A Heart Most Certain Review

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.

A Heart Most Certain by Melissa Jagears is so so so good! I loved the growth both characters showed throughout the story. It was so realistic in its pacing and that made it so much more meaningful. There was no single moment where either character realized a flaw and instantly changed, it was a gradual growth and not easy. I feel like I grew with the characters on some level because I know I have held both Nicholas's view as well as Lydia's on certain matters. A Heart Most Certain is so much more than a well written historical romance, it make you reflect on your own actions towards others. If you have time for only one book the rest of the year choose this one, you will not be disappointed. 

5 out of 5. 

“If we claim to want them to know the love of Christ but don't give it, how will they believe?”

 I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
