The Icecutter's Daughter
I am a big fan of Tracie Peterson, I've found myself really enjoying the type of books she writes. I especially enjoy the number of series she has done in an Alaskan setting. I love seeing strong faith filled people fighting the elements and thriving in these difficult to live places!
This book certainly did not disappoint in that regard, within "the Icecutter's Daughter" there is adventure, romance, faith, joy, and major struggles. It has everything within it to make it a fantastic book. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series!
Our main character is Merill, (who is the icecutter's daughter, hence the title!) she live as the only female in the midst of a household full of strong and protective men. With having such intimidating brothers, Merill fears that she will never find someone who is willing to step out and take a chance with her. However when a new man (Ruik) moves to town to partner in his uncle's furniture business, Merill finds herself drawn to him. In spite of their feelings for each other, many forces are at work within the story, that keep pulling them apart, including many accusations, misunderstandings and dangers!
Fantastic Book, right up there with Peterson's "Alaskan Quests" series. Strong faith filled characters that keep you very interested until the very last page!
Absolutely fantastic, and I highly recommend!!
