What The Heart Holds by Kari Trumbo

Learning To Live Again

What The Heart Holds by Kari Trumbo is a delightful Christian historical romance set in 1899.

The novel is a light hearted, fun read sure to bring a smile to your face. The banter volleys backwards and forwards between the two lead characters – both maintain independence but with an air of vulnerability.

The past has a habit of intruding on the present and future if we let it. The past is gone. We need to learn lessons from it and move on.

Grief can trap us. The grieving feel a series of emotions including guilt. “Stop acting like you don’t deserve to live.” Our lives must move on.

If we lock up our hearts, we will never hurt again – No! If we lock up our hearts we merely imprison ourselves. We miss out on life. We must learn to live and love and trust again.

Kari Trumbo has drawn some wonderfully warm characters whose interaction with each other is a joy to behold.

Small town living really comes to life through descriptive passages. As I read on, the whole novel had a Walnut Grove (Little House On The Prairie) feel to it.

A perfectly charming novel to lose oneself in.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
