Publisher's Summary

2017 Selah Awards Winner for Historical Romance

In 1770, Heather Douglas is desperate to escape a brewing scandal in her native Scotland. Penniless and hoping for a fresh start far away, she signs a seven-year indenture and boards a British merchant vessel headed to Virginia.

Widowed planter Matthew Stewart needs someone to help raise his two young children. The tall blond standing on the Alexandria quay doesn't look like much after her harrowing sea voyage, but there's a refinement about her that her filthy clothing cannot hide. Could God be leading him to take this unknown indentured servant as his wife? 

When Matthew purchases Heather's indenture, marries her, and takes her to his farm, she is faced with new and constant challenges. And Matthew wonders if they can ever bridge their differences and make a life together. 

But in the Virginia countryside, Heather begins her greatest journey, one of self-discovery and of maturing faith. Here, she discovers that her emotional and spiritual scars bind her far more than her indenture...and love will finally set her heart free.

Draws you in from the first few minutes.

This book drew me in, leaving me wanting to keep listening to find out the mystery behind why Heather had to leave her home in such a drastic way. This was a very clean book, set in 1770, with religious notes throughout it. I found it very refreshing. There is a sweet love story. Cecily White, did a great job reading this book. My own thoughts started to have an Scottish accent, after listening to this book for a while. I received this book for free, through Audiobook Boom, in exchange for my honest opinion.

.Historical romance.

This is the first book I've read from this author. It was a pleasure to listen to and I would recommend it to anyone who prefers to read Christian related books but also for anyone as it is a historical romance novel as well. The story is well written and all of the narration was great - except the voice for Heathar, which was jarring compared to the rest of the narration - but that did not change my recommendation. This book was easy to listen to and it kept my attention so that I 'read' it in one day.

A new author [ to me]

I really enjoyed listening to this book. A young lady running away from a life changing mistake, indentures herself to begin a new life in a new country. I think it was well written and performed.

I would highly recommend this book. it was a wonderful read. there were a lot of wonderful lessons taught, and even some laugh out loud moments. The narration was also excellent. What else can I say? All in all, a beautiful sweet story that was very satisfying, yet had a lot of deeper meaning.

A Heart Set Free

A Heart Set Free is a nice story about one woman's journey toward God and acceptance of herself set to the backdrop of slowly falling in love. Narration was pretty good and the story is well written. I was given a free copy of this book and am leaving this honest review voluntarily.
