She was certain she could strike a match
After being educated in the east, Deborah Vandermark returns to Perkinsville, Texas, where her family is part of the thriving logging industry. She brings along an unexpected companion—her best friend, who is fleeing a wedding and groom she has no interest in. A determined matchmaker, Deborah sets her sights on uniting her brother and friend in what she hopes will be a true love match.
Then Deborah meets Christopher Clayton, the town's new doctor—and quickly realizes she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she studied at college. Soon Deborah is caught between her fascination for doctoring and her obligation to her family. And in the midst of her warring emotions is the doctor himself• Are her tumultuous feelings for the man, or for what he can teach her?

I have read many of Tracie Peterson's books and have been a fan for a very long time and was very happy to have the opportunity to review her most recent release, Embers Of Love. It is the first book in the Striking A Match series, and if this novel serves as any indication, this series is going to be fantastic.
Throughout this easy, and quick, to read novel, you will find themes such as love, women's rights, and the importance of standing up for yourself. The characters are wonderful and I loved how they were developed throughout the novel. It will be interesting to see their development in the next book, Hearts Aglow, due in February 2011.
The storyline was exciting and fresh and will be a thrill for all Christian Historical Fiction fans to read. I very much enjoyed this book.
A great Christmas gift idea for the book lover in your life! I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up.
