Heartwrenching
4 stars By BecInChina, Feb 12 2017
What a poignant tale of brokenness, forgiveness, and coming to recognize the gifts that sometimes come wrapped in drabby brown.

4 stars By Lynne Stringer, May 07 2015
I enjoyed Hearts Awakening, which went a little differently from the average Christian romance novel, and that was a nice surprise. Also, Jackson was, at times, difficult to like, but since I could understand his lack of trust, it made him more real. I often felt the Christian element was being forced in and sometimes the dialogue seemed a little stilted, but it was still highly entertaining.

A lovely historical romance
5 stars By Audrey, Apr 12 2014
This book was a beautiful story of forgiveness and letting go of past hurts. Ellie was such a great character. I enjoyed the fact that she was described as a plain and unattractive spinster. So different from the usual romance novels where the main character is usually perfect. Ellie portrayed strong character and convictions and that made her the attractive person she is. I loved how she stood up for herself and did not dissolve with being faced with difficult situations. Jackson's journey was also very well written.Altogether a lovely story.

Love realised
3 stars By Rochelle, NSW, Mar 24 2014
What a great story! Ellie is a strong, caring, loving, guiding character. Have so enjoyed getting to know her heart, her longings and seeing the many ways that she continued to give of herself even when hurting. Jackson is tough, good looking and learning how to let go of life's woundings. I like that these two characters deal with real and everyday stuff of life. Even though a historical setting, we still feel and deal with many of the things that these two characters do. 
Delia Parr beautifully walks Ellie and Jackson through times of misunderstanding and awkward communication to a place of forgiveness of each other and things in their pasts to find that they love and treasure and need each other. 
Really enjoyed this story of traditions, society's harshness, belonging, acceptance and in the end Love. 
Enjoy it. I have.
