The Pen Review: Through the Fire

Through the fire.jpg

Through the Fire by Beth Trissel

Genre: Historical Romance

Publisher: Wild Rose Press


At the height of the French and Indian War, a young English widow ventures into the colonial frontier in search of a fresh start. She never expects to find it in the arms of the half-Shawnee, half-French warrior who makes her his prisoner in the raging battle to possess a continent––or to be aided by a mysterious white wolf and a holy man.


What I liked: Beth Trissel is one of my favorite authors. How perchance did I get to read her work? It was through a contest and ever since then I knew that she was something special. Through the Fire is no exception! This lovely tale will embark any reader on a journey to when differences of culture divided us and a time when America was the place of expansion and dreams. From the plot to the characters, everything was well written. I felt that I was on the journey with Rebecca and her sister as they try to reach their uncle on the treacherous journey across the mountains. What will happen next? You will just have to read the book!


  1. Thanks for the lovely review and your enthusiasm for Through the Fire.

  2. I know Beth writes of an area and era that are both dear to her heart, and that love comes through. It makes her books special.

  3. Yes it does! Thanks Beth for allowing us to review your work! :)
