When the Heart Heals Book Review


This is one of my last book reviews until the fall….I’m hoping some of my favorite authors do not have any new books coming out this spring and summer or else my resolve not to take any more book reviews may end up altering!

When the Heart Heals by Ann Shorey is the second book in the Sisters at Heart Series. I have to say I enjoyed this book much more than the first.

Rosemary, the main character struggles in overcoming the societal misunderstandings surrounding her employment as a war nurse. She is hired by a new doctor in town and can you guess how that ends?

I liked the bit of mystery included in this novel, as Rosemary gets harassed for using tinctures and poultices. Rosemary’s character exhibited a kind and caring spirit, as would be expected of a nurse.

She was strong and courageous in the face of opposition. However, forgiveness was her weak spot and this book shares her journey of learning to forgive those who have hurt her.

Available February 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
