Book Review: The Heart's Charge


From the Back:

For Years They've Been Nomads for Justice, but a Final Mission May Just Lead Their Hearts Home.

Members of the legendary Hanger's Horsemen, Mark Wallace and Jonah Brooks arrive in Llano County, Texas, to deliver a steed, never expecting they'd help deliver a baby as well. Left with an infant to care for, they head to a nearby foundling home, where Mark encounters the woman he nearly married a decade ago.

After failing at love, Katherine Palmer has dedicated her life to caring for children, teaming up with Eliza Southerland to start Harmony House. Eliza understands the pain of not fitting society's mold, being illegitimate and of mixed ancestry. Yet those are the very attributes that lead her to minister to outcast children. The taciturn Jonah intrigues her by defying all her stereotypes of men, but there are secrets behind his eyes--ghosts from wars past and others still being waged.

When the Horsemen hear rumors of missing children, they stay to investigate, sticking close to Harmony House and its beautiful owners. As they work together to uncover the truth, love and danger grow hand in hand until a final sinister scheme threatens to destroy them all.

My Reflections:

I adore Karen Witemeyer's ability to take a novel and turn a story into a masterpiece!
From start to finish I was captivated. 

In this fast-paced novel, there are mini-stories within the main plot. I loved all the characters from big to small, the children at Harmony House were so charming, they each have their story to tell. Mark and Jonah, they made me laugh out loud at their bumbling ways and inner thoughts. That
is what I enjoyed about this story you get inside the character's heads and really understand their perspective.

Katherine's dedication to the children at Harmony House and her tender heart make her truly a remarkable yet fragile character. Eliza was another story she was not going to let any man hurt anyone she loved especially her...until she started to get soft with Jonah that is. 

Kindness, love, and a smidgen of suspense make this a well-rounded read. If you are looking for the perfect summer read I would highly recommend "The Heart's Charge"
