Award-winning author Melissa Jagears pens another historical fiction series, this one set in Kansas during the early 1900s. Here are reviews for the first two books in the series:
In A Heart Most Certain, Lydia King finds herself courted by Sebastian Little, an inspiring politician in Teaville. Lydia’s mother is getting sicker by the week, and her father’s debts are piling up. Marriage to Sebastian will secure her future, setting her dying mother’s mind at ease.
In A Love So True, Evelyn Wisely works at the Teasville mansion that rescues children from the red-light district, but her heart is for the women who live there as well. She wants to help them escape poverty and prostitution.
Like Jagears’ other novels, these books have solid character development, a clear faith element (without being preachy), and excellent historical detail. Jagears’ books are not just historical romance — these book deals with Christian charity, adoption, responsibility, compassion, and redemption in the community around them.
