Publisher's Summary

Will the truth set her free...or keep her forever a prisoner of the past?

When Charity ran away with the Romany Gypsies, she left everything behind: her name, a way of life constrained by English rules, the punishments her cruel father meted out in the name of God, and the young man who made it all bearable. Certain things she can’t hide, even in wild, remote Wale: a secret longing for the ease of English life, the wisps of faith that still linger, and her reaction to a handsome face she thought she’d never see again.

Daniel Hayward would recognize that voice anywhere and that unruly, copper-colored hair, as well as those piercing blue eyes. But what is Charity Weston doing wearing Gypsy garb in Wales...when she died years ago?

For a moment, the grief that never quite left him is transformed into joy. But the walls between them now are built from bricks of culture clashes, bitter memories, and fear. To find his way, Daniel will have to trust as never before that God will guide their hearts home at last.

Does he love the girl she was...or the woman she has become? 

This poignant Regency Inspirational romance will fill your heart with love and hope.

Seeking Charity by Josie Riviera

Such sweet and lovely read or listen. This is the first time I've ever read something with gypsies and it was really enjoyable. I love that this book gave me a glimpse of gypsy life and the recipe at the end of the book is definitely on my menu list!

The narration by Tessa Peterson was also really good. :) I look forward to hearing more of her narration.

Story of the past catching up with the present.

Seeking Charity by Josie Riviera Sweet and I enjoyed story line very much. I have received the audible complementary to enjoy and this review is my honest thoughts on Seeking Charity book. Seeking Charity is a story of a young lady who decides to runaway from her dreary trouble home life at the age of 14 years of age determine to never return home or to the English customs again. Charity joins a Gypsy tribe and during the 6 years is recognized as Romany Gypsy like all the others in the tribe and no longer consider an outsider/English. But one day Charity past catches up with her when she is in Wale’s and her paths crosses with Daniel Hayward, the fellow English boy who was four years older that she spent her days with riding and talking that made her days brighter and life a little bit tolerable, and Daniel thought she died 6 long years ago. Charity is apprehensive of Daniel motives when their path cross and both must navigate the culture differences between Charity Gypsy life and Daniel’s English customs that Charity so desperately ran away from 6 years earlier. Can Charity and Daniel navigate to culture difference and make up the missed time or is Charity forced to go back to the English ways she determines never to go back to or stay with her Gypsy tribe and reject Daniel to potentially miss out seeing if Daniel is her soulmate? I recommend this sweet story to find out.

Great Read

Seeking Charity (Seeking #2) was a good read by Josie Riviera. Charity ran away with the Romany Gypsies and left everything behind. Although she ran away, she secretly longs for the ease of English life. Daniel Hayward recognized Charity’s voice immediately. But he never though he would see her again since she died years ago. I enjoyed reading this book an cant wait to read more by the author.

This is a delightful Historical Romance novella

Charity’s mother died at her birth. Raised by a very stern father, her temporary escape each day was riding horses. Which made most delightful was Rodin with her best friend, four years her elder. Unfortunately, life happens and one grows up often taking one. In various directions.
This is a well written Christian tale about survival, judgement, acceptance, unity, cultural differences, love and caring .
The narrator, Tressa Petersen did an outstanding job in narration and in her performance.
Josie Riviera created a wonderful story. The characters were mostly endearing and the scenes were described in a way they were easily visualized and the reader/listener could feel he/she was there .
I felt the ending was too abrupt. It also slightly lacked “depth. However, it was very worthwhile listening and inspiring.

Happily ever after

A novella with a twist! Most love is found in a ballroom but not so for Daniel and Charity. A quick read with a happily ever after.
The reader did a great job keeping the story alive with her reading talents!
