A Heart Most Certain by Melissa Jagears

A Fresh Voice in Historical Romance!
While Lydia King's reasons for joining the Teaville Moral Society might be suspect to some members, her heart is in the right place. Because of her father's debts and her mother's persistent illness, her best chance at a secure future and curing her mother is to impress the politician courting her. Her first task--to ask the town's wealthiest man to donate--seems simple enough . . . until he refuses.

Despite appearances, Nicholas Lowe wants to help others, but prefers to keep his charity private. When Lydia proves persistent, they agree to a bargain, but Nicholas still intends to do things his own way. Neither predicts what they'll learn about true charity or foresee the complications their actions will bring to the town, forcing Lydia to decide where her beliefs and heart truly align.

About the Author

Here are my thoughts.....
I'm struggling with where to begin with this book. I loved it so much I almost don't have the words. The spiritual depth of this book is incredible. I've never read a fiction book that makes me want to be better as a person and as a Christian. Now I don't want you to think that this book is preachy. It is just the way that Melissa brings out the way people who are Christians should act toward other people totally stirred up some major emotions in my heart.  I was completely taken by this book from page 1. I really enjoyed the characters in this book. Except for the Littles, them I didn't care for. But to be fair I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to. This book is not overly romantic which I liked as well. The romance is there for sure but it's a perfect amount of realistic love not mushy gushy fake stuff.
I am so hoping this book is just the beginning of a series because I saw several characters who I want to know about.  The only real negative for me was the book was a tad bit long. At almost 400 pages, I think it could have been cut down a little and still been just as fabulous. I have fallen in love with Melissa's books and I would recommend them to anyone.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. A positive review was not required.
