A Journey of the Heart (Book 4)
June 2015/112 pages/$6.99
Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.
When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered an awful truth: her deceased husband was a bigamist. And what’s more, the home she thought she inherited never belonged to her at all. Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers. But then she meets Isaac Liddle, a handsome soldier with a kind heart. When he begins to court her, Emmie wonders whether she could ever really be his—and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Colleen Coble continues her novella series with another endearing story. Although this is book four, it introduces a new character, Emmie, and brings her to Fort Laramie, Wyoming to join Sarah and the others from the earlier books. Emmie is the sister of Ben, who was so awful in the first three books, and it is refreshing to see that someone in that family was kind! I can't imagine dealing with the news she received, and it was even worse in the times in which she lived. As always, Coble's character development endears Emmie to the hearts of readers, and her combination of danger and romance makes this a book that's hard to put down. Easy to read in one sitting, A Heart's Betrayal is the perfect place to jump into this novella series, even if you haven't read the first three books, although don't blame me if you backtrack and read the first three as well!
