Hello everyone! Okay, so I’ve been horrible at posting. Again. Honestly, it’s partly to do with the fact that I haven’t gotten a lot read lately. That and I’m getting published. (How awesome is that?!) So, a lot of my free time as gone to working on my own story. That being said, I have read some pretty awesome stories lately, and I’m going to attempt to do posts once a week, probably on Mondays. So, without further ado, how about today’s review?
Today is Karen Witemeyer’s newest novel, Heart on the Line.
What an incredible story! Karen Witemeyer is an amazing author, and this newest novel doesn’t disappoint. While I’m not usually a fan of Western stories, hers always leave me wanting more. Once again we travel to the all women’s colony, plus two gentlemen now, of Harper‘s Station. This story follows Grace, the Telegraph operator. She’s a fun character to get to know. After having seen her own father shot before her, she is in hiding, trying to make a living while looking over her shoulder. She’s strong, almost fearless, and has no problem carrying a gun on her at all times. Plus, she has a quick wit and deep intelligence that happens to be brought out by her nightly correspondent Telegraph Operator, Amos. While not the traditional handsome beaux, he shows his qualities in his respect for her, quick wit to match hers ,and an intelligence to see through difficult situations. He has a good heart, and while he doesn’t usually seek out of fight, he has no problem dashing into danger to protect those he loves. When danger comes knocking on their door, they will you have to use all their strength, intelligence, and a little bit of help from some friends. And perhaps even in the midst of trouble, they might find that their friendship could become so much more. These two were so fun to watch fall for each other. They have such an equal intelligence and wit with a mutual respect and a bit of a teasing side on both ends. It is both heart melting and heart pounding. I was both laughing, gasping, and sighing. It is a wonderful book with a fun setting a great plot, some precious characters and great messages about learning to trust God when your strength is not enough. It is a story I highly recommend to anyone wanting a good page-turner!
