“Why do I have to leave? Why didn’t my father make you my guardian?” Rose Williams looked at her governess and butler as tears welled up in her eyes. She couldn’t understand why her father didn’t think of these things before his death. She was an orphan now and had to move from Boston to Colorado to live with her uncle and his family.
All Rose ever wanted was the love of her father – not his money or prominence, just his love. After her mother’s early death, her father was all she had left. But, instead of reaching out to her and giving her the love she so desperately needed, his grief and pain made him pull away – leaving her to the care of his servants and staff. She grows up into a beautiful, headstrong, feisty, yet serious young woman, but no matter how hard she tries to ignore the emptiness in her heart, it was still there.
Terrified to meet the relatives she hadn’t seen since she was five years old, she makes the journey alone. She quickly realizes that her late father’s wealth – and with that, her dowry – made her a target for journalists and men everywhere.
Will her family welcome her with open arms, or are they taking her in because they have to? Is a man worthy of her love out there, or does everyone only care about her wealth?
Spoiler Free Review
Book ruts are one of the worst things for a bookworm, which is exactly what I have been in… yet again. Until now. I received an ARC of Healing the Orphaned Heart by Rebecca Lange. It is set to be released June 4th, 2021. Be sure to grab a copy on Amazon!
Have you ever read a book that was like taking a step back in time yet felt like you were living it in present time? That is exactly what Healing the Orphaned Heart delivers. Rebecca Lange writes beautifully. Amongst her words are hidden gems of lessons taught and lessons learned.
Many might disagree with me but this book reminded me of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Mass. Different writing style and completely different genres, however, things are not always what they seem in these books. Expect the unexpected and enjoy the ride.
There are multiple main characters in Healing the Orphaned Heart, not to mention character growth! Rose Williams, our heroine in this story, is a tender young woman, though many could say she is overly sensitive at times. If she were not tender she would not be Rose. Tender and courageous is what Rose Williams is. Given her back history it is a wonder that she has made it this far… but she has… step by step, brave and loving.
I wouldn’t change a thing about the ending. It was perfect! Don’t worry, you can definitely read this book without being hit with a major cliffhanger.
While I won’t spoil the book for anyone, I do have something to ask of Rebecca Lange. Please write another book in this universe and please let us learn more about Grayson!
If it wasn’t already obvious, I highly recommend reading Healing the Orphaned Heart by Rebecca Lange! I’m looking forward to reading more books by her in the future.
