This one made a great late night read It was a little predictable okay, so I predicted most of it, but I think that s due to me thinking through story structure , but I suppose that s what made it nice for a late night read There wasn t a crazy amount of tension, just mainly a sweet story There was conflict, yes, but I can t go into that lest I spoil anything I thoroughly enjoyed Sadie There were many ways in which I could identify with her her dedication to the children, namely I also appreciat [...]

Written in the simple, but compelling style of Janette Oke, Anne Mateer weaves a sweet, heartwarming story of faith, sacrifice, and loyalty.Miss Sadie Sillsby made a charming heroine with a strong faith and a touching passion for children I found myself able to relate to her in some ways, from her love for kids to her exasperation with math I really enjoyed her enemy to friend relationship with Miranda, and Mrs Fore s mother hen tendencies to all living at the Raystown Home for Orphan and Friend [...]

Dnf It started well and showed promise, but very quickly descended into the painful and predictable I found the mc hard to like and rather frustrating Historical Christian fiction isn t my favourite genre so I guess I shouldn t be surprised But my husband got it as a freebie for me and I wanted to try.

Anne Mateer tugs on heartstrings in A Home for My Heart, a gentle love story The characters and setting combine to create a tender plot Although it is slow in places, there is enough conflict to keep attention and interest Not only is Sadie nursing a breaking heart and settling into a new job, but the futures of the Raystown Home and its children are at stake It was nearly impossible not to be moved by the plight of the orphans and think about real life orphans of the past and the present Sadie [...]

Wings of a Dream is still deemed my favorite after I finished this book, but A Home for My Heart held just as good lessons and Christianity to it that I look forward to reading by this author.Sadie s struggle was real I could sympathize with her confusion of having a relationship and working at the orphanage There were times I wanted to hit her on her head, but her character became real because she had flaws Sadie s relationship with Miranda made me happy I m glad what came of it and was pleas [...]

I was excited to find a signed copy of this book by Anne Mateer sitting on the shelf at a book store After reading two other books by her, I was excited to get this one and begin This book was just as good as the other two I read This author is so talented and her strong faith in Jesus Christ shows in her writing The theme of all her books that I ve read so far is clearly spoken in Proverbs 16 9, A man s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps With each book, Mrs Mateer shows the mai [...]

This was a library copy.A fast moving tale of dreams and faith in an orphanage in a bygone era Another fine, fine book by one of my favorite authors, Anne Mateer I love the story, based on an historical place using fictitious plot and believable characters, their complex problems, and their personal God.My favorite characters were Blaine and Miranda, because they were faithful and steady in their faith and work They are both pictures of God s grace manifest in their lives and in their actions to [...]

I am so torn on this book I think I would give it a 3.5 I enjoyed reading it but it was so frustrating that the main character was soooo naive Almost to the point of missing things that were RIGHT in front of her face She was extremely immature and I kept thinking she was going to get better as the book progressed but right up to the last chapter she was accusing people without proper knowledge UGH I mean I know she was young and was taking on too much responsibility, but still I kept waiting It [...]

I enjoyed the behind the scenes look at running an orphanage and the constant struggle to bring in donations and funding Sadie was far from perfect, but her vulnerabilities made her easy to relate to She took on a big job that she thought she was prepared for, but had her eyes opened to how an administrative job has different challenges I felt that the romantic chemistry was lacking with her and Blaine I would have liked to see background about how their relationship developed in order to have [...]

A Home For My Heart by Anne Mateer reminded me purely in a good way of some of my favorite episodes of Little House on The Prairie He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not It is not that these episodes are perfectly perfect Almanzo s decision making at the start is problematic at best But his sacrificial love, his working extra hard to make money to help Laura and Mary out so they can open the school for the blind than makes up for it Not to mention all the lovely Nellie and Percival bits Sadie and Blaine [...]
