Westward Chronicles #1: A Shelter of Hope

Posted by Amy Kittel on January 13th, 2006 filed in Tracie Peterson

Published: 1998 302 Pages

The first in a series of 3 about the Fred Harvey Girls on the Santa Fe Railroad. Simone has lost her love, trust, respect for all people. When an accident happens she runs and is subsequently wanted by the law. Will she run far enough to get away from her conscience? Can she accept friendship and kindness from others? This was a great book. (typo on the first page… can you find it??)

A Shelter of Hope makes reference to a town, Lindsborg, where Julotta, another of Tracie’s books takes place. If you like this book/series, Tracie has another Harvey Girls Series, Desert Roses, which is also very good.

Finished Jan 2006
