Remember Me by Tracie Peterson.

From the Yukon to Seattle, the hope of a new beginning waits just around the corner. Addie Bryant is haunted by her past of heartbreak and betrayal. After her beau, Isaac Hanson, left the Yukon, she made a vow to wait for him. When she's sold to a brothel owner after the death of her father, Addie manages to escape with the hope that she can forever hide her past and the belief that she h awill never have the future she's always dreamed of. Years later, Addie has found peace in her new life as a photographer, training Camera Girls to operate and sell the Brownie camera. During the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Expo in Seattle, Addie is reunited with Isaac, but after the path her life has taken, she's afraid to expose the ugliness of her former life and to move toward the future they had pledged to each other. When her past catches up with her, Addie must decide whether to run or to stay and face her wounds in order to embrace her life, her future, and her hope in God. My Take: I really enjoyed this book by Tracie Peterson. I had never heard about the Camera Girls who took pictures during the Expo in Seattle Washington. I knew from the beginning that there might be trouble from her brothers and I was waiting with baited breath with every turn of the page. Addie was a seeker in the Christian faith and she had some questions for both her friends in Seattle and Isaac. I could understand her hesitancy in getting back together with Isaac after everything that had happened to her since they had last seen each other. I got angry at her brothers for the way they treated her but I had to keep telling myself that that was the way the world was back then. I would highly recommend this book if you like stories of redemption and historical fiction with a spiritual side. I received a review copy of this book from the author for my personal review.
