The Miner’s Lady
Very reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, The Miner’s Lady brings you to a northern Minnesota double love story with the Panetta’s and the Calarco’s. Chantel Panetta comes home to Ely, Mn after a year visiting her relatives in Italy, only to find her sister has fallen in love with Orlando Calarco. Chantel hopes to talk some sense into her sister while at the same time tries to protect her from their father ever finding out, so she ends up dealing with Orlando’s brother Dante, while trying to keep the family at peace. Through a series of good and bad events, both the Panetta’s and Calarco’s realize they must deal with family and job issues with how God is trying to lead them.
I loved that this book was set in northern Mn, being from the other side of northern Mn myself! The research that Tracie Peterson puts into her books make them fun to learn actual historical information! I would have liked to see a little more character development for Orlando and Chantel’s sister, but it was an enjoyable story that transported me back in time in my home state.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishing, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review.
I give The Miner’s Lady by Tracie Peterson 4 out of 5 stars.
