It's as if Tina Peterson Scott has a window she looks through into the past when she writes of days gone by. The language, the lifestyle, the culture and habits all ring true. Anyone who is interested in the past should find a satisfying read in "My Sweet Danish Rose."
Alone in the world, and counting on love to triumph... Berta Ericksen is an energetic fifteen-year-old with a mind of her own. Last seen in "Farewell, My Denmark" (2013), and with visions of happily ever after, she impulsively stays behind when her family joins the 1863 Mormon pilgrimage to America. When Berta finds herself homeless and alone in her Mormon faith, three men add to the confusion and danger of her life; the prominent man who deceives and defrauds both her and her family, but is the only one who offers her shelter; the childhood sweetheart who romances but hasn't proposed; the handsome stableman that stole her Book of Mormon. Berta must uncover their hidden motives and make decisions to save her faith, her heart, and her future. .
Tina Peterson Scott was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. Books played an important part in her childhood, and for much of it, she could be found nestled against a branch high in their pecan tree, reading. Her favorites were fantasy, and mystery. It delighted Tina when her mother read to her from Grimm’s Fairytales and the stories of Hans Christian Andersen.
Tina and her husband have seven children and a growing number of grandchildren. Other than large family get-togethers involving lots of food and fun, she enjoys writing, watercolor painting, long walks, ice cream, and traveling to Europe—especially to her father’s ancestral home of Denmark.
Life is an adventure!
