Knowing You (Pictures of the Heart, #3) by Tracie Peterson

Knowing You (Pictures of the Heart, #3)

Budding artist May Parker is captivated by the Japanese exhibits at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition and longs to know more about her mother's heritage--which her mother refuses to speak of because of the heartache she left behind in Japan. Wanting to experience more of the exhibits, May works as a Camera Girl--but her curiosity leads her into danger when a suit of samurai armor becomes the target of an elusive art forger.

After ten years apart, May is reunited with her childhood friend Lee Munro, a police detective assigned to keep a watchful eye on the exposition. Their friendship immediately begins to blossom with hints of something more, but when they become entangled in a dangerous heist involving the samurai armor and their love is threatened, can they overcome the odds against them?

With impeccable research and award-winning writing, bestselling author Tracie Peterson presents the dramatic conclusion to her Pictures of the Heart series.


Knowing You is the third book in the Pictures of the Heart series, and it's a great way to end this series. I've learned so much from reading these books, and this one, which takes place in 1909 during the final days of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, especially enlightened me.

May Parker has experienced prejudice all of her life, but her life is now endangered. Will her recent reunion with a childhood friend offer her protection from the bigotry that targets her Japanese/American heritage?

Racism is a prevalent theme in this intriguing story, but author Tracie Peterson buffers it with a strong message of love and forgiveness. She also offers readers romance, suspense, and a touching reunion with the camera girls from the first two books. They've all experienced trials, but their friendship with each other has helped them endure.

Knowing You is an engaging series conclusion, but it can certainly be enjoyed as a standalone novel. I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian fiction.
