Book Review - The Miner's Lady

The Miner's Lady
by Tracie Peterson
Ely, Minnesota 1890 - The Panetta and Calarco families have been feuding for generations.  What will happen when Chantal Panetta's sister Isabella falls in love with Orlando Calarco, who reciprocates the feeling?  What lengths will Dante Calarco go to keep his younger brother marrying a Panetta?
This book is rather like the classic Romeo and Juliet story, except the ending is much better.  I enjoyed it but it was quite predictable.  There were a few twists that kept me guessing for a few pages.  My favourite character was Mrs Barbato (Nonna Barbato), Dante and Orlando's grandmother.
I would recommend this book to someone who was looking for a nice, light read.
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Please note: I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest review.
