A Place In His Heart

Rebecca DeMarino was born in Pensacola, Florida, the daughter of a Navy pilot. Her mother made a home for the family of six all over the map, including Virginia, Nevada, California, Washington, and Guam, before her parents put down anchor on a ranch in Oregon.
As the wife of a young Air Force officer, married life brought more travel. She relied on her mother’s example of how to make a home anywhere. Her three beautiful daughters were born in Florida, Alaska and Nebraska.
Retired after sixteen years with a major airline, she manages to fulfill her love of wanderlust with frequent family or research trips. 
Her debut novel A Place In His Heart is drawn from family lore regarding her great grandfather from generations ago.

Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Left at the altar and disgraced in her small hamlet, she is being pressured to marry the eligible son of the London milliner. Puritan Barnabas Horton still grieves the loss of his beloved wife, but he knows his two young sons need a mother. 
With tender hearts, Mary and Barnabas take a leap of faith and wed. But when Barnabas’s secret plans to move his family to the New World to escape persecution come to light, Mary’s world is upended. How could she possibly leave her Papa and her dear sister? 
And will she ever reach the secret places of her husband’s broken heart?   
My Thoughts:
A Place In His Heart is Rebecca DeMarino's debut novel and the first book of The Southold Chronicles. Drawing from her rich personal heritage, DeMarino has written a book that tells a story of tender love and loss.  The vivid description draws readers into the lives of the characters from the very beginning.  The way DeMarino weaves a spiritual message into the fabric of the story is fluent and fresh.
DeMarino has earned herself a place of significance in the historical romance genre.  She has hooked us with this book and gained fans for the remainder of the series.  I am honored to have discovered a new "favorite" author!
I was sent a complimentary copy of the book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Happy Reading,
