I’m fairly new (within the last couple of years) to the Sarah M. Eden fan club, but oh boy, am I fully entrenched now. And after reading The Heart of A Vicar, I need to go back and meet the rest of the Jonquil brothers (and there are a lot of them).
About the Book
Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.
When Sarah’s ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there is only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late for second chances?
Other Books in the Series
In My Opinion
This is my first book in Sarah M. Eden’s Jonquil Brother’s series and while the story stands completely on its own, I did want to know more about everyone else I met in The Heart of a Vicar.
Harold (Holy Harry to his brothers) Jonquil was born to be a vicar but he no longer finds any joy in his occupation. Instead of a calling, it has become a chore. As readers take the journey of discovering Harry’s passions and joys, they will be encouraged and entertained. Even more so when Sarah Sarval, Harry’s first (and only) love, returns to London and issues a challenge.
Eden delivers a story of faith, family, love, and finding the life that makes a heart content. With touches of humor and a bit of adventure thrown in for good measure, there’s a lot to love about this book.
