Jun 06, Elisa rated it really liked it Shelves: What I like about this book is that it corresponds well with its previous sequel. The characters don't change, the story is kept up with the last book, and the morals are all the same. I admit that this book is an easy read It's good in a way, but I dare say that it could be almost boring.
However, I am fond of the morals of this story and the Christian theme that is prevalent in this series. I love how the Eh I love how the characters are so thoughtful, free-spirited and very devout Christians. There's a thoughtfulness about this novel which I like. Also, there is some "suspense" not really suspense but conflict which kept me reading. Feb 29, Shawn rated it liked it.
It starts off in such a powerful way but then I felt let down as the story progressed and nothing was ever done about what happened. And then the love story between Christopher and Deborah is now just starting to feel that it is being drug out too long.http://preview.bluetangent.org/sitemap9.xml
Hearts Aglow, Striking a Match Series #2
I was really disappointed because I like the writing and growing up in East Texas myself so much of the setting is so familiar to me, I Okay I was really disappointed because I like the writing and growing up in East Texas myself so much of the setting is so familiar to me, I really like the idea of this book being set in an area and industry that my ancestors were involved in but just wanted a little more out of the book. Looking forward to finishing up this series in the next book. Jun 26, LadyS rated it liked it. I really didn't experience falling in this deep love that was written of the main character.
I was thinking to myself when did this romance get so serious? Lots of rushed romances in this book were more annoying instead of relevant. Apr 08, Rev.

Stuart from the first novel is being his evil self, and Mother Vandermark finds herself pursued by two different men seeking her hand in marriage. The mill is set on fire, the town suffers damage from a hurricane, and family tragedy causes a wedding to be postponed. Probably one of Peterson's best books that I have read Dec 19, Dee rated it really liked it. This was a great sequel to the first book, Embers of Love, and though the novel came to a conclusion, it still left me wanting more which will come about in the way of the third installment in the trilogy.
Deborah and Christopher's love is growing, but his secrets might turn one of them from the other, and Deborah's great admirer, Mr. Wythe is back in town! Then to add to the suspense racial hate is wreaking havoc on their small town. Horrifying deaths, beatings, and vandalism. And on top of tha This was a great sequel to the first book, Embers of Love, and though the novel came to a conclusion, it still left me wanting more which will come about in the way of the third installment in the trilogy.

I can't wait to read the conclusion to this enjoyable series!
May 03, Megan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely love all of the books that I have read by Tracie Peterson and when I started reading this series I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. The first book "Embers Of Love" must be read first because these books are a continuing story. Tracie Peterson is one of the best Christian fiction authors if not the best and she is my favorite author. May 12, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: Christopher Clayton continue their working relationship—he is teaching her to be a doctor—as well as their courtship.
Read my complete review here: Nov 29, Tiffany rated it liked it Shelves: The book had valid points and was well meaning but I had a hard time getting into the story. I have read other books by Tracie Peterson that were sequels but there was a different main character in each story like a sibling. But to find out that isn't the case with this story I was a little disappointed. The book was a clean read and there was nothing really wrong with it I just couldn't get into it.
Dec 20, Stacy R rated it did not like it Shelves: I was very much looking forward to the second in this series. The characters are endearing and interesting. However I ended up stopping this book due to the graphic emphasis on the KKK and their torture and two murders of a secondary characters' family. I couldn't get past that storyline. I know it's historical and is a huge scar in American reality Jun 21, Joyce rated it really liked it Shelves: Another great historical fiction book by Tracie Peterson. The novel Hearts Aglow continues the saga of Deborah Vandermark and her family.
In this novel, Peterson delves further into the racial injustices the African-American people suffered in the late 's in Texas. Once again, she weaves Christian values and beliefs into the plot in a very meaningful way. I thought this novel was even better than the 1st novel in the Strike a Match series.

The second book about life in southern Texas not long after the Civil War and there is still unrest between the blacks and whites of that small town where the main industry is logging and the large Sawmill. As well as the troubles that surround a young lady who wishes to be a doctor and the discriminate feelings towards women doctors. Oct 14, Lucy Bilik rated it really liked it Shelves: I have not read the 1st book in series of 3, however it was a great break for me from daily childcare. Not a light read with a happy ending but the one that really makes you think and appreciate freedoms and comforts that we have in our times.
Oct 14, Mary rated it really liked it. A good mystery intertwined with race relations during this time period. At times the stories are so gripping they're hard to read but yet know you must as this was the reality for black people and tries to explain in part the horrible prejudices at the time and how far we haven't come. Look forward to book 3 in the series "Hope Rekindled". It seemed to jump around too much with the religious and racial. That interrupted the flow of a good story. I understand it was a part of the story but maybe just a bit too much at a time.
Mar 28, Lynne Young rated it it was amazing. This is a book two in the Striking A Match series and was full of character development, continuing story lines, and drama. It is very much a page turner that I couldn't put down! Can't wait for Book 3! Tracie Peterson is a bestselling author who writes in both historical and contemporary genres.
