Book Review - "A Heart Divided"
I have just read "A Heart Divided," book 1 on Kathleen Morgan's Heart of the Rockies series and I am eagerly waiting for book 2!!! This is the first book of Kathleen Morgan's that I have read and I am going to for sure read the other books that she has written! I was drawn right into the story in the first paragraph, becoming totally captivated and just want to keep reading until I got to the end of the last sentence.
Living in the Colorado Rockies in the late 1800's, Sarah Caldwell is the loyal daughter and sister to her father and her brothers, even when she does not approve of their actions. The Caldwell family has been feuding with the Wainwrights for years, but suddenly Sarah finds herself in the midst of this as she is taken hostage by a Wainwright son, Cord, when he recognizes her as the beautiful girl who distracted him while his home was robbed. Cord Wainwright tried to escape his father's criticism and life all together, but has returned to help out physically and financially on the ranch. Cord realizes that Sarah is not to blame for her father's actions as she cannot control her father anymore than he can try to control his. Cord and Sarah try fighting the growing attraction and love between them, but it seems that love is stronger than the hate between their families.
The characters are wonderful in this book! They are well-developed and you will be drawn into their lives. Morgan's style of writing is easy and enjoyable to read. I am hoping to read more about the characters in this book, not only more about Cord and Sarah, but also Nick, Noah and Danny as well.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romance fiction!
