About the Book

Knowing You Title: Knowing You 
Series: Pictures of the Heart #3 
Author: Tracie Peterson 
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers 
Release Date: November 7, 2023 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
****I received a complimentary book from publishers, publicists, NetGalley, book tours, and or authors.  A review was not required and all opinions and ideas expressed are my own.**** 

Could a captivating art exhibit hold the key to truth--and love? 

Budding artist May Parker is captivated by the Japanese exhibits at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition and longs to know more about her mother's heritage--which her mother refuses to speak of because of the heartache she left behind in Japan. Wanting to experience more of the exhibits, May works as a Camera Girl--but her curiosity leads her into danger when a suit of samurai armor becomes the target of an elusive art forger. 

After ten years apart, May is reunited with her childhood friend Lee Munro, a police detective assigned to keep a watchful eye on the exposition. Their friendship immediately begins to blossom with hints of something more, but when they become entangled in a dangerous heist involving the samurai armor and their love is threatened, can they overcome the odds against them?

My Review
Knowing You is my first time reading a novel by Tracie Peterson. This Christian Historical Romance held so many great messages for readers as well as telling a wonderful story. The themes of lasting friendship, forgiveness, being nonjudgmental, hope, and of course, love were throughout the book. 

The main characters artist May Parker and her childhood friend Detective Lee Munro went ten years without seeing each other. The Munro family had left the neighborhood because of "too many Asians" around them according to Lee's parents. Being this book takes place in 1909 many prejudices were alive and very strong. May's father is white and her mother is Japanese. Racism is a major topic in this novel as it touches many lives.

 When May and Lee run into each other at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle, their friendship is renewed as if they hadn't seen each other for ten years. I loved how not only was this novel about love and romance, but it also held a mystery, a well-planned heist, beautiful descriptions of Japanese culture, and a lot of danger for May and Lee. This story shows many spiritual qualities of a Christian as the couple tries to win over Lee's family with kindness, forgiveness, and prayer.

There were so many aspects to enjoy as I read Knowing You, from the suspense to the family drama, and keeping hope alive for many of the characters in the story. If you love reading Christian Historical Romance, then you will love Knowing You and Author Tracie Peterson.
