A Surrendered Heart ~ by Tracie Peterson and Judity Miller

A Surrendered Heart is the third book in The Broadmoor Legacy series by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. I liked the story very much, however, I have not read the first two books in the series, and at times was a bit confused. (Series’ can be a bit tricky because a writer doesn’t want to repeat all that has happened in previous books, yet if the stories are closely tied together, it is needed somewhat.) Still, the storyline was great, and I was completely drawn in, having a variety of emotions stirred throughout. The characters had depth, the story moved quickly and by the end, I couldn’t read it fast enough. The ending was highly satisfying, with a strong reminder that God is in control. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, but I might suggest beginning with the first book in the series.


A Surrendered Heart
By Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller

Escape into the history, opulence, and elegance of the Thousand Islands.

When cholera strikes Rochester, New York, in the spring of 1899, the members of the Broadmoor family flee to their castle home in the Thousand Islands. But Amanda Broadmoor, who has always held a special compassion for the less fortunate, resolves to remain in Rochester with Dr. Blake Carstead, working to help control the spread of the dreaded disease.

However, much more than Amanda’s health hangs in the balance. Mishandling of the family fortune threatens to leave the Broadmoor family penniless – and even willing to sacrifice Amanda’s future. Will she be forced to marry a man she disdains in order to save the Broadmoor legacy?

  1. I absolutely loved “A Surrendered Heart”! Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller did a fantastic job with this one!

    The plot was extremely strong and packed full of story line twists and turns, sub plots, romance, family espionage, death, and the list goes on.

    I put up a more in-depth review on my own site:
