Do They Have a Fighting Chance at Love?

After completing his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father’s knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past.

Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs in the town her father founded. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she’s reluctant to trust him. Yet as the mysteries of the town’s new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart.

Eden believes she’s finally found a man of honor and integrity. But when the truth about Levi’s prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian’s affections?

Sometimes reading Christian Historical Fiction a reader may not know what to find. It can be many different things. One is a story with characters of moral value but no real mention of Christianity, two is a story that is so preachy that it often scares people away, third is a story that has Biblical scripture woven through the pages. The story, scripture included challenges the reader to both read more scripture on their own as well as breathes the love of God into their life. That is the type of Christian Historical Fiction one finds in “To Win Her Heart”. Of course there are stories that fit in partial parts of these categories, but my descriptions help explain my point. Karen’s writing gets into your heart bringing forth characters that are completely unique and jump from the page.
