HEART OF GOLD
The truest treasure is found deep in the heart.
Back in her beloved Virginia, Shannon Adair loved nursing injured soldiers back to health. But in Grand Coeur, Idaho-the rough-and-tumble place where her father has been called to lead the church-shes not sure where she fits in. Then a critically ill woman arrives, and Shannon knows her place at last: to care for this dear woman and ease her pain.
Matthew Dubois is the fastest and most reliable stagecoach driver on Wells Fargos payroll. But his widowed sister is dying and hes about to inherit his young nephew. So he takes a job at the Wells Fargo express office in Grand Coeur until he can find the one thing he needs to get back to driving: a wife to care for the boy.
What neither of them knows is that God is at work behind the scenes-and is lovingly bringing them together to discover the true desires of their hearts.
Another amazing read from Robin Lee Hatcher. There's something so satisfying about slipping back in time with this author as your guide! The historical details create an ambiance that always leaves me befuddled when I come up for air and find myself int he 21st century.
Inspiration threads the layers of this book together and I particularly enjoyed Shannons' father's private conversations with God. It's Shannon's transformation that really touched me though. She's a bit too prideful in the beginning and a whole lot of judgmental and I grew right along with her.
Matthew is the kind of Western hero dreams are made of -- even if he thinks he's the footloose and fancy free kind! I love how Hatcher changes his mind! Great all around read for any historical romance lover!
