Tracie Peterson was one of my favorite authors about 20 years ago. I got started on "The Broadmoor Legacy" after buying the first book on Kindle when it was on sale for $1.99. While on Spring Break vacation a week ago, I read the entire trilogy.

The series is about three cousins: Fanny, Sophie & Amanada. Set in the 1890's, their grandfather's death leaves wealth to the three families. Each book tells the story of one of the cousins.

Book 1... Fanny, the only cousin who actually inherits a shar

This book was the final volume of a trilogy about three Broadmoor cousins, and this was Amanda's story. Things become much more tense in this one than the previous two; a real page turner at times. I did feel that Sophie seemed unreal at times because of the quick way her emotions seemed to go from one extreme to another, Two characters were so evil I didn't like them at all, but that added to the story for me. Financial ruin, betrayal, family relationships, forced marriage,and true love are all ...more

Maybe I couldn't get as into this story because I hadn't read the others in the series? It was a little bland with law and not a lot of action for half of the book. I did like the end as the action picked up, it was an exciting ending to an other wise slow read. I loved the location as my family is from The Thousand Island area, so it was fun to imagine it as it was so long ago. Worth the read, but I probably wouldn't read it a second time.

This book lacked a good editor. Any Christian emphasis is tangential. It was okay to read on a cold day with a blanket covering you but not a book to learn anything. I did not find it particularly entertaining. While not mushy or sentimental, it was too perdictable.

A fine conclusion to the series. I believe a happily ever after was provided for the three leading ladies. This is a Christian novel so it is a clean book but it was missing the fun. You can still have a fun book and be clean at the same time.

I completed the third book in the Broadmoor Series, hoping that there would be some redeeming qualities, because these authors are well-known and prolific. I was disappointed.

I have read a couple of Tracie Peterson’s books and I have read one book by Judith Miller. I have tremendously enjoyed their books so I was looking forward to reading A Surrendered Heart. This book is the third book in The Broadmoor Legacy series. I have not read the first two books in the series, but I didn’t feel like that hindered my reading experience in the least. Having enjoyed these authors’ individual books, I knew the writing was going to be terrific, and it was. I did not particularly ...more

This is the third book in the series and follows the Broadmoor extended family cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Frances (Fanny) in the Rochester, New York area during 1899-1900. It continues the account of the three young women which began in A Daughter’s Inheritance and An Unexpected Love.
When cholera forces many of the Broadmoor family members to flee to their Thousand Islands summer home early, Amanda remains behind, stricken with the disease and quarantined at the Home for the Friendless where sh

Enjoyed reading the book very much! I read the first one in the series and thought it was a little slow-paced. I couldn't find the second book in the series, but I did find the third book. It was much more fast-paced than the first book, and it didn't matter that I had not read the second book (pretty easy to figure out what had transpired before this one). Loved that Amanda's creepy husband got what he deserved and she ended up with the right guy at the end!

A nice ending to this trilogy about the Broadmoor cousins. This book centers on Amanda, the daughter of Jonas & Victoria. She attempts to start her training for medical school and is soon caught up in a cholera outbreak. What the book is really about is how evil some people can be, how seeking the wrong things in life can lead to sorrow and heartbreak for so many people and how God is faithful even in the midst of that.

I didn’t read the first two books in this series, but there nothing in this installment that induces me to go back and peruse them. Everything in this novel is over-the-top. The evil suitor is so bad that he is nearly comical in his portrayal. He did everything but laugh sinisterly while twirling his moustache. The would-be bride is overly noble in her resolution to sacrifice her life for the well-being of the greater family. Her true love is nearly invisible as he gallantly steps aside to atten ...more

The writing is not amazing but I still loved this series. The last book was definitely my favorite and each got better from the first. I really love Fanny and her cousins. The ending was slightly predictable but in a good way, meaning it ended how I hoped it would end. Any book I read in two days and stay up until 1am reading deserves 5 stars.

Wonderful

what a great finish to the series, sophie, Amanda and fanny have to face trials and tribulations, Jonas life is spiralling out of control, he finds a solution that he believes will save him from ruination,but at the cost of Amanda's future...this story has nightstand lows for all broadmores, the best book in the series
Judith Philbrick
An excellent trilogy

Enjoyed this series. Three cousins and life lessons learned. Since I live in Rochester I am very familiar with the geography. The St Lawrence river also familiar. Author researched well and brought the romance and beauty together for a wonderful story. Well worth the money.

Oh my heart for Amanda from the time the book started to the end. What an amazing story! I have many questions that will probably never be answered. I'm glad all threw Broadmoor women got the happy ending they deserved.

This was a wonderful end to a fun trilogy! This conclusion to the story about the three Broadmoor cousins was filled with many twists and turns. The focus of this book was Amanda (Jonas Broadmoor’s daughter) who starts off the book battling for her life. She then becomes a method of escape for her father’s ill decisions. Sophie and Paul continue growing as individuals and a family. This all occurs while the long awaited return of Michael occurs! It was wonderful to read through the reunion of th ...more

It was so easy to get caught up with the plot of this story. There were so many twists to the story and it moved along very quickly. Very good and spiritual application at the end.

Very interesting premise, not original of course, but I read the interior cover blurb and thought hmmm this might be a good read.
I was wrong, too simplistic the one character was so evil one would expect to see horns. The ending was too pat and abrupt.
Many issues were left unaddressed. I think this idea could have gone another way and been great, as it happened, this just didn't work for me.

The one thing that really bothered me most was how you could just see the abuse one character was headin

While I am not normally a huge fan of history or romance, this book did a fantastic job of keeping me engaged. Also, while this is a second book in the series, and I haven't read the first one, I had no problem following the storyline. The only thing that I didn't like is that there was not a lot of stuff that really happened in the book. For this reason it took me a couple of days to finish as I found it hard to read for more then short periods of time. Maybe its because I didn't read the first ...more

Just "eh" for me. I came in on this series at number three and so missed out on some of the other cousins stories but it was fairly easy to catch up. It was good but not much more than that.
