The Heart's Journey by Barbara Cameron (Review & Giveaway)

Naomi knows she should be excited about her upcoming wedding but she remains unmoved. Not only are her feelings for her fiance lackluster but she believes he may see her more as a servant than a partner. And he's so controlling. Is it too late to back out of the marriage? 

While praying for God's guidance, Naomi takes a break from her duties as a quilter and travels with her grandmother to Pinecraft, Florida. Along the way Naomi finds herself becoming attracted to Nick, their "Englisch" driver and friend, and the two begin to fall in love. The journey soon becomes one in which Naomi explores her most secret dream for love. But can she veer off the "safe" path she'd envisioned for her life to marry Nick?



I GIVE THIS BOOK: 4 1/2 Stars

MY THOUGHTS:
The Heart's Journey is the second book in the Stitches in Time series. I read Her Restless Heart, book one, earlier this year and have to say that I enjoyed The Heart's Journey so much more than that one. I'm not quite sure if the reason was that I felt that Naomi was a more relatable character or if I liked the whole plot better, but whatever the reason I was really delighted with it.

I think The Heart's Journey could easily be read as stand alone, as each book in the series focuses more on a different cousin, and unlike other series I don't think much would be spoiled if you did this. Obviously you would know who ended up with whom, if anyone, but besides that I think it's pretty spoiler-free.

I am looking forward to reading the third book, Heart in Hand, when it comes out next year. If you are a fan of Amish fiction, I think you will love this novel.

  4. I'm most excited that I don't have to be running back and forth to the hospital. I had a summer full of that and am really counting my blessings this Christmas that my husband is doing better and is still with us.
