# A Place in His Heart # book review

Book Review: A Place in his Heart

Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Puritan Barnabas Horton is still in love with his deceased wife and needs only a mother for his two young sons. And yet these two very different people with very different expectations will take a leap of faith, wed, and then embark on a life-changing journey across the ocean to the Colonies. Along the way, each must learn to live in harmony, to wait on God, and to recognize true love where they least expect to find it.

This heartfelt tale of love and devotion is based on debut author Rebecca DeMarino’s own ancestors, who came to Long Island in the mid-1600s to establish a life–and a legacy–in the New World.

Wow, you would never believe that this was the author's debut novel. I started reading and some unknown hours later, I put the book back down. I couldn't seem to stop reading and even though there were tears in my eyes at the end, it was well worth one very late night. Historical fiction has found a new author and one that I hope doesn't stop with just this book. By the time I finished reading, I felt as if I had been there, that I was a part of this family through their joys and their sorrows. I came to care about each of the characters and it's a rare thing for a book to pull me in that deeply these days.
