Twilight's Serenade

Some people travel all over the world in search of love while others to avoid it. That's exactly the purpose in Britta Lindquist's life. She has loved a man since she was a child but because of a wandering eye and whiskey, this love was removed from her and given to another. Leaving in search of a way to forget, she finds love in music and her ability to create it using a violin. Once she is offered a first chair position in England with a new orchestra, Britta must face her toughest choice in dealing with the first love of her life.

Yuri Belikov has fallen into a pattern of reaching for whiskey to answer the problems life has handed him in his difficult situations. Waking up one morning married to a prostitute and subsequently having a child from her as well, has completely turned his world on end. Not the life he dreamed one day. Yet the demon of alcohol has held him captive for years and it's only in that pursuit that Yuri abandoned his "wife" and little girl Laura, in searching for answers.

Suddenly one day, a mining accident leaves Yuri as the only survivor and during his recovery he learns that God has never abandoned him but it's been Yuri that has walked away from God. Fighting his addiction to alcohol he comes face to face with the God of his past and finds healing and hope to return to the life he left behind. Yet he isn't prepared for the life he is about to discover when he arrives. Does he have what it takes to survive in life and will he cling to the God he has found or will old habits never die?

I received the book, Twilight's Serenade by Tracie Peterson, compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. Since this is the third book in the series Song of Alaska, and not having read the first two, I could easily pick this one up and enjoy it as a stand alone book. I look forward to reading the first two in the series to see the beginnings of the these characters and how they emerge. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars as the characters and the decisions they make are truly real and believable.

But Britta's other great love is for the violin, and her talent is recognized by Brenton Maltese, a conductor from England.
