About The Book
Journey now to Niagara Falls, New York, of 1870 where…
She avoids danger at all costs. He makes his living by rushing headlong into it.
Outwardly, Adele Linley’s trip to visit her American cousins is nothing more than a summer vacation. In reality, she’s the daughter of an English aristocrat with barely a penny to her name seeking a rich American husband.
Having grown up in an overcrowded orphanage, Drew Dawson is determined to make a name for himself. He’ll take any honest job to provide for his sister—even crossing Niagara Falls by tightrope.
On a sightseeing trip to the Falls, Adele meets several eligible suitors. Incredibly wealthy and pompous, Franklin Conway takes an immediate fancy to her. But Adele would truly like to marry for love. When she encounters the mysterious Drew in the garden, Adele is confused by her feelings for someone who is everything she is NOT looking for. Will they both stay the course they have chosen for themselves?
Un-put-downable! Yes, yes, I did go there. How could I not? This book is just that! Very hard to put down! I loved Ms. Barratt’s captivating writing style and her historically rich plot line. I was up long into the night reading this novel and didn’t want it to end. I could feel myself following the characters’ journeys, seeing Niagra Falls come to life before me.
Getting to know Adele and Drew was refreshing. I loved their characters each equally. Drew’s character really reminded me of a tender hearted guy that I could fall hard for. The love he had for his sister was evident and really made for a swoonworthy man. Adele, bless her, I loved how I could “hear” her English accent when she spoke to Drew. I loved that, since my mom’s best friend is from England and I love to listen to her talk. Seeing Adele and Drew together…..well, I rooted for them until the end!
The journey that Adele takes isn’t an easy one. It’s a long, bumpy ride for sure. But, Ms. Barratt throws in the perfect amount of twists, and a whole lot of love and understanding from God and creates a wonderful, soul stealing story.
This is definitely a book I would recommend to all with a 4 star, two thumbs up, hats off praise! Ms. Barratt did a phenomenal job with her addition to the MY HEART BELONGS series, and I can’t wait to add more of her books to my shelves. She’s truly talented and definitely knows what to give readers who are looking for a “up all night, page turning, heart capturing” novel. Bravo, Ms. Barratt, bravo!
