To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer
Ah, another historical romance! I’m not so much usually a reader of romances, but this book was very enjoyable. It’s the story of a man living out a second chance. He has been released from prison, where he came to a personal relationship with Christ. Now he is trying to begin again, hoping his past life won’t “ruin” his new life. Of course there’s a woman—the “spinster” librarian—I don’t want to give too many details and spoil it for anyone. . .so I’ll leave my summary at that! The book focuses on the entire story, not just the “romance.”
So, having stated at the beginning that I’m not much of a “romance” reader, I really did enjoy this book! It was a quick, easy, kind of “fluffy” read that is great for entertainment. It does not have objectionable material in it (thank you to the author and Bethany House for that!) and it has a wonderfully happy ending, which is what I like in my fiction! It’s not loaded with historical details, just set in an old-fashioned setting. There is more to the story than just the man-pursuing-woman theme—several different sub-plots are played out as well. It did make me tear up a few times It’s just a sweet romance—It would make a great vacation read!
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
