This story begins in Scotland, and it is vividly described and the reader is transported there and back in time to the late 1700s. Magnus and Lark have grown up here on the Isle of Kerrera; however now they are both adults and hold various roles. When they both get caught up in accusations following the death of Magnus' wife, life drastically changes as they are sold as indentured servants and are starting over a new life in the colony of Virginia.
Laura does a fantastic job with creating such vivid pictures of the hardships these characters faced. It was so easy to become lost in the story while reading and to really "see" the story in my mind. The historical details based upon her research really shines through as well and I love how real everything seems. "A Bound Heart" is a sweet story filled with hardships, loss, courage and hope; this is a must read for historical fiction fans!
