Review of Amelia's Heartsong by Blossom Turner
Reeling from the pain of half-truths and broken promises, Amelia packs her heart away. Life will be much safer if she pours her focus into nursing.
Yet, like a beautiful tapestry, God weaves Bryon back into her life. When her nursing duties bring her face to face with the pain of her past, is it too late to stitch the threads of trust and love back together?
Amelia's Heartsong is the second book in the Shenandoah Brides series. The first one was about Katherine and her arranged marriage. This one is about Amelia. And, to be frank, I was not terribly invested in Amelia's story. I was curious to see what happened between her and Bryon, but I was more interested in the continuation of Katherine's story. What I supposed would be just a side plot seemed to end up taking over the whole novel. Not that it was a bad plotline; I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. But the book was not just about Amelia. About half or maybe even more focused on Katherine.
Another reason I may not have been as interested in Amelia's story is because, in general, I am not a big fan of romance. If I do read romance, there has to be a lot of humor or more to it than just a love story. And I feel like Katherine's plotline has more meat to it than Amelia's. Amelia's seemed to just focus on the romance, and that was not something I was particularly drawn to.
I had received a complimentary copy and this is my honest review.
