To Capture Her Heart~Rebecca DeMarino~

To Capture Her Heart (The Southold Chronicles, #2)

~Synopsis~

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montauk tribe, is enjoying her wedding feast when her groom is killed and she is kidnapped by a rival tribe and held for ransom. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is nonetheless left to die in a Connecticut forest–until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her long friendship with family friend Benjamin Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice–stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

  ~My Review~

When I first saw the cover of this book I was amazed and I wanted to read the story right away. The book cover looks so amazing. Also after reading the book,”Courting Morrow Little” I’m always willing to read books that are similar.

The beginning of the book had a very intriguing first chapter. That’s something I always look for in any book that I read.

It was very enjoyable to read about the different customs with the Indian tribe that Heather Flower,the heroine,was from.

For some reason I really couldn’t connect with the hero in this novel. I also felt that some of the situations in this novel was a bit repetitive and as far as characters goes I couldn’t really enjoy them because they felt one-dimensional. I think that the novel and the characters needed more life. Period. I also had a problem figuring out if this was a romance or just a historical fiction read because I really wanted to feel and see more of the romance between the two characters.

Overall, this was a pretty alright read but I just expected more to this novel. Not only do I want to be amazed by the book cover but I expect the novel and the whole cast of characters to be spectacular as well. (3 stars)

The Midwife’s Tale~Delia Parr~

The Midwife's Tale (At Home in Trinity #1)

~Synopsis~

Martha Cade comes from a long line of midwives who have served the families of Trinity, Pennsylvania, for generations. A widow with two grown children, she’s hopeful that her daughter will follow in her footsteps. But when Victoria runs off, Martha’s world is shattered.

Worse, a new doctor has arrived in town, threatening her job, and she can’t remember a time when her faith was more tested. Still determined to do the work she knows God intended for her, Martha is unprepared for all that waits ahead. Whether it’s trying to stop a town scandal, mending broken relationships, or feeling the first whispers of an unexpected romance, she faces every trial and every opportunity with hope and faith.

~My Review~

I have never read a book by this author so naturally I was excited to read a book by a new author to me. While reading this novel I was kinda disappointed that the heroine was older than what I was used to. I guess I am used to reading  books that have the hero and the heroine in their 20 somethings or whatever. I must admit that it took a long time to even warm up to the story.

To be honest, I really like my books to be full of dialogue between the different characters. I really don’t like when novels have more descriptions or are more wordy than anything because then I just lose interest.
That being said,this book wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It did have a pretty good beginning but the rest of the novel just didn’t have “it” for me because I thought the book needed to be more adventurous and it didn’t have as much dialogue as I would have liked.

Overall, I wasn’t overly impressed by this novel. I may still read the rest of the series but right now I really don’t know yet.

Special Sundays!~Philippians 4:11~

"Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties." C.S. Lewis

…..for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.-Philippians 4:11

*I like the quote above because it reminds me that whatever situation we go through God is there and with God we can have endurance through even the hardest situation. We can have peace in the storm because God is the creator of the storm.*

Have a blessed Sunday and week everyone!
