Although set in the 1800's, A Heart Most Certain tackles some very relevant topics. Hypocrisy, human trafficking, poverty and the roll of the church in the community are all discussed in this book. I found it very convicting and beautifully told.
The main characters are well developed and have good chemistry. They are both a little uptight in the beginning, but they grew on me quickly as I got to know them. They both had underlying motives that pulled them apart in the beginning, so there were lots of misunderstandings along the way.
This is a fairly long book, and the subject matter is a bit heavy in places. I wouldn't recommend it if you are in the mood for something light. But if you are in the mood for something that goes deeper, this is a great book.
I received this book for free from the publisher for the purpose of review.
