I recently read the book, Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr.
Set in the mid 1800’s in Pennsylvania, this is a story of two very different people in desperate situations, working together to solve both of their problems, albeit in quite an un- traditional way. Life has left few choices for Elvira Kilmer. Her hopes for marriage and a family have long since passed her by. She needs work. And Jackson Smith needs a housekeeper.
I enjoyed this book. It was a real feel-good story; a story about the beauty within. A bit predictable, but still entertaining and fun. Elvira’s character was sweet, and sad, and I felt my heart go out to her. As I’ve said before, I LOVE a book that is “appropriate”. I appreciated being able to read without worrying about foul language or sexual scenes. I’m giving this book 4 stars.
