(EBOOK/PDF) [Morning's Refrain] ¸ Tracie Peterson
Enjoyed how Phoebe and Dalton were able to put their differences aside uickly and we didn t have to spend half of the book listening to them argue I think the first book was dramatic and action packed but this one was still very fast paced with its own enerous share of epic moments Altogether if you enjoyed Dawn s Prelude you will be than happy with Morning s Refrain RereadI just didn t care for the characters as much this time around They were a little whiny Loved this book What a sweet bookromance action mending friendships I love that Tracie continues the stories of the sub characters as well Off to the next book in the series This wasn t really a bad book and the storylines were pretty interesting but I always tend to prefer a character driven novel and the characters in this book largely rubbed me the wrong wayFirst Yuri s The Oracles Golem (The Oracle good character never was portrayed So all Iot of him was an annoying prideful I want my way kind of uy I didn t know why Phoebe liked him at all even as a friend and I especially don t know why Dalton liked him I would have appreciated if their childhood friendship had been established If the plot developed that and focused on their competition it would have been intriguing Also the way Yuri just opened up about his weaknesses at the end was just unrealistic No man is like thatWhat bugged me about Dalton was that he seemed very weak He needed help pursuing Phoebe He couldn t understand his mother s reason for hiding the traumatic past and he didn t know how to handle his familial Gray pedigree Also I didn t et a strong Let It Bree / Cant Buy Me Louie (Harlequin Duets, grasp of his personality When interacting with Phoebe he was this joking teasing fun lovinguy But with Evie he was a bland no personality but caring brother I honestly can t tell you one personality trait that he consistently had throughout the book I enerally liked Lydia in the first book but she seemed entirely overbearing in this one The amount she worried about Dalton meeting his brothers and she repeated the same worry over and over ot extremely tiring by the third time she mentioned it That plot point could have added something to the story but it didn t develop into anything Plus she mentioned that she didn t think the Grays could be redeemed but that laring unbiblical belief was never really addressed It did make me wonder if one of the Gray siblings had changed but speaking of that For all of Lydia s warnings that Marston and Mitchell were manipulative well they were completely unnecessary From T it is Dalton Linduist with his swarthy ood looks who is the most intriguing part of this isolated existence Despite their unusual first encounter Phoebe dares to hope that the spark she feels between them is returned in eual measure When Yuri Belikov Dalton's best friend begins to pursue her
I enjoyed catching up again with Lydia and Evie from and seeing Dolton all One Wish (Thunder Point, grown up I enjoyed book 1 a bit I think mainly because there was a bit suspense included in that oneEven though Dolton had uestions about his past you could clearly see the influence Lydia and Kjell had on him and contributing to theood man he was Even though his courtship with Phoeboe were brief I enjoyed how they didn t play La santa anoressia. Digiuno e misticismo dal Medioevo a oggi games and knew what they wantedAgain the characters had a few spiritual lessons to learn in their journey and I especially liked how Zelda was angry with the missionaries who tried to control the local people andet them to conform to the white peoples way in order to be saved How often do we actually push people away because we think they need to fit our mold for Christianity instead of just introducing Jesus to them as is Looking forward to reading the third and final book in this series This one was even better than the first book The characters seemed much real in this one and while there were conflicts between characters it was believable since Dalton s brothers played a very minor role in the story I loved seeing how Dalton dealt with their truly evil characters and it made his faith stronger Can t wait until the next book comes out Morning s Refrain is an excellent continuation of the Song of Alaska series I m so Remembering and Repeating glad weot to read Dalton s story Dalton is just turning 18 and learning the truth about his past Phoebe is moving to Sitka with her family and discovering all this new place has to offer including the handsome Dalton I m not sure I am 100% on board with how most of the love stories in this series revolve around love at first sight It makes the falling in love seem very uick I can see it being a theme of the series but part of me wants them to et to know each other before I am convinced they are actually in love My favorite aspect of this book was that it was not predictable or did not follow the common path With the way Dalton acted in the beginning I fully expected him to o to Kansas City trust his Gray relatives Mona Lisa get into trouble because of their underhanded dealings learn his lesson make things right and return to Alaska havingrown and with a better appreciation for what he already had However this common route was not the one taken and I was so happy for it Instead he learns about his past Fly Away Home (South Africa Series, goes to Kansas City and proves himself to already be a strong and intelligent man able to stand hisround against his crafty siblings I also. Phoebe Robbins uickly realizes that her life in Sitka Alaska will be a far cry from what she knew in the East The weather seems to be constantly rainy oods are often scarce and there's little entertainment save the small orchestra she joins There are also plenty of men actively seeking a wife bu.
He first meeting they insulted everyone Dalton and Evie cared about That s not a manipulative tactic Manipulative people don t blurt out all of their opinions There was no way Dalton would think Huh maybe my mother was overreacting My siblings aren t too bad I felt the way Evie acted around her siblings was also a little unrealistic although it was nice to see that she didn t feel as confident as she actedPhoebe was a ood character and the heartbreaking plot twist that affected her plotline was done very well But very heartbreaking I also liked her relationship with her mother and kind of how she hated living in Sitka at first Although we didn t actually see much of her hating Sitka we only heard her talk about itThe plot of this story definitely had a lot of potential and the plot was ood I just felt that there wasn t enough character development and structure to actually convey the plot 45 starsI really enjoyed reading Morning s Refrain however I just feel like there was something missing There was very little action and any conflict was resolved very easily view spoiler I really thought Dalton would wrestle with his family and their influence I also thought his older brothers would cause problems for Dalton and Evie since they weren t in prison and were making threats against them That whole situation seemed to resolve very uickly Which isn t necessarily a bad thing but made the book a little slower hide spoiler Loved itOnce again an easy read from Tracie Peterson The time period and setting are fascinating to me Not particularly fond of the abrupt ending She definitely leaves you wanting to know about the lives and happenings of her characters This was a really ood historical suspenseful romance I really loved the character building and the plot It deals with several hard issues very well This book makes so much sense after reading Dawn s Prelude Chapter 1 of Morning s Refrain fills in all the necessary details from Dawn s Prelude Setting is Sitka Alaska My first Tracie Peterson book to readlisten to No cursing nothing objectionable Christian Main character will not kiss his bride until the wedding Broaches homosexuality briefly with no detail and drinking A love story with a little of Alaska thrown in It s not as syrupy sweet and romantic as some other Christian novels I have read I would put it in a different category although this type of book is not my favorite Christian romance It is tastefully done Takes place in 1870s to 1890s Sitka Alask. Hoebe finds herself in a precarious position Did she misread Dalton's interest How will her decision between the two men affect their friendship And what of the long buried secret in her own family's past In the challenges ahead Phoebe will learn of conseuence and forgivenessand the power of love.
