Book Review: A Home For My Heart by Anne Mateer


downloadA Home For My Heart is one of the best works of fiction I have read this year! I wasn’t able to read it in one sitting due to my schedule, but I couldn’t stop thinking about what was going to happen next and was so excited to continue reading it.

This is the story of a 23-year old woman named Sadie. Sadie works in a home for orphaned and abandoned children and receives the opportunity she has always wanted – the chance to run the home. However, this decision comes with consequences, as she is forced to rethink her future as she had hoped it would be in order to have this position.

This book is a great example of God working things out even when we can’t see what He is doing. Through the twists and turns of the novel, the end ends up being far better than Sadie ever could have imagined, and despite her efforts to take control of her circumstances. The outcome required her to have faith that God was truly in control.

The book is set in Central Pennsylvania in 1910, and the author did a wonderful job with capturing both the time and setting throughout the novel.

This is a great piece of historical fiction!

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
