If you’ve read my reviews over the years, you know I enjoy certain authors and read everything by them. Dawn Kinzer is one of those authors.
It’s natural to read one of her historicals and feel like you’re watching an episode of When Calls the Heart or Little House on the Prairie. She has a way of bringing hope and sweet charm to the pages. With a Trusting Heart is no exception.
What happens when a baby shows up at an orphanage in Seattle, Washington during the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition? Not an unusual occurrence, but the arrival sets new orphanage employee Lizzie Clark and farmer Jack Butler on a quest to find the mother, a woman they both know. Each has reason for wanting to reunite mother and son.
Lizzie is an independent woman with firm plans for her future, and they don’t include marriage. Unable to move past his mother’s abandonment, Jack sees marriage as asking for a woman to desert him. But a surprising announcement (based on a historical incident) leaves the baby’s future up for grabs and forces Lizzie and Jack to rethink their convictions.
With a Trusting Heart is the inspiring story of two people called upon to face their fears of love and loss for the sake of someone else. As an added bonus, the reader is reunited with Sarah and Peter from Sarah’s Smile.
I highly recommend reading this engaging novella.
