The Keeper of Her Heart by Stacy Henrie (Review & #Giveaway)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

I loved this author's Of Love and War series (reviews here and here) that I read back in 2015. When I heard she was going to be releasing another war story, I couldn't wait to read it! I love how she finds settings and situations that I haven't read before with characters who are so easy to relate to. She did the same in The Keeper of Her Heart.

If you like the novels of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie’s inspirational romance set against the backdrop of World War One!

Even at a young age, Ada Thorne knew that she would marry only for love, never money. So when she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Ned Henley, the lowly gamekeeper on a neighboring estate, she defies her parents and society by eloping with him to London to build a new life.

Without her family’s support, life in the city is far more difficult than the one of ease and privilege Ada has always known. She’ll find herself relentlessly tested in ways she never imagined—especially when Ned, answering the call of duty, enlists to serve his country in World War One.

Alone and near poverty with a child to raise, Ada’s resolve will be strained at every turn. And as she struggles to remain true to her convictions and live life on her own terms, Ada will embark on a journey of courage, faith, and love that will surpass even her own humble dreams . . .

My Review

THE KEEPER OF HER HEART is a story of love, perseverance, friendship, and second chances. The characters are genuine and easy to relate to, while the story is touching. Fans of the genre will find much to love here!

I loved Ada and her bravery. First she leaves her privileged life, the only life she's known, for love. Then she forges on in doing things that she's never done before as she cleans, cooks, and works to support her family in a place she's never been and surrounded by strangers. She grieves and learns to move on through hardship and with her husband off to war. She faces her past and is brave enough to not let it change her. She also is brave enough to recognize a second chance. I also loved Ned. He's so sweet and I loved how he and Ada figure things out. He did feel slightly removed, or not as strong as a character as Ada at times, but that would be my only criticism of the story. I also loved some of the other characters, such as Ada's neighbor who becomes a dear friend, and another friend later in the story who really grew on me.

The story is so well balanced between romance, heartache, humor, some inspirational parts, and so many sweet moments. It definitely kept me reading. I loved so many parts, especially dealing with the various types of relationships: first love, mature love, friendship, and family. The ending was tender and joyous and I adored it!

In the end, was it what I wished for? I loved how the story pulled out my emotions. It was engaging, sweet, and inspiring. It's one I definitely recommend!
