A Heart Divided: A Book Review

About The Book:

When fate brings them together, they must choose between family ties and love.

The Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades. Still, Sarah Caldwell has misgivings when her father pressures her into distracting a ranch hand while he and her brothers rob the Wainwright place. When it becomes clear that hand is actually Cord Wainwright, heir of the Wainwright holdings, Sarah realizes things have gone too far.

As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they just might be falling in love. Can they betray their families to see where this attraction leads? Or will their families betray them?

Against the beautiful and wild backdrop of the Rocky Mountains in 1878 comes this sweeping saga of romance, betrayal, and forgiveness from beloved author Kathleen Morgan.

My Review:

Once again, I have had the opportunity to read a fantastic historical fiction from Revell, as a reviewer for Graf-Martin Communication Inc. A Heart Divided is another great read and brings you back to the world of 1878. This is book one of the Heart of the Rockies Series, and just by reading this first book, I know the series is going to be a great one!

A Heart Divided follows two families through a decades long feud and, as the description above states, covers the theme of forgiveness throughout the book. With any good historical fiction, there is the ever-present romance story line, and I just love all the characters and how well developed they are. Sara and Cord were wonderful characters and I love that even within family feud, love conquers all. It will be interesting to see the directions that the author takes each character in future books of this series. A Heart Divided is also very well written and grabs you attention from the very first pages! You will be taken on a wonderful journey of the healing power that God has on not only individuals, but an entire family, when we allow Him to do His work. Amazing read!

A Heart Divided is the perfect book for any Christian Historical Fiction fan and would be a great summer reading book.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
