A Heart's Home ~ Colleen Coble ~ Litfuse Tour along with a giveaway
A Heart’s Home(Thomas Nelson, August 2015)
Emmie’s hope for a life with Isaac is overshadowed by a tragic loss at Fort Phil Kearny.
Isaac Liddle is keen to marry Emmie, and she knows she shouldn’t hide her pregnancy from him any longer. But before she can tell him her secret, a widower friend asks the impossible of Emmie: Will she honor her promise to his dead wife by marrying him to care for the orphaned baby?
With the Sioux Wars threatening outside the fort, Emmie’s solemn vow threatens her happiness from within. Will she honor a promise sure to break her heart—and Isaac’s? Or is there another way to find a home for her heart?
A Heart's Home wraps up The Journey of the Heart series with a few twists and but an overall ending that was expected, yet satisfying. While this story revolves around Emmie Croftner and Isaac Liddle, and whether Emmie will ever share her secrets, and perhaps find the happiness she longs for but also fears.
I have went back and forth with The Journey of the Heart series. While I like the historical aspects of the story and actually found myself drawn into the series with the first few books, my attention span has started to drift, but when I picked up this book I was anxious to finally see how the characters would end up. I have enjoyed following the characters and connecting to their lives. The setting was also interesting, Ms. Coble brings the time period to life, with the danger of day to day living. I think my major problem was being impatient about waiting for the next installment. I will say that I enjoyed the first few books so much that looked up the original books which this series was taken from which was called Wyoming Series and read all of them The Journey of the Heart series seems much more polished than the original books. . Overall, I have enjoyed each book in this series, and think that anyone who enjoys historical fiction with an inspirational thread really should check it out.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
