The Heart's Appeal (London Beginnings #2) Reviews
Remember ‘The Captain’s Daughter‘ that I reviewed last summer, June to be exact? Yes, it’s been more than a minute. I knew when I chose to read this book that it was a continuation of that series but it didn’t really sink in all the months later when I read the book. Suffice it to say, this book reads really well as a standalone but I strongly urge you to read the first book in the series. And then, like me, wait with baited breath for the next one. If you recall from book one there are three da ...more
The Heart’s Appeal is the second book from Jennifer Delamere’s London Beginnings series. I really enjoyed the first book of the series, but loved, loved, loved this one! I was hooked as soon as I was introduced to Julia Bernay. What a strong, determined, and independent woman for her time in history. She was not going to let anyone take her down. What a fabulous way to introduce her to the other main character, Michael Stephenson. She is his hero. How awesome is that?
It seems to me Jennifer Del ...more
Title: The Heart’s Appeal (London Beginnings #2)
Author: Jennifer Delamere
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
The London Beginning series begins with the novel titled, The Captain’s Daughter. Here, in the second book, readers get to focus on the middle sister, Julia, whose hope is to become a physician and go to Africa as a missionary. The year is 1881 and in London women were to be home or if they wanted to do some work, there were few opportunities. Julia is attendi ...more
What a delightful and intriguing read! Entirely unpredictable and packed to the brim with such a variety of people and character, that despite it being one of the lengthier novels I've read in a while - I finish it feeling quite satisfied.
I never quite know when these kind of stories are written, to what extent the author will draw on modern day attitudes and try to throw them into a historical setting. It can utterly ruin the accuracy of a period. My lack of expertise on this subject leads me ...more
I received this book for free from the Bethany House Blogger Review Program in exchange for an honest review.
Full disclaimer, I did not read the first book in this series, which is about Julia’s sister but this did not affect my comprehension of this book. You could read this book as a standalone if you wanted to and still be able to enjoy it.
I always love historical fiction novels about women forging their own paths, so naturally I liked this.
I enjoyed the medical aspect of the book. At time ...more
While this is book 2 in a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. You read some characters that were introduced in book 1 however the plot makes perfect sense without having read book 1, although i suggest reading it, as it is a true delight. This book is so beautiful and vivid in a sense of historical detail. This book has a truly beautiful moral to it that i don’t want to spoil here, so you will have to read it for itself. I was rooting for Julia and Michael the entire time as I feel that the ...more
Continuing to enjoy this series about three sisters that grew up in an orphanage. In The Heart's Appeal, the main character is Julia. Julia has been trained as a nurse and wants to purse her education further to become a doctor. She wants to be a doctor in Africa.
This second book in a series about three sisters who grew up in an orphanage was every bit as good as the first book. I was looking forward to Julia's story and it did not disappoint. It is very well written with heartwarming romance, historically forward thinking men & women, bits of exciting history, and a background theme of inspiring faith.
*Thanks to Celebrate Lit for a complimentary copy of this book. I was not paid nor required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are my ...more
