A Place In His Heart Revell Book Review


Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton is still in love with his deceased wife and needs only a mother for his two young sons. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the Colonies. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.

This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino's own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life--and a legacy--in the New World.

My Review

The thing I love about this book is that it is based upon Rebecca DeMarino's ancestors. I love ancestry history and would love to be able to track my relatives back that far! I enjoy the setting of this book, while 1600s are not my favorite time period I still enjoy the history. Mary and Barnabas meet each other and form an unlikely union and get married. Their romance is a nice addition to the story but I was interested more in their trip to the New World. While the middle part of the book was a bit slow for me it picked up in the end and was a more enjoyable read.

I rate 4 stars.
