Review: The Keeper of Her Heart by Stacy Henrie

About the book:
If you like the novels of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie’s inspirational romance set against the backdrop of World War One!

Even at a young age, Ada Thorne knew that she would marry only for love, never money. So when she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Ned Henley, the lowly gamekeeper on a neighboring estate, she defies her parents and society by eloping with him to London to build a new life.

Without her family’s support, life in the city is far more difficult than the one of ease and privilege Ada has always known. She’ll find herself relentlessly tested in ways she never imagined—especially when Ned, answering the call of duty, enlists to serve his country in World War One.

Alone and near poverty with a child to raise, Ada’s resolve will be strained at every turn. And as she struggles to remain true to her convictions and live life on her own terms, Ada will embark on a journey of courage, faith, and love that will surpass even her own humble dreams . . .

My thoughts:

Stacy Henrie does it again! The Keeper of Her Heart was a phenomenal historical romance. It took me a few chapters to get completely into the story, but once I did I didn't want to put the book down.

The story had great characters and was emotional. It definitely kept me guessing and there were a couple scenes that had me on the edge of my seat.

I loved the setting and time period in which the book took place. I think if you are a fan of historical romances, and WWI books at that, you will enjoy The Keeper of Her Heart. I recommend it!

  1. I have a few of Stacie's books on my Kindle but have yet to get around to reading them. This review is motivating me to change that.

  2. Thanks for the lovely review! So glad you enjoyed the book!

  3. I haven't read too many WWI historical fiction novels so I will have to check this one out! It sounds like a good read. The cover is gorgeous too!
