Within My Heart: Book Review

About The Book:


Sometimes the greatest step of faith is taken neck-deep in fear.

Determined to fulfill her late husband's dream, Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat with the help of her two young sons. But some days it feels as though her every effort is sabotaged. When faced with a loss she cannot afford, she's forced to trust Rand Brookston, the one man in Timber Ridge she wishes to avoid. And with good reason. He's a physician, just like her father, which tells her everything she needs to know about him. Or so she thinks....
 
Dr. Rand Brookston ventured west with the dream of bringing modern medicine to the wilds of the Colorado Rockies, but the townspeople have been slow to trust him. Just as slow in coming is Rand's dream to build the town a proper clinic. When a patient's life is threatened, Rand makes a choice—one that sends ripples through the town of Timber Ridge. And through Rachel Boyd's stubborn heart.
 
From the beloved, bestselling author of From a Distance and Beyond This Moment comes an unforgettable story about faith in the face of fear, about tarnished hopes and second chances, and ultimately about the resilient courage and tenacity of hearts broken——and mended——by love.

My Review:

With beautiful descriptions, well-developed characters and a fantastic story line, you will be brought back to a time reminiscent of Dr. Quinn or Little House On The Prairie as you read Within My Heart! I absolutely loved this book and it reminded me of why I have begun to love historical Christian fiction once again!

This book is a fantastic reminder that fear only holds us down, that we need to step out in our faith in God and  live our lives according to His will, regardless of what our plans are! Very easy to read, and although the third book in a series, it easily works as a stand alone title (you will not get "lost" for not reading the other books). I will definitely be reading more of Tamera Alexander's books for sure.

If you have a fan of Christian Historical Fiction on your Christmas shopping list, I highly recommend this book! I give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander online here, directly from Bethany House - it is also available through your local Christian bookseller.
