Item description for What She Left for Me by Tracie Peterson...

When Jana returns from a missions trip, she discovers that her pastor husband has left with his secretary...along with their bank account. Humiliated, penniless, pregnant, and very much alone, Jana reluctantly turns to her mother, Eleanor, in desperation. Eleanor is haunted by her own guilt and pain, and the arrival of her daughter only serves as a daily reminder of the memories she has long kept hidden away. Will a delightfully eccentric aunt become a catalyst between these two women? Will they allow God's spirit--and God's people--to bring true healing...and a future filled with love?

Reviews - What do customers think about What She Left for Me?

Can't go wrong  Apr 1, 2007
Tracie Peterson is quickly becoming another favorite author of mine. This book didn't fail me in my expectations. It is about a pastor's wife who finds out she is pregnant while on a work and witness trip and comes home to share the news and finds out her husband, the pastor, has left her for another woman. What I found refreshing about this book and storyline is just because we're Christians, doesn't mean our lives are storybook. It is nice to see a realistic point of view and that God can overcome the hurts if we let Him help us.
Help me understand  Mar 7, 2006
I read this book and loved it. I now understand a family memeber better who was sexually abused by their father. I am going to give it to her to read as well. Maybe she can find some forgiveness in her heart for herself not her abuser.

As a Christian, I find it refreshing to read a book with a Christian perspective and not a wordly response.
not the best from tracie but still good  Feb 10, 2006
What She Left for Me by Tracie Peterson is a book that deals with themes of adultery, rape, incest, and child abuse. Tracie gives a warning at the beginning of her book mentioning that parents should first make sure the book is okay for their teenagers to read. Because I am 19 and was able to handle this book, I'm not sure the typical 13-14 year old would be able to. She does not make things graphic like other authors to, but it is implied that inappropriate things are happening.

The books starts off with 26 year old Jana McGuire coming home from Africa from a missions trip. Excited to tell her pastor husband that she is pregnant with their first child, she comes home to a airport with no one there to greet her. Once home, she finds a note from her husband saying that he has fallen in love with his secretary and that he wants a divorce. He withdraws all their money--leaving her penniless, and even takes her family heirloom jewerly. Jana with no one to turn to calls the mother she barley knows and asks if she may move in with her and her great-aunt Taffy. Her mother, Eleanor however is very reluctant with the move-in. Eleanor has secrets from the past that she is trying to hide, a past she just wishes would go away and disappear. Jana, however wants to know those secrets and find out truly who her father is, who she really is, and how her past has affected the choices she has made. Will these woman ever truly be set free from the past secrets and lies that bond them?

This is not the best from Tracie. Not very rich in detail compared to her wonderful Heirs of Montana series and other past works she has done. Neitherless it was still a good read. The book has TONS of dialogue between the three main characters (Jana, Eleanor, and Taffy). Sometimes the dialogue gets so repetive though you just want the main plot to move forward--I kept looking ahead to find out what happens. I still enjoyed it, but it wouldn't be something I would read again. If you want a REALLY good book about family secrets and lies told read Lynn Austin's "Eve's Daughter's".
Draws you in-- you won't want to put it down!  Jan 11, 2006
This is an excellent book! From the opening pages to the close of the book, I was constantly wondering what was to come and did not want to put the book down! Tracie (respectfully) writes about some very sensitive issues that some women (Christian or not!) may face in their lives, but that must be dealt with in order to overcome the past and move forward to have a healthy future. While it may be difficult for some to read, the message of confronting your past and forgiveness is powerful and necessary.

This is definitely a book for adults and merits the authors warning in the foreward of the book.
Deep content  Dec 10, 2005
This book has some really deep issues in it. Women are forced to find redemption and forgiveness to be able to move on with their lives.
I do have to admit: I skimmed over quite a bit of it. There are repetitive, long (page after page) dialogues between the women. The content of these conversations is good, it just got a little old and tiresome to read the banter back and forth, back and forth.....
