A Heart's Home

A Heart’s Home, by Colleen Coble, is the final book in the Journey of the Heart six-book series. It takes place at Fort Phil Kearny, Wyoming Territory, 1866.

Ahh… That’s my clearest sentiment after finishing this series. A Heart’s Home is such a satisfying end to this stimulating series. With stirring aspects of mystery, suspense, heartbreak, and redemption, I couldn’t ask for more.

She felt like hugging herself. “I still can’t believe I’m going to be married.” ~ pg 1, A Heart’s Home

I really appreciate the setting and I’ve learned new facts about this place and time in history. (Which is one of the reasons I love historical fiction!) The cast of characters feels familiar and I’ll miss them terribly—especially Emmie, Isaac, and Sarah. Their growth is evident, and I find their faith, inner strength, and love inspiring.

The lump in Emmie’s throat threatened to choke her. She couldn’t lose Isaac, not when she’d just found him. ~ A Heart’s Home 
Colleen Coble has created an engaging, memorable series of books, and has a smooth narrative voice. The ‘mini’ story concept is somewhat unique and I love it! Each installment is easily read in a day, but there’s no shortage in content. I’ve read several other works by this author and have never been disappointed. From the settings to the character arcs, I love every aspect of her writing.
