Jody Hedlund’s ‘Hearts Made Whole’ Prize Pack Giveaway and Facebook Party

{MORE ABOUT HEARTS MADE WHOLE}

Hearts Made Whole (Bethany House, June 2015)
Can she forgive the hurting man who costs her the role she loves?
After her father’s death, Caroline Taylor has grown confident running the Windmill Point Lighthouse. But in 1865 Michigan, women aren’t supposed to have such roles, so it’s only a matter of time before the lighthouse inspector appoints a new keeper–even though Caroline has nowhere else to go and no other job available to her.

Ryan Chambers is a Civil War veteran still haunted by the horrors of battle. He’s secured the position of lighthouse keeper mostly for the isolation–the chance to hide from his past is appealing. He’s not expecting the current keeper to be a feisty and beautiful woman who’s angry with him for taking her job and for his inability to properly run the light. When his failings endanger others, he and Caroline realize he’s in no shape to run the lighthouse, but he’s unwilling to let anyone close enough to help. Caroline feels drawn to this wounded soul, but with both of them relying on that single position, can they look past their loss to a future filled with hope…and possibly love?

MY REVIEW:  I must admit that this is my very first read from this author and I am really excited to read more from this author.

This is the second book in the Beacons of Hope Series.   The setting is after the Civil War and at Windmill Point Lighthouse Michigan in 1865.   Caroline Taylor has been helping her father run the lighthouse.  Caroline's sister Sarah is sick and in trying to get her the much needed medicine tragedy strikes.

Caroline finds herself trying to keep her family together in a society that frowns on a woman doing what they deem as "man's" work.   How will she be able to keep her family together?   How will she manage with no home and no way to support her brothers and sisters?   

Ryan is the newly hired lightkeeper and is recovering from injuries sustained in the War. Can he heal from his physical and emotional wounds from the War?  What will it cost him? 

Can he and Caroline move past their hurts, loses and find love or will they let it get in the way and will they endanger others in the process.
