Book Review - A Heart's Home


Isaac Liddle is keen to marry Emmie, and she knows she shouldn’t hide her pregnancy from him any longer. But before she can tell him her secret, a widower friend asks the impossible of Emmie: Will she honor her promise to his dead wife by marrying him to care for the orphaned baby?
With the Sioux Wars threatening outside the fort, Emmie’s solemn vow threatens her happiness from within. Will she honor a promise sure to break her heart—and Isaac’s? Or is there another way to find a home for her heart?

This is the sixth and final book of the "Journey of the Heart" series. While this book can stand alone as a lovely little short story, you really do need to read the five previous books to understand who all the characters are and their background story.

Emmie is very excited about her upcoming marriage to the man she loves, Isaac. She had been married before to a man who deceived her and, after his death, all these deceptions come to light. This is why she is at the Fort in Wyoming with her friends Sarah and Amelia. She needed to get away from her town where the gossip about her was running rampant. 

Amelia has just had her baby when the story opens and Sarah and Emmie are pregnant with theirs. In book five, Emmie has promised Amelia that if anything happens to her while she is in child birth, that she will marry her husband, Jake. She made this promise long before she fell in love with Isaac and promised to marry him. When Amelia falls ill and then passes away, Emmie realizes that she must honor her promise and Jake is going to hold her to it for the sake of his child.

The Indian up-rises get worse and worse with the loss of many men at the Fort and it leaves everyone unsettled. They realize they must get reinforcements and Isaac volunteers, as well as a mountain man, to get to Fort Laramie to ask for help. Isaac gets lost in the blizzard and he is feared dead. 

This was a satisfying book to the ending of this series of books. It's a very quick read and it will hold your attention to the end. I enjoyed it immensely. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
