Remember Me by Tracie Peterson: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

From the Yukon to Seattle, the hope of a new beginning waits just around the corner.

Addie Bryant is haunted by her past of heartbreak and betrayal. After her beau, Isaac Hanson, left the Yukon, she made a vow to wait for him. When she's sold to a brothel owner after the death of her father, Addie manages to escape with the hope that she can forever hide her past and the belief that she will never have the future she's always dreamed of.

Years later, Addie has found peace in her new life as a photographer, training Camera Girls to operate and sell the Brownie camera. During the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Expo in Seattle, Addie is reunited with Isaac, but after the path her life has taken, she's afraid to expose the ugliness of her former life and to move toward the future they had pledged to each other.

When her past catches up with her, Addie must decide whether to run or to stay and face her wounds in order to embrace her life, her future, and her hope in God.

Tracie Peterson is an absolute master at writing historical fiction... creating stories full of historical details that put you right there. Remember Me is no exception, taking readers back to the early 1900s during the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Expo... which is not a subject I knew a whole lot about. It had a great blend of history and adventure, with some romance mixed in too. It also had a great message of faith that was woven beautifully throughout the story as well. 

This one was a bit of a tough one for me to get into personally, but I feel like this likely had more to do with ME than the book itself. It touches on some more serious topics, and deals with Addie being sold by her brothers, etc. While it has that great faith message, it's certainly not the lightest read...and lately I'm certainly finding myself craving those lighter reads for more of an escape. That said, this story was wonderfully written and an enjoyable read nonetheless. I do think that were I in a different headspace while reading, I'd have enjoyed it all that much more. 

If you enjoy historical fiction, this is certainly one to check out.
