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?
My Thoughts on the Book
A Heart's Home is book six in Colleen Coble's Journey of the Heart series. Because this is book six, I had a bit of a hard time connecting to the story. I felt a little lost for most of the beginning and then a few times here and there throughout the book. I really think that if I had started with book one I would have enjoyed the book much more.
With that being said, I did enjoy this book anyways. It is a sweet, short story about love and faith during hard times. This book is only 100 pages long so it's a quick read, perfect for when you want a short story to read in between longer novels.
I think that I would probably enjoy this entire series and, as a matter of fact, I have already called a bookstore in town to see if they carry them (and they do!) so that I can start from the beginning. A Heart's Home is a book worth reading, although I would recommend starting with book one first.
