My Thoughts:

If you've been around for a while, then you know Tracie Peterson is my favorite author. Anytime, I can get one of her books I read it and almost always don't put it down until I'm finished with it. Chasing The Sun is no different.

While her father is away, Hannah Dandridge is doing everything she can to raise her younger brother and sister while keeping things going on the ranch her family recently acquired. Hannah is a strong willed woman who refuses to be forced into doing anything without thinking things through.

William Barnett is headed to his family home after serving in the Civil War. Little does he know his home was taken from his family because of the side they fought for. Once home, William and Hannah face off in several incidents.

There's enough romance, suspense and wonderful story telling to make this another hit.
