Eden Spencer has decided she was meant to live as a spinster since the man she loved and thought to marry left her. She vows never to lose her heart again and instead has poured herself in running the library and reading to the town's children. It seems to be working for her too, until a hulk of man shows up in the town of Spencer to apply for the much needed blacksmith position. Levi Grant comes to Spencer for a new start after being released from prison for killing a man accidentally. There is an immediate spark between them and she thinks she may have finally found a honorable man. But what will happen when she learns about Levi's less than honorable past?
Another great story from Karen Witemeyer. This is the second book I've read by this author and I really like her style of writing. To Win her Heart is filled with lots of great characters. Eden was someone you really liked. She was very sweet and sincere but had a judgmental side to her. I think Eden represents most of us pretty well. Probably more than we want to admit. Levi was a really great hero. Even though he had a very tainted past, you could really see how the Lord had changed his heart. But you also saw how he still struggled with temptation. I think that was so realistically represented. Most of us can relate to that aspect as well. I loved the interaction between our two main characters. You really felt their attraction. I also enjoyed Eden's father. He brought a smile to my face. And I can't forget to mention Ornery the dog. He will steal your heart right from the start. If you like historicals you won't want to miss this one. I would definitely recommend it. A thank you goes to Bethany House for providing this complimentary copy for my review.
I'm a mom of three boys and wife to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
