A Home for My Heart by Anne Mateer ~ Review

A Home for My HeartLucie's Review:

When the current matron of the orphanage leaves in order to get married, Sadie steps up to fill the position thinking that it will be a while before she and her long time beau tie the knot. But when Blaine comes up with the land, and house so that they can get married, Sadie has already committed to serving as matron, that does not allow for marriage.
Adding to her difficulties are the orphanage's need for money, with the threat of it being closed down.
Will Sadie be able to save the orphanage or her relationship with Blaine.

A Home for My Heart was a sweet story, with a Gift of the Magi spin to it. Filled with so many great characters, who drew me with their realness and humanity.

The story is told from Sadie's point of view throughout in first person perspective, through her struggles and triumphs. I loved the many side characters, Miranda was a very smart, wise woman. And Blaine always did his best to please.

Overall, this was a very good story, that in many ways was very different from your typical Christian Fiction Romance, because it told a story at what was very possibly the end of a relationship instead of the beginning. This was the kind of book that when I had finished it, I wasn't sure how much I liked, but the more I thought back on it the more I realized that I had really enjoyed it. Great novel!
