:A Fresh Voice in Historical Romance!

While Lydia King's reasons for joining the Teaville Moral Society might be suspect to some members, her heart is in the right place. Because of her father's debts and her mother's nagging illness, her best chance at a secure future--and curing her mother--is to impress the politician courting her. Her first task to ask the town's wealthiest man to donate seems simple enough ... until he refuses.

Despite appearances, Nicholas Lowe wants to help others, but prefers to keep his charity private. When Lydia proves persistent, they agree to a bargain, but Nicholas still intends to do things his own way. Neither predicts what they'll learn about true charity or foresee the complications their actions will bring to the town, forcing Lydia to decide where her beliefs and heart truly align.

Impressive
5 stars By Iola, Aug 22 2016
A Heart Most Certain shows Melissa Jagears to be a fresh voice in historical romance (even if the title does sound more Siri Mitchell). Everything about A Heart Most Certain impressed me.

The writing was excellent, there was a clear and challenging Christian message, the plot was solid with plenty of twists and turns, and just enough predictability (hey, this is romance! There are some aspects we want to be predictable). And both lead characters were excellent-an intelligent heroine who wasn't afraid to ask hard questions, and a truly heroic hero (okay, he might have been a bit too perfect. But that's the closest I can get to a criticism about A Heart Most Certain).

Lydia and Nicholas are both excellent characters-complete opposites, so of course we know they are both going to have to change their views. The setting was portrayed well, both in terms of time and place-and reinforced why I'm glad I live now, not then. It's also an example of how historical fiction can shine a light into some of our more modern social problems. 

Melissa Jagears is to be commended for not shying away from difficult subjects like prostitution, but showing a proper Christian response to the problem.

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free book for review.

Challenging
5 stars By Ibu Guru, Jul 03 2016
Times have changed but this story has a lot to think about if we apply it to the present abortion and foster parenting situation, where the church needs to get beyond just rhetoric.  This book isn't the usual run-of-the mill romance, so if you want something to think about,  enjoy!
