learns that God cares about her, and so does Jeffery and falls in love with him.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Emotional Read!! 16 octobre 2005

Ms. Peterson has penned another truly inspirational read with her story "Shelter of Hope." This is really a story about never giving up no matter how severe the situation and always keeping faith, no matter how small it might be.

Simone Dumas knows nothing but heartache in her early years. Her mother and baby brother are killed by her father when they attempt to reach help from the abusive Louis Dumas. Simone, feeling as is her mother has turned her back on her and doesn't love her anymore turns her back first knowing in her heart that she will never see her alive again. She is right. Fast ward two years Simone is just entering womanhood, having learned how to deal with her father's rages. She is shocked when her father comes back to their cabin informing her that she has been sold along with the property to a man she doesn't know. Simone knows that she can't take anymore and wants a better life for herself. With daring she escapes and begins to forge a new path but not without the fear that her father will learn of her deceit.

Jeffery O'Donnell has no idea that the beautiful young girl that has made her way into his office is going to be his future. He is drawn to the sweet Simone, but can tell that she has secrets. She needs a job and has applied to become "A Harvey Girl." Jeffery takes a chance and hires Simone, as he needs respectable girls for many positions. Slowly Simone opens up and with the help of her friends Una and Rachel she begins to heal, add to that the growing attraction that she has for Jeffery, and his gentle patience Simone starts to believe in a happy ending. But, will her past creep up and ruin what she's managed to accomplish?

I knew the instant I read the "bet" (you just need to read the book) between Jeffery and Simone that their relationship was going to be special and romantic. The historical information regarding the "Harvey Girls" was interesting and a fun vehicle for this story. Ms. Peterson always manages to gift the reader with a truly emotional read. As a result I suggest that you find a quite corner to cozy up, have Kleenex ready, and be swept back to a place and time that no longer exists.

This book was interesting. I have been fascinated with the Harvey Girls for a while, but haven't had the opportunity to read much about them (other than watching the Judy Garland movie). I liked the way that Ms. Peterson wove historical elements into her fictional landscape. The country was a different place in the late 1800s and I believe that this story illustrates that. Simone's father held dominion over her in everyway until he sold her--and even then, still controlled her life through fear of discovery. Only with the redeeming power of her confession to God, love of Jeffery can she take back her life--but first she has to learn not only to trust again, but to allow people to become close to her.
A good book and I am going to pick up book 2.

Simone Dumas grew up being tortured by her father after her mother left. Deciding to get rich quick, her evil father SELLS her in a package deal with his cabin and business. She revolts of course, and decides never to care or feel again. Even God is too far away and she will not allow herself to believe in Him. However, while running, she finds that people DO care, and they care about HER! Still unable to care back, she makes many mistakes, and the outcome holds a LOT of surprises and now I am starting book 2.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Captivating Story Line 8 septembre 2000
Par Danielle Raymo - Publié sur
I found this story very well written. I commend Tracie Peterson on her wonderful work! I can hardly wait to start reading the second book to this series. It was historical, romantic, mysterios, and heart-wrenching. The begining may bring you to tears but, the rest will put you on the edge of your seat. Simone escapes from her father whom is less than civil with her, and runs from the law. It's a murder mystery, and a well written Christian novel that taught me many things about my own Christianity. Go with Simone as she goes from Whyoming to Chicago to Topeka. Then becomes a Harvey Girl, while finding her true love and God. Happy Reading!
