Review: Faithful Heart

Faithful Heart (Angel of Mercy Series)

About the Book: (from Amazon)  Dottie Harper fears for her children's safety. Her husband, Jerrod, is struggling with dementia brought on by shell shock during the Civil War. It's as though there are two Jerrods locked inside him: the tender and loving Christian man she married, and a harsh man given to unpredictable fits of violent rage. Dottie loves her husband with all her heart, and with God's help, she'd determined to remain steadfast. 

Dottie's sister, Breanna Baylor, is a certified medical nurse. She's headed west with a wagon train, planning to visit Dottie in California and meet her family for the first time. Along the way, Breanna meets up with wounded soldiers, contagious townspeople, and injured outlaws. Compassionate and highly skilled, she tends to their physical hurts and shares the gospel whenever she can. Litlle does she know that a life-or-death meeting awaits with her own brother-in-law.

Come alongside these two remarkable sisters, and rejoice in how God takes care of those with faithful hearts.

My Review:  This book had a basically good storyline and characters with real potential.  However,  it is one of those Christian romances that mentions prayer, God, Jesus, or salvation on almost every page.  It got to be too much for me.  DNF p 82  Grade D (If you like really religious romances, this is probably not a bad book for you).

Thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah for sending me a review copy of this book.  You can see their product page here.
