A Heart Divided...Review

About the book:
It is 1878 and 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, Sarah realizes she needs to lay low. But Cord spots her in town and, with the sheriff away, makes a citizen's arrest, dragging her off to the Wainwright ranch until the sheriff's return. As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?

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

A fun read with a Hatfield and McCoy type feud. Cord and Sarah are terrific characters and I loved Nick. Danny was adorable and the villains appropriately villainous and unexpected. This is an entertaining and compelling story and one I enjoyed.

This seems to be the first in a series and introduces many characters who could potentially play a part in future books. At times I felt like I was missing past history, but hopefully many of these characters and their histories will be fleshed out in future books.

The Christian elements are well balanced between light and preachy. The romance elements and chemistry are a bit stronger than you might find in Christian historical novels, but here it was refreshing. 

Available May 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Donna Hausler from Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Kathleen Morgan here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
