      Simply and beautifully written, "Year of Jubilee" is the story of a young woman, blemished and traumatized by a lonely and violent past; pressed into service as a teen orphan; kidnapped and abused by an ill-tempered husband. Upon Colvin Stalling's death, his property falls to a distant cousin, Rafe Tanner, who travels to claim his inheritance, only to discover that it is already occupied by Colvin's lovely, almost-starving, young widow, Jubilee. Deciding that a marriage of convenience and "busin [...]

      Year of JubileeThis book caught my attention from the very first page. Jubilee was a orphan, then was kidnapped when she was 16 by a bad guy. Was forced to marry him and he was very mean to her. He would leave her alone for months at a time. One day Rafe shows up after buying the place but doesn't know anyone is living there. The bad guy she was married to was his cousin and Rafe got the place before her husband got killed. After Rafe finds her, he marries her since she had no place else to go. [...]

      This is the best Christian Historical Romance I've read this year! I simply loved this story, and the endearing characters of Jubilee and Rafe. Their romance is not without its complications, and my heart goes out to Jubilee as her troubled past and ongoing battles become apparent. Although set in the 19th century, the issues Rafe and Jubilee face transcend time and are so relevant for many today. The Christian message is interwoven well, and not at all preachy or overpowering. If I could 6 star [...]

      I mostly liked this book. It was a little different slant on the "mail order bride" theme, and like most books with this basic premise, I get a little frustrated with the two main characters. It seems they always each fall in love, but they think the other person isn't really interested in making theirs a "real" marriage. This one seemed to go on and on with both parties frustrated. This was my first read by Peggy Trotter and I would read another by her.

      What a wonderful debut! This is a heartwarming Christian romance that I read in one setting because I couldn't put it down. This is a wonderful combination of historical fiction, romance and faith that makes for a very enjoyable read. It is a beautiful story showing that with God's love there is second chances for hurting people. I very much recommend this book to anyone who enjoys good Christian historical fiction and romance. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.

      I couldn't put this book down! I have a newborn and should have been sleeping while he slept, but I just couldn't put this book down. From the beginning to the very end, it was a page turner. A great story of learning to trust and new beginnings. I can't wait to read more works by Peggy Trotter. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    • Joyful says:

      This sweet Christian debut romance by Peggy Trotter during the 1850's is one of those you can't put down. The plot of abuse and mistrust portrays God's love and the beauty He can bring out of ashes. I recommend this book. I can't wait to see what other writings this author does. I was given this book for an honest review.

    • Gail Kittleson says:

      If there's one lesson this novel reinforces, it's that healing takes time. An abused woman like Jubilee meets every stressor with the same fear and distrust, despite the love of her husband and friends. Only accepting God's love releases her from victimhood--and that breakthrough isn't simple, either. Peggy Trotter takes us into Jubilee's heart, and into the Almighty's, too.
