A Surrendered Heart

Paperback: 384 pages

Christian Historical Fiction

My Review:

As the books opens, Cholera has struck in epidemic proportions, causing a panic among the citizens of Rochester.

Enter, Amanda Broadmoor, the daughter of one of the city’s most prominent families. Having aspirations of becoming a doctor, and over her parent’s objections, she begins to work for Dr. Blake Carstead in the Home for the Friendless. Although, she is a seemingly strong, healthy young woman, she becomes a victim of the dreaded disease.

However, cholera is not the only problem the Broadmoors will face. Hidden financial difficulties are also looming on the horizon. Deception, uncertainty, and division begin to take its toll on the family.

This is the first book I've read in the series, but I found it well-written, fast-paced, and passionate, all combining for a fascinating story. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

(Thank you to Bethany House for my review copy.)
