A Heart Divided by Kathleen Morgan ~ review
Product Description from Amazon.com:
It is 1878 and the Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades. Still, Sarah Caldwell has misgivings when her father pressures her into distracting a ranch hand while he and her brothers rob the Wainwright place. When it becomes clear that hand is actually Cord Wainwright, Sarah realizes she needs to lay low. But Cord spots her in town and, with the sheriff away, makes a citizen's arrest, dragging her off to the Wainwright ranch until the sheriff's return. As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?
Against the beautiful and wild backdrop of the Rocky Mountains comes this sweeping saga of romance, betrayal, and forgiveness from beloved author Kathleen Morgan.
My take on this book:
This book is a historical christian romance fiction set during 1878 in the Colorado Rockies. Sarah Caldwell and Cord Wainright's have always been expected to carry on the feuding that has transpired between the two families for years, but when they start falling in love, will they ignore their feelings, and what will their families do?
The author easily drew me into this one, she quickly captured my imagination with her descriptive writing allowing me to visualize the story as it unfolded. You can easily feel the emotions of the two families involved, and I like that the author showed both sides of the feud.Sarah was a character that was very easy to relate to. At eighteen, she really is a pretty strong willed person, and while she really wants nothing to do with the feud her father persuades her for the sake of her brother.I really understood her loyalty to her family, even though she didn't agree with them. I really enjoyed watching the relationship blossom between Sarah and Cord. I felt like the secondary characters really added to this story, and I hope some of them get their own stories.
The eye catching cover will certainly draw your attention to this book but the great plot and interesting characters will keep you reading. If your a fan of historical inspirational fiction with a nice romance woven in then your going to enjoy "A Heart Divided" which is the first book in Kathleen Morgan's new series Heart Of The Rockies.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for an honest review.
