About the Book: Emmie’s hope for a life with Isaac is overshadowed by a tragic loss at Fort Phil Kearny. Isaac Liddle is keen to marry Emmie, and she knows she shouldn’t hide her pregnancy from him any longer. But before she can tell him her secret, a widower friend asks the impossible of Emmie: Will she honor her promise to his dead wife by marrying him to care for the orphaned baby?
With the Sioux Wars threatening outside the fort, Emmie’s solemn vow threatens her happiness from within. Will she honor a promise sure to break her heart—and Isaac’s? Or is there another way to find a home for her heart?
What I Thought: A Heart's Home is Book Six in author Colleen Coble's Journey of the Heart series. This is the last book in the series, and was definitely my favorite one. These books are quick reads at around 100 pages each. I received one book each month to review, so I have spent six months with this series, and feel like I know the characters well.
In A Heart's Home, Emmie reveals her pregnancy, to Isaac, and he still wants to marry her. She has feelings for him, but does not show them to him. Emmie makes a promise to her friend that she never imagines she would have to fulfill. Tragedy occurs just as Emmie and Isaac come together, and Emmie is faced with an impossible decision-honor her promise or follow her heart?
I enjoyed A Heart's Home very much, and was sad that the series was over. I thought Colleen Coble did an excellent job wrapping up all the story lines in the book.
