Choices of the Heart by Laurie Alice Eakes
The Midwives: Book Three
Revell / 2013
About the book:
She thought she had left her old life behind . . .
Yet could it be that her past holds the key to reconciliation--and love?
In this gripping story of trust, deception, and bittersweet loss, you'll discover the true meaning of choices of the heart.
Choices of the Heart is the third book in Laurie Alice Eakes' The Midwives series and a good read. I was a little confused about who everyone was and what was going on in the beginning of this book, and I think part of that was due to the fact that I only read book two of this series, Heart's Safe Passage, prior to Choice of the Heart. While I did still enjoy the book a lot, I wish I had read A Lady in the Mist - mainly because it is Esther's parents' story.
The characters were good and I have to say, for a while I didn't have any idea who (if anyone) Esther would end up with. There'd be a scene with Zach and I'd be "Oh, she'll definitely end up with him!", but then Griff would come into the picture and I'd think "It'll be him!". It went back and forth for awhile. ;)
The feuding that went on between the families added some tension to Choices of the Heart and even a little mystery when certain things happened.
I really liked the message of forgiveness in Choices of the Heart. There were a few sad moments in the book, but also some joyous ones. All in all, a good book that I recommend if you enjoy historical romances. I think you probably will want to read books one and two first, though, because otherwise things might be a little confusing. I look forward to reading more of Laurie Alice Eakes' books in the future.
