Matters of the Heart by Heidi Gray McGill My Review


About the book 

She determines to champion the needs of others, no matter the fallout.

He’s determined to be his own man and make his own way.

Will stubbornness keep them from discovering God’s best?

Unconventional Katie empathizes with the widows and orphans of the Civil War who are searching for a place to call home in Shumard Oak Bend. But with no one to help her, she’ll need to do it secretly, a challenge she readily accepts. Katie’s taken charge before, and she’ll do it again, no matter whom she has to outwit to get the job done.

Hans vows to stop doing everyone else’s bidding. But he follows orders when a pair of emerald green eyes, blazing red hair, and freckles that dance on the bridge of a pert nose conscript him to duty. Be his own man. Who is he kidding? Skunks don’t change their stripes. They leave disasters in their wake wherever they go, just like him.

Overcoming personal obstacles and finding your true self doesn’t mean going it alone. Yet the answer isn’t always in the one you seek.

True Christian Fiction. Relatable Characters. Life-changing stories.

And I thought 

Historical Romance is not my 'Go To' choice for reading. 

I was offered a chance to read Matters of the Heart 

I am so glad I read this one and can say for several reasons this is the best book I have read this in year.  

I have to say it is also probably the best and we'll written Christian Romance I have ever read. 

Matters of the Heart is an excellent and well written love story.  But author Heidi Gray McGill also includes Christian values and principles that follow with the story. 

Each of the main characters are struggling with their own feelings and thoughts of God and how he is a part of their life and circumstances. 

I felt many emotions as I turned the pages. 

 There were times I giggled when Katie and Hans interacted.  There were times I laughed . . . when it was revealed later in the he book what the main dish was when Han's had just arrived.  

My heart was filled as I rode along

with Hans and the Reverand.  As an outsider peering into their conversations it was easy to see just what the Reverand be was 'up to'.  And how God had a plan for Hans. 

I loved my chance to begin this series and look forward to reading the previous books.  And the prequel offered on the authors website.  

I also found a blog post with the authors behind the scenes story of how she developed the main characters.  Click Here

Each book in the series is written as a standalone. 

Many thanks to author Heidi Gray McGill to allowing me the chance to read an advance copy.  

I will post a review on Amazon and Good Reads.
