Jessica DuBois is not used to getting her hands dirty or her heart broken. When her mother remarries and takes Jessica with her to rugged Fort Bridger, Wyoming, Jessica longs for her Boston parties and the control she used to have over her life.
Then she meets Reverend Clay Cole, a man who seems only to have eyes for God and his adoring three-year-old cousin. Clay is not just immune to Jessica’s charms, he challenges her selfish attitude.
When tragedy brings this unlikely pair together, they must decide: Is love truly powerful enough to heal the soul?
Rich in historical detail, The Heart Answers takes us to 1867 Wyoming, where a misplaced socialite and an independent preacher ask the deepest questions of the heart.
I love historical fiction romances ~ they are one of my favorite genres to read and how I missed reading more of Ms. Coble's novels till now is beyond me!
The Heart Answers by Colleen Coble is book 3 in a 4 book series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone book. I have not (yet) read any of the other books in this series but I was able to follow this story with ease.
This well written novel is packed with drama, gentle romance, wit, drama, suspense, Faith, redemption and an ending that touched my heart. Well worth the reading!
Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishing and Netgalley for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
