Book Review - "When the Heart Heals"

Ann Shorey's book 2 of her Sisters at Heart series, "When the Heart Heals," is such a great addition to the series and tells Rosemary's continued struggle to fit in and ultimately find her happily ever after.
Rosemary is happy living on her own, growing her herbs, and spending time with her brother and sister-in- law, Curt and Faith.  Rosemary is still struggling to be accepted in the town and wants to prove that it is acceptable for women to be nurses.  When Rosemary is hired by the new doctor, Elijah, to be his nurse, Rosemary is thrilled for the opportunity to do what she loves and be able to support herself at the same time.  However, when the threats that Rosemary receives become more and more dangerous, she is forced to make some changes in her life. As Rosemary and Elijah's relationship becomes personal as well as professional, Rosemary must follow her head and her heart, but will she have the courage to listen, face adversity and take some chances?

This is such a wonderful series so far and I am looking forward to book 3, guessing it may be Cassie's story as she has played a role in both of the first two books and has not found her "happily ever after" yet.  There are so many stories going on at once in this book and I fell in love with the returning characters once again and with new ones, including Jolene and Galen as well as Rosemary and Curt's parents.  This is an excellent story of healing and love!

  1. Hi Kristie! Thank you so much for reviewing When the Heart Heals. I'm so glad you liked the story!
    (You're right, Cassie will be the main character in Book 3. Stay tuned.)

    1. Hi Ann!

      Oh I am looking forward to book 3! Cassie has been a great character in the other 2 books - vague enough that I have been wanting more details about her life, but also she has played a big enough role that I am excited for her to find her "happily ever after" as well!
