About the Author
Author of the Divide Series books, Six World Sagas, and international bestseller Written in the Stars, Tracy believes her writing is a little piece of magic God gave her.
“Life is hard enough. I want stories to transport me to another place. A magical place, where I can stretch out my hand to touch the wonder of this vast universe God created. A universe more extraordinary than we can begin to comprehend. These are the stories I love best, and the ones I love to write. Welcome to my worlds!” –T.E. Bradford

Thanks so much for stopping by to hear a bit about Child of Destiny, book two in the Divide Series. I’m so excited to share it with all of you!
In this second book in the series, one of the characters enjoys a special treat. This yumminess goes by the name of Hazelnut Delight. It’s a simple, but fantastic recipe that only a very select few will receive. Shhh!!! It’s a family secret!
HAZELNUT DELIGHT RECIPE
What you’ll need:
2 homemade (or your favorite store-bought) pie crusts
1 jar of hazelnut spread
1. Roll out (or unroll) pie crust.
2. Using a spoon, coat the crust in a thin layer of hazelnut spread.
3. Start at one side and carefully roll the pie crust up (leave it resting on the seam to help seal.
4. Pinch the ends to close and seal them.
5. Cut the roll into slices (approx 1/2″).
6. Set the slices on their sides on a baking sheet. These will get gooey/sticky as they bake, so you may want to use a silicone baking liner.
TIP: If you like crunchier, flakier crusts, let the rolls loosen as you set them down, opening up the pinwheel shape a bit. If you like more solid, dense treats, leave them tightly rolled. Or, like me, let them land however they will and get a bit of both. 😉
7. Bake at 375 for approx 20-25 minutes – until they are a deep golden brown.
Let cool a bit, and enjoy! You’ll be amazed at the yummy flavor. And as you read, you’ll be able to appreciate the scent and taste right along with the character. Happy Reading (and eating)!
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and was excited when this book came out. I already knew that the author would blow me away with her imagination and I was not disappointed at all. I am glad to see that my friends Nova, Quentin and Laura are off on another journey together. Hands down my favorite character is Nova. I love the way she handles herself in stressful situations and never backs down from anything.
What I found a little ironic was the storyline about the fear of Civil War breaking out. With the turmoil that 2020 has thrown at us this year, I have heard rumors about a possible Civil War right here in the United States. Nova is on high alert as the threat draws near. I was anxious reading the story because I know the author is good at throwing twists in her stories. I say to Nova, “get your armor on and be prepared.” I loved this quote in the book, “Life isn’t fair. Things are thrust at us we can’t control.But events don’t define us-how we respond does.” I thought this was a good example of the trials we go through in life. We may face difficult situations, but we need to have faith that God is there to help us.
The story is very well plotted out and leaves readers wondering if Nova and her friends can survive. I think middle school aged and up would enjoy this book because it is about a group of kids around their age. The book is filled with subtle lessons and an adventure that tops the chart of intrigue and a world like no other. Will a war break out? Can Nova and her friends keep danger from their world? Grab a copy and join the adventure .
