If you like the novels of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie’s inspirational romance set against the backdrop of World War One!
Even at a young age, Ada Thorne knew that she would marry only for love, never money. So when she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Ned Henley, the lowly gamekeeper on a neighboring estate, she defies her parents and society by eloping with him to London to build a new life.
Without her family’s support, life in the city is far more difficult than the one of ease and privilege Ada has always known. She’ll find herself relentlessly tested in ways she never imagined—especially when Ned, answering the call of duty, enlists to serve his country in World War One.
Alone and near poverty with a child to raise, Ada’s resolve will be strained at every turn. And as she struggles to remain true to her convictions and live life on her own terms, Ada will embark on a journey of courage, faith, and love that will surpass even her own humble dreams . . .
Advanced Praise for the Book
“Stacy Henrie possesses superior storytelling skills, her historical accuracy and attention to detail are unsurpassed, and she knows how to create characters we can identify with and whom we really care for.” —Fresh Fiction
In My Opinion (Review)
Young, naïve Ada is determined to marry only for love.
The Keeper of her Heart is a bit different—in the best way—from the majority of historical romances. The focus on the courtship is short, the first couple chapters. Instead, the story focuses on what comes after the falling in love/honeymoon period.
Ada has questions, concerns, and fears approaching her marriage. She’s left a life of wealth and leisure to marry a gamekeeper. Moving to London, living without servants, a new job for her husband, and more challenges confront her. Happy times are interrupted by pain, heartache, and loss.
Through it all, this book weaves World War I history and life in London into the story. As readers follow Ada’s journey, her sprouting faith is encouraging in the midst of the challenges thrown out her. Will she lean into the God who holds her or turn away?
Stacy Henrie’s newest book is a reminder of the One who gives hope in the midst of our darkest hours as well as second chances—at forgiveness, healing, and even love.
