Review of A Heart's Home by Colleen Coble
A Heart's Home (A Journey of the Heart #6)by Colleen Coble
This Christmas, a tragic loss at Fort Laramie ushers in hope and healing. When a young mother dies after giving birth at Fort Laramie, Emmie Croftner is shaken by the death of her dear friend--and reminded of the dangers of childbirth. She won't be able to hide her own pregnancy much longer. She's dreading the day that Isaac Liddle, the handsome soldier she adores, discovers her secret. Then the young infant's father offers a solution: Emmie should marry him so the child can have a family. With the Sioux Wars threatening soldier and civilian alike, a ready-made family could be the answer to Emmie's prayers for safety. But at what cost to her heart--and Isaac's?
This is the last book of the series of Journey of the Heart.
The books are very short in pages but strong in the content. I have enjoyed the journey however each book can be read as a stand alone book.
This book has a lot of emotions as well as the other ones. The beginning of the book has a death of a young mother in childbirth. Emmie had promised her friend she would marry her husband and raise the child. Emmie is in love with Isaac but has yet to tell him that her marriage was not a real marriage and a fake. Her "husband " is dead and she is carrying his child. Isaac knows she is going to have a baby but not the secret of the "husband". The promise to her friend has her questioning what to do.
The story begins December 18,1866 at Fort Phil, Kearny, Wyoming Territory.
The reader again sees the hardships of the Old West with the weather, Sioux uprisings and problems while living in this time era. There is also close friendships and hope.
The book is dedicated to: In memory of my brother Randy Rhoads, who taught me to love the mountains of Wyoming, and my grandparents Everett and Eileen Everroad, who loved me unconditionally. May you walk those heavenly mountains with joy.
I am giving it a 5 star rating because it was a good read and a Christian read. No bad language.
I hate to see the series end but look forward to other books by Colleen Coble.
