A Place in His Heart Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino

Book Description:
Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton still grieves the loss of his beloved wife, but he knows his two young sons need a mother. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the Colonies. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.

This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino's own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life--and a legacy--in the New World.

My Opinion:
Different than I expected!  A Place in His Heart is a journey that takes place in the span of several years.  Rebecca takes you from an English Hallow to the New World with stops in between the destinations.  I found the overall story written well and intriguing if not a bit frustrating at times! LOL!  Barnabas really frustrated me at times actually.  Through hardships and pain God sees them through it all and the spiritual lessons expressed are great!  From leaning to rely on God and His timing instead of just jumping, head first into things; to learning that God miracles pop up even when we fail to see them.  I do wish the story went on a little more instead of stopping where it does, but there were things in the end that really made me smile!  The journey is long and the changes these two go through are many, and when Barnabas has already lost so much can he risk loving again!?  Overall I LOVED the historical things I learned as well as how people lived and survived in this time.  I think this is a nice read, that is well written, with GREAT Spiritual messages, and I really enjoyed reading it! 

Songs: "How Great Is Our God" by Kimberly and Alberto Rivera, "He Leadeth Me" by The Cluster Pluckers, and "It Is Well With My Soul" performed by Chris Rice
