Very interesting story of a set of twins, one is a Harvey's girl, but decides to get married & instead of pay off her contract, convinces her sister to finish it for's only 3 months! This is set in Arizona & includes info on the Navajo.

3.5 stars.

A nostalgic reread for me, yet I was surprised by how current the racial identify/inequality threads felt.

Light love story. Sweet twin girl falls in love with a doctor. :-) A little predictable, but cute.

A Veiled Reflection is actually my favorite book from the Westward Chronicles. It is a little different from the first two books. The main character is new to the series, however, we do have a returning minor character.

A Veiled Reflection follows Jillian as she sets out on her own adventure. Her whole life, she has sat at home and watched as her twin sister Judith set off to go and try new things. On a visit home, Judith reviles to Jillian that she is going to get married, and that Jillian need
I thought this book would be more about what a 'Harvey Girl' did in the 1800's. A man named Harvey started restaurants next to train depots in the US and had girls go through a 3 month training before they were hired at a Harvey house to bus tables, clean, and cook. They were very famous becuase each girl was taught one skill, such as pouring coffee, or serving food. Then when each girl did her one duty, the service was very quick. Anyway, the book turned out to be historically interesting, but ...more

I love Tracie Peterson's historical fiction books and I must say this is one of her best. Easily my favorite out of the three in this series. :) What she said about trusting in God and worrying being a sin really caused me to think and ponder about my own lack of trust. Everytime I read one of her books it strengthen's my walk with the Lord. The historical accuracy of this book was on point and I loved the character's personalities. The romance of the two main characters "Jillian and Mac" was su ...more

THE WESTWARD CHRONICLES is a delightful three-book series set around The Harvey House, an establishment offering fine dining along the stops of frontier rail travel. Each book highlights a Harvey Girl and the circumstances and situations that brought them to serve at the Harvey House. Originally published in 1999-2000, THE WESTWARD CHRONICLES were re-packaged in 2005. A sucker for the Old West, I enjoyed the simple charm of these books and the loveable characters created by Tracie Peterson.

Jillian Finds Herself and Mac

I chose a 5 star rating because I loved, yet another Tracie Peterson book! I only want to go on and read more of her books!!
I love the era that these books are written. The characters are well described. And the Christian attitude is one that I can relate to.
Thank you Tracie for the books that I've been looking for!

I love this author. She is amazing and it is reflected in her faith in God. It is refreshing to read a story that includes our Lord throughout the framework of the reading. I highly recommend you read this trilogy and also the Montana series as well .

It too is a delightful story filled with the holy scriptures and the teachings of the bible. A joy to read.

I liked this book a lot. I was hesitant to read it at first, because it didn't have anything to do with the previous characters in the series. However, I decided to read it and I'm glad I did. I truly did enjoy the book.

Torn between 2 and 3 stars..would like to give it a 2-1/2 because it was such a drastic improvement over Book 1 in this series and I really liked most the characters. However, based on its own merit there were too moments where I just wanted to skim read over.

I think this was a wonderful story! Two hearts that were not expecting to find love, did. This was a wonderful story!
