A Romantic Times Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, CBA best-selling author Tracie Peterson is acclaimed for her blend of romance and adventure. In this tale of 1886 Texas, a caring young woman can heal the physical and emotional wounds of others but can’t mend her own hurting heart. As Deborah Vandermark pursues medicine under the tutelage of her beau Dr. Christopher Clayton, she soon realizes her West Texas lumber town isn’t ready for a woman doctor.
Yet she has reason to hope—until Christopher abruptly breaks off their blossoming relationship and rushes back home to his family. When a sobering truth emerges and Deborah’s dream begins to fade, she fears she must turn her back on the love that’s taken root in her heart. While love and hope battle with hate and despair, Barbara McCulloh’s gripping narration captures the intensity and inspiration of Peterson’s compelling Hearts Aglow.
