A HAVEN FOR HER HEART BY SUSAN ANNE MASON
ABOUT THE BOOK
Homeless after being released from a women's reformatory in 1939
Toronto, Olivia Rosetti is taken in by an angel of mercy, Ruth Bennington. The two discover they share a painful past and together decide to open a maternity home for troubled women.
Despite the success of the home, Olivia is haunted by her inhumane treatment at the reformatory and the way her newborn son was taken from her. She feels undeserving of love--until she meets businessman Darius Reed. Although his attention makes her heart soar, he can never learn of her past.
Greek widower Darius Reed is determined to protect his daughter from the prejudice that killed her mother. He'll ensure her future by marrying a woman from a respected Toronto family. But when Darius meets Olivia, he's immediately drawn to her beauty and compassion.
Can love prove stronger than prejudice and past mistakes? Or will Olivia's secrets destroy any chance at a future together?
Can I start off saying that this book has my most favorite color on the cover and that the cover is beautiful? I've never seen a cover quite like this one. I just love IIT and it matches the story inside beautifully.
Of course, Mason does an awesome job anyway no matter what story she writes.
This story seems a bit heavier than most but it is still wonderful and it offers hope to the women that were in certain circumstances in their lives at the moment.
I like how Mason adds historical facts along with her own imagination that brings her characters to life so that we may love them too.
Let me tell you I really admired Olivia and Ruth. I loved them for what they did and stood their ground against the odds.
This book deserves more than five stars because it's a can't put down book.
