Home Is Where the Heart Is
Meg Wolverton is a young Easterner who takes a job as a housekeeper for a rancher in rural Wyoming, 1873. Along the way, she's responsible for seeing orphaned children to their new parents. Three kids, Susie, Davey, and Jimmy don't get adopted, so when she arrives, her new boss, widower Sam Gallagher, realizes he has a ready made family and suggests they get married. Meg gets a crash course in being a housewife and mother on the frontier. Can this marriage of convenience complete with adopted children turn into a love match?
Home is Where the Heart Is is a heartwarming historical romance with a Christian message. Meg is readily reliant and has a strong relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, but after his wife and young daughter died, Sam has closed his heart to the Lord. However, Meg's warmth and love for the children and their developing relationship causes him to reconsider his anger towards God. The spiritual message is well done and not preachy. Faith in God is a part of the character's lives, not an editorial. Humorous and populated with interesting characters, along with a passionate relationship between the leads, this is a good Western historical romance novel.
