A Moment In Time by Tracie Peterson


Please know that this review will NOT contain any spoilers!

"Alice Chesterfield is a woman pursued. Having survived an attack that left her scarred and her father dead, she is never free from the fear and memories of the man who is responsible.

Texas seems to be an answer to Alice's prayers, and when she has the opportunity to relocate to a ranch near Dallas, Robert Barnett captures her attention. Unlike any man Alice has ever known, Robert doesn't worry about the obstacles that stand in their way--and he hardly seems to notice the scar she bears.

But there are storm clouds gathering; devastating information about her family comes to light, threatening Alice's peaceful sanctuary. Disillusioned, Alice must learn to place her trust in God as she seeks a measure of peace for her future. . .and for her heart." (Please note that the above quoted text is the book description, as found on the reverse of the book, not written by me.)

I saw this book,and really thought it would be one I would fall in love with. But unfortunately that just didn't happen for me. I tried many times to get into this book, and really engross myself in it. The story once I got reading it, just didn't do much to keep me hooked. There were many times while reading this book that I almost had to force myself to finish a chapter.

I found that parts of the book would draw out really slow, then in other parts it would just fly by which I wasn't a fan of. There are characters in the book (Marty) who are not the main character, but yet for a good bit, the book seemed to be more about Marty rather than Alice. Also the relationship between Alice and Robert was just too un-realistic for me. It felt like on one page they are just getting acquainted and the next they are suddenly in love.... just too rushed for me.

Overall I would check out other books from this author, and give her another shot. But as for this book, it just wasn't for me.

Disclosure: I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers to read, and give my final thoughts on.
