Reviews for Miner's Lady

Library Journal Reviews 2013 September #2

Romeo and Juliet were tame compared with the fireworks surrounding the families of Dante Calarco and Chantel Panetta. Their respective younger siblings, Orlando and Isabella, are in love, and Isabella asks Chantel to distract Dante so she can spend time with Orlando, a distraction that leads to a second case of star-crossed lovers in the family. Meanwhile, their fathers are determined to carry on the feud they brought with them from Italy to Minnesota, until an accident at the mine where they work changes Papa Panetta's mind and he feels God is leading him to make peace. Unfortunately, the elder Calarco is determined to see the Panettas dead--and his son with them if he leaves the family. VERDICT Peterson delivers another solid historical romance, and fans will be eager to read the next installment in her frontier series (The Ice Cutter's Daughter; The Quarryman's Bride).
